    more from this reviewer

    The book came highly recommended from established romance authors, but . . .

    Ginesse Braxton, the eldest (only) daughter of a very large, extremely talented archeological family, is often in disgrace for her impulsive behavior. Indeed, if anything wrong can happen, it does around her. She’s just finishing doctoral work at Oxford (rare for a woman) under the tutorship of Lord Tynesborough when she spots something in the archives that leads her to believe that she’s discovered the lost city of Zerzura. She hops a ship bound for Egypt and becomes a kind of companion to an ill passenger, Mildred Whimpelhall, who is also heading there to marry her fiancé, a stuffy colonel. Ms. W. decides to leave the ship and continue by train, and when Ginesse discovers that the colonel is stationed a short way from the lost city she uses the opportunity to dye her hair red and become Mildred W. The colonel has arranged for her to be met at the station by an American guide, Jim Owen, and travel with him until a posse of handpicked men joins them to keep “Ms. W.” safe along the way. Uh, oh, it’s lust at first sight between “Mildred” and “Jim”. Jim has a past and has done about anything to earn money so he’s just on this side – or maybe not – of the law. Seeing to the fiancée’s safe journey is a way to repay a debt to the colonel. He’s got a number of enemies just itching to get their hands on him (a LeBoeuf character, a collector of antiquities), etc. So it’s a journey full of challenges from the heat, the wind and sand, low water, thieving desert bands, but most of all from the tantalizing pull between them. Ginesse is a romantic; Jim is plain speaking, usually in a distinctly unromantic way. But he has a knack for saving her and she trusts him to do so. The story bubbles along and light is thrown on Jim’s hidden past. They’re meant for each other, but it takes a while to get there. Will I attempt another Brockway? Don't rightly know.
