Finally after reading "The Raven Saint" by MaryLu Tyndall, the last novel in the "Charles Towne Belles" series, I have fully enjoyed the this wonderful book along with the first two books! With each chapter I read, I have an extremely hard time finding out what is going to happen next throughout the book. Grace Westcott a young lady who devotes her life in serving God and helping others in need. French Captain Rafe Dubois a man who is driven to being in authority and doing what he wants to do.
While Grace is on a mission to a needy family, is kidnapped by Rafe who sets sail to Columbia to sell her to a Spanish Don. Grace doesn't understand why and pleads to God for help. She then feels God has her their to share about God and her faith, she is finds that no one is interested in listening to her preach. All she really receives back when the crew on Rafe's ship listen is mockery. Rafe hates all types of religion because of his own father's abuse. During the journey to Columbia Rafe notices how Grace is not like other ladies. He doesn't understand why he starts to get attracted to Grace, so he determined to get rid of her as soon as he can or can he? This story has adventures from being spotted by pirate hunters, dealing with a voodoo curse, all the way to a duel to the death. Reading this swashbuckling romance makes me eager to see if Rafe will find the one true God or see if Grace's life will end in slavery to the Spanish Don!
