Even being in Egypt on a grant from the college she teaches at to search for an undiscovered necropolis she’s certain lies below the sands beyond the pyramids of Gizah doesn’t give her the happiness she’d hoped it would. There has always been and is something missing. Love.Then her workmen uncover Ramose Nakh-Min’s ancient tomb and an amulet from his sarcophagus hurls her back to 1340 B.C–where she falls hopelessly in love with the man she was destined to be with, noble Ramose, who faithfully serves the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaton and his queen Nefertiti. She’s fallen into perilous times with civil war threatening Egypt. She’s been mistaken for one of Ramose’s runaway slaves and with her blond hair, jinn green eyes and fair skin she doesn’t fit in. Some say she’s magical and evil. Ramose’s favorite, Makere, attempts to kill her. The people, angry the pharaoh Akhenaton has set his queen Nefertiti aside and he’s forced them to worship his god, Aton (instead of their many Egyptian gods), are rising up against him. Maggie’s caught in the middle of it in a dangerous land and time she doesn’t belong in. In the end, desperately in love with Ramose, will she find a way to stay alive and with him in ancient Egypt–and to make a difference in his world and history? Because Maggie has finally found love....

    Any book by Kathryn Meyer Griffith is one I want on my reading list and this beauty is no exception. I loved my trip to Egypt with Maggie in this time travel, alternate history novel where she will cross the boundaries of time to find the the answer to the riddle of the lost necropolis and Nefertiti, and her one true love.Maggie’s mother had warned her about life’s surprises…“It’ll knock you on your butt all right.”And she is finding how prophetic her words would be.Maggie’s special talents, which she knew nothing about, were coming to the forefront since she arrived in Egypt. She had been searching for answers about the lost necropolis and Nefertiti, and wondering whether she would ever find love.She never expected to find it here…Ramose.It was so easy to get lost in Maggie’s world of ancient Egypt. I love what Kathryn Meyer Griffith did with the storyline and I was surprised at the ending. I never saw it coming and that is always a wonderful thing. Not so easy to surprise a prolific reader like me.What would you sacrifice everything for the love of your life? Could she… Would she…be the one to change history? I lover her courage, determination and willingness to sacrifice it all.I almost felt the dry breeze and the sand from the storm trying to peel the skin from my bones, the terror and abuse the citizens suffered at the hands of one so greedy and evil that he would stop at nothing to have what he desired.Kathryn Meyer Griffith has a way of bringing her worlds and characters to life through words. The romance will cross the boundaries of time and I don’t think the ending is one you would anticipate. So…come on…travel to Egypt with us and learn its untold secrets.I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Egyptian Heart by Kathryn Meyer Griffith.See more at fundinmental

    Author: Kathryn Meyer GriffithPublished by: Eternal PressAge Recommend: AdultReviewed By: Arlena DeanRaven Rating: 5Blog Review For: GMTAReview:"Egyptian Heart" by Kathryn Meyer Griffith was a different type of romantic read...through time travel all mixed up in the past (1340 BC) Egyptian life, culture and then brought in a romance of a woman from the twenty-first century. I really liked the way this wonderful author brings us another one of her good novels... that will captivate our attention for the reader to want more.The storyline was simply well written with lots of detail. This was definitely a page turner for me. Maggie Owens was a Egyptologist who was given a grant for three months to work in Egypt (Great Pyramids) to explore the areas around Gizah searching for the 'lost tomb.' In Egypt, its life has very harsh, hot and lonely...however, Maggie finds the ancient tomb of Ramose, Nakh-Min...and then finds the secret area that had a 'magic amulet.' Maggie had already been given a amulet for protection....everything was fine until the two amulets touched...and then 'Maggie falls and the past comes forth where she meets Ramose...who was the servant of Pharaoh Athenationa and Queen Nefertiti.' How did Maggie get there and will she come back? What was Maggie up against with the people? How does this 21st century woman deal with this situation...now in ancient time ....'of being a woman of lesser value ...and even slaves to the men?' Would Maggie find love in this place with all of the violence, turbulence and danger that was all around her? Being the master storyteller that this author is...... using historical references about the Egyptian pharaohs and the politicis delivering her message in the story to the reader. Now this is the part where I say you will have to pick up this good read to find out....I did and enjoyed the read!If you are in for a strong hero, great heroine and loss of action-pact with some real interesting characters from the time long-past....then I would recommend "Egyptian Heart" as a excellent time travel romance novel for you.

