{Book Details}
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?



{My Review}

I loved this historical, romance book set in Greece. It was very different from other books written by Jennifer Moore,
but It was a fresh and interesting change. I learned many new things about the Greek people and their history.

The story is full of adventure, action and moments of inspiring change and growth in the main characters. It was nice to see a different setting in a book taking place during the early 1800's. This isn't your typical Regency Romance, so don't go into it thinking that and then be disappointed with the author. I really liked the change of scenery and people and felt it was nice to get out of the drawing room and ballrooms of Regency England. I loved getting to know Alex and Diane and see how both of their hearts were changed from their experiences with the people of a small Mediterranean village and from getting to know each other.
