"Enjoyable paranormal historical romance"
In 1892, American Elizabeth Summers accompanies her uncle
on his archaeological dig in Egypt to find a special
artifact, the Almha. Though Elizabeth wants to be at the
excavation site, as a woman she is only capable of
cataloguing the findings.
As his ancestors have done, Sheik Jabari and his desert
warriors pledged to keep the Almha safe from infidels.
They monitor the progress of the outsiders. Jabari is
shocked to see a beautiful, blond woman among the diggers
and he goes undercover pretending to be a worker. When
Elizabeth realizes where the artifact is hidden, Jabari
abducts her so that his charge remains hidden. Stunningly,
Elizabeth and Jabari are attracted to one another. When he
sees a dove shaped birthmark on her, he believes that she
is the reincarnation of Queen Kiya, whom the ancient
prophecy claims that one day she and the chief of her
guards will return as lovers.
Fans of paranormal historical romance will want to read THE
FALCON AND THE DOVE, a fast-paced tale that hooks the
audience from the moment Jabari sees Elizabeth among the
excavators. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with
action yet has time to develop a love subplot between the
lead characters. Though the reincarnation angle adds
suspense and an otherworldly feel to the novel, it also
detours around a strong bi-cultural romance that makes for
a riveting novel that glues the audience to their seat
until the final page is read.
