    Re Read 1 16 14Recently, I had a like on my original review, which had me pulling up the book I remember I loved this book, loved it as in told everyone I knew to read it But that was several years ago, and I had just fallen back into my obsession with reading So I wondered if maybe I was naive in my ratings and standards, having read so few at the time So I read the sample on BN One chapter in, my opinion was validated I purchased the ebook had the paperback originally , and literally disappeared into the story This is just one of the best reads I have yet to come across It plays like a timeless classic of high seas adventure and intrigue It s absolutely not fluff, but a epic romance of the purest form Romance not only of two people, but of time, long ago, a way of living long gone, and of the most basic and true heroics Characters larger than life and so audacious they held me spellbound like a child Writing that projects the story across the wide screen of my mind in high def What an amazing writer I also realize that rare authors like this are what raised my standards I can count on one hand the number of books I have re read Yep, true love for me then and now 1st ReviewThis is the third book I have read from Marsha Canham and it will not be the last She tells a story so articulately and descriptive I was lost in the motion picture it played in my head Wind and the Sea was no exception Wonderful characters that were deep and tangible, a story that was an amazing roller coaster ride Generally I stick with romance novels, and this has great romance to be sure, the adventure is forefront and so compelling I defy anyone to not enjoy this book Marsha Canham is now one of my favorite authors, up there with Diana Gabldon I would whole hearted recommend this book.

    This is such a fabulous book It is action packed and A LOT happens, but it s written in such a way that you are not left confused or overwhelmed, or having to flip back pages to remember what happened in the last chapter I mean, as much as I d like to, I can t spend all day reading books from cover to cover in one sitting There is also a lot of descriptive detail e.g details on ships such as rigging, firing cannons, and the Mediterranean politics of the time , but it s well integrated with real clarity The historical background is also very accurate, which I really appreciate There was a real feeling of pirates, Americans, British and French all sailing around the Mediterranean chasing after each other, and there was clearly no need to embellish or make up pseudo history to suit the plot.The hero and heroine are also great, great characters They are what I would probably describe as difficult people Hard to get along with, hard to like really, but awe inspiringly good at what they do Their backgrounds are solid, and rich, but credible They really suited each other.The only minor thing which irritated me a little was that after they meet up again, they become all lovey dovey and kind with each other Now, I accept that he s probably going to stop smacking her, and she ll probably stop trying to kill him, but I just couldn t really see their relationship as being that docile I can visualise them having big, heated arguments, and them steamy reconciliations, but not a contented relationship really.As for the secondary characters, they are all rounded in their own right, and although the evil ones are really evil, there is a huge amount of ambiguity about most of the characters in the book Are they really as bad as they appear Or are they less good than they appear Yes, there is blood and gore than HRs generally seem to have now s the pity IMO , but apart from the God awful cover will you check out that terrifying blusher on the poor heroine , there is really nothing cheesy about it It s incredibly convincing, after all, pirates were incredibly vicious, and the navies of the times were also pretty horrendous.So, solid 5 stars, fabulous read, will definitely check out her other recent ebook re releases.

    My copy of The Wind and the Sea is the most expensive second hand paperback book I have ever owned Bought this out of print book for USD 100 including shipping I had to have it And I got it and 15 years ago, I read this book back to back in one night A couple of days ago, I purchased it for my Kindle as my copy is tattered and boxed up somewhere with my other keepers and re read this again Oh the swashbuckling adventures on the high seas This book should be made into a movie Hollywood is ready for some old fashioned swashbuckling adventure like in the old days when Errol Flynn would command the genre and the silver screen As was the case 15 years ago, I couldn t put it down, I was reading this in the plane, in the taxi, when I was out of meetings, I could care less when the plane landed home all I wanted to know was how Court and Adrian were doing I wanted to be a pirate Ar Ar I want to swing my imaginary scabbard into the air and sail away to an adventure somewhere in the Mediterranean Oh Miz Canham thank you for writing this WONDERFUL book Thank you for taking me back to Gibraltar and soon I will be going to Marrakech and will be thinking of the Barbary Corsairs when there. ARRRRRRRRRRRRR

    It has been a LONG time since I have read a pirate adventure such as The Wind and the Sea The adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal that swirled throughout the pages gave this reader a sense of what life on the high seas must have been like during the nineteenth century Ms Canham uses great depictions to describe the battle scenes, making me feel as if I were reading a true historical account instead of a historical romance Then you have a truly vicious vixen that goes out of her way to use her body to try and destroy the one person she loathes the most Courtney Beautifully written, The Wind and the Sea is a swashbuckling tale that calls to the pirate in all of us.DanielleReviewer for Coffee Time Romance MoreFull Review

    Great High Seas Romance No one weaves a high seas romance better than Marsha Canham and this is a great one Originally published in 1986, it is set in 1804 along the Barbary Coast It s is a story of great emotions of courage, hatred, passion, jealousy, betrayal and revenge Courtney Farrow s parents marriage had been a love match until the guillotine took her mother Her father, Duncan Farrow, a handsome red haired Irishman, became a famous Barbary Coast pirate taking his revenge on French ships and raising the daughter his beloved wife gave him raising her like a son Courtney can fight as well as a boy even dressing the part and cutting her hair short Duncan Farrow became good at his game, amassing a huge fortune he secreted away in America for Courtney But then he was betrayed, and an American warship came after his ships and his men Among the spoils the American officer claimed was Court, who at 19, still passed for a boy, even with her large green eyes and auburn hair Tall, sandy haired American 1st Lieutenant Adrian Ballantine believes Court s father is a murderer and he believes Court is a lad so he takes her as his cabin boy He is her enemy and the hatred is strong between them until he discovers she is a woman Add passion to hatred and you get an explosive mix Meanwhile, Court vows to find the traitor who betrayed her father and have her revenge.I loved the length of this tale, a good long romance, but even then, I didn t want it to end So, it s another great romance for all who love adventure on the high seas and who want a change from the usual fare and from an author who knows how to do it well
