“A sea adventure like no other, a riveting romance!” -NY Times bestselling author Shirlee Busbee “Another exciting historical romance from Regan Walker” –NY Times Bestselling Author Virginia Henley
“I was hooked from the first page! Political intrigue, a bit of mystery and a beautifully developed romance that swept me from Paris to London and to the waters of the English Channel! Very, very, very well done!” –The Reading Cafe
I really loved this book! Any novel to do with pirates and sea captains is always a must-read for me anyway, and this is up there as one of the best. It is clear that Claire was never destined to be a nun - she is far too independent - and the swashbuckling Captain Powell is, of course, devilishly handsome. There is real chemistry between the two characters and I was really willing them to get their happy ever after. Regan Walker is a brilliant author. She transports you completely to another time and place, with characters that you can't help but love.
Masked balls, handsome sea captains, and a plot that will keep you hooked. What's not to love!? To Tame the Wind is romantic historical escapism at its finest - a historical romance fan's dream of a novel! 5/5 stars.
