Maggie Owen is a beautiful, spirited Egyptologist...but lonely. While staying in Egypt on a grant from the college, she searches for an undiscovered necropolis she’s certain lies below the sands beyond the pyramids of Giza. Even this discovery doesn’t give her the happiness she had hoped it would. There has always been and is something missing. Love.
Then, her workmen uncover Ramose Nakh-Min’s ancient tomb, and an amulet from his sarcophagus hurls her back to BC 1340 where she falls hopelessly in love with the man she was destined to be with, noble Ramose, who faithfully serves the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaton and his beautiful queen Nefertiti.
She’s fallen into perilous times with civil war threatening Egypt. She’s been mistaken for one of Ramose’s runaway slaves and with her blond hair, jinn-green eyes, and fair skin, she doesn’t fit in. Some say she’s magical and evil. Ramose’s favorite, devious Makere, attempts to have her killed.
The people, angry at the pharaoh Akhenaton for setting his queen Nefertiti aside and forcing them to worship his god, Aton (instead of their many Egyptian gods), are rising up against him.
Maggie’s caught in the middle of it in a dangerous land and time she doesn’t belong in. In the end, desperately in love with Ramose, will she find a way to stay alive and with him in ancient Egypt - and make a difference in his world and history? Because, Maggie has finally found love.
