To be honest, I’m not much of a fan of time traveling novels, but Pyramids of Passion is something totally different. To begin with, it’s very well written. Ms. Lovett drew me into her story and kept me there with her vivid descriptions.
Even though there is a hot romance (or is that two?), at times I felt that the story was more about the main character herself, Rosie Carter, and her evolution as a woman, than a love tale. Furthermore, at one point in the novel, I couldn’t help wonder why Rosie didn’t research Edifu’s past and cast her doubts aside. However, with that said, Rosie is an endearing character and I was rooting for her from the start.
Her male counterparts are equally engaging. They’re not only attractive, or mannequins to serve a purpose. They felt like real people.
Pyramids of Passion is a hot, sensual read with a happy for now ending. I will certainly be looking for future stories from Ms. Lovett.