    Having read so many books by this author, most of them horror and thrillers, I was wondering how she’d do with a romance novel. She did beautifully.Kathryn swept me back in time right along with Maggie Owen, an Egyptologist. The unearthing of Ramose Nakh-Min’s tomb is a significant find and she never could have imagined the mysterious event that catapulted her back to 1340 A.D. Egypt, right in the middle of an escaped slave round up. Her knowledge of this period saved her from death and since she didn’t know when or if she’d ever return to her time, she did her best to blend in and soak up the culture. She never planned to fall in love. And never suspected it could cost her everything.Kathryn writes a compelling story. She knows her stuff. I could see everything. Ever wondered what Egypt was like way back when? You’ll know after reading Egyptian Heart. I was quickly wrapped up in Maggie’s adventure, wondering whether she would ever get back home and if she would even want to. How would it work if she stayed? What was waiting for her if she made it back to present day?So many possibilities and the author weaves her spell so well.I received a complimentary copy. My review is voluntarily given.

    The writing is just not good. I got 60% of the way through and I want to know what happens but I just can't any more.

    I hate to give negative reviews because I feel disrespectful towards the authors and their hard works but sometimes it necessary, unavoidable. Just like it is the case this time. Despite the bad Goodreads average rating the beautiful and eye-catchy cover, the time traveling plot and the promising synopsis kind of led me on and lulled me into false hope. Unfortunately there were so many things I didn’t like about the book that it is a surprise I even could force myself to finish reading it.Let me start with that the biggest and most impacting mistake/hole was the plot itself. It was really slow and boring a hell. This is not a really long story but the storyline was dragging and it even concentrated on the wrong aspects of the events and on the wrong moments. And not only that but with the whole historical fiction genre you would think that there at least some accurate historical events. I don’t need anything really big or so because it’s fiction but at least the basic actions of people and such could be authentic and it is not. There is so much asinine assumptions and historical incorrect information in it that it hurts. Also the plot sailed through the important and substantial events practically in two sentences and then detailed mushy and inconsequential conversations over pages. It has a messed up structure.There also was a lot of potential not just in the time period the author chooses but the places too. She could have created beautiful, vivid and descriptive pictures when introducing places, clothes even people but she fall short on that front too. Don’t even get me started on the main character. She is supposed to be a history professor yet she act so stupid and uneducated most of the cases, although most of it is the fault of the writing. First when she realizes that she traveled back in time and not in a movie set, however hard to believe it, she does it not because the place she wakes up, the people, the clothing, the language or the really real pain she feel thanks to being slashed by a whip but because of the cruel look in the eyes of the soldier. Then she constantly introduces herself as a college professor or the thing she worries about the most is the then not existing grammar she may use when she only can talk to them thanks to the magic of a necklace. She is more like a dreamer swept away by delusions and not an educated professor. Her actions and personality clashes with her supposed character. She just creates unviable situations in that time period and it makes the whole story fall apart. Her relationship should be the main focus of the story but it is so insignificant and suppressed part of the book that it makes it impossible to enjoy it. It is not even developed and so slow and shallow. I didn’t feel any kind of chemistry between the characters and they didn’t have time to really create a connection. It’s a really bad insta love situation.I found Ramose interesting and even liked him in regards that he is not romanticized at least not much in the beginning. He is the most authentic part of the book. Cruel and hard when he first meets Maggie but then slowly opens up. He is still arrogant but smart, too.I kept hoping that something good is going to happen but it didn’t. I like time travel romances but the kind where the travelers adjust and try to fit into their new surroundings using their modern ‘tool set’, knowledge but Egyptian heart is not like that. It is boring, with a horrible main character and shallow structure and a lot of messy situations. Suffered it through and it hurt.Other reviews from me, here:FantasyRaiders

    What a fun ride I have had reading this time travel romance. It is a great mix between the past Egyptian life and culture and the romance a woman from our twenty-first century. It is beautifully crafted to please historians and romance lovers of every age. Although a romance book, I was very pleased to see it is a clean, wholesome tale.The story is that of Maggie Owen, whose dream of being an Egyptologist and college professor digging into the sands of Egypt becomes a reality when she is offered a grant to spend three months digging near the Great Pyramids.All goes well until an Egyptian guide gives her an amulet to ward off evil, and then she finds an identical amulet in the tomb of Ranose, a great warrior of Egyptian times. She tentatively puts the two together and in the next moment she is standing in the long dead past—Egyptian history before Christ. How she gets there and when she will come back are the least of her problems. At this ancient time, women are of a lesser value, even slaves to the men.How does a twenty-first century free woman deal with all those problems you ask? Well, you will have to read this entertaining book and find out, like I did, that this adventure will easily become one of your favorites. This book teaches how a sweet person (be it a man, a woman or a child) can make a difference in the lives of many. I would recommend this book for readers older than fourteen, especially adults.

