For once, Dr. Aaron Prentiss's life is coming together. The arrival of a perfectly preserved mummy in his lab guarantees him tenure and a gorgeous woman is showing interest in him. Still, something seems out of place, mainly his mummy. Aaron doesn't
believe in curses, but even he has his suspicions.
For Adriel, the time to convince Aaron that curses exist is short. Once every hundred years she gets a three day window to try and break free of her mummified body. She knows that Dr. Prentiss can solve the mystery, but can she convince him before time runs out?
Anthropologist Aaron Prentiss is charged with the task of examining a perfectly preserved Chilean mummy. A successful paper on her will guarantee his position in the scientific community and tenure, but when his friend Matt tries to give him a break from work, Aaron meets the woman of his dreams.
Cursed after death with eternal life as a mummy, Adriel has one chance every hundred years to find her soulmate and end the curse. Aaron is that man and he just may be the one to free her.
There was a lot I liked about Under Wraps. Aaron is very open-minded, stumbling upon the curse and willing to believe Adriel's story. Adriel came across a little more modern than I'd expect a ancient Chilean to be, which did bother me throughout the book. Otherwise a well written, steamy paranormal I think you'll enjoy.
