Talented cardiologist Meryt Brownstone doesn’t have the luxury of getting involved with people. As an ex-military officer who still works as an undercover mercenary for the U.S. government, personal drama is something Meryt can do without. But the solitude of her carefully orchestrated life is broken when Dr. Rene Daniels appears.
Meryt’s plan to avoid personal drama flies out the window as she battles her feelings and her better judgment. Love may be within her reach, but she is perplexed by Rene’s odd behavior. Meryt isn’t the only one with secrets and hidden agendas.
When she is called to duty on a secret mission in Sudan, old secrets as well as lost ones come to light. Soon Meryt is catapulted down a mysterious path—a bloody path she may have traveled before. Her world is turned upside down when she uncovers parallels between her life and that of ancient Nubian Queen Nitocris, who fought for her homeland and for a man she loved thousands of years ago.
Meryt is caught in a race against time and unknown enemies. If she can’t figure out her true mission and its relationship to ancient Egypt quickly, she will be doomed to relive the same bloody ending as the ancient queen.
