Reader's Choice Award: Best Long Historical
Beacon Award: Best Historical
 
"Terrific dialogue...and hot loves scenes. If you haven't read 
Tracy Sumner before, Tides of Passion is a good place to start."
~All About Romance
 
"Delicious and amusing...witty dialogue, 
sparkling humor and a snappy narrative. A must read!"
-~TheBestReviews.com
 
"This novel realizes with a great and witty gusto that independence 
isn't so much about being on your own as it is about choosing to be together."
~Romantic Times

 
"Savannah and Zach are fun, daring and sexy. A deliciously romantic read!"
~A Romance Review
 
"Tracy Sumner does an awesome job of creating fun, feisty, laugh-out-loud dialogue. She also stirs up a tremendous amount of sexual tension between the two main characters."

From the Author

Dear Reader:
 
Soon after the release of Tides of Love, I began receiving letters asking when Noah Garrett's older brother, Zachariah, would get his own story.
 
I had always intended to write Zach's story, but when I finished Tides of Love and thought to start Tides of Passion, I wasn't sure who could lure Zach away from his lonely, quite solitary existence. He was committed to being a father but had stated in no uncertain terms that he would never marry again.
 
This character was definitely not interested in falling in love.
 
In an allaboutromance.com review for Tides of Love, someone mentioned that Zach's love interest would have to be a stranger to Pilot Isle; someone he would have instant, insatiable chemistry with. It was then I recalled a scene at the end of Tides of Love, where Zach is headed to the train station to pick up Elle's best friend, Savannah Connor.
 
At that time, I was living in Manhattan, and I understood Savannah (a native New Yorker herself) as well as any heroine I have ever written. I loved her strength and her vulnerability - and I realized she would be the perfect match for Zach, a man with a strong sense of decency and loyalty to his family, but also a man who thought he would never find another woman to love.
 
I loved helping him find out how mistaken he was!
 
Happy Reading.
 
Tracy Sumner

This is a great romance novel. It satisfies all areas of a great book: comedy, suspense, and the romance... whew! The best I have read in a long time. The relationships that build throughout the book were well defined and makes you wonder what will happen next. I couldn't put the book down and read it in one day. Can't wait to read the other book Tides of Love.

I am embarrassed to admit that I didn't initially realize that this was a Historical Romance. The cover screamed contemporary to me and although the book summary mentioned that the heroine, Savannah, was a reformer, that didn't strike me as impossible for a modern woman. Added, to that, the writing and dialogue seemed modern. I somehow completely missed the date on the first page--I must be blind!--and found myself more and more perplexed by the attitudes expressed toward Savannah's determination to get better wages and working conditions for the women of Pilot Isle. Well, suffice to say I had to backtrack on my Kindle and look for a date. How embarrassing to miss that this was set in 1898! Anyway, enough focus on my lack of observation. On to the book!

I was immediately charmed by the setup between Savannah and Zach. We first meet them as Zach is busting up a protest Savannah started outside the oyster factory. He's the constable and currently considers Savannah his cross to bear. The woman--or rabble-rouser, as he thinks of her--is constantly stirring up trouble. She has been arrested thirteen times to date, so you can imagine that she isn't afraid to stir the pot. I found it amusing that Zach and his brother, Caleb, argued about who would have what duty in breaking up the protest: breaking up the crowd or dealing with Savannah. Zach lost and got stuck with her. LOL!

I liked that Zach wasn't written as too modern. He had a healthy respect for women, but he also had a milder version of the common attitude of men in that day. He felt honest sympathy for her struggle, but he also had to fight her every step of the way because of pressure from the townspeople.

I'm sorry, but this book didn't do it for me in the least bit. The first 3/4 of the book the girl spent her time chasing him, the last part of the book (probably 10 physical pages, if that) he spent chasing her. The reason for him leaving was...ridiculous. And for as long as he was gone? Come on, I've had some pretty horrible fights with my family, but leaving and not talking to them for that whole time was simply not part of the equation. The book didn't even discuss that problem that had him running for the hills and in my opinion that chapter wasn't closed, but I won't spend too much time on that since there is the possibility that the plot continues on in the next books.
Next, there was the writing....oh, the writing.... throughout the book there were points when the author would describe the character doing something, say standing, and in the next sentence they would be rolling over to look at the blue sky or they would be sitting on the stairs, then leaning their elbows on the railing without ever having stood up. It gave me the same disconnected feeling I get when watching people move in a strobe light. That was the beginning of my dislike. Their conversations with one another....most of the time was pointless, and with the vague and confusing descriptions of their movements, it turned into mild irritation for me.
The end was completely lackluster...seriously. I won't be reading the rest of the series either. In fact, I'm looking for a new book to read because that on left an unpleasant feeling behind and I need to quickly soothe my pain by finding a book of substance.

I got this book because I felt like reading a romantic novel and seeing the good reviews on the book, I decided to go for it. When I started reading it, I discovered that this story reminded me of the Mills & Boon I used to read as a teenager. In comparison, Mils and Boon even has better context than this book.

This book failed to capture realistic romance. Noah, a character in this novel adamantly denied his feelings for Elle who kept showing him she wanted to be a part of him. About 90% of the story was on how Elle tried to win Noah and the remaining 10%, Noah suddenly started acknowledging his feelings for Elle. The end of the book was rushed and most of the romance was more of lust and fantasies!

I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone, don't be fooled by the reviews, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

I'm obviously in the minority here, but "Tides of Love" did absolutely nothing for me. For weeks I slogged through this book, reading for a few moments, then putting it down, over and over, before finally giving up.

I found the ostensible hero, Noah, insufferable, and although the heroine, Elle, was less irritating, she was no more engaging than Noah. Not even the plot, such as it was, could draw me in; for a book where SO MUCH happens, very little of it was actually interesting. The H/h help an abused woman escape her husband, survive disaster and a death in the family and a separation, which should make for an exciting read, but alas.

What's more, the characters often think and talk in wholly modern terms, which is always a problem for me in historical fiction. Were it not for descriptions of the characters clothing and a few other details, this book could just as easily have been a contemporary.

And despite the fact that the book is fairly well written, the author never misses an opportunity to use a ten dollar word when a dime word would suffice; flames are "saffron," sweaty clothing "adheres" to a character's body -- you get the picture.

I'm glad I got this one free -- else I'd be even more disappointed.
