    Summary

    Ever since he was young, Ezra Fell dreamed of adventure. He dreamed of far off destinations and dashing heroes. He dreamed of danger and excitement. He dreamed of exploration and romance. Now, as an adult, his life is much less exotic locales and much more boring political dinner parties with his fiancé, Gabriel Messenger. But a chance meeting with a literary agent might be his last chance at the adventure he sought as a child.

    Gabriel would surely support him.

    Right?

    And he could never fall for the brash and abrasive Mr. Anthony J. Crowley.

    Right?

    It was just one silly little trip to find a silly little amulet in Egypt.

    Right?
