    Exciting And Intriguing

    Confronting intruders with a revolver is not something most young ladies of the “ton” would be expected to do. But in When a Lady Desires a Wicked Lord by Tara Kingston, Alexandra Quinn does just that. Unfortunately, the small revolver is no match for the man’s body armor. A noted Egyptologist, Alex is targeted because of a map supposedly send to her by a professor friend who has recently died. This map supposedly directs the holder to the tomb of an Egyptian King untouched by grave robbers. If true, the tomb could be invaluable both in terms of historic significance and financial value. Benedict Weston, Lord Marlsbrook, arrives just in time to assist Alex with the intruder. Advised of the man’s intent to break into Alex’s home, Benedict arrives just in time to stop the man. Years ago it seemed the two were destined for each other. But Benedict’s need to bring his family’s estate out of debt interfered. He began selling the antiquities which Alex was dedicated to preserving in museums, creating an insurmountable divide. The two are brought together again trying to find this mysterious map. They also want to get to the bottom of the untimely deaths of a number of colleagues. Only Alex’s expertise can decipher the coded message they received from one of the victims. Exciting And Intriguing It is always particularly fun to read a book with such an excellent storyline. I liked the intrigue of the mystery, and the characters involved. It’s especially nice to read a book where the female is the scholar. I like the good strong female character. This is the fourth book in the Her Majesty’s Most Secret Service series, although with those work very well as a standalone novel. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

    Very Entertaining

    Alexandra Quinnis an expert in translating hieroglyphics. Someone thinks she has been sent a map that will lead to treasure in Egypt. That puts her in grave danger. Her problem is, who is the bad guy that has been killing people for the map???. Among the suspects is the man she was once engaged to. Benedict Weston needs the money from the artifacts he finds to get his family estate out if debt. Just how far will he go to do that?? A romantic, murder/ mystery for us and our characters to solve. Our brave and independent by heroine will go to any lengths to find the villain. An entertaining historical adventure.

    A Wonderful Adventure

    London 1892. The author captured my attention from the first page and did not let go until the end. The well developed characters of Alexandra Quinn and Benedict Weston came to life and seemed very realistic for the era. One of my favorite subjects of Egyptology had a hugh part in this intriguing story of mystery, murder and a second chance at love. Alex is an amazing Egyptologist that has first hand knowledge of the value and importance of the artifacts found. At home in England she is unexpectedly attacked by an intruder looking for a map that she supposedly was entrusted. Frantic to get away she is saved my none other than Benedict Weston, a man from her past who had crushed her young heart. Benedict has come back to England from Egypt with the express purpose of saving Alex from a killer he knew was after her for information. Or was that the only thing he wanted? After all he had left her years ago for greed it seemed. The emotions between them are sizzling and you will be taken on an intense journey of discovery that will keep you turning the pages as fast as you can. This is the third story in a series but can be read alone. But why would you want to do that? This book was excellent and I intend to go back and read the rest! Tara Kingston has written a fabulous story that will sweep you away to another time!!!
