I saw this book had so many 5 star ratings and glowing reviews (and I just can't resist a handsome moody Privateer either) that I downloaded this straight away and I'm so glad I did.... thank you fellow reviewers.

Devon has been captivated by the handsome charismatic French Privateer Captain Andre Raveneau since she was 13 and had dreams of sailing the high seas with her long time friend. Unfortunately, 5 years later, War has thrown her life in a different direction... straight into the moody, bad tempered and unwilling clutches of Andre. However, her independence, thoughtfulness and feisty attitude (as well as her charms) soon has the sizzling chemistry boiling over but insecurities, stubbornness, misunderstandings and secrets get in the way of their HEA.

It's a sweeping fantasy romance that has both drama and humor, and carries you away on the tempestuous high seas to witness angst, treachery, death, spies, lies, secrets, bitter ex's wanting revenge, a scorned lover with a devious plan, heartache, character growth and a romance that grew into a beautiful touching love story. The sex was only very mildly hinted at.

Worth a credit? This was a very well written and described listen and the Narrator did a great job so that I could mentally picture each Chapter and I liked it so much that I've just put all the rest of the series in my basket... so YES a very seaworthy.... oh I mean creditworthy historical romance that'll leave you with a smile on your face.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Audible Version of "Silver Storm" is terrific!

Where does Silver Storm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've finally figured out how to download the Audible feature on my phone (and Kindle, too) and have discovered audio books again! I no longer have long car commutes, but now I have found a way to listen to engrossing historical fiction like Cynthia Wright's "Silver Storm" and was immediately caught up in this wonderful tale of America's Revolutionary War era while walking, cooking, and even doing laundry! The narrator, Emily Beresford, is absolutely superb (and this is a field I know, having been a radio commentator for ABC in LA for 18 years)! Her melodious speaking voice sweeps the listener into that tumultuous period of America's history in a kind of "You Are There" fashion that totally makes the modern world fade away. Beresford has an amazing knack of portraying male voices convincingly--even ones with a slight French accent. What a treat for the ears...and thanks both to Ms. Wright and Ms. Beresford for re-introducing me to the pleasure of listening to the written word. Loved it!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Silver Storm?

When the heroine meets Andre Raveneau which she is still a young girlll

What does Emily Beresford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As mentioned above, Beresford has an amazing knack of audibly portraying the characters whether men or women; young or old.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Well...Cynthia Wright's novels always wring emotion from me...and Silver Storm is no exception...but hearing the book read really makes it come to life!

Any additional comments?

I think it's wonderful that talents like Emily Beresford can be heard by "readers" all over the world and I'm so appreciative that Ms. Wright chose her to personify the characters in Silver Storm. What a delight and I can't wait until some of Wright's other novels can be listened to by people-on-the-go as I am. Thanks!
