Kindle Store > Books > Fiction > Romance > Historical Romance
Indie Writer (Self-published)


Dashing and dangerous Andre Raveneau is the Revolutionary War's most reckless privateer captain when Devon Lindsay stows away aboard his ship after her Connecticut town has been burned by the British. Raveneau sardonically agrees to deliver her to her childhood sweetheart in Virginia but doesn't count on his own potent attraction to the enchanting, courageous Devon.

Through high adventure, swashbuckling sea battles, and the colourful history of America's revolution, the couple battles the fiery passion that binds them together.

Other books in the series:

The Raveneau Novels* and The Beauvisage Novels intertwine, with some characters crossing over. Should you wish to read them in chronological order, this is the sequence:
1793 - SPRING FIRES (A Beauvisage/Raveneau Novel)
1814 - NATALYA
1818 - SILVER SEA* (A Raveneau/Beauvisage Novel)
1903 - TEMPEST*

*SILVER STORM was revised in December, 2012, and all reviews posted before that date which refer to the hero's unforgivable behaviour are inaccurate.

Actually, I loved it.

The dangerous sparks that flew between Andre and Devon, all brought about by chemistry.

Admittedly, he was a bit of a bounder, but then again Devon seemed to behave just as badly.  Possibly should could be forgiven just a bit of that, as she was so young and had been through quite a bit. 

Lovely twist towards the end when she finds out about how her Mother died (no point asking, I'm not giving you a spoiler!).  It's amazing that what you think you want, and what you end up with are sometimes wildly disparate.

All in all a great read with a lovely swash-buckling hero and highly recommended if pirates, or indeed love and romance are your thing.

I've put the other books in the two inter-twining series (see above) on my "To Read" List over at Good Reads.


I've given this a bit of thought, and decided to give it 5 stars on Amazon/Good Reads.  It was too good for just 4 - if I could hand out half stars, it would have been a 4.5 rating.
