Publisher's Summary

A Daring Masquerade...
Nathan Raveneau, son of Andre & Devon (Silver Storm), is known as "The Scapegrace" in Regency London for his rakish exploits and devastating good looks. He is also a sea captain with an estate on Barbados. To gain land near his enemy, Xavier Crowe, Raveneau agrees to act as protector to headstrong Adrienne Beauvisage - and keep her chaste until her 21st birthday.
Adrienne is both outraged and intrigued by the man who calls himself Nathan Essex. She knows little of the threats that lurk at the English castle of eccentric Lady Thomasina Harms... or of the daring that Raveneau, in his guise as Nathan Essex, must employ to keep her out of harm's way.
A Reckless Abduction...As the powerful attraction between them builds, Nathan is forced to abduct an unwilling Adrienne, boldly spiriting her away to his ship. In a rousing adventure that carries them from Regency England across the sea to magical Barbados, Nathan and Adrienne struggle against a compelling and passionate love while caught in a growing web of danger.
Don't miss this enchanting novel that unites the Raveneau and Beauvisage families!

Protect The Innocent's Virtue, Can It Be Done?

I have enjoyed this series written by Cynthia Wright and narrated by Emily Beresford – the Raveneau Novels are great with the historic perspective as well as the romance. There is always a sinister plot that needs to be worked out by the hero and heroine.

My only complaint with His Reckless Bargain was is that it was too long. Listening to the first part of it this book was very intriguing, in my opinion. However, when it picked up, it was fast, action-packed and fantastic! I don't know anything about writing books or editing them, but perhaps removing an hour of this one would have made it an perfect listening experience instead of a great one.

Nathan Raveneau has been chosen to protect Adrienne Beauvisage's virtue until she turns 21 years old. In exchange for that Nathan will receive an abundant parcel of land in Barbados.

I enjoyed it, from the scenic descriptions to the passionate embraces – this book as it all!

Emily Beresford is excellent in her presentation and performance of all of the characters. It was a joy to listen to her make them come alive.

Notes: A few mature scenes, but that is it.

- DK "No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!"

A very enjoyable sags continues...

Here we are in book 3: His Reckless Bargain (The Raveneau series). I am so happy to see this series continue in the audio book format! I love stories that run in series with familiar characters! In Book 3, Andre & Devon's son Nathan is also a sea captain. He is in England when he is offered a job to guard a man's daughter and insure her safety and virtue until her 21st birthday which is 4 months away. Nathan in return for doing this job will receive 40 acres of land in Barbados that He has been wanting to buy, but couldn't afford. Barbados, what a wonderful setting for a story!

Adrienne Beauvisage is the young woman he is to watch over and protect. It is hate at first site when they meet again. The first time they met was an argument in the street. Nathan pretends to be Nathan Essex instead of himself so Adrienne will accept him easier along with the rest of the public. Adrienne has accepted a job to help Lady Thomisina Harms. So off they all go to the Lady Thomisina home where Adrienne is in so much danger that Nathan whisks her off to his ship and explains who he is.

His Reckless Bargain is a wonderful love story that blooms in front of us. I really enjoyed this book along with the first 2 books I also read in this series. One thing I absolutely love is the same narrator for the series. When I read a series, I get used to one voice and find the series most believable by using same narrator! The author Cynthia Wright once again does a fantastic job writing this love story from way back when! The narrator, Emily Beresford delivers this tale to us in a quirky wonderful way with all her voices and accents that are so entertaining! Ms Beresford is one of my favorite narrators!

I can't wait to see what book 4 has in store for me to read! See you all then...
