From Brilliant Egyptologist Alexandra Quinn is stunned when the man who’d shattered her young heart rescues her from an intruder at the last minute. Forced to work with the rakish Lord, they must identify a cunning murderer who’s left a blood-drenched trail from Cairo to London. Alex knows better than to trust Benedict, but the wicked promise in his kiss tempts her.

Benedict Weston, Viscount Marlsbrook, never wanted to be a hero. For years, he’s plundered antiquities in his quest to restore his family’s debt-ridden estate. Now, a killer has targeted the only woman he’s ever loved—the woman he craves with a soul-deep hunger. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect Alex—even from himself.


My Rating: 3 stars out of 5

Let me begin by saying that I definitely think this book will appeal to fans of historical romance novels, and especially those who have read the other books in this series (you do not have to have done so in order to enjoy this one however). I enjoy this author's writing style and the way she is able to blend in romance with mystery and just a bit of danger. In that aspect, this book was very pleasing. 

However, this story didn't seem to have the same attention grabbing flow that her other novels had. Instead of being glued to my kindle desperate for more, I found it easy to put it down and go do all the adult things I should have been doing in the first place. The plot was good, the characters were interesting (and it was nice seeing characters from the other two stories pop in as well), but there was just something missing with this one that made it more tedious than exciting. 

I will say this story did have its moments, and on the whole I am positive I will most likely be in the minority with my thoughts and opinions on this one.
