Kurzbeschreibung

For readers who like historical fiction with a little romance. Wickedly inviting, the dark side of life has always seduced Lauren De Beauville. With copper-colored tresses and the smile of a pirate this young adventuress throws caution to the wind and leaps into a quagmire of temptation that is 18th Century New York. Will she survive her constant craving for danger?

Dazzled by glamour, Lauren plays a deadly game joining a group of brutal con artists and smugglers who are cheating their way across the New World. There are splendid gowns, handsome men and nights filled with passion. What more could she want? At the very top is James St. Clare, the ruthless yet alluring captain of a ship called The Pride of the King. Risking her life and her love, Lauren allows herself to be swept into his whirlwind of desire and treachery where she risks everything.

Once again, author Amanda Hughes splashes the pages of history with adventure and love stories about audacious women in the 18th and 19th Century. Her page turning tales will keep you on the edge of your seat as you take a wild ride through one of the most passionate and dazzling periods of history.

I bought this book after meeting the author and I thought I would give it a try. Wow...I could not put the book down. The story line is action packed and it keeps the reader guessing what will happen next. The characters are well developed and beleavable. Best of all the history facts ae well researched and provide a beautiful background to a strong female lead discovering her world and her life. you must read this wonderful book ...but watch out... you may read it in one sitting!

5.0 von 5 Sternen For History Buffs 4. September 2013
Von RJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

The story was fast-paced with many unforeseen events. I have researched the 1700's of American history and felt the author did a credible job of representing the dangers, hardships, and fear the early settlers experienced. They were incredibly brave and resourceful. Anyone looking for a sweet romance story may be disappointed. Romance takes a back seat to adventure in this book. I enjoyed reading this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absorbing Tale From 18th Century America--a Heroine to Love and a Hero to Admire! Get this one! 29. November 2012
Von Regan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Hughes is a master storyteller, as I learned when I read her first book, BEYOND THE CLIFFS OF KERRY, which I highly recommended. It's a little like following a guide through a maze. You can't envision the next turn so you are glad she is leading you and you can't stop. The ending is very satisfying, I must say.

This one is set in French New Orleans in 1748, and tells the story of Lauren De Beauville, daughter of French aristocrats who died leaving her and her sister orphans to be raised by nuns. When she is 15, her sister joins the order and Lauren is forced to marry an old man from the English colonies who doesn't speak French. She is rescued from that marriage before it's begun by a hurricane that sweeps her away on her wedding day to another life. Eventually she is forced to leave that other life, too, and ends up in New England, where she joins with con artists who use her as bait to lure aristocrats into business ventures.

There are many twists and turns in this complex story that finally sees Lauren onboard a ship of pirates and misfits who serve a master criminal, their captain, who smuggles guns and other goods, selling them to both the French and the English. Captain James St. Clare wants Lauren to be his contact with the French, but it's a very dangerous assignment and she will have to sell herself to accomplish it. All the while she is watched over by St. Clare, an enigmatic figure, to be sure.

Most of the story is told through the heroine's point of view with the exception of short snippets in the minds of other characters. And there is a huge cast of characters as you can imagine from the different "lives" Lauren experiences. You feel for Lauren as a young innocent with an adventurer's heart who faces one crisis after another and yet always manages to triumph. When the black moment comes--and there is a black moment--it is very real and very believable. I loved Lauren's courage and her determination--and her kindness. She's one hell of a woman. No wonder the hero will not give her up.

I can't say enough good things about this book or about Hughes' writing. Just take my word for it and get it and you'll understand. I don't want to give away the mystery by saying more about the story except that she peels back the layers like an onion--expertly. I have become one of Hughes' committed fans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen First I borrowed a friends copy...then I bought my own! 26. September 2013
Von Lorree N. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is truly one of my favorite books I have ever read. I had a very difficult time putting it down and had to scramble to get things done so I could return to the adventure! Thank you for all the great historical research! It really renders a wonderful depth to the plausibility of the story line. I have acquired a whole new perspective of the struggles of my ancestors. Please keep writing and I'll try to prioritize my time!
