My Thoughts:
Off we go on an adventure to Egypt! And since we did spend most of the time in Egypt I was glad for it, (no long sea journey ;)

Sydney writes short stories for a paper, a heroine called Millicent who lives the life of an adventurer in Egypt. Just, it seems everyone thinks she is real! And while Sydney loves Egypt she has never been there.

Harry spent almost 20 years in Egypt and he is trying to write a novel, with facts! Not silly adventures that does not show reality. And so he sets of a sparring match with The Queen of the Desert. To show what a phony she is.

Off to Egypt she goes to prove him wrong (well even if he is right ;) and he goes with to keep check. Along with a reporter, and a few aunts. Nothing beats a trio of sweet and opinionated old ladies!

Obviously Sydney the liar and Harry who pretends to be his own nephew will fall in love. Obviously they have both lied to each other. And along the way they then find love and have an adventure or two. 

I enjoyed them trying to prove each other wrong. Nice banter, and awesome trio of aunts. Fun book.

Narrator Marian Hussey
She has a nice voice and does different characters well. She brought in smiles and humour.

Harry Armstrong has spent years in Egypt, recovering relics and disregarding rules. Now, he’s back in England with a new title and a new purpose: penning his exploits. But his efforts are overshadowed by London’s favorite writer about Egypt - a woman they call "The Queen of the Desert", of all things. Worse, her stories - serialized in newspapers and reprinted in books - are complete rubbish. 

Miss Sidney Honeywell didn’t set out to deceive anyone. It’s not her fault readers assumed her Tales of a Lady Adventurer in Egypt were real! Admitting her inadvertent deception now would destroy her reputation and her livelihood. But when the earl of Brenton challenges her to travel to Egypt to prove her expertise, accompanied by his dashing, arrogant nephew, what choice does she have but to pack her bags?

With the matchmaking founders of the Lady Travelers Society in tow, Harry is determined to expose Sidney’s secret. But the truth might not be as great a revelation as discovering that love can strike even the most stubborn of hearts.


  1. Sounds like a lot of fun and what an entourage!

  2. It isn’t often you get a historical regency romance set in Egypt. That’s a nice change.


    1. Dang I did not mention it. It is Victorian!

  3. I love romances with good banter! This one sounds like a fun one.

    1. I do like actually dislike each other hehe

  4. Nice, a story that takes place in Egypt. I'm not one for historical romances, but I'd read this one over many others for the setting alone :)
