About the Author

Susanne Matthews was born and raised in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada. She has always been an avid reader of all types of books, but always with a penchant for happily ever after romances. In her imagination, she travelled to foreign lands, past and present, and soared into the future. Today, she gets to spend her time writing, so she can share her adventures with her readers. She loves the ins and outs of romance, and the complex journey it takes to get from the first word to the last period of a novel. As she writes, her characters take on a life of their own, and she shares their fears and agonies on the road to self-discovery and love.

S. Matthews’ first attempt at historical romance is a wonderful treat for all romance lovers. The story of Etienne and Danielle starts in seventeenth century France, with well-researched historical and political settings that artfully propel the reader into that era. The plot and all the additional adventures of the hero and heroine remind me of Balzac’s masterful writing, combined with some steamy but tasteful eroticism. The action is well-paced, with twists that keep the reader glued to the story, living each moment of passion, frustration, panic or desperate love. Every detail, every name is chosen carefully by the author to fit like puzzle pieces, giving us a glimpse of that long lost time, dominated by drama and intrigue, when a promise valued more than a man’s honor. As all S. Matthews’ work, The Captain’s Promise is definitely a page-turner and similar to watching a great historical movie!
