Blog Tour - From Cairo with Love


About the book: From the publisher of the USA TODAY bestselling & #1 Amazon bestselling Timeless Romance Anthology series in Clean & Wholesome Romance, comes the Timeless Romance Singles line. 

FROM CAIRO, WITH LOVE: A brand new historical romance novella from bestselling author Nancy Campbell Allen. 

Valentine Baker longs for adventure, so when the opportunity comes to travel to Venice and be a companion for the unconventional Contessa, she takes it--but they don’t stay in Venice long. Valentine finds herself on a ship bound for Cairo so the Contessa can hunt down a thief at one of her archaeological digs there. Before they ever get close to the coast of Egypt, however, the ship is threatened by a violent storm and someone has an ulterior motive for sticking close to the Contessa and her traveling companions.

Mr. Maxwell is assigned to protect the Contessa and the charming Valentine. He tries to keep his distance, but her warm nature and easy laugh draw him in. He soon comes to cherish their time together, until someone attempts to drug him, and the aftermath reveals serious consequences for Valentine. He’ll do anything to keep her safe and her reputation intact, yet with treachery on board and his heart at stake, Mr. Maxwell must make a choice that will change his life forever. Can he win the woman of his dreams or will whoever wants to hurt them get close enough to take away his one chance for love? 

My review: I really enjoyed reading this one. It's a cute historical romance. I loved that it's novella length, so it's quick and easy to read. I loved that it felt like it was complete, even though it's a novella, sometimes they don't. 

I thought that Valentine was a great character, she's getting old enough that she's about to be considered an old maid, and in her family old maids live in the house by the ocean by themselves. I love the way that Valentine is comfortable with herself to be looking forward to living in that house. I love that she's excited for her adventures that will take her to Cairo, and the way she's flexible enough to go with the flow when necessary.

Maxwell is a fun character as well. I like the way that he's a man's man. He owns a group of houses where men can fight each other - but at the same time, he's not always looking for a fight and I love that he refuses to spar with those that are just curious about fighting him. 

There was a ton going on in this story, mystery, intrigue, travel to new and exotic places, and there was also room for fun and craziness. My favorite scene was right after the big storm with the rowdy and crazy group, that scene changes the course of both Valentine and Maxwell's lives. I'm not going to spoil anything here...go get your own copy!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
