Book review: The Raven Saint by M.L. Tyndall

The Raven Saint by M.L. Tyndall (Published by Barbour Books, January 1, 2010)

Pious Grace Westcott, the youngest of the Westcott sisters, has devoted her life to helping the poor and living a moral life. She spends her days in her home city of Charleston, South Carolina helping the impoverished residents by donating food, caring for the sick, and helping orphans find homes. So when she is kidnapped by Captain Rafe Dubois, a French mercenary, she struggles to understand what purpose God has in allowing this to happen to her.

Captain Rafe Dubois is a man without faith. He has kidnapped Grace so he can sell her to a Spanish don and use the money to help build a hospital for the poor, in order to fufill a promise he made. He should care nothing for Grace, she is simply a means to an end for him. So he finds himself confused by his feelings about her. And Grace is confused by her mixed feelings towards her captor as well. How can she feel anything for a man who took her away from everything she had?

The Raven Saint is a romantic and exciting story of love, adventure, history, and faith. Grace and Rafe are a completely mismatched pair yet their love story was very sweet and in the end believable. If you love a good pirate romance be sure to give this book a try. It is the third in a series about the Westcott sisters, but the story in this book works as a stand-alone novel if you haven’t read the previous two books.