    They say love can be found in the strangest of places, but what about thousands of years in the past? Maggie Owens never believed in true love until she was sent back in time to 1340 B.C Egypt. It is here that Maggie Owens adventure begins and she soon realizes that going home may not be what she wants after meeting a handsome Egyptian warrior named Ramose. Now she must fight to stay alive, to protect her new found friends, save an ancient Egyptian queen, and to keep her true love. Maggie Owens was a strong character with a lot of depth. I enjoyed reading about her adventures in the past and it was really believable. The story was well thought out and didn’t just throw the character into another time. There were reasons for what happened and all of the loose ends were tied up. The characters really made me feel for them. I was actually afraid for them when they were being attacked and sad when something went wrong. My favorite part of the whole book however was the relationship between Ramose and Maggie. They didn’t start out on great terms, but gradually grew to love each other. Their love for one another was really sweet and endearing as well and made me envious. Transport yourself back to another time and place where true love really does exist and check out Kathryn Meyer Griffith’s “Egyptian Heart”.

    Wow. This listen drew me in and gave me a glimpse of life in Egypt around 1300 B.C. I appreciate when authors obviously spend time researching the topic, whereby broadening world views and enriching readers’ lives. The historical references added such a rich layer and texture to the story that I felt I was getting so much more than I had expected.Egyptian Heart was such an enjoyable listen. Our heroine -- Maggie Owen, an Egyptologist – gets a grant and finally get a chance to experience Egypt, which was her lifelong dream. Life in Egypt, however, turns out to not be as she had envisioned it as she finds herself in a brutal time, facing many challenges as her outlook clashes with the culture there. Then she falls back in time and meets Ramose. For me, that romance was sweet. I loved that couple. Then the adventure increased with plot twists and turns. Very intellectually stimulating, too. This was definitely not your average time travel story.A very captivating listen. 5/5 listen. Again, kudos to you, Ms. Griffith.*I received a free audiobook from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.*

    I was given the opportunity to read this book in exchange of an honest review. I was surprised by this story, the protagonist is a strong female who travels to Ancient Egypt where she discovers the true love of her life. From beginning to end, I couldn't put it down. It is very well written, the author have made a good research about that time, the history and costumes of Egyptian people in the time of the pharaohs.I had to admit that I love time-travel romance novels so it was easy for me to like this one, but not all novels of this type of genre are well written but as I said before, this one is so good. I wish the author could write more. If you are interested in reading a novel about a strong woman, with a lot of action, romance and interesting characters in Ancient Egypt, this is the book for you and you will not regret it.

    I was hoping this book would be more about time travel and less about a romance,as I don't care for romance books.It was written so any teen would like it.The narration by Erica L Risberg was terrible and took away from the storyline.Her pronunciations and 'voices' were just awful.A woman visiting Egypt is thrown back in time to the days of Akenaten and Nefertiti.She is taken for a slave but has a rescuer,with whom she falls in love.She is portrayed as a seer after revealing her secret.She knows what will happen to the Kings family and tells nefertit to take her girls and go.Will she get back to her time?Will her love come with her? Read it in book/kindle form if you want an answer.I was given this book for an honest review.

    I really enjoyed this book. I love all things relating to Egypt. It was refreshing to see a character that wanted hold off from sex until she was with the man she would marry, and it was refreshing to see a male character respect that and use self-control. This book is a time-travel romance, where an Egyptologist gets sent back to the time of the pharaohs, and falls in love. I like this book's take on what happened to Nefertiti and her daughters. It was just really fun to see how a modern woman would react back in that time and to see all differences between the two times and cultures. I listened to the Audible audio book, and the narrator did a good job and had a pleasant voice. She differentiated between characters well, and made the experience enjoyable.

    Time-travel. Is there anyone who knows I don’t like this genre? Well, don’t let that stop you from reading this tale because it’s a good one! There’s plenty of detail, good dialogue, and a story that doesn’t exactly follow the usual person-from-the-future-now-in-the-past outline. Cynic that I am (and this is a bit of a spoiler, so please skip if you don’t want to know) I half-expected Maggie to return to the present and meet someone who would be the descendant of her lost-love, the man who died 3400 years before her birth. The author doesn’t do that but she does brings us a Happily Ever After which will satisfy everyone, while tying up a good many loose ends. A couple of minor historical inaccuracies notwithstanding, this is a book to curl up with and enjoy. You’ll like it!

    "A really nice, well researched historical read"After spending a fair amount of time with the History Channel and PBS, I was glad to see such a well done time travel novel. Characters all believable and the essential ones done in depth. Not suited to skimming if print copy, in my opinion, you don't want to miss a nuance.Erica Risberg does a fine job with characterizations and voice alterations. Has the calm manner of a dispatcher on the line with a caller.

    I really wanted to like this book, and maybe I would had if I wasn't so tired while reading it, but I found Egyptian Heart to be very tedious. There wasn't much to the book. Also, it bothered me how Maggie kept wanting to return home despite her love for Ramose. Perhaps I will go at the book another time in the far future.

    I really liked it. The ending was great, it made me smile just reading it. I did not see it coming and yet, i did. It was that sort of "familiar stranger", that predictably unexpected ending, mixed with Meyer's je n'essay quoi that makes this book worth reading.
