As Timeless As Stone
by Maeve Alpin

Category: Romance/Fantasy
Description: Though society stands in their way, can love transcend time with the aid of robotics and ritual? In peril for her life, the Priestess Seshat turns herself to stone in ancient Egypt. Centuries later, Ricard, a dashing nineteenth century Frenchman, repairs a broken statue and reads its incantation--unprepared for the gorgeous flesh and blood woman who steps forth. Seshat is drawn to the brass robots Ricard creates and the glamor of the Victorian age, and most of all to Ricard himself. But the society of his day cannot accept a woman like her. How far will Ricard go to secure her happiness? Is their love strong enough to transcend time itself?

"Who are you?" Ricard asked in Old Egyptian as his eyes clung to hers. He steeled his desire to look anywhere else.

I am Seshat, priestess of the temple at Djeba. Beware, my magic is strong and powerful. I will turn you into a beetle if you come near me."

"Djeba? Oui, in Egypt." He took a deep breath as he stood face to face with her. "It is called Edfu now. Napoleon's scientist discovered you there."

"I do not recognize your Hyksos king." As she threw her head back, her black hair flung over her shoulders and she set her hands on her shapely hips. "I only serve the pharaoh."

Ricard's cheeks felt hot from embarrassment as he found himself admiring her body again. "Well, he was an emperor actually, Napoleon, but no longer. He is dead. As are all the pharaohs. They haven't existed for hundreds of years. Our king is Charles the tenth."

"There will always be a pharaoh, Hyksos liar," she spewed at him.

Jean Francois entered holding a bottle and three glasses. "Hyksos liars, are we? Oui, this should help us all get along." He filled all three glasses then handed two to Ricard. "Brandy."
