About the Author
Hannah Fielding was born and grew up in Alexandria, Egypt, the granddaughter of Esther Fanous, a revolutionary feminist and writer in Egypt during the early 1900s. Upon graduating with a BA in French literature from Alexandria University she travelled extensively throughout Europe and lived in Switzerland, France and England. After marrying her English husband, she settled in Kent and subsequently had little time for writing while bringing up two children, looking after dogs and horses, and running her own business renovating rundown cottages. Hannah now divides her time between her homes in England, Ireland and the South of France. She has written five novels, Indiscretion,Masquerade, Legacy (the Andalucían Nights Trilogy), Burning Embers, and The Echoes of Love. Hannah’s books have won various awards including, Gold Medal for romance at the Independent Publisher Book Awards (The Echoes of Love), and Gold and Silver Medals for romance at the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards (Indiscretion and Masquerade). Indiscretion has also won Best Romance at the USA Best Book Awards.

Even better, she is now gathering material for her third novel, and after a visit to England by her estranged father, she decides to leave the security of her aunts country estate and travel to Spain to meet her family she had not seen since she was a child.
So begins a long journey of discovery, not only to know her family, but to know Spain and its old-world culture. And especially to begin to know herself, to come to grips with all the feelings that were beginning to stir inside her and she had never given attention to before.
The story builds with great care and suspense. I found myself impatient to come back to this book again and again: Mrs Fielding's descriptions of Spain and its towns and its rolling countryside painted for the reader in such exquisite detail certainly added to that impatience.
Alexandra's father, who in the beginning was so interesting as an important character coming into her life, seemed to dwindle in importance, until I was disappointed in the role he had slipped into before seeming to fade away.
However, the interactions with the rest of the family, her grandmother, her stepmother, her cousins, all of them were intricately laid out to build on the intrigue and suspense, most definitely a highlight of this sprawling story.
Now we come to Salvadore, the almost-perfect man Alexandra has come to love. Again, the story builds and the passion between the lovers heats the pages until the edges curl, but I never seem to feel his pain when they are pulled apart. Only her pain. And because of this, it became a kind of one-dimensional story that left me wondering time and again what was really going on in Salvador's head? Did he really love Alexandra, or did he only love her sometimes? Was he really going through the pain and anguish she was going through every waking hour?
In the end, he proved to be a true hero and an articulate Spanish lover to the heroine we knew Alexandra to be all along. So as I turned the last few pages, I felt vindicated that theirs was a love to last forever.
This book didn’t disappoint. It is set in 1950’s Spain and I immediately connected with Alexandra, the heroine, a writer and a romantic who travels to Spain to discover her estranged family. Her trip is a long journey of discovery, not only of her family, of Spain and its flamboyant culture, but also of true love and of her innermost self.
The love story is passionate, and the erotic parts are arousing without being vulgar. The characters are well developed and the hero, although not always transparent and straightforward in his actions, is a man to die for: golden tanned skin with raven black hair and unfathomable blue eyes, commanding but compassionate and passionate... oh so passionate!
The plot is riddled with secrets that threaten to keep the lovers apart, and with twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages and leave you breathless and the end.
However, that is not all. As in her two other books, Ms Fielding’s descriptions in Indiscretion are second to none. I have never been to Spain, but by the end of the book I felt I'd seen its exotic countryside, experienced its passionate culture and met its wonderful warm people. If you have never read a book by Hannah Fielding and if you are a fan of description that transports you to another world, then don’t look further... Indiscretion is a most memorable read and Hannah Fielding has pulled it off again.
