London Harcourt never knew that her brother, father, and even her late husband were major players of the Heirs of Albion. The Heirs do not allow women in their elite group. London always thought they worked for the government in some fashion. Her father, Joseph Edgeworth, has a seat within the inner circle and is planning to subjugate the world's magic to British rule. After her smothering marriage and three years of widowhood, London is thrilled to travel with her father to the Greek isles. She only wishes the horrid men around her father were not accompanying them. London is the only known speaker of a dialect of ancient Greek that holds the key to calling down the wrath of the gods. Of course, London has no idea what it is her father wants her to translate. But then she meets Day.

I LOVE Bennet Day. There, I've said it. How can I not love him? We start the book with him trying to escape a very angry husband. And all the while, Bennet jokes about it. Ben is a libertine, and I have a thing for naughty libertines *grin* (nahh he's not that bad guys don't worry). And most of all I love his sense of humor. I should stop now because seriously I could go on and on and on about how I love this hero.
There is not one page I didn't like in this book. The story is fast paced and I kept being surprised by all the things happening. This is a real adventure book, I felt like a treasure hunter on a mission. It was FAN-TA-STIC! Zoe Archer mix legends and myths with her own world, and the result is gripping. I had a very hard time closing this book.
Ahem...of course I feel I should warn you...the smex is SO HOT it'll melt you down on the spot! lol Our heroine is not a pure little virgin flower, oh no she knows how to have fun lol. The smex was very steamy, there's this one scene in a temple on an altar... O_O *sits on ice* Ok I can't tell you more but seriously this book will help you stay warm throughout the Winter. *g*
The secondary characters are worth mentioning, and it was pretty funny to see Athena and the Captain always arguing.Read more ›
