A scarred mercenary…Or the Disappearing Duke of Greybourne?

Rafe has spent years running from his true identity. He’s a lone wolf, living far from aristocratic England and his violent father. Then unconventional Cleopatra Osbourne requests his protection as she crosses the Egyptian desert. In Cleo he discovers a fellow outcast—and a fierce desire! Cleo must return to London, and here lies Rafe’s dilemma—because following his heart means claiming the title he’s avoided for so long!

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts….

This story captures the reader’s attention from the beginning and holds it across the desert and ocean.

Rafe forced out of his home at a young age into a life of danger and loneliness. Scarred emotionally, and physically his world-weary attitude is disturbed by the appearance of Cleo. Cleo needs a protector. Unwittingly embroiled in her father’s crimes, she needs to escape to Cairo. A less than perfect childhood lets Cleo and Rafe break through the barriers the other employs to the vulnerable individual hidden from the world. Amusing dialogue and simmering passion arc between Cleo and Rafe like an electrical storm.

The historical setting is unusual and well researched. The desert journey and ocean crossing allow the couple to get to know each other well, and their love to grow despite the internal conflict and external dangers.

This is a lovely historical romance with relatable characters and an absorbing historical background.

She lives with her husband, two children, and one very fluffy dog and they are all very understanding about her taking over the kitchen table so she can look out over the garden as she writes and dreams up her Happy Ever Afters.
