Review: "Egyptian Heart" by Kathryn Meyer Griffith was a different type of romantic read...through time travel all mixed up in the past (1340 BC) Egyptian life, culture and then brought in a romance of a woman from the twenty-first century. I really liked the way this wonderful author brings us another one of her good novels... that will captivate our attention for the reader to want more. The storyline was simply well written with lots of detail. This was definitely a page turner for me. Maggie Owens was a Egyptologist who was given a grant for three months to work in Egypt (Great Pyramids) to explore the areas around Gizah searching for the 'lost tomb.' In Egypt, its life has very harsh, hot and lonely...however, Maggie finds the ancient tomb of Ramose, Nakh-Min...and then finds the secret area that had a 'magic amulet.' Maggie had already been given a amulet for protection....everything was fine until the two amulets touched...and then 'Maggie falls and the past comes forth where she meets Ramose...who was the servant of Pharaoh Athenationa and Queen Nefertiti.' How did Maggie get there and will she come back? What was Maggie up against with the people? How does this 21st century woman deal with this situation...now in ancient time ....'of being a woman of lesser value ...and even slaves to the men?' Would Maggie find love in this place with all of the violence, turbulence and danger that was all around her? Being the master storyteller that this author is...... using historical references about the Egyptian pharaohs and the politicis delivering her message in the story to the reader. Now this is the part where I say you will have to pick up this good read to find out....I did and enjoyed the read! If you are in for a strong hero, great heroine and loss of action-pact with some real interesting characters from the time long-past....then I would recommend "Egyptian Heart" as a excellent time travel romance novel for you.

Reviewed by Author Anna del C. Dye. for Readers Favorite What a fun ride I have had reading this time travel romance! It is a great mix between ancient Egyptian life and culture and the romance a woman from our twenty-first century. It is beautifully crafted to please historians and romance lovers of every age. Although it is a romance book, I was very pleased to see that it is a clean, wholesome tale. The story is that of Maggie Owen, whose dream of being an Egyptologist and college professor digging into the sands of Egypt becomes a reality when she is offered a grant to spend three months digging near the Great Pyramids. All goes well until an Egyptian guide gives her an amulet to ward off evil, and then she finds an identical amulet in the tomb of Ranose, a great warrior of Egyptian times. She tentatively puts the two together and in the next moment she is standing in the long dead past¿Egyptian history before Christ. How she gets there and when she will come back are the least of her problems. At this ancient time, women are of a lesser value, even slaves to the men. How does a twenty-first century free woman deal with all those problems? Well, you will have to read this entertaining book and find out, like I did. I am sure that this adventure will easily become one of your favorites. This book teaches how a sweet person (be it a man, a woman or a child) can make a difference in the lives of many. I would recommend this book for readers older than fourteen, especially adults.

Fallen Angels Reviews (Bella) said FIVE ANGELS and RECOMMENDED READ on June 30, 2008! Here's the review: Egyptian Heart All her life, Egyptologist Maggie Owen has wanted to experience Egypt in person. She's never had a chance to do so, until now. Given a grant to explore the deserts near Gizah in search of a lost tomb, Maggie, single and childless, jumps at the chance. She'll miss her family and cat, but she's not about to pass up the chance to see the land she's read about since she was a child. Life is harsh in Egypt. She's hot, lonely and sandy all the time.but wouldn't have it any other way. One day, on her dig, she uncovers the ancient tomb of Ramose Nakh-Min. While prodding the sarcophagus Maggie discovers a secret compartment containing a scarab amulet, very similar to the one she was given by a superstitious local for protection. When the two scarabs touch, Maggie falls-three thousand years into the past where she meets Ramose, a servant of Pharaoh Akhenaton and Queen Nefertiti. The darker locals don't know what to make of Maggie. With long blonde hair and pale green eyes, some consider her a jinn and stay away from her at all costs. Others, jealous of her fair skin and beautiful looks, wish her dead and make attempts on her life. In short order, however, Maggie acclimates to ancient Egyptian life and falls for the handsome and loving Ramose, all the while believing that she shouldn't marry him as she belongs to a different time. It's no secret that Pharaoh Akhenaton is falling out of favor with the people, as he's become monotheistic, demanding that his subjects toss aside their many gods to follow his example. It becomes clear that those attached to the Pharaoh by marriage, blood or association are in danger. Maggie, Ramose and the Queen, out of favor with the Pharaoh, find themselves on the run not only from the Pharaoh whose sanity is quickly slipping but also from Lord Haremhab, a man whose greed for the throne knows no bounds. Will Maggie be able to return to her own time? Will she even want to, now that she's finally found love? Loving all time travel tales and ancient Egyptian history, I eagerly delved into Egyptian Heart. I was not disappointed with what I read. It was clear that much research went into creating this wonderful tale. Lush descriptions of Egyptian palaces and feasts carried me away, and for a brief period of time, like Maggie, I was in another time and place. Ramose is fierce, but incredibly loving toward the woman who stole his heart. Maggie is courageous, treating all, including slaves, with respect and compassion. The tension of the perilous situation with Pharaoh and his people was the perfect element of suspense that kept the story quickly moving up until its satisfying ending. I highly recommend Egyptian Heart and thank Katherine Meyer Griffith for writing such a wonderful story. Reviewed by: Bella
