"Cynthia Wright is a dynamite writer! Are you in for a great read!"~CATHERINE COULTER, New York Times Bestselling Author

Renegade sea captain Ryan Coleraine is persuaded to accompany the adventurous Raveneau family to Regency London to spy for America during the War of 1812. The cynical Coleraine must take the place of their son, who is in the West Indies, and pretend to be the foppish brother of Lindsay Raveneau, a beautiful bluestocking.

Danger, intrigue, and forbidden passion mount as as they carry their daring masquerade to the elegant drawing rooms of Regency Society. Adding to the tension are Lindsay’s parents – Andre and Devon Raveneau from SILVER STORM – who must attempt to chaperone the “brother and sister” under their own roof!

SURRENDER THE STARS is a delicious treat – sensuous, witty, and filled with the magic of new love. Cynthia Wright has written another "keeper!"

Meet the Author

My most frequently asked question: "In what order should I read the Beauvisage & Raveneau books?"
Although the titles stand alone, these two series intertwine with some characters crossing over, and many readers enjoy them in chronological order:
1781 - SILVER STORM
1783 - CAROLINE
1789 - TOUCH THE SUN
1793 - SPRING FIRES (A Beauvisage/Raveneau Novel)
1814 - SURRENDER THE STARS
1814 - NATALYA
1818 - SILVER SEA (A Raveneau/Beauvisage Novel)
1903 - TEMPEST

My career as a novelist began when I was twenty-three, with a phone call from New York announcing that CAROLINE would be published by Ballantine Books. Can you imagine my excitement? I went on to write 12 more bestselling historical romances set in Colonial America, Regency England & America, Medieval England & France, and the American West.

My novels have won many awards over the years, but what means most are readers' messages like this one: "Your books take me to a magical world and I never want them to end." It's been a thrill to have all my novels published as eBooks (newly edited, with gorgeous new covers!). I'll also release a new Raveneau novel, TEMPEST, in 2012.

Today I live in northern California with my husband, Alvaro, in a 1930's Spanish cottage. When we aren't riding our tandem road bike or traveling in our vintage airstream, I love spending time with family, especially my two young grandsons. I also recently received a degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant and feel blessed to have two rewarding careers!

I'd love to have you join me at my website:

    So Romantic!

    This is my favorite book of Cynthia's so far! Everything was perfect - the story, the historical backdrop, the intrigue, and the romance! This was a very romantic story with the ending being the most romantic I have ever read. Truly! You should definitely get Surrender the Stars and read it!! Cynthia Wright is a wonderful writer.

    Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know!

    Lindsey Raveneau (daughter of the adventureseome Andre & Devon Raveneau) meets her match in Ryan when they embark on a somewhat undercover journey to London. You'll love meeting Lindsey and Ryan and re-acquainting with Andre and Devon.

    Cynthia Wright wins again with characters you enjoy, historical fun and intrigue and leaves you hanging for that next book.

    Just Wonderful!

    I loved Silver Storm, so Surrender the Stars, with Andre & Devon Raveneau as the parents of the heroine, Lindsay, was just excellent! And, it's set in Regency England, which Cynthia Wright captures so well. The hero, Ryan Coleraine, is a rake and a privateer captain (like Raveneau) and when the Raveneau family have to go to England to spy during the War of 1812, Ryan goes along and pretends to be their son. It's lots of fun and very romantic because he is all man but has to masquerade as a fop, and he and Lindsay are supposed to be brother and sister, living together with her parents, but they are falling in love. So great to spend time with Devon & Andre again - and Ryan & Lindsay make a fantastic couple! I hated to leave them at the end.

    MY FAVORITE OF THE REVENEAU AND BEAUVISAGE STORIES! I won't go

    MY FAVORITE OF THE REVENEAU AND BEAUVISAGE STORIES! I won't go into what the story is about as other's have done it so well, but this is an amazing story. Even though others have stated it can stand alone, I want to say yes, it can, BUT, you will be doing yourself a disservice because the character's from the other books are woven into not only this one, but the others. I bought the bundle or RAVENEAU AND BEAUVISAGE novels, and this is the way to go because you start out with the RAVENEAU and then go into the novels of BEAUVISAGE and then back to RAVENEAU, it is richer in understanding the stories to do the reading order as the author has stated. This one appealed to be the most I thing because of the way their loved grew for each other. I loved the bantering they did with each other, made me laugh out loud. This is truly a beautifully told romance, with action, suspense, secrets abound, and twists I didn't see coming. Add this to your must read list, you won't be disappointed. Again, the bundles are the way to go. (ljb)

    Very good read!

    – Cynthia Wright is great with the adventure, suspense and romance she creates for her characters. Ryan Coletraine is a spy for America and is brought to London in the disguise of Lindsay’s brother Nathan. Lindsey is the daughter of Revered Sea Captain and Spy, Devon and Andre Raveneau. Romance develops and Nathan and Lindsey have to discover how information is getting to London to create difficulties for America. This was a very difficult book to put down once started

    So romantic!

    Ryan is so different from the brooding angry hero you'd come to expect in a romance/adventure. He knows what he wants and acknowledges his feelings with no hesitation. But still very manly. Makes me want to take him home and meet my mama. If only I'm Lindsay. Good read!

    Very Good!

    This is an interesting story that begins in America and ends in England. The adventure is good. Ryan is smart. I like that the Reveneau's from Silver Storm are included. The book is about 348 pages followed by excerpts from several other stories. The romance was great without being explicit. This is the second book of the Reveneau trilogy. Adventure on land and sea.
