Publisher's Summary

From ancient Egypt to present-day New Orleans, a woman of exceptional strength is called to protect against an unspeakable evil...and to experience an unforgettable seduction. Khepri still isn’t used to being The God’s Wife. The daughter of a common farmer, she’s more comfortable being friends with servants than employing a whole team of them. Lately she’s had doubts about the role she’s been thrust into. She’s had yearnings for another sort of life, one where she’s loved intimately, rather than only adored from afar. When a powerful man lures her away from her temple, she’s thrilled at the chance for an adventure. Her adventure quickly becomes a nightmare when the handsome vizier mummifies her alive, until she awakens in a distant future. Alone and needing a guide in this strange and garish new world, she turns to the troubled man who set her free...
When New Orleans police detective Justin Henry Boucher is called to the Garden Museum to investigate stolen Egyptian artifacts, it’s not exactly the adrenaline rush he used to get working a homicide. But with a reprimand on his record and a sorrow he can’t shake, he will take what he can get - as long as he can keep his badge. What he doesn’t count on is having to keep his cool when he finds one of the priceless artifacts - a golden-skinned goddess wrapped in fabric like a mummy, left to die and needing his help. She’s a mystery he’s determined to unravel. She might also be the cure for his lonely heart.

Great Story, Unparalleled Narration

For the first time ever, I bought a book based on who the narrators were rather than the book's synopsis or author. I hadn't heard of Delilah Devlin before, and while I love paranormal romance, I'm not so big on the Egyptian theme. Still, it was a Phil and Natalie production, and I honestly think this fantastic narration team could make a grocery list sound interesting, so I took a chance and bought the book.

Happily, I was not disappointed. I expected the fantastic narration, but I was very pleased with this story as well. Khepri is a woman from ancient Egypt, a humble girl raised to the exalted position of The God's Wife. A powerful priestess, she is essentially mummified while alive so that she could awake in present day New Orleans and defeat a powerful evil.

Justin is a seasoned cop. After losing his best friend and partner, he loses his temper with a superior. He's been kicked out of the homicide division and reassigned to investigate thefts. He and his new partner pick up a case investigating the theft of Egyptian artifacts at a local museum.

In the process of the investigation, Justin breaks all the rules when he rescues the beautiful, mysterious Khepri and spirits her away to his home. Is she the woman of his dreams? Or is she a delusional lunatic who believes she's the wife of a God, destined to save the world from a supernatural evil? The more Justin sees of Khepri, the more he likes her, as things develop, he slowly begins to understand that she's exactly who she claims to be.

I was pleased with the character development, the writing style and very happy with the layout of the plot. It certainly kept me tuned in, eager to hear what would happen next.

There are liberal and graphic sexual situations. This book is adult erotic fiction done well, but would not be appropriate for a younger audience.

Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross delivered a stunning performance. Separately, they are both wonderful narrators, but together, they bring life to a story. Thank you Audible! Well done!

I normally have a different line of romance taste. I took a chance on this book because of the narrators and it so paid off. Great Read by both narrators. I would choose another by them anytime.
