Book Description

Rakes & Rebels, Book 6
~ Renegade sea captain Ryan Coleraine is persuaded to accompany the adventurous Raveneau family to Regency London to spy for America during the War of 1812. The sardonic Coleraine must take the place of their son, who is in the West Indies, and pretend to be a fop. Lindsay Raveneau, a beautiful and independent bluestocking, finds herself with a "brother" who challenges and arouses her in the most unsettling ways...

Danger, intrigue, and forbidden passion mount as as Ryan and Lindsay carry their daring masquerade to the elegant drawing rooms of Regency society. Adding to the tensions are Lindsay’s parents – Andre and Devon Raveneau from SILVER STORM – who must attempt to chaperone their daughter and her "brother" under their own roof!

SURRENDER THE STARS is pure delight – sensuous, witty, unexpected, and vibrant with the magic of love. Cynthia Wright has written another "keeper!"

"Rakes & Rebels" combines the intertwining Raveneau and Beauvisage family novels into one captivating 9-book series!

More About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cynthia Wright is happy to announce that "Rakes & Rebels" unites the intertwining Raveneau and Beauvisage family novels into one captivating 9-book series, set in both America and the UK!
1 - SILVER STORM (1781)
2 - CAROLINE (1783)
3 - TOUCH THE SUN (1789)
4 - SPRING FIRES (1793)
5 - SMUGGLER'S MOON (1798)
7 - NATALYA (1814)
8 - SILVER SEA (1818)
9 - TEMPEST (1903)

A writer since childhood, Cynthia spent 8th grade typing a sequel to GONE WITH THE WIND, quickly getting Rhett and Scarlett together again! At 21, she penned CAROLINE, set in 1783 at the end of the Revolutionary War, and it not only became a bestseller for Ballantine Books, but also won a place on keeper shelves around the world. Cynthia went on to write 13 more bestselling historical romances set in Colonial America, Regency England, Renaissance England & France, and the American West. Her latest, published in 2013 and 2014, are TEMPEST and SMUGGLER'S MOON.

Although Cynthia's novels have garnered many awards over the years, what means most to her are readers' messages like this one: "When I read your books, I can't wait to turn the page... but I never want the story to end!"

Cynthia lives in northern California with her husband, two dogs, and one cat, in a 1930's Spanish cottage. When she and her husband aren't riding their tandem road bike or traveling in their Airstream, she loves spending time with family, especially her two young grandsons. She is at work on a new novel, ALWAYS HIS, which will appear as Rakes & Rebels, Book 6.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surrender the Stars by Cynthia Wright 4 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Set during a war between America and Britain in the early nineteenth century.

When the President needs an American family, he knows he can trust to live in London and who can mix in the highest circles of society. He asks Andre and Devon Raveneau. They agree to help because it is for their country, to help find the person who has been helping the British by leaking valuable information, giving the British an advantage. The president wants Devon and Andre to take their two grown up children with them too. Lindsay is a bookish girl who teaches at the school house. When not teaching she is always lost in a book reading. Nathan is handsome, intelligent and would quickly win a place in London society. The problem is that Nathan is currently in the West Indies so it is up to Sea Captain Ryan Coleraine to step into Nathan's shoes and pretend to be him. Ryan is a tall, lean and strong Irishman who has just returned from sea.

When Lindsay meets Ryan she takes an instant dislike to him. She thinks he is uneducated, cocky, ill-mannered rouge and a ladies man. During the voyage to England Lindsay and Ryan find that they do have things in common and for Lindsay the adventure of self discovery has just begun.

Will Lindsay and Ryan be able to pass as brother and sister, when they must hide their true feelings for each other, love or hate?

Can the family blend in with British society and find the traitor who is telling the British secrets and helping them.

This is another superb historical romance novel by Cynthia Wright. The plot of the story ties together really well and I really enjoyed the story. What an adventure the two leading characters have, making a really good love story. The good news is that I still have a lot more books that I can read from this fantastic author and I can't wait to get started on them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surrender the Stars (The Raveneau Novels bk 2) 18 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Didn't realise when I started that there are 10 books which follow 3 families through 400 years.... The Raveneau family are the sea fairers, they are mentioned all all previous books starting with The St. Briac Novels, followed by The Beauvisage family. and ofcourse all those families crop us from time to time in the Raveneau adventures. Either through adult children or grandchildren. All of these books are well researched (locations, manners of the times etc).... and so well written, that you feel you are actually there, smell the smells and see the sights. I adored all the characters, locations and adventures. Truly worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars pure unadulterated romance 3 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having downloaded the first book of this series for free which I really enjoyed, I had to immediately purchase the second book, feeling slightly disappointed that i was loosing out on the next stage of Devon and Andres life I was soon gripped with the unraveling story of Ryan and Lindsay.
My disappointment soon disappeared when Devon and Andre quickly made an appearance in the book and stayed there right until the end.
I have to confess I don't usually read such 'romantic' books but now and again it does one no harm and I soon found myself daydreaming and falling for the handsome Irish Captain Ryan, I have loved reading this book and didn't want it to end, and I defy anyone not to succumb to Ryan's dashing looks and charms! I feel sad the book has ended and I have now purchased the 3rd book in the series. I highly recommend this book and series its a great escape and a great read filled with fine detail and taste. Thank You to Cynthia Wright!
