"Cleopatra's Perfume" in Polish

My Harlequin Spice Novel, Cleopatra’s Perfume, goes on sale today in Poland as “Perfumy Kleopatry.” (Harlequin MIRA Stars)

The story takes place in 1939 in exotic places–Cairo, London, Berlin–when the world was teetering on the brink of war. It’s the story of Lady Eve Marlowe “who has everything she needs to lead the most decadent of lives: money, nobility, nerve…and an insatiable appetite for sexual adventure…

“She also has a singular treasure: a fragrance of ancient origin said to have been prepared for the Queen of Kings herself. Seductive, irresistible, even mystical—it is the scent of pure sensuality.”

Poland figures into the story, as evidenced by this short excerpt from Cleopatra’s Perfume:

I had been in Cairo for weeks, doing my best to avoid the realization the world was on the verge of total war. I had not believed everything would explode on a late August night in 1939, but I knew a change was coming…an unexpected change. What had begun as a wild adventure of scent, pleasure and submission was about to turn into something more salacious, more deadly and I couldn’t stop it, as I couldn’t stop Hitler from racing toward his mad scheme of world domination.

His target was Poland. Mine was Ramzi.

The Fuehrer was only hours away from raping and pillaging the defenseless country. I was minutes away from executing a night of scandal, whispered renditions of which would be told over and over again on the back streets of Cairo, in the bazaar, hotel bars, anywhere people leaned forward with curiosity to hear about the night Cleopatra danced nude.

Here is the gorgeous graphic on the Harlequin MIRA Stars page with a translation of the Polish text:
 

War, sex, espionage, honor…

This novel has everything you need

A fast read

Exotic places, exceptional heroes

And a large dose of erotic humor
 

What is your favorite perfume?

What sensual memories does it evoke in you when you smell it?

If anyone in Poland happens to pick up a copy of “Perfumy Kleopatry,” I’d love to know what the perfume surprise smells like!!  Drop me a note in the Comments section, please.
