Charles Towne Belles/Book 2
Hope Westcott has a lifetime of bad choices under her dainty little belt. The most recent one—an affair with a married man—lands her on an auction block to be sold into slavery.
Captain Nathaniel Mason is running from God’s call to the ministry. He is determinedly building a shipping business, ensuring himself a lifetime of security, which he mistakenly believes wealth can buy. His weakness is a secret love for the vain and frivolous Hope Westcott. When he sees her on the auction block, his love demands he sacrifice his ship and its cargo to save her.
Nathaniel has every intention of returning his lovely new possession to her home in Charles Towne, but God uses stormy seas, shipwreck, illness, and pirates to waylay the headstrong couple until they see things His way.
The Blue Enchantress is a captivating tale of love, forgiveness, acceptance, personal and spiritual growth, and learning to yield to the Master’s will. M.L. Tyndall breathes such life into her characters that the reader is reluctant to bid them farewell on the last page. This second installment in the Charles Town Belles series is chock full of laughter and tears, sin and redemption, love and its seedier counterpart. The Blue Enchantress is a pirate’s chest of literary treasure … more than worth the voyage!
