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 gritty 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 wild rides through dramatic and dazzling periods of history.

5.0 von 5 Sternen For History Buffs 4. September 2013
Von RJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointment of the King 28. Januar 2014
Von Lexi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
At first I liked the deviation from the standard "flighty/fiesty virgin gets seduced by rogue with a heart of gold" formula. The main character is most definitely not a virgin by the time she encounters our "hero" and is pretty secure with her bold love of life and her decision to experiment with her sexuality....so far so good and a welcome change! Unfortunately nothing much happens from there. The heroine goes through a series of misadventures that quite frankly get a bit old and without at least indulging the reader in any emotional or sensual aspect of her experiences. The "hero" aside from throwing the occasional brooding glance at our heroine basically pimps her out for his own benefit, calls her all sorts of names that would make my women's studies professor shudder and then somehow they magically fall (FINALLY--it take almost the whole book) into each other's arms. When THAT finally happens are you rewarded with any heart-thudding accounts of their union --even poetic in nature (not everyone cares for graphic)? Nope--we skip immediately to the next day and you must imagine what all those years of unrequited, pent-up passion must have felt like. And the ending? I won't spoil it other than to say...abrupt, random and unsatisfactory. This book started with potential but seemed determined to squander it.
