Feisty Julia Faircloth is used to managing the lives of her eccentric relatives, so when darkly dangerous Lord Sebastian Trevarre arrives in Bath and proposes to her shy sister Sarah, she switches places with the bride to save her from a shockingly carnal wedding night. Against his better judgment, Sebastian consummates a marriage to the most provoking, appealing woman he's ever known, and then is forced to live with her in his neglected yet enchanting estate on the coast of Cornwall.

Julia, she was evolving, and falling in love and growing up all at the same time.

She brought each character to life, like watching a movie in your mind. Her narration is fantastic.

Dashing and dangerous Andre Raveneau is the Revolutionary War's most reckless privateer captain when Devon Lindsay stows away aboard his ship after her Connecticut town has been burned by the British. Raveneau sardonically agrees to deliver her to her childhood sweetheart in Virginia but doesn't count on his own potent attraction to the enchanting, courageous Devon. Through high adventure, swashbuckling sea battles, and the colorful history of America's revolution, the couple battles the fiery passion that binds them together.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Silver Storm is that love story, historical fiction with lots of action and romance and pirates or privateers as they call them selves, it is most certainly a 5 star book for me. I had read Silver Storm a few years ago, I loved it, I have read all the Raveneau and Beauvisage books and loved everyone of them, listening to Silver Storm was like listening to a new book, I put my Kindle in a smock pocket and my ear buds in and listened while I cleaned, ironed etc. it was so enthralling I didn't want to stop listening to it until it ended, I would recommend the audio version whether you have read the book or not, it is wonderful, I can't wait to get Tempest and listen to it.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed it all, I don't think I can pick just one thing.

Which character – as performed by Emily Beresford – was your favorite?

Devon

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

A lot of them, the scene in their store when the british tried to rape her and kill her Mom, the night of love making on the ship after Raveneau found her on board, so many moved me, if I tell them all it will give the plot away.

Any additional comments?

Just a big Thank You to everyone involved in doing this audible book, CynthIa Wright, Emily Beresford, everyone.
