ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
M. L. (MARYLU) TYNDALL grew up on the beaches of South Florida loving the sea and the warm tropics. But despite the beauty around her, she always felt an ache in her soul--a longing for something more.

After college, she married and moved to California where she had two children and settled into a job at a local computer company. Although she had done everything the world expected, she was still miserable. She hated her job and her marriage was falling apart.

Still searching for purpose, adventure and true love, she spent her late twenties and early thirties doing all the things the world told her would make her happy, and after years, her children suffered, her second marriage suffered, and she was still miserable.

One day, she picked up her old Bible, dusted it off, and began to read. Somewhere in the middle, God opened her hardened heart to see that He was real, that He still loved her, and that He had a purpose for her life, if she'd only give her heart to Him completely.

Her current releases in the Legacy of The Kings Pirates series include:The Restitution, The Reliance, and The Redemption



ABOUT THE BOOK
When Mademoiselle Dominique Dawson sets foot on the soil of her beloved homeland, England, she feels neither the happiness nor the excitement she expected upon her
return to the place of her birth. Alone for the first time in her life, without family, without friends, without protection, she now faces a far more frightening prospect, for she has come to the country she loves as an enemy-a spy for Napoleon.

Forced to betray England or never see her only brother alive again, Dominique has accepted a position as governess to the son of Admiral Chase Randal, a harsh man, still bitter over the loss of his wife. Will Dominique find the strength she needs through God to follow through with the plan to rescue her brother? Will Chase find comfort for his bitter heart in God's arms and be able to love again?

And what new deceptions will they both find in France when they arrive to carry out their plan?

MY REVIEW:
Ahhhh! My heart! It is so full! Naturellement! For the past two days I have been transported to the home of Admiral Chase Randall and introduced to the gentle Dominiqe Dawson – London, England, 1803. M.L. Tyndall has drawn me into an alluring relationship…one of intrigue, suspense, taut emotions and secret intentions. When Admiral Randall brings Miss Dawson into his home as a governess, he has unknowingly opened the door for change to come into his heart and life following the death of his wife. But there is much more beneath the surface of Miss Dawson’s meek exterior.

For you see, she has pledged to rescue her brother – and only living relative – from the hands of Lucien Bonaparte on the eve of the Napoleonic Wars. As certain death awaits her brother, Miss Dawson attempts to spy for the French and betray those for whom she has come to care for deeply. Through it all, Miss Dawson displays a very real and humble faith and a desire to understand exactly what God wants her to do in such disturbing circumstances. There are so many breathtaking moments throughout this journey! Each chapter ends with such boldness that I often found myself sucking in my breath – only to exclaim out loud as I began a new chapter. Such moments of suspense and wonder!!

M.L. Tyndall gives a whole new meaning to historical romance! This story is rich with restrained passion, believable plot twists, realistic and humbling struggles of faith and heartfelt cries to the Father who holds us all in the palm of His mighty hands. Do NOT miss this fantastic journey!! I am so thrilled to have discovered this exciting author and I eagerly look forward to reading more of her work! Purchase your own copy here today!
