Overview

When Christian arrives in Egypt as the man Friday to an eccentric American, he's hoping to get his chance to make history and establish his name in archaeology. What he doesn't count on is meeting brash hired gun, Eric Lawless, and falling into an uneasy partnership. He thinks Eric is a boor. Eric thinks he's a prude. Sparks fly, leading to a night of passion that Christian has no intention of repeating. Too bad he can't resist Eric's rough charm.

He's not ready for what their digging exposes either. The spirits of ancient Egypt are stirring, raised by very modern men, leading him, and Eric, into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. One where old ghosts and older gods send them on a dance of deception and terror deep in the tombs of the Valley of the Kings.

Together, they must face their greatest fears, and their feelings for each other. Ancient artifacts, deadly snakes, and terrifying monsters stand in the way of what may be the greatest archaeological find any man has ever seen. Can they unearth the secrets of the tomb of the god king before they lose everything they hold dear?

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

My only thought, as I watched two of my employer's guards become fodder for an incredibly large creature with perhaps fifty tentacles, was that once I might have found such a sight odd. Now, however, the sound of men screaming and of flesh and bone rending seemed commonplace.

I should have, perhaps, begun at the beginning. The season of 1924 was unlike any I had ever attended. Thanks to the events of the previous year, the ones involving Carter and Carnarvon, Cairo proved even more difficult to navigate than usual. The Mena House seemed a veritable oasis of calm, and luckily for me, my employer had an invitation to stay there. Indeed, Mr. Alexander Royale, lately of New York, seemed to have an in to all of the correct places.

The saffragi lugged Mr. Royale's trunks up to his suite while I played valet. I opened one case and pulled out my employer's evening wear, for supper was to be a formal affair. Sighing at the wrinkles, I shook my head and began the arduous task of smoothing them out.

I had found, not long after joining Mr. Royale's employ, that his idea of the duties assigned to a dig organizer and my ideas were not, in fact, the same. His ideas constituted duties as social secretary, interpreter, haggler, and indeed, dresser. Only the astonishing salary of X pounds per diem kept me from throwing the job back at Mr. Royale's protruding proboscis. That, and the opportunity to see Egypt again, which I had not done in three years.

"Be sure to shine my shoes, Christian," Royale said, appearing in the doorway. "Really, the dust here is insidious."

"Yes," I replied, unable to keep the sigh from my voice. "We're in thedesert."
