Kayan, the prince from Bactria,
Until Kayan arrives to rescue her, Mayet endures captivity, Ptolemy's attentions and the murderous schemes of his two wives. She's brave but must know who to trust before deciding whether it's her fate to be wife to Kayan or Ptolemy.
The opening might seem slow for any reader who hasn't braved reading about this era before. Intense political intrigue, an element of the paranormal and a major culture clash are as central to French's rich presentation as her love story is. There are secret heirs, new war technology, the personal sacrifices only love makes possible and plenty of action. SPICY (Aug., 351 pp., $6.99)
