Action, adventure, and romance in an exotic land! Mustafà, the Bey of Algiers, has grown tired of his wife and wants to marry her off to his Italian slave Lindoro. But Lindoro has only one thing on his mind: escaping servitude and returning to Italy to be with his fiancée, Isabella. Unbeknownst to Lindoro, Isabella’s rescue mission has shipwrecked near Algiers. Mustafà becomes enchanted by the Italian beauty, but Isabella is not like any other woman the Bey has encountered. Can Isabella use her wits to free herself, her fiancé, and her people?
