Desperate to return a priceless treasure to a royal Egyptian tomb in order to save her father's life, a young woman is tempted by a handsome archaeologist who once was her father's protg and is now his bitter enemy. Original.
Years before, a viccount had stolen Jake Mitchell's archeological finds, claiming them as his own and accusing Jake of stealing. The discovery of Queen Tiy (in partnership with Sarah's father) is a chance to redeem his reputation, reclaim his role as a leading British archeologist, and gain the funding he Jake needs to pursue his love of Egypt and of archeology. Admittedly his partner has been suffering from a bit of superstitious nonsense, but no superstition, no thief, nothing, is going to get in Jake's way this time. When Jake discovers that Queen Tiy's remains are missing, presumably stolen by his partner, Lord Whithurst to be returned to Egypt, he sets off in pursuit.
Thrown together on the same ship, Sarah hides her identity and the nature of her cargo from the man she knows will do anything in his power to deny her this one chance to reclaim her father's love. Despite herself, however, she feels a growing appreciation, respect, and desire for this powerful man. Although Jake knows Sarah is hiding secrets, he can't imagine she is hiding the one secret most important to him. When he discovers the truth, Sarah knows that any chance at love will be destroyed. But first, they need to explore Egypt--and to avoid the armies of Napoleon himself.
Author Tammy Hilz writes an emotionally rich adventure story. Both the streets of London and the deserts of Egypt come alive in this exciting story. Sarah and Jake are both damaged characters intent on proving themselves, and Hilz makes their emotional and physical attraction vividly real at the same time as she draws the conflict in strong relief. SHADOW OF THE SUN is the first of an exciting series of historical novels by Tammy Hilz. I'll be looking forward to reading the remaining novels as well.
Jake Mitchell knew of his partner's plans to return the Treasure to Egypt. But he can't let this happen. He knows that this could be the last chance to save hi Career by delivering this treasure to the King. So he sets off to find the person Roger has hired to take the treasure back to Egypt. Never realizing that it is Rogers daughter.
When Jake and Sarah end up on the same Ship heading to Egypt the fun begins, she knows who he is but he never guesses who she is. Will the treasure be returned? Or Will Jake use it to further his Career? Will it truly break a Curse? Will t rue love prevail in the end? All these are good questions that you will ask yourself as you read Shadow of the Sun.
In my Opinion Tammy Hilz as written a wonderful romance novel of adventure and archaeologist set in the late 1700's. This was an excellent read. A book that I just couldn't put down until I was through.
