Goodreads synopsis:

Set in 1781, during the Revolutionary War, SILVER STORM is the passionate tale of Andre Raveneau and Devon Lindsay who are thrown together when she stows away on his privateer after the British burn her home in New London, CT. The irresistible Captain Raveneau agrees to take her to Virginia to find her childhood sweetheart, but fate has other plans. Through intrigue, misunderstandings, and swashbuckling sea battles, Devon and Andre are swept away by a love that won’t be denied.


My review:

What I liked about Silver Storm:

  1. It took place during the American Revolutionary War. And it was interesting. Not a lot of romance from this period is actually interesting.
  2. Devon’s character. She was a very strong main female heroine. Which I like.
  3. The substories. They were interesting and added depth to the story.

What I disliked about Silver Storm:

  1. Andre. He was an idiot. Plain and simple. If I was Devon, I would have kicked him to the curb instead of waiting for him.
  2. Nothing else
