Teaser Tuesday: Wrapped in Your Arms

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

~ Grab your current read

~ Open to a random page

~ Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

~ BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

~ Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser today comes from Wrapped in Your Arms by Grace Samuels. It’s a short historical erotic romance and is set in Egypt. If you liked The Mummy, you’ll enjoy this story as much as I did. I recommend it!

For the thousandth time, he asked himself what he was doing in Egypt. Had he really thought coming to this dry, dust-filled country would solve anything?

Wrapped In Your Arms

In 1922, Cairo is a city filled with French Foreign Legionnaires and treasure hunters seeking the lost wealth hidden beneath the ever-shifting Egyptian sands.

New finds and discoveries are found and brought to the Museum of Antiquities almost daily—only to be packed in crates and hidden away. Pieces of an ancient puzzle not yet ready to be put together.

Howard Carter is on the verge of finding King Tutankhamun’s tomb in the desert sands of the Valley of the Kings.

It’s a time of great excitement and discovery.

However, Daniel Livinghouse is in the historical City of the Living for an entirely different reason. He’s not seeking treasure—he’s looking for a woman. A woman who has reached through the millennia to haunt his dreams for the last decade.

On the day of his eighteenth birthday, Daniel dreamed of her for the first time. Initially the dreams were random, but over the last year—a decade later—they had become more frequent to where she visited him almost nightly. Her shoulder-length black hair decorated with silver beads, the honey tone of her skin. They stood under a star-filled sky, amongst giant stone structures. He could feel her fingers caressing his face, tracing his brow and cheekbone, stroking down the side of his arm until she reached his fingers, wrapping them within her own…

Too bad he doesn’t know she’s been “dead” for over five thousand years.

Book details: This book contains the Book of the Dead, a curious Howard Carter, a naked woman determined to seduce, a man willing to give in to all that seduction—after a little resistance of course *wink*, and ancient gods. Oh! And a mummy. Can’t have a paranormal story like this without at least one mummy.

      It was a tightly written short story, and the setting grabbed me. It also had a great twist at the end.

    Sounds like a historical romance. Not my usual genre but I like the archaeology slant.

      Nodding. Historical isn’t for everyone, bit if you enjoyed The Mummy movies, this story is in a similar vein.
