“Poor Cousin Helena,” he whispered. “How much we depend on you, and how much I have taken you for granted.”
Helena said nothing. She felt frozen to the spot; his fingers burned her bare skin with a kind of cold fire. She stared into his eyes as the seconds ticked by. Helena dared not move. She suppressed an irresistible and overwhelming urge to reach up and kiss him. His firm lips, the tiny nick where his razor had cut his chin, the harsh lines around his mouth, his dark eyebrows now drawn together in a bewildered frown… He looked as if he, too, did not understand what was happening.
Helena’s heart thumped with loud, slow beats that she was sure were audible in the silent library.
“Helena.” His voice was hoarse.
He lifted one hand and stroked the side of her face, and then he placed his fingers under her chin and tilted it upwards. It was inevitable that they would kiss, and it would be the worst thing in the world. She was leaving Rotherham Park. Rotherham would more than likely offer for Miss Fanshawe. Yet, as if in the power of some spell or enchantment, she was reaching up for his kiss, already longing for the touch of his lips against hers…
The Secret of the Sacred Scarab by Fiona Ingram is one of the books that literally took me on a roller coaster ride. I must say this is absolute read for kids as well as adults. Not many books like these are written these days. Kids would love them and I say this because my daughter who is not much of a reader loved it and made me read it to her every night. This book has been sitting on my computer for a while but I couldn’t read it since last few months. It was really getting me difficult to put my mind to reading after my dad passed away in March.
Then again when I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down. Adam and Justin Sinclair are two cousins who get to visit Egypt with their Aunt. Egypt, the land of adventures unfolds yet another adventure for them and suddenly they are in the middle of a huge mystery. The story is about how these two young kids solve it. The details are amazingly written by the author Fiona Ingram. I could see the whole story running in my mind while reading this book.
Very enchanting and capturing book. I totally enjoyed it.
