"In the tenth century BC, the new Queen of Sheba has inherited her father's throne and all its riches at great personal cost. Her realm stretches west across the Red Sea into land wealthy in gold, frankincense, and spices. But now new alliances to the North threaten the trade routes that are the lifeblood of her nation. Solomon, the brash new king of Israel famous for his wealth and wisdom, will not be denied the tribute of the world--or of Sheba's queen. With tensions ready to erupt within her own borders and the future of her nation at stake, the one woman who can match wits with Solomon undertakes the journey of a lifetime in a daring bid to test and win the king"-- Provided by publisher.

This is the first I've ever read of the Queen of Sheba, and I loved her story. This book was very well built up and maintained, but I found the ending to be too abrupt and missing all of the details the earlier story showed.

A moving and poetic story of Bilqis, Queen of Sheba. Tosca Lee has quickly become one of my favorite authors!
