The bodice ripping days are behind us in romance novels, and I was eager to re-read this book and compare a popular story from the early 80's to romance novels in the present day. I had forgotten much of the story, and as I was reading along I came to the scene where Devon's dress was ripped down to her waist by the marauding British soldier. I thought to myself, "Here it comes." I expected the hero would be a bodice-ripper as well.
But no, Andre is the kind of hero that makes women swoon, even by today's standards. He is drop-dead handsome, quick-thinking, and brave. The plot sets up the situation where there is a lot of arguing between Andre and Devon, for good reasons. She finds him very frustrating and she often believes the worst of him. But she is wrong, he is not a beast, and as the story goes along she learns his is also heroic, kind-hearted, and protective. As I was reading I found their arguing to be so amusing. Both characters are likable and both have good reasons for their position in the disagreements.
Oh yes, the sparks do fly, and I was swept up in the tale. I couldn't put this book down and I read it entirely in one day, even though I had to stay up way past my bedtime to finish it. It was that good! I ate the story up like I was gobbling down bonbons. It didn't dull the story in the least that I had read this before. It was even better this time around, for I now have the years of experience of reading many historical romances and I know a good one when I come across it.
I am putting this author is on my short list of the best romance authors. What fun I am going to have reading each and every one of Cynthia Wright's books!
Five Big Fat Stars!
The story of Devon and Andre Raveneau is a special love story that begins a true family dynasty rich in exceptional story telling of romance, history and swashbuckling adventure. Page after page will keep the lights on long past your bedtime and sorry when you turn the last page.
The story unfolds with the English landing, stealing and burning the costal town that Devon and her mother live in.
It wouldn't be a romantic historical novel if love wasn't involved and this is what the story is about.
I loved the independence that Devon showed and Andre's wonderful attitude to life and love. Both of them are portrayed as very amorous people.
I also loved the scene where Devon saves Andre's life. It was so exciting and so very touching.
It is beautifully written and the audiobook is narrated with interesting voices and accents so that one knows exactly who is talking at any given time.
I would recommend this book/audiobook to anyone who enjoys a good romantic historical novel.

Although I am question the naivete of Devon.
