Cara Devon has always suffered curiosity and impetuousness, 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.
5 Reasons to read Nefertiti’s Heart
- A strong female character. She’s comfortable in who she is, and doesn’t back down from a fight.
- The story. It’s fast paced, and you won’t want to put it down.
- Egyptian myth. There is a lot about Egyptian myths in this story. The artifact that is being searched for is pretty impressive.
- Steampunk. There are automatons, steam powered carriages, and clock work things.
- Sexual tension. The chemistry between Cara and Nathaniel is so apparent.
