I enjoyed this historical romance set in the Egyptian desert in the late 1890's. The story was full of adventure, it felt like The Mummy movie but with an Egyptian/Desert Lord hero. I enjoyed the feel of the book, it included a lot of details about the location. The heroine was slightly annoying sometimes but I still enjoyed the overall story and the hero was really hot.

Still reading, and doing my best to ignore the errors poppy up due, I'm sure, to OCR scanning software. But this one. Well, the sentence below sent me into gales of laughter.

Please, Bonnie, Please go back and proof your copy then update the Smashwords file. I beg you! Assure me "tunas" is a typo

lost interest, story could not hold my attention.

Elizabeth is in Egypt to steal a herbal code imbedded in an ancient but buried disk, the Almha. What she doesn't count on is the fierce opposition from Sheik Jabari and his tribe, protectors of the Almha who are just as determined she will not be successful. It would have saved an entire book if she'd simply been honest with Jabari from the start but then where's the fun and debate in that?

For an intelligent woman knowledgeable in the 18th century dynasty Elizabeth was too dense for believabi...more
Timeless Romance
I absolutely love this book. The legend is so amazing and the love between Elizabeth and teh Sheik was O-M-G. I can never get enough of this book. I love the fact that Elizabeth changed the Sheik for the better of course. And I love the fact that the Sheik loved her Elizabeth first. there was unforgettable parts in this book.
