Publisher's Summary

Get ready for action-packed romance with archaeologist Dr. Kathlyn Trent and her husband, Egyptologist Marcus Burton. In the first book of the series, meet Dr. Kathlyn Trent. A cross between Indiana Jones and The Crocodile Hunter, Dr. Trent has made a name for herself as a Media Archaeologist. Beautiful, intelligent and educated, she is one of the most famous faces in the world. Her television specials bring millions of viewers as she tackles subjects that most credible archaeologists won't touch. But beneath the flash and hype, she has a true gift. A "sixth sense", this gift has helped her locate mystical and wonderful things all over the world. Whether or not people believe in her gift, her results speak for themselves.
Because of her ability to find the unfindable, Dr. Trent is called in to assist the floundering dig of one of the world's top Egyptologists, Dr. Marcus Burton. Dr. Burton has a highly publicized dig in the Valley of the Kings, and Kathlyn is met with animosity the moment she sets foot on his dig. Tall, dark, and ruggedly gorgeous, he has no desire to attract the attention she brings. But the excitement they come to share as they explore long-lost pharaoh's tomb destroys the animosity in favor of an emotional bond that cannot be broken. Elements of intrigue endanger their lives and create chaos amidst their blooming romance, and the situation soon explodes in a running gun battle amongst the ruins of ancient Egyptian temples. It takes all of Kathlyn and Marcus' strength to keep each other alive.

"Oh Mighty Isis!!"

What did you love best about Valley of the Shadow?

I loved this story!! A contemporary love story interwoven with the intrigue of ancient Egyptian lore and history- it is a perfect combination!

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Kathlyn because she is an intelligent, capable woman who is driven to succeed, but not to the point she will forgo love when she comes upon it. I also loved Marcus- he is a perfect H, gorgeous, courageous, brilliant- altogether hot! I also liked Kathlyn's best friend Juliana, she was really funny and bright.

What does Leslie Wadsworth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her rendition of the story was fantastic! Ms. Wadsworth is a gifted storyteller and actor, and her voice was the character of Kathlyn come to life. I enjoyed her interpretation of each of the characters' voices and personalities. Each person in the story was distinct and easy to identify while listening. Her voice is very clear and smooth, and her inflection and enunciation perfect. It was very easy to listen to Ms. Wadworth.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this in nearly one sitting as I couldn't put it down! The romance was hot, the relationship between Kathlyn and Marcus began with and had such a humorous element I found myself chuckling throughout. Then as I was drawn further into the plot, the characters and their machinations brought the action into the forefront. There was SOOO much action- it has you on the edge up until the end!

Any additional comments?

I loved this present day story with the added twist of the ancient Egyptian story thread. Ms. Wadsworth was a perfect selection to tell this tale and I highly recommend it .
