And the last thing she needs is for him to wake up.   As the young archaeologist delves into Druidic rituals to grasp why Quintus was offered to a Welsh bog and then resurrected, she is forced to complete her research with the "missing" body, dodge her ex-lover and mentor with his own agenda, and keep her gorgeous new houseguest under wraps.   But, smitten with her as he seems, Quintus says he wants to go home.   Asenath is drawn to Quintus by the secrets they share, even if it scares her. As Asenath is pulled deeper into the mysteries of the bog, she must risk everything to keep him from hell's cold grasp as she uncovers forbidden rites, awakened deities, and an attraction that transcends the ages.

    Like the legendary Rose of Jericho, some people survive in the harshest of proverbial deserts without knowing how much they can bloom in the right oasis. Set against the backdrop of the Iraqi war, Nora and John crossed paths as compassionate fighters for the weak and downtrodden. Both estranged from their faiths, they yearned for more grounding in the world they found themselves in. 
     
    Later reunited in the United States, the radicalization of Nora's nephew Ismael led to a covert operation to save him. In the process, John and Nora found themselves in love and at odds with faiths and traditions that spanned more than a thousand years. 
     
    	Their love now grounded, John and Nora became a political force in the United States. Their message of tolerance, epitomized by their union, galvanized an already electric movement in the United States to foster inclusion and acceptance. Nora found herself at the forefront of the movement when she created a platform that gave a voice to women in Islam. 
     
    	Nora's courage in striking a balance between tradition and the present sowed the seeds of courage in her aunt Dounia, who found it in herself to accept the love of Dr. Barzani. All seemed well, with Nora and Dounia heading an operation to save priceless art pieces that had been taken during the Iraq War.
     
    	Nora's vision of the future was shattered by a revelation: a mysterious benefactor was closer to her than she realized. The secret threatened to unravel Nora and the tight threads she'd woven with the people she loved. Nora would have to find the courage to face that secret and reconcile with a past that she had not yet come to terms with. Perhaps then the Rose of Jericho, Nora, would bloom at last.
