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

FROM CAIRO, WITH LOVE is one of those romances that is perfectly balanced and delightful from beginning to end! You have a slightly unconventional and spunky heroine, a dashing while also rough around the edges hero, some side characters to liven things up, a slightly underlying suspense plot that gives an edge of danger, some sarcasm and humor, and romance that is definitely swoon-worthy. What more could a romance reader ask for? Highly recommended!

I loved this story! I loved the characters in all their fumbles and bravery. I loved the meaningful looks, the chemistry that rolled off the pages, the half hilarious situation they find themselves in, and the way the story builds to a romantic and dangerous climax. It had everything I enjoy in a romance, remained on the clean side with still plenty of sparks, and left me blissfully content.

In the end, was it what I wished for? A resounding yes! It's amazing how well this story was told in so few pages as well. Definitely one I plan on re-reading.

Content: Some innuendo and brief, mild violence, but clean.
