This is a Historical Romance novel set in the 18th century during the American Revolution.
Devon Lindsay is a young innocent girl, who lives with her mother in New London, Connecticut. After the town is ransacked by the British red coats, Devon is rescued by a crew member of a privateer called the Black Eagle. Devon hides on board disguised as a man. The French Captain Andre Raveneau soon discovers her. There is already a history between Devon and Raveneau they have already shared a passionate kiss in the past.
Devon is determined to meet up with her childhood sweetheart Morgan Gadwin, who is fighting in the war. Add in a mysterious character called Jay and which one will our leading lady Devon make her Beau?
Silver Storm is a nice easy read that really draws the reader in the first few chapters. What I like about this book is that the author takes a brave risk, by making her leading men not very likeable. I know this will not be to too many readers taste, but I personally feel that this makes the book more true to life. Devon is a very likeable character. I really enjoyed reading this book, which is the first in the Raveneau series and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
