“The servant was naked and had a slender, supple body. She took one of Inaya's legs, leaning the princess' foot on her shoulder. Gently, she slipped the sponge along her leg, then along her thigh where she lingered.”
Inaya, princess of the Caliphate of Cordoba, is famous for her prose and open-mindedness that provoke the wrath of clergymen. Dressed in transparent tunics, she praises the qualities of the mind in both men and women and promotes talent above all. That is why her house of poetry is open to all, without distinction of gender or social rank.
It was during one of her evenings of recitation that she met a woman of fiery beauty: Tasnim. As talented as she is passionate, this girl will attract everyone’s attention but mainly that of our princess.
