Review: The Siren’s Captain by Regina Scott

The Siren’s Captain was a fun way to wrap up this extremely enjoyable clean Regency series! Captain Quillan St. Claire has been a part of these stories all along, yet a bit aloof and on the outside of the main storylines. He was always quite the man of mystery and it was a lot of fun to finally get a peek into who Quill was. I really liked learning his history and also some new information about him, as well.

The heroine of the novel was a strong woman in so many ways and clearly a very good choice of a love interest for Captain St. Claire. It was easy to like both of these main characters and it was sweet that true affection grew for each other as they acted out a fake romance.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Lord of the Smugglers or lord of her heart?

French singer and spy Marie-Louise Fortier has spent her life protecting idealistic men like her father, who died trying to wrest France back from Napoleon. So when the British War Office asks her to safeguard a former naval captain in the little spa village of Grace-by-the-Sea from the emperor’s threats, she doesn’t hesitate, even if it means pretending to be engaged to the legendary Captain St. Claire to remain at his side.

Quillan St. Claire has been taking care of himself since he was a foundling. He’s fought Napoleon in battle and now smuggles the tyrant’s secrets from France to aid England’s cause. He’s certainly not willing to trust the pretty soprano with his life, yet her siren’s voice seems to call to him. As danger draws closer, Marie and Quill must work together to protect the friendly little village that welcomed them, only to discover that protecting each other may mean risking their hearts for a real chance at love.

If you love sweet, witty Regency romances with a touch of adventure, then you’ll love The Siren’s Captain, the final book in a series by an award-winning author.

Return to Grace-by-the-Sea, where romance and adventure come home, today.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

reginascott11-07medium

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first Regency romance novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Regency romance The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998). In 2011, she was delighted to move into Christian romance with the publication of The Irresistible Earl.

Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency romance novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens), which are now featured in electronic book form as Be My Bride. Her novels have been translated into Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese; and Lord Borin’s Secret Love and The Rake’s Redemption have been issued in hardcover, large print editions. Many of her works are also available as electronic books through Belgrave House’s Regency Reads line or as self-published works, such as Perfection.

Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in the Puget Sound area of Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents were excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician, now retired. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.

Regina Scott is a devout Christian and a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has been known to impersonate an independent consultant specializing in risk communication.
