Release Date: September 1, 2016
Miss Diana 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?
I grow to love Jennifer Moore’s writing more with each of her books that I read. Her well researched historical fiction is very intriguing to me. I knew very little about the struggles the people of Greece faced in the early 1800s before reading this. I was excited to learn in some author notes at the end of the book that some of the characters in the book were real people from history. Diana and Alex are strong characters that I was immediately drawn to. The relationships that they formed with the people in Greece were strong and fulfilling. I enjoyed watching them share their talents and learn how to open up and be vulnerable. I was impressed by how the importance of education is woven throughout the story. I am looking forward to more by Jennifer Moore!
