Can a land of exotic enchantment melt the enmity between Alex and Dan before it’s too late?Days before starting a history-making excavation in a remote sector of the Valley of the Kings, Dr. Alexandria Randall’s father, a fellow Egyptologist, goes missing. Alex will stop at nothing to find her father—a gargantuan task in an ancient land where she doesn’t make the rules—even if she’s also a target. Alex must swallow her pride and ask for protection from an arrogant journalist named Dan. To find her father, Alex must play Dan’s wife—a ruse that both find insufferable. But with her father’s life hanging in the balance, Alex is determined to make their mock marriage work.

Poor story writing
Arabian Nights... not
A better story, and a better narrator.
The so called professional and educated modern-day heroine "bit her lip" and her nails constantly. She fainted at the prospect of "big strong men" and mummies. She behaved like a child who has no self control, throwing fits almost every time she was upset. Perversely she was frightened of what the author portrayed as "strong masculine men". I am very familiar with the Middle East, so I will also say this: Ms. Graham, please do better research about the food, language and culture of a locale and characters. Stereotypes are boring. Also the narrator clearly had no idea how to pronounce any of the "Arabic" words used in the book (most were used incorrectly). Her vocal tone is also annoyingly pretentious.
