I took me a long time to get around to reading Siren. I can't think of anything less appealing than a pirate romance. I purchased it primarily because Sawyer's literary agent is Kristen Nelson and I've learned to read everything Kristen reps. But still... A pirate romance?

It took me about two pages to get past that bias and fall in love. The blurb on the back cover is really, really mis-representative of what this book is about. I'd classify Siren as a historical adventure based around a romanti

This is a book that is shelved in the romance section, but to apply such a narrow and oft-maligned label to it is to do it a great disservice.

"Look up, what do you see?" "The mizzen." "The only woman in the entire world..."

This was a good read. Lots of history and two independent stories that happen to intersect at points until the characters can bring their lives together.

This a beautifully written book. It really makes you feel like you are back in the 1800's with it. It was one of the first "romance" books I ever read and I still remember it vividly all these years later. Getting ready to read it again.

In her first years, Cheryl Sawyer lived just a few steps from the sea and her favorite places, whether they be Caribbean islands or coastal towns on the Pacific rim, are still within sight and sound of an ocean. She has two master's degrees with honors in French and English literature, and her career has included teaching, publishing, and writing. After a year's travel researching and writing in E ...more
