Fashionably Dead is available now on All Romance E-books and Lulu so for today I’m telling you about the last of the July releases–Called to Duty.
Alexander and his military team are completely out of their element when they go from fighting in a modern day war to being the Hail Mary of an ancient one. Will their honor, valor and skill help the Nubians win a war against a murderous Pharaoh? Or will a displacement in time cost these men their life?
“I am Nefertari, Nubian princess warrior.”
He chuckled. “They hit you a little too hard huh? Nubia’s been gone a long time.”
“Never! Nubia shall not fall to that wretched beast. I will die before he conquers my people.” She was the only one left in line for the throne. In Nubia it was not impossible for women to rule. The strongest warrior of the family would rise up and be ruler. Unfortunately, this war had claimed everybody, except her brother and he was not interested in ruling. He was only interested in fighting and leading the men into war. He had told their father as much. If her father had listened to her he would have been safe on Nubian land, but he left and the traitor to their people, to their king, had betrayed them, leading him into an ambush.
“Look, I don’t know what’s going on, but things are kind of sketchy here. There’s no electricity, or running water…”
“Electricity? What is that?”
“Um…wow…” Ian looked flustered and at a loss for words.
“You are from what time?”
“When do you come from?”
“You mean where?”
“You are not from here I know, but what time? What year?”
“Two thousand twelve,” he balked.
She gasped. “Goddess! I can’t believe she searched so far ahead. You must be very skilled warriors.” She shook her head trying to clear the emotions and thoughts racing wildly within her. “What garb is that you wear?”
“Our uniforms,” he took a step back from her. “Is this some kind of joke? Are you crazy or just a ploy to get us to divulge military secrets? I can give you name rank and serial number, but you won’t get anything else from me.”
She chuckled. “I do not need anything else other than to know that we have the same enemy. If you are entrusted to the Pharaoh then I will kill you, just as I will kill him for what he has done to my father. But first I will make Hex pay for his betrayal. That is the oath I swear to the goddess. My father’s death will not go unpunished.”
Called to Duty is part of the Adventures Through Time series and will be out at some point in July 2012.
