The Promise Of A Kiss

(The first book in the Regency Novella series)
A Novella by

Egypt, 1815.
A reluctant hero.
When cash-strapped adventurer Harry Tremayne accepts five thousand pounds to locate Lady Hester Morden in Egypt, he knows he's in for a rough ride. The headstrong mapmaker has been a source of irritation--and forbidden attraction--for years.

A damsel in distress?
Lady Hester doesn't need rescuing. She's far too busy enjoying her freedom to return to the stuffy confines of London. Besides, handsome scoundrel Harry Tremayne is the last man she wants to see; she's still plagued by the memory of their one, unforgettable kiss.

A deadly curse.
When Hester discovers a necklace in the sand--one which may or may not be cursed by an ancient Egyptian goddess--the two are thrust into an adventure that takes them from the desert's seductive heat to the perils of Napoleonic France. Can they ignore their inconvenient attraction long enough to save the world? The answer may just lie in the promise of a single kiss . . .
