Author: Mona Risk

Mona Risk never thought that hazardous waste analysis would lead her to writing novels! When her Ph.D. and work in chemistry landed her company some lucrative international contracts to refurbish laboratories, she traveled to more than sixty countries on business or vacation. To relax from her hectic schedule, she avidly read romance novels and mentally plotted her own books. Eventually she left her scientific career to share with readers the many stories brewing in her head.

Now Mona lives in sunny Florid, but she can’t stay long in one place and continues to travel often. She’s lucky to be married to a man who likes traveling even more than she does. They start their packing with a laptop, camera, and Kindle eReader, and then add a few clothes, and go.

Mona’s muse hits her with new ideas when she looks at the ocean or walks on a sandy beach, and she likes to set her stories in the fascinating places she visits, from exotic Belarus and historical France, to the Islands of Greece and Ancient Egypt, in addition to contemporary romances set in Washington, DC., Ohio, and Florida.

Blush sensuality level: This is a sensual romance (may have explicit love scenes, but not erotic in frequency or type).

According to the legend, the evil Egyptian god of storm, Seth, killed his brother Osiris, chopped him into fourteen pieces and flung them all over Egypt. Isis, goddess of family, reassembled thirteen of his body parts. Since she couldn’t find his supernatural male member, where his godly power was stored, she reattached a human one.

Isis has always loved Osiris, the charming god of labor. While dreaming of marriage, family and a son, she helps him fight Seth. Together they struggle to survive iniquities and perils.

His trip to the Afterlife has changed Osiris. He regrets his past womanizing. Guided by oracles she utters when they make love, they search lands and seas for his missing organ so he can recover his godly attributes. Osiris has fallen in love with Isis but the sins of his past and their unexpected consequences threaten to separate them more painfully than Seth's mayhem and curses.
