I've only read one or two by this author and the first I read - Lord of sin or Scandal? is such that I definitely need to explore more...

Wonderful entertainment. I love Carsington - I think this is the first time I read a romance with a male bimbo... although of course he''s better than just an air head. What a terrific read. Intellectual widow Mrs. Pembroke, who must hide that she''s the brain behind the research ends up enlisting Rupert''s aid to try to find her kidnapped brother. Brilliant fun. Still a keeper, but available for loan or ring.

this one arrived at my home today.
Too bad I just started Jude Deveraux's Duchess. Will read this one after. ;)
The pink cover looks a bit disturbing... :)

Journal Entry 6 by Annadlx from Wiesbaden, Hessen Germany on Saturday, February 23, 2008
Set in Egypt in 1821, Chase's romp of a romance possesses a fine sense of time and place. Solving the mystery of Egyptian hieroglyphics has been Daphne Pembroke's lifelong passion, one she has kept secret from everyone except her brother, Miles, who fronts as the hieroglyphics expert of the family. (Daphne's disapproving late husband believed that "intellectual endeavors put too great a strain on the inferior female brain.") When robbers steal a papyrus from her Cairo home that may lead to a vast fortune and kidnap Miles as well, Daphne knows the crooks have taken her brother so he can decipher the hieroglyphics. To find Miles before his captors realize he's clueless, she needs muscle in the form of hunky Rupert Carsington (a secondary character from Miss Wonderful, the previous book in the series), whom she springs from a local jail. Tracking the kidnappers takes Daphne, Rupert and their entourage down the Nile, where they face sandstorms, snakes and other perils. Comic relief comes in the form of a mongoose named Marigold. Though the book offers a fascinating glimpse into the workings of ancient Egypt, Rupert and Daphne's relationship, and the trials and errors thereof, remain the heart of the story.

I enjoyed this very much. I had to smile a lot about the funny characters and enjoyed the insight of life during that time in egypt. I'd love to have my own Marigold, don't you?
I was glad that this is a bit different than the usual romance style and it made a very easy read. ;)
Will contact Nickel27 and send the book on its way soon. Thank you for sharing, Sonia!

oops.. forgot to announce that Mr. Impossible made his way to Gauting safe and sound.
I already started reading so it shouldn't take too long! :-)

Journal Entry 11 by kiki66 from Gauting, Bayern Germany on Saturday, April 05, 2008
Have finished reading this book... it was quite a nice read at a time I needed it for I was quite ill and therefore this was the right kind of 'literature' :-)
What I liked most was the mongoose .. I certainly would like to have one :-)

Anyway, asked fritzykatz whether it's ok to send the book to her so it should be on its way by Monday.

The book's with me in Austria now.

Journal Entry 21 by kalise from St. Florian bei Linz, Oberösterreich Austria on Sunday, December 07, 2008
Finally a romance that's not set in Regency London! Awesome setting. I had a difficult time warming up to the heroine, even though I rather liked that she is a scholar attempting to learn the hieroglyphs. The hero's more sympathetic and fun to read about ;)

I will try to send the book on next week (Monday is a holiday here).

I am so sorry I have had this book so long but it couldn't be helped. I have tried to get into this book twice but just can't seem to, so I am going to send it back to penelope wanders as I think it is unfair for me to have it any longer. Sorry guys :(
