A nice Regency romance with two likeable characters in the H/h. The fact that the two of them were totally immersed in the history of ancient Egypt - a hot nerd and a hot nerdette - made the story sweet and sexy.
While there was some intrigue in Gabriel and Rebecca's story, I was rather lost in the reveal about Gabriel's 'basement', and why he was so connected to it. He just seemed a bit TOO detached from society, when he really didn't have anything catastrophic in his life to make him withdraw. If anything, Rebecca's life and past history would lead more to becoming a hermit; even though she was alone and felt lonely most of the time, her personality was a lot more open and friendly than Gabriel's.
Still - I liked this book. I was wavering between 3.5 and 4, so a weak 4.
