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?
This is my 2nd story by Nancy Campbell Allen and I loved it as much as the first! She is becoming another favorite author of mine. I sometimes shy away from novellas. This one was a good length for me at 108 pages. The historical fiction and the exotic location are two elements that I love. This took place right around the turn of the century which is a time period that I have not read many stories about. That is always a plus for me. I love imagining the characters in times that I am not overly familiar with. The characters in this story are amazing. I quickly grew to love them dearly. Many of the supporting characters too. The circumstances that they found themselves in kept me laughing. Their openness and honesty with each other was refreshing. There are a few supporting characters that I believe Allen could develop to create their own story. It would be fun to see this group of characters continue on.
Rating: 5 stars – I loved it!!!
