5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Victorian Period Egyptian Adventure, 7 Aug 2006

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Panther & the Pyramid (Leisure Historical Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
Author Bonnie Vanak returns to the land of Egypt in an exciting adventure that features Graham Tristan. Graham is an English noble who as a young boy, saw his parents slaughtered before his very eyes, captured by a cruel sheik, tortured and defiled he was later rescued and lived for a time with members of the elite Khamsin Egyptian Warriors of the Wind. Eventually discovered to be the heir to a dukedom he returned to England to assume his title. Now Graham is a man, who fears and is feared but who lives with nightmares. Haunted by nightmares of a woman with green eyes and red hair who he feels will threaten to expose all he holds dear or possibly destroy him.

Lady Jillian had been browbeaten; forced by an uncaring father to obey without question, her desires not considered; to be sold to the highest bidder for political gain. Rebellion would be the first step in escaping from the cruel oppressive hand of her father, and Jillian would choose to sell that which her father thought to barter away for his own gain. Never did she think that the man who took her virginity would also nourish a heart that she would later willingly give him as they faced danger upon danger in search of a priceless treasure traveling across the Egyptian desert.

This was an exciting sensual adventure of two enormously wounded people who for reasons of their own were destined to meet, to test, and to heal one another. With a very accomplished pen the author opens up and scrutinizes their very souls and psyche with vivid imagery. One caution issued here is that the instances of the torture that while not graphic in content may be disturbing. The well-fleshed out characters were complex with a myriad of emotions lying beneath the surface and were tweaked to perfection. Kudos must be given the author who also gives one of the most emotionally selfless examples of a man proving his love to protect the woman he loved that I have ever seen. Bravo, for this extremely satisfying and sensual read I highly recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 10 Sep 2008
This review is from: The Panther & the Pyramid (Leisure Historical Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
Never heard of this author before but shall certainly be reading more of her books. The most enjoyable read I have had in a long time. The sex scences are steamy and the story is just in some places heart rendering. Loved it.
