Booklist Review

Jane had every intention of following her mother's mandate that she must never visit her Sicilian relatives, but somehow while on vacation in Europe she finds herself visiting the sunny island. Much to Jane's surprise, the sexy stranger she had been admiring earlier in the day shows up at a dinner party hosted by an old family friend. Jane's mystery man, Lorenzo, turns out to be an actual prince, and he gives her a beautiful gold amulet to mark the beginning of their affair. A misunderstanding sends Jane off to another part of Sicily to stay with her mother's relatives, and there Jane becomes enmeshed in deception and intrigue as she gradually learns more about her mother's family and the strange romantic connection she shares with Lorenzo. Manning beautifully captures the exotic beauty of Sicily and its rich history and fascinating traditions in this captivating tale of love and danger that is perfect for readers who like their romances sexy, suspenseful, and just a bit magical. --John Charles Copyright 2004 Booklist
