Book Review-Silver Storm (Rakes & Rebels: The Raveneau Family Book 1)-Cynthia Wright

Monday, September 3, 2018

I have always loved novels about Pirates and the strong women who manage to get under their skin!! This historical romance by Cynthis Wright is one of the best I have ever read. It takes place as the colonists are starting to fight for their independence from Britain-a rather dangerous time. But not as dangerous as the Privateer André Raveneau. Devon Lindsey thinks she has just lost her entire family--scared and alone she makes her way to the pier where a sailor decides he is going to take advantage of her plight and gets her aboard André Raveneau's ship.

Andre figures it out and keeps her in his cabin for safe keeping--he really is a gentleman. Of course she has told him she wants to find her fiance who is in Virginia somewhere, which she actually does.

Now Devon is not exactly a prim and proper lady of that time period--she is a fighter!! Does she listen to all of Andre's dictates? Of course not!

I simply loved the way this story progressed-eventually learning why Andre was still single and planned on staying that way--By the way--he was pretty sneaky himself!!

If you, like me, loves to read historical romances with handsome, slightly dangerous men and feisty women--you will find very few better then this one!! I will be reading more of this series--you can place bets on it!!
