Really great book. Good characters-better understanding of the world of Islam--but not overboard with the information. Could not put it down for very long before I picked it up again.

Fun jewel-thief romp/romance, with (as usual) strong female heroine, dashing love interest, and interesting minor characters.

This book first came off to me as hard hitting.
But basically a royal princess is intent on stealing a priceless necklace that she believes rightfully belongs to her mother. Though her mother is dead, she is stealing the necklace on the matter of principle due to her father, the king/sultan, taking away the gem and all her mother's divorce from him. She is a Robin Hood of sorts who has been robbing jewelry since the tender age of 16 or 15. Since she is an estranged princess, no one could believe that the spawn of a Hollywood Starlet and King could be a thief. However, an ex-jewel thief soon catches on. He tags along her, much to her annoyance, and finds out that she is the notorious jewel thief. He sees her side of the story and endeavors to help her steal back the gem. The writing was excellent and there was so much plot, which I adore!

This was an enjoyable story. Good, strong female lead, and an unexpectedly balanced view of religion and culture.

If you like Nora Roberts, you will enjoy this book. This is one of her earlier novels, but it is as well written as any of her later ones. What happens when two of the very best jewel thieves, one retired and working for Interpol, the other with one more heist to pull off, get together? Sparks fly, romance delevops and revenge is sweet!!

Now she has the perfect plan to make her famous father pay. She will take posession of the one thing he values above all others-The Sun and the Moon, a fabled necklace beyond price.

Yet just as she is poised to take her vengeance, she meets a man who seems to divine her every secret.

On the surface Princess Adrianne seems to have everything a rich girl could want and even those close to her don't know the truth. They don't know what she endured as a child in the country of her birth, or the fact that she is now an international thief. She remembers all too well the cruelty her mother endured at the hands of her famous father and she wants to avenge that brutality. She's had many years to plan her revenge and has figured out the worst possible way to hurt her father: she plans on stealing a priceless necklace that he worships. On the way to extract her retaliation she meets a man who could ruin her carefully laid out plans. Phillips Chamberlain has his own agenda and Adrianne is part of them, only she doesn't realize it.

When the two meet her father, everything changes. Each of them still wants the necklace but they didn't expect to fall in love with each other along the way. Nor did they plan on the King, Adrianne's father, providing them with a marriage ceremony.

The demand for Nora Roberts is getting stronger all the time, and the impressive performance of "Sweet Revenge" proves the point. In one of her most satisfying novels, she introduces readers to the daughter of a Hollywood starlet and a charming playboy whose rich-girl pose masked the cruelty behind her parents' fairy-tale marriage. And now, though nothing will bring her mother back, she is ready to make her father pay.
