1st off, I want to say I read / listened to this book via When I have a choice, I try to do my books in audio format as it is like listening to a movie. Words are pronounced properly & the right amount of excitement in all the right places. The accents are awesome, along with all the voices! I highly recommend audiobooks! They are great for traveling, cleaning, gardening * anything else you need your hands free for!

I really enjoyed listening to this book. An adventure for sure...more

"I LOVE The Raveneau Novels! Fabulous!"
What made Surrender the Stars most enjoyable for me was the way the story was continued. It was perfect. It went in the right direction and I really want to continue with this series. This is a genuinely delightful story. Considering that I'm new to the historical romance genre, I don't know what I would compare it to. I'm very pleased to be introduced by Cynthia Wright into this genre with such a great start. All of the scenes were my favorite. I take in...more

I don't remember having read this one before. I love the richness of her characters and the backdrop of her stories even though her characters follow the same lines of strong stubborn women and bad men.
this one was my fave of the three books in the ravenequ series and im totally likingbthis authors style!
I am thoroughly enjoying Ms. Wright's stories! I enjoyed Andre and Devon's characters being woven throughout Ryan and Lindsay's story. I love how Ms. Wright allows the plot to unfold; it keeps me mesmerized, waiting for what will transpire next! Ms. Wright's research seems to be meticulous; intriguing details add to the richness of the story.
