About the book: 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 LOVE to read these Regency Romances by Jennifer Moore. I love the way that she writes, her characters are always amazing, the plot lines are great and there's plenty of romance in her books.
Diana was a really great character in this book. She doesn't really feel like she belongs in her world. She's a chaperone to her young friend, Molly, but she's an orphan and Molly's peers don't really feel the need to include her or even really be kind to her. I love the way she had courage, one night she wanted to return gloves to Alexandros, but interrupts a very important meeting he's having. Even though she has a knife to her throat, she holds her head high and she doesn't let Alex know just how hurt she was when he refused to acknowledge her.
I loved the way that Diana acts when she's thrown into a completely foreign situation. She works hard and does more than is expected of her, I loved the way she fell in love with the people she was sent to live with and it's very obvious by the care she takes for these people just how much she loved them. And she ends up risking her very life for them in the end.
Alex was a fun character too. He's working to get some of the Greek family groups to help with a revolution. I liked the way that he is constantly trying to make sure that all is well with Diana, because he had caused her to be in the situation that she is in he feels a sense of duty toward her. I liked the way that he eventually learns that it's okay to fall in love and move on with his life, he doesn't always need to be a slave to his past. I guess that both Alex and Diana needed to learn that lesson for different reasons, but they both needed to learn to move on and love in spite of their pasts.
This is a cute book that I didn't want to put down!
