Publisher's Summary

Determined to prove her worth as a budding archeologist, Genisse Braxton vows to solve one of the world's greatest mysteries - to find the location of the lost city of Zerzura. Unfortunately, no man dares take the risk of escorting the resolute young scholar across the open desert. But on her way to Egypt, Genisse engages in a daring deception - she will switch places with Mildred Whimpelhall, who is traveling to meet her fiancé.

Cynical adventurer Jim Owen will do anything to escape the dark secrets of his troubled past. Betrayed by the woman he loved, scorned by proper society, he agrees to carry out a danger-fraught task: escort Mildred Whimpelhall across a lawless desert to her intended. But Jim is about to learn that "Mildred" isn't exactly what she seems... and the dangers they face together are eclipsed only by an even greater peril: falling in love, against all reason, with another guy's bride.

    "4+Stars: A fantastic listen! Highly recommended."


    This my first Connie Brockway, though it will def not be my last. This is a unique story that takes place in Egypt; it has danger, romance, scandal, hidden treasures, and fabulous chemistry between the H/h! The book was better than I expected.

    I hope for more books by this author (Audible, please give us more of Brockway's back catalogue!) I was also very impressed with the reading by Justine Eyre, who has become a favorite narrator of mine.

    "Loved narrator!"

    The ending was predictable. Though It was romantic. The narrator was able to maintain my interest by her assorted voices.

    "A Sweet Romantic Adventure."

    When I started listening to this book I thought the characters had a lot of similarities to the main characters of the movie The Mummy. This is fun romantic adventure through the Egypt's desert, I enjoyed this book quite a bit and would be willing to try other books written by Connie Brockway, especially if they come on sale. I had quite a few chuckles at the antics that Genisse would get up to and who doesn't like a dashing if not dented hero to come to the rescue. I also liked how Genisse learned to like herself no matter what others said about her. Narrator does a good job, her English accent is pleasant to listen to.

    "Egypt, a daring woman and dangerous man"

    An Incredible Bargain!!! I Loved this book. It is the first Brockway book I read, and I cannot say enough good things about it. I almost never 'reread' a book, but this book has some of the Best romance language I've ever read. Literally teared up... pretty rare for me. I was fascinated by the historical review, loved the heroines moxie--no dumb heroine here!

    "Coulda' been better.."
    Any additional comments?

    For all you history lovers out there this book is for you! I don't mind a little history with my romance but this was way to much.
    And to the reviewer who said Ginny was TSTL I think you're wrong. Ginny was a little goofy and a little clumsy and that's what made her so likable. And I really liked Jim.
    The secondary characters were great: Haji, Jock, Magi, Mildred and (sorta) Pomfrey.
    Over all it was a good romance, good sexual tension, good sex BUT there was just too much history. I know a lot of you will be interested in what was happening in Egypt at the turn of the century but that's not for me.

    As to the narrator: This is the first time I've been disappointed in Ms. Eyre. She does all the British accents just fine, male and female, but she can't seem to do an American male. It's like she can do one or the other, male voice or American accent but she can't do both.
    Oh, well, I've listened to a lot of books by her and they were all great so I won't hold this one against her.

    "fun read"

    the only thing that bothered me was the repetitive nonsense between the 2 lovers - it was as if for 2 very smart people they were incapable of rational thought and it got very irritating.
    was amusing and had some great dialog - enjoyed it a lot.

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    "Dimwitted"

    This is a book I might try reading myself. I normally like Justine Eyre's narration. But the main character sounded so silly and dimwitted I couldn't get beyond the first hour and a half. At first I thought it was the narration and I do think she tried a little too hard to sound breathy and naive. But I think it was the character herself. All of her actions seemed to support the opinions of the people she resented because they thought she was an airhead. She was an airhead and if she were my daughter or sister or ward I would not have trusted her to cross the street on her own, much less travel to India. Usually when a heroine is presented as such a lightweight, the author spends the book proving she is not. In this case, everything I read seemed to support that she was.

    The book has gotten such great reviews that I am inclined to think it was a combination of the character and the narration that set me off. Maybe if I read it to myself, I can find some sympathy for the twit.
