The Red Siren by M L Tyndall

Captain Dajon Waite still burns at the ignonimy he suffered at the hands of marauding pirates while at the helm of his father's ship, his humiliation multiplied by being bested by a woman known only as the Red Siren.

Now a successful captain with His Majesty's Royal Navy, Dajon once again finds himself subject to the whims of the fairer sex, having been cajoled into acting as guardian to Rear Admiral Westcott's daughters - a job that would cause even the most courageous man to tremble.

Faith Westcott has felt responsible for her sisters since the death of her mother and her father's continued disinterest in their well being. Determined they will not be left to suffer at the hands of an ill fated marriage like their eldest sister, Charity, Faith resorts to a life of piracy to seek a fortune that will allow her sisters independence and freedom.

Will the devout captain arrest the wayward pirate or will the chains that bind them together be of an entirely different kind?

MaryLu Tyndall returns to the Caribbean with a story that may be her best yet. Cutlasses clash and hearts collide in this captivating tale of adventure, love and redemption. Dajon epitomises the dashing hero, his appeal bolstered by his faith and a heart made tender by tragedy, yet with inner strength and an engaging wit that he constantly employs with his interaction with Faith. She is a fun heroine, sassy, capable and fearless, determined to protect her sisters despite what they think of her. MaryLu's dialogue sparkles as the romantic tension between Dajon and Faith escalates in a captivating yet never unseemly manner. MaryLu is the Jane Austen of the High Seas, with Faith, Hope and Grace reminiscent of Elizabeth, Lydia and Mary Bennett and there's even a despicable Mr Collins! Rest assured however, this story is unique and can rest solely on it's own laurels.

If you love a spirited tale with vibrant characters, vivid scenery and a solid message of God's love, The Red Siren is the perfect escape!
There is no doubt this will be a story I will read again and again.
