Joy Debinham, daughter of an English missionary, hides a secret heartache while working with Egypt’s poverty stricken. As she attempts to save the children from easily curable diseases, she has another interest—keeping Egypt’s treasures in the country. But the arrival of Quinn ignites her banked passion and becomes the obsession that might put her life in danger.
Quinn Handry, an enterprising American from humble roots, has come to Egypt for one reason—the money. He’s done many things for a buck, but brokering stolen antiquities is the most lucrative. In order to reclaim what he lost years ago, he’s always on the hunt for treasures until the day he meets Joy and everything dims compared to the desire she invokes in him.
During perfumed Egyptian nights, the heat between them flares while acquaintances conspire to destroy them. Danger doesn’t stay confined to tombs and pushes them to finally realize what matters most—if they can live long enough to claim it.
