Desire hot enough to reach through the ages and melt the sands of time.

Jasmine Devi is eager to start digging up artifacts on a field expedition to Giza. But finding a hidden chamber and an ancient bracelet could change this Egyptologist’s life forever.

King Okpara is called through time to stop what he believes is someone stealing his former queen’s sacred jewel. When he finds the bracelet firmly attached to the wrist of a woman of impeccable beauty, his plans change. Believing Jasmine is destined to be his new queen, Okpara needs to use all of his skill to convince her to step back in time with him.

In the face of Okpara’s campaign to gain her trust and cater to her innermost desires, how can Jasmine refuse?

Warning: Explicit sex, hot Egyptian men, and a unique body chamber.

Uncovering Egypt explores with sensual results the wish of going back in time when men were men and kings knew how to get what they wanted.

Jasmine is a workaholic who lives for her job. I loved the reference to The Mummy as it is one of my favorite movies too. This story captures the fun, the adventure and the romance but delivers a lot more heat. Jasmine is not a shy miss, nor is she easy. She says what she needs to say and means it. Yet she’s not about to let a chance of ultimate happiness pass her by – if it’s real. Can a dream become a reality and lose nothing of its charm?

Okpara has loads of charm. He’s always gotten his way before so meeting Jasmine sure is a switch.

I think his speech is too modern but since this is a fantasy, I didn’t get all bent out of shape about it. I liked not having to deal with and get bogged down by that kind of detail. The hero has all the sexy qualities that make women sit up and take notice. He’s well described and his internal dialogue is a good indication that Jasmine doesn’t stand a chance against him.

The conflict comes from this guy, Mason. I really enjoyed Ms. Cory’s description of him. He seemed so innocuous. And in fact, I thought the story was going to go in a totally different direction than it did. I liked what happened and how the story progressed. The part when the action kicked up a notch had me flipping those pages in a flurry. The tension and suspense, as short as it was, was tight, riveting and fun to read.

The happily ever after is depicted as saucy, energetic and holds much promise. By that I mean I hope we can go back and visit someday and see if there are any new developments in their relationship. The chemistry was so delightful, I am not ready to see the end of Jasmine and Okpara. Uncovering Egypt is a story that delivers a very hot fantasy and I’m glad I read it.
