I really would like to give this 3.5 out of 5 stars.

For years I have had a thing for romances that take place on the high seas so this book immediately caught my attention. Somehow I missed that it was a Christian Fiction book which I am always a little leery about because I don't like books that are overly preachy. While this book has a lot of preaching, miracles from God, etc I still found myself enthralled. I finished this book in one day and did not want to put it down until I was done. I felt sorry for Hope as she is being auctioned off as an indentured servant but she quickly lost my sympathy with her attitude. She was a flirt who did not realize how her actions affected others. I had similar feelings with Nathaniel in that I initially was really impressed with his gallantry in rescuing Hope but then he turned me off by being so judgmental. Yes, I did just state that Hope seemed to be an insensitiveflirt but as a Christian one would expect him to withhold judgment on someone he did not truly know.

What held me so captivated was watching the transformation of both Hope and Nathaniel as they both realize their faults and begin to over come them and finally realize that they love one another. The supporting cast was also wonderful. I loved Abigail although I find it almost unreal that someone could be that perfect. My other favorite character was Captain Poole. It was my first time reading about a pirate who honors others marriage vows and is also god fearing.

This was a wonderfully fun read that left me wanting to read more from Tyndall.

I enjoyed reading The Blue Enchantress by M.L. Tyndall, a Christian romance taking place on the open seas. I don't see it as a pirate story, but there is a supporting pirate character which adds a bit of zest.

Captain Nathaniel Mason has been working very hard to build his fleet of ships, having built two by his own hands. It has taken many years of toil and sweat but he is doing well for himself. Against his will, he has had an obsession for Miss Hope Westcott, who has given herself to her gentleman lover who has promised to marry her.

But when Nathaniel sees Hope on an auction block (after she tried to run away with her fiance until she discovered he was already married) he decides to "buy" her and save her from a terrible future with a merchantman, even though it means selling his best ship. He is determined to see her safely home to Charles Towne, but one wave of misfortune after another occurs and one misunderstanding after another is felt, leading to a stormy romance, shipwrecked on an island with some other passengers.

There were unexpected twists in the end which was a nice surprise, so I won't ruin those for anyone.

I thought the characters were mostly realistic. The way people treated Hope was very believable, seeing her as an object of passion rather than as a lady, which is all she really wants to be. Nathaniel sees her the same way and doesn't want to get too close to her, even though he feels so drawn to her and so protective. I did think he should have been a bit blinded by love, not focusing on her flaws and tried to understand her better.

This is not a preachy novel, but it is very Christian with palpable spiritual scenes, forgiveness, saving grace, and God's love.

After finishing "The Red Siren," I couldn't wait to read "The Blue Enchantress." The book opens with action, tension and jaw dropping moments. I was immediately caught up as I found Hope on the verge of being auctioned away as a slave. Mr. Nathaniel Mason just happening along at the exact moment and then hearing Hope actually confess to having an affair with a married man...and that was the first 15 pages! I knew this book was going to be gooooood.

Hotness Factor: 4 stars Red Siren was a little bit hotter to me because I loved the cat and mouse game of those characters but this book was steamy too. Just the nature of the subject added heat to this book. In Christian Historical Fiction, you rarely get to see a story where the woman is throwing herself at almost every man she meets. It just wasn't done in that time period but it is refreshing to see the female being the pursuer and flirt. Also, it is so hot to see how Nathaniel struggles between wanting to give in to her charms and wanting to dump her in the ocean. :)

Series Info: 4 stars This book is the second one in a three book series. I have loved all the books in the series for different reasons. In this one we have Pirate Captains, duels, being marooned on a deserted island - all the classic elements you think of when you think of books about Pirates. I don't recommend reading this book out of order. Hope and Nathaniel are mentioned in book one briefly but you really need Hope's back story that is confessed in Red Siren. You start to realize why she acts the way she does and what she believes about herself.

Overall Rating: 4 stars Hope has had some major issues in her life. She is hurting emotionally but covers it up by being shallow, spoiled and self-centered.
