New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nina Bruhns presents for your reading pleasure, book 1 in her exciting sexy contemporary paranormal romance trilogy, IMMORTAL SHEIKHS.

The three Haliday sisters are not afraid of mummies. Nor of silly ancient Egyptian curses. Historian Gillian, ethnographer Gemma, and archaeologist Josslyn Haliday spent their childhoods sharing their sleeping tent with all manner of mummies, having accompanied their Egyptologist father on his digs ever since the fateful day their mother disappeared into the sands of the Sahara twenty years ago.

Brave women all three, it would never occur to any of them to fear the dead.

But that is all about to change...


Lord Rhys Kilpatrick died in Egypt. In 1885. At least, that's what his family thought. But they were wrong.

As the eldest son of a British earl, Lord Rhys dearly loved his old life of action and indulgence. But he loves his new life even more, as a trusted lieutenant to the five-thousand year old demigod who granted him immortality.

Egyptologists and locals believe the vampire Seth-Aziz is merely an ancient myth. Lord Rhys is one of the initiated few who know better. That Seth rules the nighttime desert from his vast, luxurious tomb-palace deep beneath the shifting sands. As al Fahl, Rhys is now a shapeshifter, able to transform himself at will into a magnificent stallion. His highly enjoyable duty is to supply his dark master with all his heart desires.

When historian Gillian Haliday ventures too close to the carefully hidden palace entry, searching for Rhys's own grave to settle the mystery of his death for his former family, he knows he must intervene. Quickly.

Rhys is instantly obsessed with the bold, golden beauty. This woman, he decides, he will keep for himself. In the vast, burning desert, an unwary person is easily swallowed up, never to be heard of again. Few will notice a missing woman, no matter how pretty.

But Seth has other plans for her. Plans that will crush Rhys and Gillian's blossoming love, and spell her doom. And possibly be the untimely end of Lord Rhys's own earthly existence.  


The Bedouin believe Sheikh Shahin Aswadi to be the harbinger of death, an immortal shapeshifter who rides the wind in the form of a powerful black hawk, serving his vampire master. Shahin doesn't mind. The myth makes his duties as commander of Seth-Aziz's army of immortal followers much easier. No outsider has dared approach his hidden oasis encampment for over a century, too terrified of the ruthless legend of al Shahin.

Until today.


Five thousand years is a long time to live underground, without the sun in your face or the wind in your hair.

Still, for vampire Seth-Aziz, there are ample compensations for living in perpetual darkness--the magical powers of a demigod, the ability to take the form of any creature he wishes, a beautiful underground palace filled with loyal, adoring followers, and of course being immortal. It is an amazing life, even without the sun.

But not today.
