There was no sign of domesticity harem was empty. She mentioned her feeling to Said, one of the men who had escorted her on the night she first came to the house by Lake Ezbekhiah. It seemed that Said was John’s chief lieutenant and he also appeared to be a friend

This is such a good book!

We start out in Egypt, where our h finds herself in a terrifying situation. She is the daughter of a missionary, himself the second son of a duke. This missionary father takes his wife and daughter to Africa, where the harsh conditions and unrelenting climate take their toll.

But the vicissitudes of Africa are nothing to the situation the h faces now; what are climate and an unpredictable environment compared to the evil of men?

From Egypt we travel to England, where our h wants nothing more than a retired life of home, hearth and family. She makes choices based on this dream, but is this really what will bring her ultimate happiness?

This is a novel of well developed characters, an interesting bit of historical background, and a satisfying romance.

I liked this book, except that the heroine spends 50% of the book engaged to the wrong man. I also didn't like that Julianne sleeps with John before breaking off her engagement to William, Lord Randolph. That's cheating in my book. John is a compelling hero, but William is such a nice, likable guy who doesn't do anything wrong so I spent a large part of the book feeling sorry for him rather than rooting for the H/h. William is in love with Julianne, so it's obvious he's going to end up broken hearted. In Suzanne MacLean's One Good Earl Deserves a Lover, the heroine is engaged, but she and her fiancé are both fond of each other, neither is in love. So when he gets jilted, it's not as sad, and MacLean matches him up and gives him his own HEA. That worked better for me. Wolf's book is probably more realistic, but it didn't leave me with that happy feeling when I really enjoy a book.

Though I didn't thoroughly enjoy this book, i did love the descriptions of Africa and the scenes and history of Egypt. Joan Wolf is an excellent writer and she really made these places come alive. I would recommend this book, but maybe try other books by this author first.

** Somewhat clean romance with several passionate kisses and the bedroom door slams shut during one love scene.

Oh My Word! This was one of the best little regencies I've ever read. What we have in this story is a young woman whose father, Lord Richard, was the son of the Duke of Crew and a dedicated disciple of Wilberforce. He was a single minded visionary with a bent against slavery and decided early on, the rest of his life would be turned toward abolishing slavery. He left England and traveled to Africa taking with him his wife and 14 year old daughter, Julianne.

Sadly, Lord Richard's wife lived only one year after her arrival in Africa, giving her husband and his mission everything she had although physically weak. Julianne was a much stronger type of female and flourished in the wilds of Africa becoming a crack shot and reveling in the beautiful landscape. Unfortunately, she eventually came to pretty much hate her father who was an unbending tyrant.

After her father passed, Julianne fell into the hands slave traffickers who valued the price of a white virgin enough to take her to Egypt where they stood to gain the most for their money. Rather than give away the details of the story, suffice it to say, her savior came in the person of Mr. John Champernoun, who was the nephew of an earl and had become involved in the political climate of Egypt. To say there is chemistry between John and Julianne would be the understatement of the year. But, he's an adventurer who has no consideration of taking a wife and Julianne senses in John the same forceful personality of her father and Wants. None. Of. That. In. Her. Life. No Siree - she definitely looking forward to having tyrants out of her life.

John accompanies Julianne to England and places her in the warm arms of her grandmother and immediately returns to the hustle and bustle of the tumultuous world of Cairo where he continues to work with the new ruler toward what he feels are the best interests of Egypt and England. He's a man between worlds and he would have it no other way.

Back home in England, Julianne is brought out and London falls at her feet. Within a few months she's engaged to be married to the catch of the season, Lord Rutherford. But... even Julianne is bright enough to know that the most appealing quality of Lord Rutherford is the life he and his parents have and the draw she feels for his father is one symbolic of the ideal father she never had in her own life.

In the meantime, John's uncle passes and the title of Earl of Denham falls upon his shoulders. This is all the excuse John needs to return to England and look up Julianne. When he realizes she's engaged, things begin to get really interesting. He manages to maneuver himself into her world and everything she thought she wanted becomes unsettled in her mind and her heart. Eventually she realizes that John accepts her for who she is more than anyone ever has and comes to realize he's not like her father.

This is such an amazing story with huge amounts of chemistry between John and Julianne. I wish it could have been a full length book. At 157 pages, it's more like a novella. Yet, it is still a story that will be well remembered by this reader for many years.

Oh my stars and garters, this was a good one! The first Joan Wolf I've ever read and it was a lulu:)

This is a sweeping, very interesting novel, ranging from exotic Africa during a period in Egyptian history that is seldom written about, to Regency England that is portrayed in perfect detail. Strong, intense, intelligent and flawed protagonists ~ flawed, meaning they are human with human foibles like the rest of us. They're real.

Fascinating to be a fly on the wall watching John and Julianne come to terms with who they truly are in their souls and to see the gradual recognition of their love for one another emerge. A love they both deny, they both fight. But a love that's inevitable, inescapable and soul deep.

As well as the impeccable background, I love the subtlety and intricacies of the character development. Quite exceptional story.

Incidentally, I initially borrowed this ebook but loved it so much I ended up buying it.
Enjoy your reading! :)

I love this book. It has a unique storyline. A tall, dark and handsome hero and a strong, intelligent heroine. The hero has been independent and adventurous and the heroine learns to be strong at a young age. Hero saves heroine from a horrible fate early in the story, sees her safely back to England. When he reads her engagement announcement, decides he is the one for her. Great story! Love Joan Wolf!
