Stage and voiceover actress Piper Goodeve’s performance of Midnight Eyes will place listeners in romantic Egypt, where Cairo’s moonlight inspires a love affair between an American travel agent and a seductive Egyptian. Goodeve’s voice always captures the sultry tension between these two lovers, whether she’s intoning the conflicted words of an ambitious woman, the serene and sexy accent of her desert "prince", or merely describing one of the audiobook’s many loaded gazes. Deborah Camp has written more than 40 romance novels, and her recipe for a successful narrative is simple but irresistible: pair a "strong-willed woman" with a "dangerously roguish man" and then faithfully chronicle the consequences.
Egypt - an exotic land of shifting sands and ancient empires. But to beautiful, independent Noble Sherrow, Egypt also means a new territory to conquer for her travel agency. With the help of the darkly handsome, enigmatic Director of Tourism Talat Fazzim, she feels guaranteed to succeed. Yet when his magnetic charms overpower her, she finds no guarantee in his caresses.
Talat is wary of American career women, and Noble has her own prejudices about Egyptian men. Can their passion break through the bounds of their cultures?
