Morgan Sherburn is a cop from Los Angeles who, while cleaning out her family's English manor house after the death of her great-grandfather, stumbles across her great-grandmother's journal from her trip to Egypt back in the 1920's.
Morgan has been told that her great-grandmother died in Egypt of a fever but she comes to discover in the pages of the journal that her great-grandmother may have been murdered because of a mysterious papyrus, called the "Lady of Heaven" papyrus, that is still in the family's possession.
Enlisting the help of Dr. Fox Henredon, a prestigious British Egyptologist, to assist in deciphering the papyrus seems like a mistake at first. Dr. Henredon is handsome, brilliant and skeptical, and when he and Morgan come together, the sparks fly. But when the dust settles and a strong attraction develops, Morgan is determined to go to Egypt to track the clues of the "Lady of Heaven" papyrus, which Fox has discovered to be an ancient document alluding to the tomb of the goddess Isis.
As Fox and Morgan dig deeper and deeper into the clues of the mysterious papyrus, old legends become truth, friends turn out to be enemies, and in the middle of it, Morgan discovers the truth about her great-grandmother that she could have never imagined. Along with the truth about her great-grandmother come discoveries and danger on a catastrophic scale.
Clever twists and ancient mysteries abound in this deeply romantic novel set in the timeless sands of Egypt where ancient legends and modern realities collide.

A wild adventure! I am a huge fan of Kathryn Le Veque’s novels! I wanted to read this contemporary LADY OF HEAVEN which I found filled with romance and mystery! This genre is different from her medieval stories, but her style of writing are always pleasant to read. I liked her two characters Dr. Fox Henredon, a British Egyptologist and museum curator, and Morgan Sherburn, a cop from Los Angeles. But I preferred this giant of a man Fox! The story starts as Morgan and Fox meet, but their rencontre is a disaster! She had wanted to share with him, some notes from her great-grandmother's journal and show a very rare papyrus. She needed Fox’s help to decode some inscriptions on these artifacts. After meeting her, Fox felt intrigued by Morgan, and his curiosity peeked. So, he decides to give it a try and team up! But being so close together, made sparks flare and love will be in the air for them. They will fly to Cairo, Egypt, to find clues that would reveal what really happened to great-grandmother France. It’s a beautiful love story and wild adventure filled with romance, intrigue and mysteries. Again, Ms. Le Veque didn’t disappoint me with her contemporaries. It’s still her style of writing but in a different genre.
