Overview

Heiress to the fortune of a world-renowned archeologist, Miss Jaden Poole accidentally defies time and space and stumbles upon the man of her dreams, but must conceal information that could unravel his world.

About to graduate from the University of Chicago with a degree in ancient history, flapper Jaden Poole has come to embrace the racy ‘new breed’ lifestyle. Heiress to the fortune of a prominent archeologist, the thought of following in her father’s footsteps bores her to tears—until she’s given the opportunity to decipher a room full of pre-dynastic Egyptian hieroglyphs. Amid the mystical walls, and with at least a fifth of bathtub gin in her belly, she missteps and suddenly finds herself sitting in the sand outside the dig site in the cool of the night.

Omari—Commander—Elydian Amun’s priority is to control and protect the oasis that supports the city of Anuk-dye, and to keep peace among the people of his camp—even if it means doing the job of a lazy son of a politician and soothing an obstinate, jealous lambish (camp whore). But when a curvy, daring young woman who speaks using strange phrases wanders into his camp, he can think of nothing other than making her his.

Jaden knows that they have no place in each other’s lives—and if she goes all the way with Ely, it will leave a scar on her soul that will last an eternity. After resisting his many passionate demands and experiencing his surprisingly solicitous nature, she decides to give him what he seeks. All too soon it is discovered that not only is Jaden miles from home, but that, through a debacle that is her fault, she may not be able to return.

    I received this book from Totally Bound Book Publishing in return for a fair and honest review.

    Jaden is a wealthy, spoiled, daughter of a well known gentleman who headed up archaeological digs. He was quite successful in his work and it provided a nice allowance for Jaden to use as she pleased. She preferred to spend as much of her time dancing at the rubs, drinking outlawed alcohol, and spending as much with the boys as she could get away with. Suddenly her pops’ dream was taking too much money from her fortune left to her upon the death of her father. This resulted in an unwanted trip to North Africa, specifically Egypt. Will this excursion change Jaden’s mindset about the digs her father so passionately enjoyed and the history of the people who lived those lives that were now being uncovered? Would there be anyone she encounters that could make Jaden want to change the way she lives her life? Would Jaden ever be able to give her heart away again?

    Jaden’s lifestyle of drinking a little too much might have gotten the better of her. Where had she gone? Where was the dig? Where had the camp gone? Who was this Omari Elydian Amun? Her bossy and feisty personality isn’t getting her back to her camp and dig that she was so eager to shut down. How would she make it back to camp? Could she get back to Dr. Harper to relay vital information or was it just too late?

    Omari Elydian Amun was an incredibly large, well built man, but so was everyone in his camp. The area that they lived was described in such great detail it made me feel that I could walk out my door and be there. The Oasis of Eden was probably the best described place and made me want to pack up my things and make a journey there and it was probably my favorite part of the book. This was Elydian’s home, what a home to have! Elydian is a man of honor and a man of power. I loved the character he played out to be and how his soft side unfolded.

    I enjoyed reading this book but felt it was a particular slow book for a good portion of the first half of the book. There were parts I really wanted to love and wanted it to grab me and keep me turning the page, but that didn’t really happen until the second half. The second half had much more emotion, action, and the detail was written a little better. Also the words flowed easier during this time.

    Jaden and Elydian are destined to meet and interact but will Jayden be strong enough to allow herself to give up control? Can she get over her spoiled girl ways and work to keep a society safe and running? Pick up a copy of Oasis of Eden and find out.
