    I lost my review last night when GR said it was doing maintenance. Note to self: copy and paste! Despite giving this a low rating, the author has some interesting ideas, and I would consider reading books of hers further down the line. Maybe. If the writing has improved and if the price is right. I was drawn to this by the setting, primarily. It is 1922 on an Egyptian archaeological dig. The time is a little later than what I typically read, but I do think it is an interesting time period. I love I lost my review last night when GR said it was doing maintenance.

If the writing has improved and if the price is right. I was drawn to this by the setting, primarily. It is 1922 on an Egyptian archaeological dig. The time is a little later than what I typically read, but I do think it is an interesting time period. I love archeological settings - in movies and in books. There were some interesting dynamics - Victorian versus modern thought, inter-racial pairings, strong family bonds, and a college-educated female archaeologist. So the ingredients were right for something delicious, but she forgot the key ingredient - telling us a story. In the end, there were some crazy storylines, two-dimensional characters, and two MCs that are going at it like rabbits with no consideration to pregnancy. Given the ingredients, this could have been Devine, but it was a tall order. It would be difficult to bring all this together for a seasoned author, and this author felt very green in many ways. She relied too much on stereotypes and the descriptions felt Generic. Many of the plot twists felt implausible, especially dealing with the villain. Also, the twists were often telegraphed, rather than subtlety foreshadowed. All in all, it just wasn't a satisfying read, which is disappointing.

    First and Last book by this author I skimmed the last 25%. By that time, I really didn't care what happened; but I hate to not finish a book. All of the characters were inconsistent but one-dimensional caricatures. There was no romance or build up to events. Just wham bam thank you ma'am with descriptive erotic scenes. I never liked Winston. Charles was no better, just different. In the beginning, I liked Emma and thought her too good for either man, but I lost respect for her too.

    It is the 1920ties and a young female archaeologist accompanies her father on a dig in Egypt joined by the rest of her family and some friends and colleagues of her father. There she meets a fellow archaeologist who is half English half Egyptian. Happily in love she suddenly is in the middle of danger when one of their team is murdered and it seems she is also a target. It is a nice read but I am sure a normal excavation would take a lot longer but who cares. This is just escapism reading.

For the people who cannot stand sex in novels you best keep your heartbeat evenly and skip this novel as the couple does a lot of coupling.

    Plot good...contains explicit sex scenes I liked the plot, enjoyed the historical information. Characters really didn't come to life for me..rather boring themselves. so nuclear in many spots, as the pronouns at times left me wondering to whom the author was referring. But the sex was just sickening. They were short scenes, fairly detailed, but the large number of them made up for the detail. Would you watch a XXX rated movie? Then you shouldn't read this book. Pornography, in any form, is wrong. Plot good...contains explicit sex scenes I liked the plot, enjoyed the historical information.

    The Sex Scenes Diminish This Book I am used to historical romances mixing sex with the story line, but it was a jarring combination n this book. The setting and history were given a lot of attention and provided a backdrop for a growing love between Emma and Winston . But the sex scenes were graphic, unappealing and unbelievable for the time period. Parents would not be so sanguine and Emma would have been more closely chaperoned. It is too bad when the readers reaction is yuck instead of wonderi The Sex Scenes Diminish This Book I am used to historical romances mixing sex with the story line, but it was a jarring combination n this book.

    Wonderful romantic mystery I felt as if I was in Egypt with the characters, love in the moonlight, murder and betrayal by the tombs- a never ending roller coaster ride of murder,mayhem and stolen kisses!

    Engaging Interesting read, though I felt there was more early 21st century in the book than early 20th century. I realize the dig was not the main focus of the book, but more detail would have been enlightening.

    Good idea about the daughter of an Egyptologist who follows in footsteps. However there was far too much gratuitous sex which wasn't needed and ruined. I ended up skimming much of it.

    While the writing is decent, the story isn't compelling and it basically is about their lovemaking. I was bored. Didnt finish. While the writing is decent, the story isn't compelling and it basically is about their lovemaking. I was bored. Didnt finish.

    Read or re-read Elizabeth Peters instead. Silly characters and not much real archeology. Couldn't hold a candle to even the least enjoyable Amelia Peabody book.

    This is a wildly wonderful book that has it all. It's set in the exotic location of Egypt and the pyramids, back in the 20s I believe. Wonderful characters and an awesome story. There's murders and mystery, and a great whodunit. This is a wildly wonderful book that has it all. It's set in the exotic location of Egypt and the pyramids, back in the 20s I believe.

    A great read! Once again, I'm amazed at the talented writing of this gifted author, Nicola Italia. This is, yet, another example of her exceptional skill and creativity. Using The Valley of the Kings in Egypt as the setting for a historical romance novel makes it all the more interesting. The main characters, Emma and Winston, draw you into their attraction for one another in a subtle build up into a steamy romance! Wow! Love it!

The main characters, Emma and Winston, draw you into their attraction for one another in a subtle build up into a steamy romance! Wow! Love it! The early 1920's, women's rights, Victorian values, interracial relationships and archeological digs are all molded and shaped into this wonderful and suspenseful story. I would highly recommend this very attractive novel to fans of historical romance fiction! Love Italia!

    I really love the early period novels, and this one was one that satisfied as it was set in the 1920's. The lead character is a very intelligent woman and highly educated. I really enjoyed reading about the varying relationships of the main character in the novel, especially with both of her parents but it really struck a chord with me the relationship with the character's mother. This novel has it all, suspense, mystery, danger and of course love. I really love the early period novels, and this one was one that satisfied as it was set in the 1920's.

    Another captivating novel by Nicola Italia. After reading my first novel by her, The Boston Girl, I did not know if this one would be as good. It was amazing. I felt like I was on the archaeological dig in Egypt with Emma and gang. Now I desire to go to Egypt. Like The Boston Girl, it was historical, a romance, and mystery rolled into one fabulous novel. Can't wait to get my hands on another novel by Italia. Another captivating novel by Nicola Italia. After reading my first novel by her, The Boston Girl, I did not know if this one would be as good.
