Publisher Description

Cara Devon has always been curious and impulsive, but tangling with a serial killer might cure that. Permanently.

1861. Cara has a simple mission in London – finalise her father's estate and sell off his damned collection of priceless artifacts. Her plan goes awry when a killer stalks the nobility, searching for an ancient Egyptian relic rumoured to hold the key to immortality.

Nathaniel Trent, known as the villainous viscount, is relentless in his desire to lay his hands on both Cara and the priceless artifacts. His icy exterior and fiery touch stirs Cara's demons, or could he lay them to rest?

Self-preservation fuels Cara's search for the gem known as Nefertiti's Heart. In a society where everyone wears a mask to hide their true intent, she needs to figure out who to trust, before she sacrifices her own heart and life.

Questions, questions all about Nefertiti’s Heart

I started this book thinking it was just some light reading. Boy, was I wrong! This book is seemingly set in the Victorian Era, but it is reshaped in the author’s mind to be a meld of pre-modern and futuristic. It’s done in a subtle way. Then he mixes in a plot line that is full of intrigue. The main characters have a charisma that just pulls you in. I not only liked this, I wanted to be there and actually meet the characters. I’ll be looking for the other books in this series!
