Editorial Reviews

Gossamer Obessions
Some books, some blessed books, grab you with the first page, with language so lyrical and hooked you're excited to keep reading even before you're entirely sure what you're reading, with settings so vivid and intricately described, yet never so vivid and intricately described as the characters.

Indiscreet is one of them. It has the plot of an Italian opera, the theme of a fairy tale, and a writing style as rich, textured and gorgeous as only romances can be.
ReaderToReader.com - Joyce Greenfield
Indiscreet has the perfect balance of intrigue, action, romance and desire to keep the reader hooked from page one to conclusion. Readers will find themselves rooting for Foye and Sabine and hopeful that they can overcome the odds to find the true love they each so deserve. Indiscreet is deliciously sensual and suspenseful in turn, a perfect formula for a wonderful romance novel.
Fresh Fiction - Leanne Davis
Ms. Jewel has written a wonderfully emotional story. The characters are interesting and engaging. Their pasts have formed them as they are in this book. The story is packed with adventure and danger. Over every other emotion, the reader will experience the depth of the love between Edward and Sabine. This is one of the best books I've read all year. I would highly recommend it to others.
DearAuthor.com - Dear Author
For the reader who wants fresh settings, for the reader who likes traditional Regencies, for the reader who likes character-driven stories, and for the reader who likes adventure and a larger scope in Romance, Indiscreet is a wonderfully satisfying read.

There is such a smoothness to the language here and yet it doesn't call attention to itself because it directs all of our attention to the characters and what they are feeling. The result is some powerful emotion in the reader.
Babbling About Books - Kate Barrabrant
Indiscreet is a beautifully written, almost epic type romance. The exotic setting adds to the luscious story between these two stoic and breathtaking characters. Edward, at first, comes across as cold and a bit egotistical. Sabine is shown as a woman who seems so lost because of a false indiscretion that has almost ruined her life. When these two enter each other's world, they are changed forever.

    entertaining historical

    In 1811 Miss Sabine Godard accompanies her elderly uncle as he journeys to the Far East to research information on a book he is writing. At a gala, Sabine meets the Marquis of Foye; whose friend ruined her reputation; which led to her vow to never marry. On the other hand he must marry now that his brother died without an heir. They both feel a major surge of desire, but neither wants to pursue their feelings out of fear where it will lead.

    Still Sabine and Foye become friends as their attraction intensifies. He becomes frightened for her when a pasha invites the uncle and his niece to the palace; Foye fears the pasha's agenda is to temporarily add her to his harem before selling her.

    The fun in this entertaining historical is the British expatriates with a recent history meeting and falling in love in the early nineteenth century Ottoman Empire. Thus, the Regency romance is transported to Turkey. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the scandalized spinster Sabine and foolishly Foye meet as he knows what happened to her back home. INDISCREET is a jewel of a historical as the background enhances the shaky but loving relationship between the lead couple.

    INDISCREET is exactly my kind of historical. Reminiscent of the meticulous writing of Carla Kelly, the plot features Sabine Godard,
     and Edward, Marquess of Foye, two emotionally fractured British subjects travelling in Turkey and Syria, drawn together by entwined
    tragedies in their pasts. Romance and adventure are certainly central to this novel, but Jewel's fine hand at creating a sense of place,
    and her clear knowledge of the social structure, political intrigues, and geography of the region truly bring this story to life.

    Adventure and romance!

    This book was a real page turner. I will look at more from this author! It had a beauty and the beast theme to it (which is my favorite). I would not recommend this to a young reader. It has some very graphic sex scenes in it, yet this does not take away from the story.
