In ancient Greece, one of the twelve labours of Heracles was to bring back a golden apple from the Garden of Hesperides. To archaeologist Oriel Anderson, joining a team of Greek divers on the island of Helios seems like the golden apple of her dreams. Yet the dream becomes a nightmare when she meets the devilish owner of the island, Damian Lekkas. In shocked recognition, she is flooded with the memory of a romantic night in a stranger’s arms, six summers ago. A very different man stands before her now, and Oriel senses that the sardonic Greek autocrat is hell-bent on playing a cat and mouse game with her. As they cross swords and passions mount, Oriel is aware that malevolent eyes watch her from the shadows. Dark rumours are whispered about the Lekkas family. What dangers lie in Helios, a bewitching land where ancient rituals are still enacted to appease the gods, young men risk their lives in the treacherous depths of the Ionian Sea, and the volatile earth can erupt at any moment? Will Oriel find the hidden treasures she seeks? Or will Damian’s tragic past catch up with them, threatening to engulf them both? 

Hannah Fielding is an incurable romantic. The seeds for her writing career were sown in early childhood, spent in Egypt, when she came to an agreement with her governess Zula: for each fairy story Zula told, Hannah would invent and relate one of her own. Years later – following a degree in French literature, several years of travelling in Europe, falling in love with an Englishman, the arrival of two beautiful children and a career in property development – Hannah decided after so many years of yearning to write that the time was now. Today, she lives the dream: writing full time at her homes in Kent, England, and the South of France, where she dreams up romances overlooking breath-taking views of the Mediterranean.

To date, Hannah has published five novels: Burning Embers, ‘romance like Hollywood used to make’, set in Kenya; the award-winning Echoes of Love, ‘an epic love story that is beautifully told’ set in Italy; and the Andalucian Nights trilogy (Indiscretion, Masquerade and Legacy), set in sultry Spain.


Hannah has done it again, she wrote a book that got me hooked from the beginning. She created a book of more than 500 pages that feels short for all the emotions it contains. Drama, romance and beautiful scenarios, mix to create one incredible story.

Oriel gets a position in a dream job any other archaeologist would love. Excited by the opportunity she arrives in Greece only to meet Damian Lekkas. An encounter years before still haunts her and the attraction is undeniable. They will have to put their professional priorities before their chemistry even though it is really difficult for them. Their relationship is exciting, intriguing and emotional. It's easy to get lost in the reading and you want more and more of them.

As all books by Hannah, this one is full of drama, secrets, and tension. The past always comes to disturb the present and we have to learn how it affects the characters.

The writing is magnificent, the descriptions are vivid and colorful. It's easy to picture the scenarios and the beauty of it.

If you like romance, this one is a MUST. Another great addition to Hanna's list of excellent books.
