The heroine of the novel, a white British woman, travels into the French Sahara against the advice of her peers and is kidnapped by the titular sheikh.

While they are initially at odds, they eventually fall in love. Rudolph Valentino, the star of the silent film The Sheik , was one of the first popular male sex symbols in the cinema and had quite a following. While the heyday of this par- ticular genre ended with the sound era and World War II, the sheikh hero has continued on as a staple of the romantic fiction industry [e.

Currently, Harlequin for example publishes at least one sheikh romance every few months. Yet it is also an incredibly detailed Orient, replete with Orientalist facts.

The sheikhs in the sheikh romance are often from completely fictional Arab states or sheikdoms. The creation of these fantasy lands is often accompanied by the presence of a map, locating the imaginary country in real geographical space. While it may be true that the setting of the Orient may make it more susceptible to this amalgam of reality and fantasy, Bach fails to consider the fact that in And You Can Be My Sheikh contemporary romance novels it is common to have imaginary towns, and sometimes even imaginary countries, especially when royalty is concerned.

Similarly, the creation of fantasy Arabian states in the sheikh romance may allow for spaces for other anxieties to play out. This is a well- known feature of Orientalism.

Ori- entalist discourse appears not only in written texts, but also in visual ones, and thus the cover art of the sheikh romances offers the first location of the detailed. Cover art for sheikh romances acts to frame the novels as belonging to a particular subgenre of romance through par- ticipation in Orientalist conventions.

Cover art, then, echoes nineteenth-century Orientalist paintings, particularly those featuring odalisques. Both types of pictures portray pale women in reclining poses, with an emphasis on the display of female flesh with the addition, in the romantic cover art, of the display of male flesh.

The hero is wearing a kaffiyeh and a western style dress—shirt and pants. The heroine sits on brightly colored pillows with gold trim. The back- ground evokes the interior spaces of Orientalist paintings, with stone archways, light and darkness, and a door leading to somewhere further inside.

There even appears to be a pool in the background, recalling the popular baths of the Orientalist imagination. The coloring and scenery suggest a fantastical space, but it is also a space full of rich detail.

It is through the details that the fantasy world, the Orient, is captured. These details are seen as knowledge which could justify their romance reading It also creates a position for the reader where the fantasy world of the Orient is knowable and containable through its details.

One of the central spaces for this fascination is the harem.

Empty Harems and Gender Anxieties Just as Orientalist paintings pictured a harem full of women, waiting for the European man to enter, so sheikh romances reference an empty harem, waiting for the white Anglo woman to enter. The harem acts both as an atmospheric Orientalist detail and as a pointer toward the issues of gender relations. Until he im- prisoned her with his concubines!

Was Ali creating a desert fantasy to amuse Frances? Or was his marriage proposal serious?

It evokes the romanticism and eroticism of the Orientalized, while only containing the heroine. None of these sheikhs seem to actually have harems. The harem appears less a reference to an actuality, than as an index pointing to the conventions of Orientalism and to the knowledge that the hero could have his choice of women, accentuating his choice of only one: the Anglo heroine.

He moves from a potential Oriental style of relationships to a bourgeois romantic monogamous western style. The Oriental past is still visible in the harem emptied of its Oriental women while the future is found in the Anglo woman.

The appearance of the harem also points toward anxieties about gender relations.

In these cases, modernizing always means west- ernizing, expressed in terms of gender relations, hospitals, and charities for children e.

Thus a commitment to monogamy brings about a just society. Dark and Desirable Men While an Oriental setting with its empty harem is usual in the sheikh romance, the sheikh and his dark status are the most central signifiers.

There is a strict division of Orientalized roles within the sheikh romance. The most obvious of these is that it is always9 the hero who is the Oriental—this is a genre of sheikhs, not of the harem girls and odalisques popular in Orientalist painting or of Arabian princesses or models or journalists. That is, if there is a nonwesterner, or a non-Anglo-Saxon among the central characters, it will tend to be the hero and not the heroine.

Yet the sheikh can occupy this position in part because of his liminality. He is dark, but not black. He is Orientalized and yet he also participates in an international cosmopolitan culture—he is often a type of international playboy, with business and political interests all over the world.

The Sheikh’s Virgin Bride by Holly Rayner

His is a desiring and desirable masculinity. The hero of the sheikh romance is especially characterized by terms of shade: black, dark, tawny, and bronzed—a visible gradation of race and ethnicity. This darkness is also intensely sexual. His luxuriant black hair shone. His tawny skin glowed with health and his stunning bronze eyes gleamed like precious metal, both brilliant and unreadable.

He is dark, but not too dark. Golden, bronzed, tawny, maybe even brown, but never black. He is exotic enough to be de- sirable, but not too exotic to be incorporated into the white Anglo- Saxon empire. Marrying the Empire So, in the sheikh romances the Orient in the character of the sheikh is masculinized, a desirer, a subject, in a position of power.

For all the problems to be resolved, the hero must capitulate and admit his love for the heroine, acknowledging her own power. Inasmuch as she enters the narrative with the cultural imperialism of the West at her back, the heroine occupies a dominant position as a desiring subject partaking in the western discourse of Orientalism.

As a woman [. The hero, while an object of desire, is also a stranger, and an Orientalized stranger at that. So, while differences of ethnicity, race, and culture become a terrain on which to work out issues of gender relations, the reverse also occurs and the question of how to interact with the Orient is played out on the terrain of heterosexual romance.

His transformation into whiteness is closely related to her own character. It is she, I would argue, who tames and redeems him—and not, as in the novel, the other way round—and largely through her Christian faith.

Thus, the immigrant [. And so, libidinal attraction to a dangerous type is justified and legitimate for the sake of a national melting pot, paid for by the exclusion of the black man. The Oriental Other must unite with the West in the figure of the white woman.
