The Pharaoh's Whore (Hiatus)
Mistresses of rulers are often overlooked, even ridiculed for seemingly only providing their body to their lover, but a mistress can persuade her King with more than just her body, her words can also persuade him into doing her will.
Ife, a young Egyptian girl with the title of Lady Of Isis (a rank arguably as important as a Pharaoh), is Ptolemy XII "Auletes"'s only mistress. As long as she is close to him, nobody can lay a hand on her. Her first two years as his mistress is filled with passion, immense wealth, and love. However, nothing golden can stay.
Her world slowly crumbles as her lover is forced to flee the palace as three assassination attempts on his life fail their goal. To make matters worse, his two eldest daughters, Tryphaena and Bernice declare themselves the rulers of Egypt and denounce their father as a traitor to the crown.
As Ife's secret letters to her lover are discovered, she is thrown into the dreaded dungeon and is sentenced to be executed. She narrowly escapes with the help her allies, Ptolemy's younger daughters, Cleopatra and Arisonë.
She is faced with many trials along the way as she attempts to be reunited with her lover, and being pregnant with his twins only make it more difficult to conceal her identity.
Does love truly conquer all? Or will the only pure thing in the world succumb to the dark side?
