Greece & Egypt 47 B.C.

Danae’s life is being turned upside down with the death of her father. The one thing she knows more than anything else is how to tame wild beasts. Now with all the turmoil in Egypt right now things are getting more difficult and she is not sure exactly who she can and should trust. Trusting the wrong person could very well mean her life. She isn’t sure what to believe about Ramtat. All she knows for sure is that the attraction she feels for the dangerous lord just might be her downfall if she is not careful.

Ramtat is having to walk a very fine line right now with all the different fractions that is trying to take over the power of Egypt. The last thing he needs is to be attracted to a mysterious woman that could be anything from a slave girl to a princess. The emerald-eyed cobra charm that she wears is the only thing that is a clue to who she truly is. The only thing Ramtat is sure of is that no matter what the truth is about Danae he is determined to make her his. First he is going to have to get her out of the intrigue that she has found herself in.

From the battlefields of Rome to the royal court of Egypt Ramtat has finally found his match in Danae and if he isn’t careful he might just end up in a plot that will have them both forfeiting their lives. Danae has her secrets that Ramtat is determined to find out about and nothing will stop him from doing what he must to keep them both alive.

This is a wonderful story which brings to life the times of Cleopatra and Julius Caesar. It draws the reader into the power struggle that was going on at the time and even knowing what the outcome is it still will keep the reader engrossed in the story and time that helped shape the world as we know it today. This is great story with wonderful characters that keep the pace moving very well. This one brings a period of time of great ambitions and turmoil to vivid life for the reader.

I give this one 4 red roses
