Suffering from a cruel heartbreak, Lord Philip Hamilton has been driven to seek refuge from the painful memories haunting London, and his father’s Jamaican sugar cane plantation provides just the escape he needs. Philip finds solace in his hard work and takes comfort in the fact that his distance from society ensures that his heart will be protected from future entanglements.

Protected, that is, until the unexpected appearance of a mysterious woman with no memory of her past. The only clue to her identity is a necklace inscribed with a name: Anna. In a matter of weeks, this gentle, intelligent, and impossibly beautiful stranger turns Philip’s world upside down.

But as the bond between the pair grows, the threat of Philip losing his heart once more is only the beginning of the dangers that await.

    Another fabulous book from Jennifer Moore! This one is loosely tied to the others, but certainly stands on its own. I loved the setting of Jamaica — so different from other novels set in this time period. I loved Anna and Phillip — they both changed and grew a lot as the story progressed. The other characters were fantastic as well. Slavery is a tough issue and I thought the author did a good job of handling it in this setting. Loved it!

  2. A little slow to start but what an adventure! I was glad that the story began with a bit about Anna from before she lost her memory so I felt like I knew her even though she didn’t know herself. The author did a wonderful job of revealing further attributes of her character through the situations and difficulties she faced on Jamaica. Phillip did not make a good first impression on me but he also had some refining experiences at the plantation which made the strength and goodness of his personality shine. The setting is one that is unique in my reading experience and I felt that I learned some history of the time, how plantations were run, the sad reality of slave labor and the perceptions held by society in Jamaica during the period. There are several friends that Anna and Phillip make which give great dimension to the story. Ezekiel, the young black boy who serves in the household is my favorite, he is just one to make you smile 🙂 The danger and action that takes place in the latter part of the novel is well placed and makes the ending an exciting one. The romance between Phillip and Anna lacked tension but was sweet, especially as they came to rely on each other. I especially enjoyed when Phillip would surprise Anna by asking her opinion on a weighty matter and value the perspective she offered.

    Fun, Engaging book. I agree with another reviewer that the beginning was a little slow, but it was definitely worth sticking through it. Ms. Moore did a beautiful job of giving us (the reader) an adventure with characters that are both a little flawed and likable. Well Done! I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.
