About the author:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cynthia Wright says:
Because so many readers have asked, "In what order should I read the Raveneau & Beauvisage books?" - here is that oft-requested list!
Although the titles stand alone, these series intertwine with some characters crossing over, and many readers enjoy them in chronological order:
1749 - HEART OF FRAGILE STARS
1781 - SILVER STORM
1783 - CAROLINE
1789 - TOUCH THE SUN
1793 - SPRING FIRES
1798 - SMUGGLER'S MOON
1814 - SURRENDER THE STARS
1814 - HER DANGEROUS VISCOUNT
1818 - HIS RECKLESS BARGAIN
1903 - TEMPEST (now available!)
My career as a novelist began when I was twenty-three, with a phone call from New York announcing that CAROLINE would be published by Ballantine Books. Can you imagine my excitement? I went on to write 12 more bestselling historical romances set in Colonial America, Regency England & America, Medieval England & France, and the American West.
My novels have won many awards over the years, but what means most are readers' messages like this one: "When I read your books, I can't wait to turn the page, but never want the story to end." It's been a thrill to have all my novels published as eBooks (newly edited, with gorgeous new covers!), and I have also released an all-new Raveneau Novel, TEMPEST and the first book in a new Raveneau series set in Cornwall in 1798 called SMUGGLER'S MOON.
I'm currently at work on the second book in the Raveneaus in Cornwall series.
Today I live in northern California with my husband, Alvaro, in a 1930's Spanish cottage. When we aren't riding our tandem road bike or traveling in our vintage Airstream, I love spending time with family, especially my two young grandsons. I also recently received a degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant and feel blessed to have two rewarding careers!

WINNER of ROMANTIC TIMES Award for BEST BRITISH ISLES HISTORICAL ROMANCE!
A DARING MASQUERADE...
Nathan Raveneauy, 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!
