More About the Author

As an AF brat I lived in France and Newfoundland, both of which I loved, and at least half of the fifty states. As an AF officer, I served tours in Taiwan, Vietnam, the Pentagon, and the rest of the fifty states!

Now I'm having a blast putting all those adventures into my books.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've always had a fascination with ancient Egypt, though I've been unable to find many historical romances set in that time period. I was pleasantly surprised to come across _Lady Of The Upper Kingdom_.

Lady Farahapsut, a priestess of Bast, is as spirited and regal as her goddess. Pledged since birth to sing praises to Bast and care for Bast's earth form -- a beautiful caracal cat -- Farahapsut is devoted to her faith above all else.

Captain Philip Tauron is a Macedonian soldier traveling with Alexander, the conqueror of Egypt. Arrogant to a fault, he believes in taking what he wants, regardless of the consequences.

Thrown together in a farce of a marriage to unite their two cultures, these two powerful and determined people do their best to honor their vows. Philip must learn to accept a high-spirited, opinionated Egyptian woman, while Farah must learn to trust and respect one of the men who've come to claim her beloved country. Slowly, a mutual affection forms between them, but when faced with the wrath of the Lord of Deneba, who had once been the betrothed of Farahapsut, it takes love to help them overcome tragedy.

Ms. Lovelace has a true talent for making the time period come alive. The reader is left with the feeling of walking the streets of Egypt on the cusp of the founding of Alexandria. You can almost smell the lotus flowers and hear the rush of the Nile in each page you turn.

Though this was my first book by Ms. Lovelace, I will certainly look up more of her work. If you're fascinated by the ancient Egyptian culture and looking for a book full of romance and passion, look no further than _Lady Of The Upper Kingdom_.
