Cara Devon has always been curious and impulsive, but tangling with a serial killer might cure that. Permanently.
1861. Cara has a simple mission in London – finalise her father's estate and sell off his damned collection of priceless artifacts. Her plan goes awry when a killer stalks the nobility, searching for an ancient Egyptian relic rumoured to hold the key to immortality.
Nathaniel Trent, known as the villainous viscount, is relentless in his desire to lay his hands on both Cara and the priceless artifacts. His icy exterior and fiery touch stirs Cara's demons, or could he lay them to rest?
Self-preservation fuels Cara's search for the gem known as Nefertiti's Heart. In a society where everyone wears a mask to hide their true intent, she needs to figure out who to trust, before she sacrifices her own heart and life.
Good read with interesting plot and characters45
I started this book thinking it was just some light reading. Boy, was I wrong! This book is seemingly set in the Victorian Era, but it is reshaped in the author’s mind to be a meld of pre-modern and futuristic. It’s done in a subtle way. Then he mixes in a plot line that is full of intrigue. The main characters have a charisma that just pulls you in. I not only liked this, I wanted to be there and actually meet the characters. I’ll be looking for the other books in this series! Claudia Lopez55

I loved Nefertiti’s Heart! Characters, setting, steam punk touches, mystery, this one is well crafted to satisfy the discerning reader, whether that reader likes sci-fi, mystery, or more exotic fair.55
This book combines historical fiction, romance, murder mystery, and elements of steampunk into one great great story.55
Excellent Read. Extremely entertaining. Will read other books in the series.55
Not only is it time for hot popcorn but the mystic beat surrounding the style which this writer incorporates into the romance and villainous characters keeps my heart pounding for the next words to jump off the page and into my cerebral vortex. What an exciting twist of ideas and ancient history combined to spellbound every reader into this authors fantasy world so that anyone can enjoy the many adventures awaiting to literally experience for themselves.

Recently started to read a bunch of classic novels and for the most part have been disappointed. So I decided to give modern day books a chance and read this one. It's definitely my favorite book I've read ever. From the very first chapter the action begins. This book had it all. Love, murder, mystery, humor suspense and more. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.55
I got this as a freebie from Bookbub and am so glad I finally got around to reading it. As someone with a fascination of Egyptology and the Victorian era, and a love of all things steampunk, this novel hit every button just right. The storyline was superb, the love scenes written with the perfect amount of emotion and detail, and the suspense was divine. After decades of reading murder mysteries, true crime, and suspense, I can usually guess who the culprit is before the end... This novel had me guessing the whole way through. Can't wait to purchase the next in the series!!!55
