Brandon King, as a cop, should have been able to see the
signs of an abusive relationship, but itís really hard to
see what is going on with yourself.
Now he not only has to face this, but take in the
fact that his lover and partner just wants to keep him on
the side as a hidden secret.
Brandon still does not want to believe he was just a
guilty pleasure to be easily discarded, and when a chance to
get his heartís desire comes his way, Brandon decides to try
and keep his lover.
Christian Carter is the hunkiest archaeologist that Brandon
has ever met.
Brandon needs Christianís help if he is to find the temple
and make it safely into and out of the jungles of India.
Christian eagerly agrees to accompany Brandon on this
quest, but he has more reasons other than wanting to get to
know Brandon better and the thrill of finding the unknown.
These other reasons he is keeping from Brandon for
Brandon quickly finds that Christian is more than he hoped
to find in a lover and finally accepts that his prior
relationship was a mockery of love.
Passion brings out feelings that just might be
forever, when Brandon learns of Christianís other reason for
wanting to be used again, but wanting to give the benefit of
doubt, the journey continues.
Finding the temple and getting inside means danger
and possible, maybe probable, death for both.
The budding love between Brandon and Christian just
might be the key to let them achieve their heartís desire,
if they can trust each other enough.
It is almost impossible to describe all the emotions that
The Lost Temple of Karttikeya makes you feel.
I will say that Brandon had me from the very
beginning and I just wanted to see him find the real love
that seemed to escape him.
Then there was Christian who showed Brandon the
wonder of a real love and relationship.
There were times that I wanted to hug both of them
and then I wanted to turn around and slap them both for
being so stupid.
I watched as Brandon and Christian discovered
passion, found love, and almost lost it, fight for it, and
finally observe just what the miracle of a true heartís
desire can bring.
Ms. Baumbach brought Brandon and Christian not only to life,
but made them people I would love to know.
That alone show the quality of the words and how they
were put together.
When the strength of emotions, which leap off the
pages at you, are considered and added to the mix, there is
very little doubt that I would consider The Lost
Temple of Karttikeya one of the best books I have
read in a while.
