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.
I'm a sucker for anything remotely Egyptian or Archaeology themed, so the term artifact hunter in the series title of course perks my little ears up! It means exciting finds and adventure, (I know the reality is usually far different, but in novels it means exciting finds and adventure! Just go with me here...) which Nefertiti's Heart delivers, with the promise of a whole series of same! Yay!
Our heroine is a tough rogue of a young lady who is tired of getting knocked down by life and is determined to live on her own terms now, exacting a bit of a revenge for her bad treatment at the same time. We have a charming, maybe good heart-ed but definitely dangerous love interest for our Miss Devon, who might be our bad guy, or might not, we aren't sure. We have a highly sought after artifact steeped in mythological lore and promising immortal life! What more could we need?! More adventures of course!
This was a fun and colorful adventure with great characters that I really enjoyed. Lucky for me, a friend has recently gifted me with several more in the series, so I'm all ready to go!
