As his ancestors have done, Sheik Jabari and his desert warriors pledged to keep the Almha safe from infidels. They monitor the progress of the outsiders. Jabari is shocked to see a beautiful, blond woman among the diggers and he goes undercover pretending to be a worker. When Elizabeth realizes where the artifact is hidden, Jabari abducts her so that his charge remains hidden. Stunningly, Elizabeth and Jabari are attracted to one another. When he sees a dove shaped birthmark on her, he believes that she is the reincarnation of Queen Kiya, whom the ancient prophecy claims that one day she and the chief of her guards will return as lovers.

Fans of paranormal historical romance will want to read THE FALCON AND THE DOVE, a fast-paced tale that hooks the audience from the moment Jabari sees Elizabeth among the excavators. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with action yet has time to develop a love subplot between the lead characters. Though the reincarnation angle adds suspense and an otherworldly feel to the novel, it also detours around a strong bi-cultural romance that makes for a riveting novel that glues the audience to their seat until the final page is read.
