In the Court of Kemet (Ancient Egyptian Romances, #1)
Kemet (Egypt) 2975 B.C.E.
Though she cares deeply for her subjects, Merneith has never quite been comfortable in her role as queen. But now, if she can't find a way to stop the ego-maniacal pharaoh in his attempts to become a living god, Egypt and all her people will be brought to ruin. When her life is threatened, her only hope may be the newly appointed Captain of the Royal Guard, a handsome – yet brazen – foreigner with a mysterious past.
Captain Bey is certain the gods, with their sardonic humour, have consigned him to a life of transience and strife. Therefore he's not surprised when he finds himself drawn to the forbidden queen he is commissioned to protect. And of course the headstrong woman seems determined to make his life difficult. That is until circumstances leave her no choice but to accept his aid…
Rich in historic detail and intrigue, In the Court of Kemet is inspired by Queen Merneith, the first female ruler of Ancient Egypt. Follow her rise to power from the lavish palace of the ancient capital and along the dangerous banks of the River Nile.
