In the hands of O'Banyon, ancient
history comes alive in this fourth
book set in Egypt during the rule of
the powerful Roman Caesars. The arid desert sands and treacherous streets of Alexandria form a perfect backdrop for the steamy love affair of Sabina and Julian and their dangerous mission to bring peace and stability to their homeland. Although this book can be read as a stand-alone novel, it's helpful to read the four books in order to better understand the relationships of the characters.
Julian is the crown prince of the legendary Badari tribe. Sabina is the daughter of a goldsmith, living in her traitorous stepmother's home. They have been friends for years, but Sabina wants more than friendship from him. When she risks her life to provide information that will save his family, Julian must rescue her from certain death. He quickly realizes that his young friend has turned into a beautiful woman -- one he can't live without. (LEISURE, Jan., 336 pp., $7.99)
