First star - The hero has a healthy ego. He's not brooding, wounded, possessive or insecure. Instead, he is lusty (read this as constantly horny as hell) brave, has a keen sense of compassion and honesty, a wonderful sense of humor and the only fear he shows is for others. His respect, admiration and attraction for the heroine was a pleasure to read, and a wonderful twist. (Subtract this star if you need an alpha male who can only find his salvation through the love of a good woman).
Second star - The heroine is intelligent, steadfast, and vulnerable. Like most young women of her era, she was taught that normal sexual desires were wrong, intelligence in females was unnatural, and passion toward virtually anything considered a masculine endeavor was unattractive. Despite her background, she grows with the challenges she faces, overcomes her vulnerability, and she becomes who she was meant to be. (Subtract this star if you want a heroine who seems to be out of character for her generation, or turns into a blithering idiot once she falls in love)
Third star - Storyline. Yup, this novel has an actual plot, a beginning, a middle and an end. All the threads are neatly woven, you are not left hanging with a need to read the next installment. While other stories are available to read within the family of the hero (Lord Perfect, Miss Wonderful), this book is a stand-a-lone. (Subtract this star if you enjoy waiting months or years to find out how a story ends)
Fourth star - The romance is wonderful. The sex is as it should be. Fun, sensual, enthralling and it does not dominate the story. It is never unsettling, it never feels wrong.Read more ›
Rupert, another Carsington brother, is a delightful scoundrel. Nothing upsets him and he faces life with a lighthearted smile. He's able to make her laugh and feel good about herself, and rather than be intimidated by her brain as her husband was, he is fascinated to watch her formidable scholar's brain in action. He's perfect for Daphne.
He's been assigned to the embassy in Cairo. He drives them crazy, so they assign him to help Daphne find her brother, who's been kidnapped. When he says something stupid and discovers that his blunders distract her from worrying about her brother, he continues so that her first impression of him is a sweet natured idiot. Of course she learns otherwise as they go after her brother and a stolen papyrus.
The story takes place in Egypt, a refreshing change from England. It is rich in the history of excavations of the pyramids and attempts to decipher heiroglyphics.
The hero, Rupert Carsington ("Mr. Impossible" himself!), is the Earl of Hargate's fourth son, a reckless hellion who has been sent to Egypt by his father in an attempt to keep him out of trouble. But trouble follows Rupert wherever he goes, not in part because he *thrives* on it! When the attractive and scholarly widow, Daphne Pembroke needs assistance in locating her kidnapped brother, Rupert is the best that the unhelpful British consul general has to offer. Daphne is a linguistic genius, obsessed with deciphering hieroglyphs. Due to prejudice against her gender in the scholarly world, she and her brother, Miles, have long pretended that *he* is the language expert in the family. Since Miles is kidnapped soon giving Daphne a valuable papyrus that reportedly describes the location of a royal tomb, Daphne fears that the villains may be trying to use Miles's purported language skills to locate the pharaoh's treasure.
Rupert and Daphne provide the perfect yin and yang to the story. He is all tall, dark and handsome strength and action and she is the practical brains of the operation. Together they set off up the Nile in pursuit of Miles and the kidnappers. The plot has *lots* of action--with murder attempts, sandstorms, and rival groups of ruthless villains.Read more ›
