Betrayed by the man she longed to marry, Hope Westcott finds herself on an island in the Caribbean being auctioned off as a slave to the highest bidder. Raised in an unloving home and after enduring a difficult childhood, Hope's search for love and self-worth have led her down a very dangerous path. All she ever wanted was to find true love and to some day open an orphanage where she could raise children with all the love she never experienced as a child. But how can a woman with a sordid past ever hope to run an orphanage, let alone attract the love of an honorable man?
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?

The Blue Enchantress by M. L. Tyndall weaves themes of love and forgiveness through the story of Nathaniel Mason and Hope Westcott. In the beginning scene, Hope, the daughter of an admiral, finds herself on an auction block through of a series of circumstances that include an illicit affair (nothing is described in detail). Nathaniel, who knows Hope and has been attracted to her for some time, watches from the crowd and struggles with his conscience over whether to step in and save her or not. The results of his decision launch a story of deceit, guilt, trust, forgiveness, and renewed hope.
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
