    Highly recommended the whole Ransome Trilogy Series

    Easy read. It's nice for a change to have a good romance novel that has references to God, isn't trashy, and leaves you wanting more at the end of the story. My only complaint is that I felt it was way overpriced. The Nook book version which I purchased because I was leaving on a trip the next day, was 9.99. I could have gotten a paperback copy through Amazon or eBay for 3.99 but didn't have time to wait for it to get here. I'd plan ahead and look for them online in a version beside the ebook next time.

    Great Summer Read!

    Kaye Dacus has officially become one of my favorite authors with Ransome's Crossing, which combines romance on the high seas with spiritual lessons that kept me thinking for hours after I put the book down. Filled with engaging characters, fast paced action and sweet romance this book was a fabulous read that is impossible to put down! I highly recommend this book, and advise book lovers to get their hands on everything Kaye has written or will write!!

    Another fabulous book in this great series!

    Another fabulous book in this awesome series!, July 30, 2010


    This review is from: Ransome's Crossing (The Ransome Trilogy) (Paperback)
    Ransome's Crossing by Kaye Dacus is book two in the Ransome Trilogy. Yes, you could certainly read Ransome's Crossing withouth having read book one, but why would you want to? This is a fabulous series and you will want to read both books for the full enjoyment of this beautifully written series.

    This book takes place in 1814 in England. We get to visit with familiar characters from the previous book as we watch the story of the Ransome family unfold. And in this story we also get some high seas adventure as well. There is great action and adventure, and gripping suspense. The characters will steal your heart. And you won't be able to put this book down once you start! There is a lot about this incredible story that I would love to tell you, but I never give away plot details. It ruins the fun of reading, in my opinion. You need to get this one and read it for yourself! It is definitely worth it!

    I very highly recommend this book to anyone. The writing is eloquent, the story is suspenseful, the characters are heart warming, and there is a beautiful message of God's love and redemption woven through this entire story. I absolutely cannot wait for book three! Ransome's Quest is due out in July 2011 and I just might burst before with anticipation before then!

    Ransome's Crossing Rocked It.

    Ransome's Crossing by Kaye Dacus is the second book in The Ransome Trilogy. I took it with me on my vacation to Colorado and loved it! I hadn't read the first book so I wondered if I would have a hard time jumping into it, but there was no problem. Kaye seemlessly wove in information from the previous book so that you knew what was going on.

    What I loved about this book is the adventurous spirit of the heroine, Charlotte. She is one tough gal who is courageous enough to risk her reputation (this is the Regency era, you know) and even her life to work among sailors in the midst of war. While a bit misguided in her quest to reunite with her fiance, she does what she does with honor and determination. She is amazing in this book!

    I love how Ned secretly longs for Charlotte and she slowly begins to long for him. It is a slow and beautiful dance Kaye orchestrates between the two and I was routing for them from the get-go.

    There is a cliff hanger at the end, which makes me sit on the edge of my seat in anticipation for the next book! You will LOVE it!

    I Also Recommend:

    Marvelous!

    Picking up immediately after Julia Witherington's marriage to Captain William Ransome, this story is a marvelous follow-up to Ransome's Honor. It covers not only the continuing struggle of Julia and William to define their relationship, but the adventures of William's younger sister Charlotte, and her growing attachment to Ned Cochrane, her brother's first lieutenant. The writing is once again smooth as silk, the descriptions vivid, and the story tightly woven and sound--even regarding the element of Charlotte's passing herself off as a young midshipman for the voyage to Jamaica, which initially raised some skepticism for me. I wanted to savor the end more fully, but with this book ending at a cliffhanger, I'm confident the author will tie all things up beautifully in the volume yet to come!

    In all, spending time again with Julia and William was most enjoyable, and I grew to love Ned and Charlotte as well. It's always a pleasure to read Kaye's work!

    A terrific early nineteenth century tale

    In 1814, her family is unaware that Charlotte Ransome has a secret fiancé Henry Winchester in Jamaica. Although she knows she is acting rash, Charlotte dresses up as midshipman Charles Lott to sneak on board one of the vessels of a fleet captained by her brother Commander William Ransome.

    However, her plan threatens to fall apart when she becomes ill. First Lieutenant Ned Cochran knows who Charles is having met briefly Charlotte in England before setting off for the Caribbean. He is already halfway in love with her from that brief meeting in Portsmouth and decides to conceal her true identity from his superior officer her brother the Commander. On the journey across the sea to find her fiancé, Charlotte finds herself attracted to caring Ned; leaving her to ponder her fickleness as she falls in love with a second man.

    The second Ransome historical romance (see Ramsome's Honor for the turbulent romance between William and Julia) is a terrific early nineteenth century tale as readers will feel they are at sea crossing the Atlantic. The lead couple is a fabulous pairing as she feels capricious while he risks his career for his beloved. Although women disguised as men has been used many times in books and movies, Kaye Dacus makes it feel sea-breezing fresh with a strong entry that also sets up the next novel in the saga with a wonderful final twisting cliffhanger.
