Review: The Red Siren by M.L. Tyndall

About the Book: Faith Westcott is a lady by day and a pirate by night. Can she garner the riches she so desperately needs before her secret is revealed? Captain Dajon Waite is determined to catch the fiery redhead who has been pillaging the Carolina coast. When Faith invites his courtship, she hopes his infatuation will shield her true identity and keep other suitors at bay. Can the love of a godly captain win her heart, or will she be forced to marry Sir Wilhelm Carteret, a man obsessed with taking her to wife?

My Review: Christian lit bloggers have long been buzzing about Mary Lu Tyndall's books, so I was looking forward to this one! And I have to say it's a very fun romantic adventure!
Faith is an extremely likable character...she's a female pirate after all! She's bold and independent and smart. So when you have such a great heroine you need you need an equally likable hero and Dajon was just that. The romantic tension in this book is well done..enough to get your heart pounding without being explicit. :) There's a fair bit of humor and I enjoyed the interactions between the sisters. This is a Christian fiction novel...both Dajon and Faith are on independent journeys to God and this is described in detail, however I found the various viewpoints of the characters to be authentic which is always refreshing. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series...M.L Tyndall is a name to watch in Christian historical romance! You can check out the book on Amazon.

Rating: 3.75/5

Nice review. I liked this one too. I had to get into it before I liked Faith though!

Ah, no wonder I thought I would like this one, I really liked the Falcon and the Sparrow which was her last release. Too bad I missed the deadline for this months reviews. :(

I won this from LT ER - I didn't realize it was Christian romance when I requested it. Do you think it will stand up as an entertaining read despite that for someone who isn't a Christian?

Nice review Amy. Sounds like one to put on my wish list.
