The Greek Fisherman's Catch by Patricia Catacalos is a historical romance for readers who enjoy intelligently plotted novels with strong characters. Set in Greece in 1853, Taki wants nothing but revenge for the rape of his mother. It has been twenty-nine years since a Turkish general and his English counterparts raped his mother and over the years he has been on the lookout for the two men. A unique opportunity presents itself in the form of a stranger. The girl visiting Greece happens to be the Englishman's daughter and Taki intends to use her to get to the father. But there is a huge problem: he is in love with Natalie. Can he hurt the father of the woman he is deeply in love with?

I love stories that grip my heart and make me care about the characters and The Greek Fisherman's Catch is one of those stories. Taki is a genuinely flawed protagonist, a man with an honest grudge and a strong sense of justice. His pain at the inhumane treatment his mother received is real, but then the one person who is supposed to be a means of achieving his goal becomes an obstacle. The suspense is strong and the unpredictable plot twist makes for an enjoyable read. Patricia Catacalos weaves relevant historical elements into the narrative and speaks in a voice that is clear and captivating. From the beautiful prose, the exciting plot elements, and the gorgeous characters, the author comes across as an expert storyteller. This book is a wonderful romance read.
