Book Description

Dec 1 1988
At twenty-five, Princess Adrianne lives a life most people would envy.  Beautiful and elegant, she spends her days dabbling in charities and her nights floating from one glamorous gala to the next.  But her pampered-rich-girl pose is a ruse, a carefully calculated effort to hide a dangerous truth.

For ten years Adrianne has lived for revenge.  As a child, she could only watch the cruelty hidden behind the facade of her parents' fairy-tale marriage.  Now
she has the perfect plan to make her famous father pay.  She will take possession 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.  Clever, charming, and enigmatic, Philip Chamberlain has his own private reasons for getting close to Princess Adrianne.  And only when it's too late will she see the hidden danger...as she finds herself up against two formidable men--one with the knowledge to take her freedom, the other with the power to take her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story!!! March 2 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love this story! I disagree to some reviewers who find it boring and thinks that only a true Nora Roberts' fan will give it a 4 or 5 star. I have no idea who is Nora Roberts before I read this book. I happened to picked this book up in the library and read the summery behind the paper back. And I decided to borrow it. And was I amazed! I got so adicted to the story and the characters that I could not put the book down. I never finish a story book within a day. And I did for this one. I wish this book could be make into a movie. It will be interesting. Recently, I just watched this movie "The Sleeping Dictionary" and the leads, Hugh Dancy & Jessica Alba remind me of the Princess Adrianne & Phillip in "Sweet Revenge". I think Jessica Alba will make a stunning Princess Adrianne and Hugh Dancy will look great as the handsome English man, Phillip. Anyway, this is kind of out of topic. I highly recommend "Sweet Revenge" to non Nora Roberts' fan and those who are her fans and haven't got the chance to read it. You will love it!

Adrianne, A down to earth woman, who happens to be a Princess turn thief. Phillip, A thief turn private investigator. Beautiful Locations around the world. Action and Adventure, in Adrianne's double life as a thief at night, princess in the day. There are so many things, that I like about this book. I like Phillip and Adrianne's street smarts. I like the fact that Phillip is so cool, calm, observing, and confident, without being arrogant and vain. He shows real concern for Adrianne, without being nosy and pushy. I like the fact that Phillip could seperate pleasure from business. His maturity, views, and approach on Love Making was unique. I also like his deep respect for Adrianne, especially when she told him NO, the first time he tried to be intimate with her, to the end, when even He ( Phillip ) had to admit Adrianne was very good as a thief. And, the Love for his mother, was fun to read. His mother, so full of personality, I could see how his caring, thoughtfulness, and respect for women came from. As for Adrianne, I just like how she handle her own business, by staying focus and true to her goals, which was to seek revenge by stealing something precious ( The Sun and The Moon Necklace, which once belong to her Mother. ) from her father, who brutally abused her mother, in more ways than one. I also like that she was Not easily distracted, even the attention she got from Phillip. She was determine to meet her goals, and seek her revenge, which made Phillip more intrique by Adrianne. There is just so many things, that I like about those 2 characters. The Mental Health Center that Adrianne wanted to open, was such an appropriate tribute, to her Mother Phoebe, who had suffer abuse from her father. It just showed how loving and caring, that Adrianne was to her Mother and to others. I highly recommend reading this story, which is truely a believable and a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Revenge ? Sept. 3 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The hardest part of reading this book was the beginning. I hated it and loved it. I hated it because there was such misery for Adrianne's mother, Phoebe Spring and I loved it because it hooked me up with its cruelty. It was also tempting to flip to the back and just find out but I didn't want to ruin the whole thing.
Phoebe Spring, a western woman, lives in Jaquir (a Muslim world), supposedly living in a wonderland with her so called loving husband. But underneath all that *love* is a husband that treats her cruelly. (He beats and rapes her) Her husband Abdu didn't always treat her this way, he used to love her but all that changed when she gave birth to a daughter, Adrianne. After Adrianne, Phoebe could no longer have anymore children and because of that Abdu despised her and treated her very badly.
Phoebe could have left him but she didn't because she wouldn't be able to take Adrianne with her and she loved Adrianne too much to leave her. So Phoebe stuck by and turned to alcohol and drugs to pass her days. Then one day when Abdu told her that he plans to send Adrianne away and then Phoebe knew she had to get away. With the help of her friend, Celeste, Phoebe was able to runaway with her daughter to New York. In New York she was able to get a divorce but her life still went down hill. Before Phoebe met Abdu, she was an actress and a very good one. In New York, she contacted her agent to try to get some acting parts. But instead Phoebe got played because during her time in Jaquir she was left totally battered and now she's too weak to make the right choices. She totally depended on drugs and alcohol and in the end she died because of her depression and inner demons.
Adrianne on the other hand was opposite of her mother.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT the BEST but still good March 6 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sweet Revenge is pretty different from other Nora Roberts' works due to the fact that part of the story took place at Jaquir, a Middle-east country.
The story began with the marriage between Jaquir's King, Abdu, and a famous American actress, Phoebe. But the love between these two was not longlasting. Abdu treated Phoebe with so much cruelty that their only daughter, Princess Adrianne, suffered from nightmares even when she was in her twenties. For both she and her daughter's own good, Phoebe decided to bring Adrianne and try to escape from Abdu's clutches.
With the help of Phoebe's best friend, they escaped to America. Adrianne was only eight then but she never forgot the cruelty her father shown to her and her mother. She grew up with revenge in her mind, that is, to steal his most precious jewel, the Sun and the Moon. This piece was given to her mother with love from her father. But out of hatred, her father took it back.
Most characters in this book this book are very likeable. Adrianne was a very determined young lady but I don't understand how she could polish up her stealing skills with no guidance at all and these skills of hers were really superb. Philip was not like any other hero. He was a romantic, supported Adrianne when she was down and he was not stubborn. What was most attractive about Philip was: He loved his mother! Phoebe was a very sad character, maybe because of her fate. But her great love for Adrianne and the determination to protect her were really admirable. For Abdu, I have only one word to describe him: HATEFUL. There are many other loveable characters such as Celeste, Phoebe's best friend; Adrianne's grandmother; Adrianne's brother...
I think that this book came alive from the part when Philip and Adrianne met. I'm sure those of you who want to read this book will like it, but you have to bear with a few boring parts.
