I’m very pleased to announce my first full length novel release.
A paranormal romance, Romance Under Wraps.
Set in the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Dene has come alive to try and break the curse. For the first time in over four-thousand years, he finds someone that opens his heart. But will it be enough to free him from the curse?
They come alive once a century.
An advisor, friend, and lover cursed because of his evil pharaoh. Deprived from entering the afterlife because of an indiscretion and ties to his pharaoh and his queen, Dene is tasked by the gods to help them all move on to the afterlife. It’s his curse. Teach his pharaoh to pass the judgments in the book of the dead and pass the weighing of the heart or find the reincarnated queen and have her fall in love with him or his pharaoh to gain his freedom.
Dene tries to teach the pharaoh, but he’s more interested in tricking the gods than learning his lessons. Fearing failure, Dene pins all his hopes on winning the love of his lost queen. But someone is trying to scare her away by falsifying a ‘mummy’s curse.’ With three souls in jeopardy, Dene must solve the mystery and protect her life before his time in this century runs out.
Here’s a sneak peek inside:
Dene walked outside and stared out into the city. No sand, no grass, no trees—just concrete. Buildings taller than the pyramids, stacked too close to each other. Streets filled with cars going nowhere. The people flowed like the Nile, continually moving, swirling around obstacles in their path. He wrinkled his nose at the smell of coffee mixed with gas, cigarettes and cigars, combined with bread, sulfur, and cinnamon. He missed the smell of home, and the peace of his simpler life.
He left early, allowing himself time to walk. Dene clutched the coin in his pocket. He hated the big cities. After a deep breath, he merged into the pedestrian flow and made his way to the museum.
I never thought that my first full length novel would be a romance. Ever in my wildest dreams. It was a challenge for me. This book is part of a paranormal anthology to be released later this year, but I couldn’t wait to share it with you.
Finishing this book was bitter sweet. While thrilled to complete my first novel, actually miss my characters. They have become a part of my life for months. Between the research, the writing, the edits, and yes, there were many edits, my knowledge regarding ancient Egypt has grown.
To all of you out there that think you can’t do it, I am proof that you can.
