But her most treasured possession was the priceless sarcophagus of an Egyptian Queen who'd been separated from her beloved Pharaoh and was said to carry a terrible curse. Cassandra thought the true value of the mummy was a well guarded secret even the ton was in the dark until a rather presumptuous but decidedly handsome stranger came calling. Then she discovered his scandalous secret, he was the rogue whose family was responsible for a long ago tragedy. But Alistair Gordan needed Miss Russell, his brother's prized Pharaoh's mummy had been purloined, and she alone could help him recover it. The perils of unmasking a thief placed both Alistair and Cassandra in dire danger, as they set out on an adventure that could unearth the most precious treasure of all - true love.
