I’m really excited to share this with you. This is my debut novel, and as any of you would understand I’m ecstatic! Props to my CP’s, Darci Cole and my Dad who read through this for me and helped me through the editing, and Anabel Gonzalez who jumped in to help me with the next two books. And of course, Curiosity Quills for loving it enough to be willing to publish it!
Kiya: Hope of the Pharaoh is set during the late 18th Egyptian dynasty during the reign of Akhenaten. When Akhenaten sees none of his wives have given him a son and heir, he sends for a virtuous woman, a Hebrew woman, and he is brought Naomi.
Naomi, the oldest of four sisters, was raised and educated alongside her older brother. She knows the Egyptian language, understands politics etc. So when the Egyptians come and try to take her sisters, she intervenes and convinces the Egyptian nobleman, Horemheb, that because of her education she would be far more beneficial to take as a wife and Queen of Egypt.
But, Horemheb’s intentions for this new wife are more than just giving the Pharaoh an heir. He wants to use her to remove the Great Queen Nefertiti from her position of power by ensuring Naomi – who has her name changed to Kiya to hide her Hebrew lineage – makes the Pharaoh fall in love with her. But Nefertiti is determined to stay on top and keep the crown in her family, and will stop at nothing to get her way.
Naomi finds herself in a constant struggle to stay on top and keep herself and the people she loves alive. If she can just survive and give the Pharaoh a son before his ailing health overcomes him, maybe she could be free again, and be able to marry the handsome Hebrew guard who is her only light in such a dark and deadly place.
