Series: Charles Towne Belles
Get swept away in a high-tide of romance and adventure from acclaimed author M. L. Tyndall. Attempting to forget about a painful past, Hope Westcott plunges into Charles Towne society trying to find love and acceptance. Captain Nathaniel Mason is determined to build his shipping business and doesn’t need a romantic entanglement—especially with a woman like Hope. When Hope’s adventure-seeking puts her freedom—and her life—in jeopardy, will Nathaniel turn his back or follow God’s voice and sacrifice everything to save her?
Tyndall does an admirable job with character development and plot pacing in this book. Each character is a well-rounded, believable person with whom readers can immediately identify. The action of the plot launches in the first chapter, doesnt let up until the last page, and includes twists that will keep readers interested. Readers will reach the end and wait in anticipation for the next installment in the series.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I began it expecting another predictable romance but found an intriguing, well-written tale that kept me guessing. Tyndalls graphic descriptive comparison of a storm at sea as a living monster was especially memorable. The theme developed through Nathaniels resistance against the call of God is compelling, but even more arresting is Hopes desire to reform her life and win her struggle against her sinful nature. The manner in which this conflict is resolved reminds me of 2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! This book is a good choice for anyone who loves historical romances. Ruth Anne Burrell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

I couldn't put this book down! Read it in one day. Lots of action and mystery, and full of spiritual truths and struggle. I identified with some of the characters in this book. It also took me on a journey with the characters as well as challenging me spiritually. It was like I was struggling and growing right along with them. I love a book that challenges me to grow in my faith. Thank you! And God bless all those involved in writing, publishing and marketing this book. I can hardly wait to get the other two books in the series!

SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5CheesyMarch 3, 2013SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2This book was a disappointment. I thought the Red Siren was a bit boring, but it is better compared to the second book in the series. This book is boring and I feel like I have to force myself to finish it. It just didn't captivate me. One thing that made me lower the rating is how cheesy it is. For example, in one scene there is a strange dark cloud over the ship and Hope is praying asking God for forgiveness. She feels a cold presence in the room and like someone is trying to choke her and when she's done praying the feeling goes away and so does the dark cloud over the ship. Now, I believe in miracles and feeling the presence of evil, but this book takes it to the point where it feels very unrealistic. Some parts of the book I wanted to roll my eyes because it was so unbelievable. I hope the 3rd book in the series is a bit better.

Well I was compelled to read on. I was not disappointed. This author has a way of capturing your attention - all of it. This book had me locked in from beginning to end and yes, I was forced to buy three. So, if you are planning to read - get all three and then start. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
