With hair the color of spun gold, gray eyes so pale they seem translucent, and a beauty so exquisite it was heavenly, Kiya is a high priestess in Egypt during Queen Cleopatra’s rise to power. An adviser to the Queen, she has a secret that has resulted in deaths to ensure that it continues.
During the passing years, her loneliness grew until it was almost too painful to endure. She desired more than anything to find true love once again, but it seems the behind-the-scenes politics will thwart her in her desires. Playing a role in the Queens attempt to usurp her husband to be the new pharaoh, Kiya’s desires must take second place.
