Keeper of the Rings
Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on July 12, 2011
Keeper of the Rings, my science fiction romance originally published as Nancy Cane by Dorchester, is now available for the Kindle for only $2.99!
Here’s the story blurb:
Indiana Jones meets Star Wars!
A beautiful archaeologist and her mysterious protector search for a stolen sacred artifact.
Taurin is shrouded in black when Leena first meets him, his face shaded like the night. At first she believes him to be a simple farmer, but the man exhibits skills worthy of a warrior. With his commanding presence, he’s an obvious choice to be the lovely archaeologist’s protector on her quest for a stolen sacred artifact. Curious about his mysterious background, and increasingly tempted by his tantalizing touch, Leena prays their perilous journey will be a success. She must find the missing relic, or dangerous secrets will be revealed that may forever change her world.

I’m so happy to bring this romantic story to you in digital format. It combines my love of Indiana Jones adventure films with Star Wars in that my heroine is an archaeologist in search of a missing artifact, while the hero—unknown to her—comes from another planet. Suspicious allies, deceitful diplomats, and booby-trapped temples abound in this exciting story.
Inspiration for this story came from a What If question: What if we were devout followers of a faith, and our beliefs were proven to be wrong? Would we be better off not knowing, clinging to our traditions and the belief system that sustains us? Or should we learn the truth? How would you react if everything you knew about your world was shown to be invalid?
In Keeper of the Rings, Taurin knows the truth, but he fears that telling Leena will make him lose her love forever.
To celebrate the digital release of Keeper of the Rings, I’ll give away two free copies of the Kindle edition. A drawing will be held from all my blog commenters between July 12 to July 28. Winner announced at the end of the month.
