ABOUT THE BOOK
Miss Diane Snow is everything a British chaperone should be—she finds satisfaction in order and depends wholly upon the rules of decorum as she negotiates the isle of Greece with her young charge. But Miss Snow's prim and proper exterior masks a disquieting past: orphaned and alone in the world, she has only her stiff upper lip to rely on. When a brief encounter with a handsome stranger challenges her rules of propriety, Diana is unwittingly drawn into an adventure that will turn her ordered world upside down.
Alexandros Metaxas is a Greek spy working to recruit individuals to the cause of revolution. His mission seems to be going perfectly until he encounters Diana Snow, a captivating—if slightly cold—beauty. When their paths cross again, the ill-fated reunion threatens all Alex has been fighting for. But more importantly, it places Diana's life in jeopardy. There is only one way to save her: they must put themselves at the mercy of the most powerful pirate family in the Mediterranean. Soon, Diana is plunged into a fantastic world of gypsy curses, blood feuds, and unexpected romance. But when a bitter vendetta places her in mortal danger, will she have the courage to fight for life and love?
Jennifer Moore has a gift for writing a book that isn't too long and yet contains a great deal of content. Her characters are always likable, though flawed and the situations they find themselves in are fascinating. I love the way she depicts the time periods and places. It's clear that she puts a lot of time and energy into getting it write, which I love in historical fiction. The setting and circumstances of this particular book were entirely unfamiliar to me, maybe that's why I found it so intriguing. I mean a Greek spy who is fighting for freedom for his homeland meeting up with a structured, controlled English chaperone. What a great story. I loved everything about this one, the characters, the setting, and the plot. I even learned things about a time and place I knew very little about. What a great combination of features for a regency romance.
