Lynda X November 11, at From the Paperback edition. It had been Rabi who”d kidnapped her. Your flesh is like the desert sand, warmth and shifting strength beneath its golden color. I own several of this author’s books and will definitely read them! She glanced about, trying to determine where they”d gone and if she could go conniie. I don’t know exactly what. This is a terrific book! Then she sees the man in black, galloping through the Egyptian desert on a pure white steed.
Desird of letting Blake help him, Harry sends Blake away and faces the bad guys alone, with bad results. The Egypt backdrop is great, very refreshing.
Thus begins this truly fun, character driven, adventurous read. After getting a little restless with romances lately, particularly historical ones, I’m glad to have read this one. Wise lad, she thought darkly. Yoh cocked his head, his eyes traveling lingeringly over her body, and she recognized the potent attraction other women must feel when Harry looked at them this way.
