Item description for Trojan Enchantment by Kristina O'Donnelly...
Contemporary Romantic Suspense/Travelogue.
The sights, sounds, scents and flavors of exotic Turkey
Lands of the Morning Series, #5.
Olivia Hayden, 24, mild-mannered librarian from Indianapolis, USA, is a chrysalis eager to be a butterfly. Until now, just about the only aspect of hers fit to be called free-spirited was her riotous, titian hair. On a tour of Turkey to fulfill her late grandfather's dream of visiting ancient Troy, she falls in love with Dr. Somer Berk, 35, a professor of archaeology. Tall, blond, handsome and suave, Berk claims descent from the original Trojans, and is hot on the trail of smugglers dealing in artifacts that harkens to the famous Treasure of King Priam, of the Iliad.
Hayden and Berk take to each other almost immediately, and with events unfolding at the speed of Orient Express on steroids, it seems impossible to deny the destiny that demands fulfillment.
It's the hot, tense, mid-summer of 2005, with terrorists of different agendas, bombing England and Turkey.
Olivia Hayden, American, and Somer Berk, Turk, although bound by relentless physical desire, and the love of Troy and its legacy, find themselves battling separation by culture and outlook on life....

My Enchantment!! Aug 5, 2008
If you want to read beautiful love story with historical backgrounds, you should read it. Kristina O'Donnelly's characters in the book reflect the both (Turkish and American) cultural side so right. Everything perfectly connected with each other. I also enjoyed reading her smooth English.
Exciting adventure in the ancient land of Troy Jul 6, 2006
Kristina O'Donnelly portraits a challanging love between a Turkish Archeology Professor and American Librarian sharing the love of ancient Troy and its legacy in the exotic context of Turkey. The context and unfolding mysterious events totally capture the interest of the reader. Trojan Enchantment also gives valuable insights with regards to Troy. Trojan Enchantment makes you feel the mystery that covers Troy and its legacy.
Lighter than Kristina O'Donnelly's other novels in her series, Lands of the Morning,TROJAN ENCHANTMENT is about love between opposites, in character and upbringing, as it involves a Turkish professor of archaeology, and an American librarian who is an expert on Troy. But also, it is a terrific travelogue, giving us the reader the sights, scents and scenes of exotic Turkey. As an added bonus, there is a lot of good, updated information about Troy, its past and its present, in Canakkale (Gallipoli) in Turkey. Recommended for those who love travel on the cheap, right in their armchair, at home.
