Overview

Determined to prove her worth as a budding archeologist, Ginesse Braxton vows to solve one of the world’s greatest mysteries — to find the location of the lost city of Zerzura. Unfortunately, no man dares take the risk of escorting an unwed young lady across the open desert. But on her way to Egypt, Ginesse engages in a daring deception — she will switch places with Mildred Whimpelhall, who is traveling to meet her fiancé, an officer posted deep in the Sahara.

Years before, cynical adventurer Jim Owen disappeared from his former life to escape the dark secrets of a troubled past. Betrayed by the woman he loved and scorned by proper society, he agrees to carry out a danger-fraught task: escort Mildred Whimpelhall across a lawless desert to her intended. But Jim is about to learn that “Mildred” isn't exactly what she seems…and the dangers they face together are eclipsed only by an even greater peril: falling in love, against all reason, with another guy’s bride.

“Take one enchanting, free-spirited woman and one hard hearted loner, toss in some witty dialogue [and] some heated passion, and you have the perfect recipe for romance — The Other Guy’s Bride.” —Christina Dodd, author of In Bed with the Duke

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Born into a family of notable Egyptologists but determined to achieve success on her own, headstrong Ginesse Braxton evades her family and gains a guide by borrowing a fellow traveler's identity while en route to Cairo and heads into the desert in search of a lost city in the company of a rugged, sexy rogue. But there's deception on both sides, and while Ginny isn't an officer's fiancée, James Owens is hiding secrets that are far more startling. Bandits, scorpions, sandstorms, and scorching heat plague the pair as they struggle with both the desert and their growing attraction in this well-paced tale that follows As You Desire and launches Amazon's Montlake imprint. VERDICT Romancing the Stone meets Elizabeth Peters's Amelia Peabody in this funny, adventurous, and infinitely romantic turn-of-the-century romp that throws social propriety (think Victorian) to the winds. A surefire winner from a stellar author who never fails to deliver. Brockway (The Golden Season) lives in Minnesota. [First released as an EPUB this November for $9.99.—Ed.]
