A PHARAOH, A SPELL & JADE by AYSEL ARWEN
Fourth Dynasty, Inebu-hedj, Egypt: Sneferu "He of Beauty", the first pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty and one of Egypt's most benevolent rulers, has survived several assassination attempts, but he knows it is only a matter of time before the killer will succeed. Seeking the aid of the gods through his high priest, the pharaoh casts an ancient spell giving him the power to return to a time just before his murder -- if the gods grant his request.
Sneferu is murdered and his high priest is able to secret his body away, which is the only hope for his return. Almost five thousand years later, Jade Morgan, an American Egyptologist is working on a stone altar.
Catapulted back in time, the two must forge an alliance to keep Sneferu from being murdered a second time, but their hearts soon find that time is no barrier to true love. Weaving in and out of the traitors in the harem, as well as those in his court, the two quickly find they are traveling on the same path together.
When the Nubian army is found camped across the Nile from his palace, Sneferu and jade must risk all and almost lose all to keep Egypt safe. Despite being kidnapped, captured, tortured and traded to their enemies, Jade and Sneferu overcome danger, deceit and death to find their together place in time.
