Surrender the Dawn

And now, the conclusion of the Surrender to Destiny series by MaryLu Tyndall...
Surrender The Dawn.

Cassandra Channing became the head of her household by default when her father and brothers disappeared into the mists of the War of 1812. It is unheard of for a woman to invest her money into a privateer, and no one wants to do business with her for fear of bad luck. But Cassandra is desperate to save her family's finances, and desperate times call for desperate measures.

Luke Heaton has a ship, if you can call it that, and plenty of experience being a privateer, but he needs funds, and that's where Miss Channing comes in. She has the money, he has the ship and the know-how. He may be the town rogue with a more-than-slightly tarnished reputation, but he's willing to do business with Cassandra, which is more than the other privateers can say.

So, Cassandra takes a chance and it pays off. The first voyage is wildly successful, and it looks like their future and finances are saved.

a jealous suitor doesn't want Cassandra Channing to be independent.
someone's out for revenge on Luke Heaton.

When these two join forces, they lay a clever trap, and Luke's brother is kidnapped and used to blackmail him into providing supplies to the British. Cassandra really wants to trust Luke because she's falling in love with him, but she's suspicious of his recent activities. When she sets out to discover the truth for herself, she's caught in the toils of the massive British invasion and held prisoner.

The British may see Luke and Cassandra as mere pawns to be sacrificed on the altar of war, but to God, they are priceless treasures, and He rules their destinys as well as the destiny of a new nation!

Check out what happens in Surrender The Dawn. A great wrap up to the Surrender to Destiny series.

I love history, so these books are right up my alley. But even if you're not a fan of history, you'll enjoy these well-written stories. Who doesn't like a good love story with some swasbuckling adventure thrown in?! Who knows, you might even find that history is not as dry as you thought it was!
