The Blue Enchantress
Betrayed by the man she longed to marry, Hope Westcott is about to be auctioned off as a slave to the highest bidder on an island in the Caribbean . After enduring a difficult childhood in an unloving home, Hope?s search for love and self-worth have led her down a very dangerous path. All she ever wanted was to find true love and open an orphanage where she could raise children with all the love she never experienced as a child.? But how can a woman with a sordid past ever hope to run an orphanage, let alone attract the love of an honorable man?
Determined to overcome the shame of his mother?s past, Nathaniel Mason worked for many years to build his own fleet of merchant ships in an effort to finally acquire the respect of Charles Towne society. Ignoring the call of God on his life to become a preacher, he forges ahead with his plans for success at a distant port in the Caribbean , when he sees a young lady he knows from Charles Towne being sold as a slave. In an effort to save Hope, he is forced to sell one of his two ships, only to discover that her predicament was caused by her own bad behavior. Angry and determined to rid himself of her as soon as possible, Nathaniel embarks on a journey that will change the course of his life.

Book Review: The Blue Enchantress is book two in the Charles Towne Belles series. The first book, The Red Siren, was wonderful so I was really excited to see this one of the review list.
This book is about a young woman who is ironically named Hope. She finds herself on the auction block being sold as a slave. She stands there knowing that her hope of one day owning an orphanage where she can show homeless children the love she never had was going up in smoke.
A young man walks by who recognizes her and decides to purchase her to rescue her from what is doomed to be a horrific life. Putting the two of them together is like oil and water. They are forced to face what they are trying to run from in each of their lives. Like holding up a mirror in front of each of their faces.
The question is will they be able to put their past behind them to find a new future?
I am just LOVING this series!!
