Book Description

Someone has been stealing priceless Greek artifacts and it's Alex Leonidis' job to uncover the thief. His prime suspect is beautiful archaeological graduate student, Francie Vasileiou. His plan is to join in an archaeological dig and catch her in the act. All he has to do is keep his mind on his job, and not on the way his lovely suspect warms his heart. He's learned the hard way not to trust fragile-looking women who seem to need his help.

Francie wants to get her PhD and become an archaeologist, like her famous father. The sudden invitation to participate in a dig on the beautiful Greek island of Paros is a wonderful opportunity. She has no time for distractions like Alex, the handsome Project Director. Experience has taught her to stay clear of handsome, charismatic Greek men.

On the shores of the Aegean Sea, Alex and Francie work togeth-er, searching for treasures from Greece's past. While pursuing their goals, they discover some of the truths they had believed to be carved in stone may have been flawed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great details! February 6, 2012
By KVD
Format:Kindle Edition
He's searching for thief. She's the main suspect. On an archeological camp one will look for evidence, the other will look for ancient artifacts, but they both end up finding love.

Francie's first love is finding historical treasures, until she meets Alex. The initial reservations she has towards him melt faster than ice, but she is confused by strange happenings at the work site and she's afraid things are not all the seem to be. Alex is falling for the suspect, going against everything he's learned in the world of a private investigator. What they both find is not at all what either expected.

Ms. Kiyono is masterfully skilled at exposing her reader to a subject like archeology and giving accurate details on the subject while weaving a storyline so intricate that the combination is seamless.
Aegean Intrigue is full of twists, mystery, gripping detail, and a great romance in the mix.

Ms. Kiyono provided me with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing new book by my favorite author February 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Patricia Kiyono is a fascinating writer, taking us to exciting new worlds and giving us new ways of seeing our own. Her writing is strong and flowing. Her subject matter is unique, her characters wonderful. This is not the first book I've read by Patricia and I was as delighted with this one as with the others. She's an excellent writer with a great imagination.

3.0 out of 5 stars Run-of-the-Mill Romance, Not Memorable July 11, 2012
By anaavu
Format:Kindle Edition
Originally posted on my blog: [...]

Some nice twists at the end, but overall, an average, run-of-the-mill romance. Nothing all that special unless you're looking for a very short, quick romance you can read in one sitting. But with those specifications, A Time For Ryda might be a better bet. The book is vaguely interesting, but it's very forgettable. Even now, I can't recall many of the details... crap, who was the main character again?

With not much to say about the book, I decided why not do something interesting while we're at it? Thus was born our character interview. Come back soon to our blog read it (it's going to be our first!).

I received a complimentary copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Romance in a Great Locale February 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A beautiful Greek island, a handsome but untrusting hero, a lovely but disillusioned young heroine. In Aegean Intrigue, Patricia Kiyono takes elements that could have been totally predictable and crafts a memorable story of romantic suspense.

The characters are cleverly written. Both Alex and Francie have back stories that make them leery of trusting the honesty of the opposite sex, and when they are attracted to each other, they start second-guessing themselves. Add to the mix the fact that Alex is involved in a deception. He's an investigator passing himself off as the project manager of the archaeological dig where Francie is working, and SHE is his prime suspect! Not the most fertile ground for building a trusting relationship is it?

However, the romantic tension between Francie and Alex is very well done. It's handled in a wonderful way that is neither so saccharine as to be unbelievable nor so steamy that it overpowers the story. Ms. Kiyono lets the story unfold in delightful way that will keep you reading to the end.

I've read Ms. Kiyono's other stories (The Legacy and The Christmas Phoenix) and enjoyed them. THis is another keeper for my bookshelf. I hope to read more by this very talented author in the near future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mystery and Romance March 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
'Francie Vasileiou is a graduate student working on her PhD in archaeology in beautiful, culture-rich Greece. Raised by a famous archaeologist father and a famous actress mother, her life was anything but average. In spite of her mother's plans for her future, she chose a life as an archaeologist-- her true passion. Unfortunately, on every dig she is involved with, priceless artifacts have disappeared without explanation, leaving a dark cloud of suspicion on her integrity.

Enter Alex Leonidis, a tall handsome private investigator, hired by a wealthy man with interests in the latest dig site. His objective: to observe Francie closely in order to prove her involvement in the missing artifacts. His plan: to go undercover as a Project Director of the dig site. Alex observed her closely all right -- drawn inexplicably to her beauty, her passion and her work ethic. He has a difficult time keeping his mind on his primary objective.

But artifacts are still disappearing. Is Francie the culprit? Or is it one of the other crew members -- the old, absent-minded professor, the seemingly inept newbie who is always checking his phone, the crew cook? And what will happen when she finds out he's been lying to her about who he really is?

This story is one of those whose plot is so engaging you are drawn immediately in. It's difficult not to want more when it's so good but it ends so soon. As a short story, it can't be judged by the same criteria as a full-length novel (though a longer format would have given the room to flesh out all the details of this amazing story).
