Ally is a fashion photographer and good at her work,often flying to Paris or different parts of the world to get the best pictures. Her sister is very clever and studies Egyptology and when she is killed suddenly in an accident, Ally is devastated. She goes to her apartment in New York and mourns her much loved sister, but when she fetches a mysterious package from the customs office containing an ancient gold necklace things begin to happen.

Ally flies to England to return the necklace to its rightful owner. Jack is rich and comes from an old and titled family but his family has suffered from a terrible curse. Gradually, as Ally and Jack try to solve the mystery of the necklace themselves, they are drawn into a steamy romance. However, Ally is being drawn back into a time centuries earlier and immeshed in the life of a dark ancient queen.

Will Amnut take over Ally's life and destroy her or will her love for Jack bring her safely back to reality?

This is a skilfully crafted romance-suspence that moves backwards and forwards in time keeping the reader on the edge of their seats. This is a strong hot book. 4.5 red roses. Morna
