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.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
What a surprise 'coz I hadn't heard of the writer - but it was an entertaining and funny lighthearted listen that sucks you in from the start - most enjoyable.
Worth a credit? Absolutely YES
Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
This is a wonderfully written light romance that had me chuckling frequently. Connie Brockway's humour is very subtle, but it is shined brightly with Justine Eyre's excellent narration. This was my first time listening to Justine Eyre and I was just blown away by how beautifully she did her job. Not only was her reading clear and paced just right, she seemed to really enjoy performing the roles of the various characters. After just finishing another audio book where the narrator seemed to want to be anywhere but reading, this was a very welcome change. What a delight! I'd be more than happy to sit and listen to the entire book again immediately.
Thoroughly recommended and I'll be seeking out more books by both the author and the narrator.
A lot of fun, well-written and performed flawlessly. The narrator was terrific. I highly recommend!
It's exciting, quick paced, and takes place OUTSIDE of England.
The romance remained unpredictable.
I enjoyed all her different voices for the characters.
An exciting historical romance that takes place outside of England. Glad I used a credit to get it. I will look for others by this author.
It had strong main characters and interesting secondary characters. It was adventurous and a bit quirky. It had an authentic feel to it.
A bit like the Amelia Peabody (Elizabeth Peters) series with a bit of Stephanie Laurnes thrown in.
This is the first time I have heard Justine and I think she suited the story well.
Yes, but I didn't want it to end.
This was my first audiobook purchase and I was a bit unsure after reading the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it all. This is a book I will keep as a favorite and listen to again.
I will definitely read the next Connie Brockway book.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
The book was charming. The settings delightful. I could see the wadi, feel that I was there. It was like a classic romance from the twenties. Well, with a little steamier sex. What it lacked in realism it made up in sheer entertainment. I enjoyed the appeal of the characters. I have already recommended this book to a friend. I did that before I had finished listening to it. I feel that I have found a new author to enjoy.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
I loved this book. It has all the elects to make a successful audiobook. The story was magical! Set in Egypt gave the whole story an aura of magic that really caprures you. The story has the right balance between romance and suspense. The characters were really really captivating, the hero is one of the best Hero characters ever created in historical romance. Sexy yet funny, tough yet humble. Loved him!
And finally the narration. Justine Eyre was MAGNIFICENT ! She was really really good ! She has a rich sensuous voice to begin with. But her performance keeps getting better and better . She brought the story to life as if you are watching a movie with your eyes closed :)
Excellent book I highly recommend it :)
Audio Addict! Usually listening to History these days. Love Will Durant most of all authors!
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.
Gave up halfway through. The heroine is annoying, and so is the actor narrating. She has spoilt many a book for me before. However, in this case I must say I have read much better from this author.
