When Vivian Kincaid's eyes meet those of a hunky local at the Turkish university her father forces her to attend, it only takes her a split second to recognize her childhood friend. Levent Deniz was the servant boy who taught her to run the streets of Istanbul years before, giving outlet to her wild streak even as a child.

Now face-to-face once again as adults, the only thing standing between them and happiness is her father. The newly appointed Consul General for the United States has other plans for his only daughter. Ones that do not include a former servant, now successful entrepreneur and businessman. He will do everything in his power to keep them apart.

The Diplomat's Daughter is set in 1960s Istanbul and tells the story of pre-destiny, passion and the rebellious power of true love.

When she isn't sweating beer inventory, sales figures or promotional efforts for her latest publication, doing pounds of laundry for her sweaty athletic children, watching La Liga on the Fox Soccer Channel, or trying to figure out what to order in for dinner, she can be found walking her standard poodles or doing Bikram Yoga. Liz loves her Foo Fighters Pandora station, and watching reruns of Deadwood, when there isn't any decent European football on the telly.

Vivan is a woman who decides to fight for what she wants while Levent believes he does not deserve what he wants.  This makes for an interesting combination as we see the story of these childhood friends who discover what true love after becoming reconnected years later.  I went into this story knowing what the ending would be, since this is a prequel to the Turkish Delights series.  What I did not know was how they would get there.  It was wonderful to see bits and pieces of how they became the characters they are later in the series.  Istanbul was really the third main character of this book and added so much to it.   I wish I had read this prequel before having read book one of this series.  Not because there is information in it that you need to know or anything like that.  I just like Viv and Levent a lot more than I did in the first three books of the series.  You can read this without having read any of the rest of the series and it is a complete stand alone, so you are not committing to the whole series by reading it.

After reading the first three books in the series, I was very eager to get the story that would give me a glimpse into the love between the parents - Vivian & Levent. Their story was in one word, beautiful, and sets a perfect example to their children of what true love & acceptance is. Vivan & Levent’s story begins as a childhood friendship before they’re torn apart due to class, culture & circumstance. After the death of her Mother, Vivian moves back to Istanbul, where she reunites with Levent. The friendship they once had is rekindled and they quickly fall in love. Their road is a tough one, filled with many obstacles that they must overcome. However, they are determined fighters and their love is strong, and with each victory, becomes stronger. For me, The Diplomat’s Daughter, is a powerful story of love, acceptance & sacrifice. Vivian & Levent shared a love that was transcendent. They accepted each other without regard to class, status, wealth or culture. Only their love guides the way - each willing to sacrifice their own happiness for the other. It also helped me understand what drives them when dealing with their children in the upcoming books. They want the same love & happiness, that they found, for their children. Another fabulous read by Liz Crowe and a great addition to the Turkish Delights series!
