I like that the heroine is not a beauty but a woman of substance. She still has much to learn about life and especially about men. She remembers Portugal as a child and returns to find it not so idyllic as she recalled. There are threats on her life, superstitious servants and a terrifying secret society called The Sons of the Star. She soon realizes that she can trust no one including her family that lives at the Castle on the Rock. Set during the Napoleonic Wars, Juana becomes drawn into spying not only to protect Portugal but the country she left behind and now misses--England. She must choose between two men, as well--the pale, cool Englishman, Gair Varlow, or her passionate Portugese cousin, Vasco de Mascarenhas.
