In this "page-turning memoir of decadence and faith" ( Publishers Weekly , starred review), Jill Dodd writes movingly and evocatively about her journey from Paris model to Saudi billionaire's harem wife to multi-million-dollar business entrepreneur.

In the 1980s, Jill Dodd determined that her ticket out of an abusive home was to make it as a top model in Paris. Armed with only her desire for freedom and independence, she embarks on an epic journey that takes her to uncharted territory--the Parisian fashion industry with all its beautiful glamour and its ugly underbelly of sex, drugs, and excess.

From there, Jill begins an eye-opening roller-coaster adventure that includes trips to Monte Carlo, sexual exploitation, and falling in love with one of the richest men in the world, soon becoming one of his many wives--until she ultimately finds the courage to walk away from it all and rebuild her dreams. In The Currency of Love , she "writes earnestly and refreshingly about learning many of life's more difficult lessons the hard way" ( Kirkus Reviews ) with page-turning accounts of her struggles and triumphs as she paved her path through a dangerous and seductive world, before ultimately coming into her own as the founder and creator of global fashion line, ROXY.

This "raw and inspiring story" (PopSugar) with a feminist fairy tale twist reveals how one woman chose to live her life without forfeiting her independence, ambition, creative expression, and free spirit, all while learning one invaluable lesson: nothing is worth the sacrifice of her integrity, inner peace, and spirit.
