Come and join me in a wonderful story about legend, mystery and love.


Elizabeth Summers has come to Egypt in 1892 to dig at Akhetaten. Many English explorers are digging in Egypt with the promise of riches and glory. Elizabeth has come to study Egypt’s rich history and she will soon find herself becoming part of it.


Jabari bin Tarik Hassid, sheikh of the Khamsin warriors is outraged at the desecration of his ancestors burying places. When he comes upon invaders of the tomb that he has sworn to protect, he will not spare the lives of those who dare to steal what is sacred to his people.


When Elizabeth is swept away by the sheikh of the dessert warriors, she finds herself in the arms of the most beautiful male she has ever seen. Will a love, that for centuries has been buried, be reincarnated, or will Elizabeth perish at the hands of this noble warrior?


Ms. Vanak writes a stimulating and fascinating story of history, tradition and a love that truly stands the test of time. Her visual usage of caves and pyramids will take the reader right to Egypt and its heat, as well as its beauty. Elizabeth and Jabari are destined to be together. Their passion is intense and their love is endearing. Throw in the ‘bad guys’ and the story is complete.


This is a fantastic book and I would truly recommend this as your next book buy. Curl up by the fire, with a nice cup of hot tea and escape a cold winter’s night for the fiery heat and passion of Egypt.
