--excerpt from Lost Treasures He sank against the wall, horror eating into his bones. "She went to the market after you left this morning. I tried to persuade her to wait until you returned, but she can be...so stubborn," her voice weakened. "I can't bear to think of her fate if she is in the hands of D'zhon." "I'll find her," Taran said grimly. "Take this." A small object rolled through a crack between the blocks into the palm of his hand. "I put her in your care." "Taran?" she panted as life drained out of her. "Yes?" he answered tenderly. "Promise me you will take care of her." "I will," he rashly vowed, his voice rasping in his throat. "She belongs to you."
A tale of captivating adventure which takes place in the deserts and jungles of India, Lost Treasures swifts the reader through camel chases, scorpion pits, sand storms, and encounters with those who would harm Cha'fara, the princess heroine. Taran, a Christian rendering of Indiana Jones, disregards his own life again and again in his loyalty to fulfill a promise made to a dying woman--to protect her daughter. However, Cha'fara, young and proud, is not so keen on Taran's assistance and causes more than one set of problems for the adventurer turned preacher. Near misses, which can only be classified as miracles straight from the caring hand of the Almighty, fill this novel with spine tingling escapades. However, once the characters reach safety another battle begins. These new battles are spiritual ones that take place in the churches of metropolitan America. Battles so intense that Cha'fara longs for the peace of the treacherous Indian desert. Can this unlikely couple find love through the myriad obstacles? Lost Treasures is a fun, quick read that will carry the reader away to a distant savage land only to bring her back for a dose of the diseases that affect many American Christians--greed, power, and jealousy.
