After three thousand years as a mummy, Dawn awakened to a dangerous new reality where science and the supernatural collide. Her only ally is Jake Maxwell, a mysterious grad student with an unusual talent for evading bad guys. Dawn’s resurrection spells trouble and power for the scientists responsible, and they have no intention of letting her go without a fight. But as she flees with Jake, a shocking revelation about her newfound life rocks them both. While their enemies close in, they discover a fiery passion — and a bond deeper and stronger than time itself. But can they outrun the past before their future is shattered?

 

Review: This is the continuation of Reborn to Die.  Not only do Jake and Dawn have the company that brought Dawn back to life after them but they have a new threat. They have someone that wants Dawn for her brain. They need to know how she was able to come back after 3000 years.

I was a bit hazy on where things take place the description of things wasn’t as clear at times. But, I tended to overlook that as the suspense and the connection between Jake and Dawn.  There is an element that they have a connection from their previous lives that becomes more apparent as the story develops.

Ms. Durand in a short amount of time has once again filled the pages with more romance and suspense. She has developed the relationship between the two main characters giving them more of a bond, heating things up and having them realize how they feel for each other. They have something stronger than just the chemistry. There is something else pulling them together. Things are starting to come together but still no answer or hint of one.

This is another quick lunchtime read. It’s not a bad story but it might be best to pick up the first in this series. With it being so short doesn’t leave much room for revelations.
