    Regan Walker has to be one of my favourite authors in the historical fiction genre Her writing takes you to another time and place, with beautiful settings and characters that capture the imagination.From fearsome Medieval warriors with hearts of gold to dashing Georgian pirates, Regan excels in creating memorable fictional heroes Jean Donet may well be her best yet or at least my personal favourite Part sea captain part nobleman, he s the perfect gentleman with an intense and dangerous streak Ruthless with those who cross him he has a reputation across the continent, yet he has a passionate soul and would protect those he loves with his life.Then of course there are the unconventional female characters Always feisty and independent, Regan s women are a force to be reckoned with On the first page of Echo in the Wind we are introduced to Lady Joanna West, a high born lady moonlighting as a male smuggler Unbeknownst to her, the dark and mysterious captain providing the goods is none other than Jean Donet, who sees right through her disguise.Joanna is reluctant to marry into the ton, fearing a life of boredom and an unfaithful husband She is perfectly content to remain a spinster smuggler, until Donet turns her world upside down The two characters were wonderfully matched they had chemistry from their very first meeting and I loved how the story was told from both of their perspectives As in Regan s other works, even the secondary characters in this story are well defined, making the fictional world they inhabit all the three dimensional I particularly liked Jean s quartermaster Emile and would love to find out about him.The historical details in this novel have been impeccably researched It was a time of uncertainty, and with the chapters set in Paris you can almost feel the undercurrent of the impending French revolution Regan says in her author s notes that she hopes readers will feel as if they have travelled back in time while reading Echo in the Wind, and I most certainly did From the rugged English coast to the opulence of Versailles I was transported utterly into Jean and Joanna s world, and I didn t want to leave I was very pleased to read therefore, that there will be another novel in the Donet series the story of Jean s ward Zoe I can only hope and assume that Joanna and Jean will make an appearance, as there is certainly to come from them Full of passion, danger and adventure Echo in the Wind is a novel of seizing life, and love, and following your heart.Review also posted here

    Jean Donet is a self made man, disowned by his father for marrying the woman he loved, Jean walked away from his aristocratic life without a second thought To support his wife, he turned to the sea, as a privateer, spy and smuggler When his wife dies, Jean is sure that he will never love again, he puts all his passion into his work, but a chance meeting with a smuggler and the death of his father and brother will change everything.Lady Joanna West is the sister of the Earl of Torrington and she too has known her share of loss, when she learns the villagers on her brother s estate are engaged in free trade, she jumps in to help She formally meets Jean at a reception for the Prime Minister she is attracted to him, even though he is much older than her and has a married daughter not much younger than Joanna Jean immediately recognizes Joanna as the smuggler he met and becomes fascinated with her When another smuggling run brings them together and things go wrong, a revenue ship tries to capture them And in the midst of the battle, Joanna is shot, leaving Jean no choice but to take Joanna with him He cares for her wounds and insists on taking her to France to his surgeon But once they arrive, he is not ready to let her go.Together they will journey to his family estate and on to Paris trying to figure out they mystery of his father and brother s deaths Along the way, Jean will discover that his heart didn t die with his beloved wife, but with war on the horizon, can love blossom between them I thought this was a very good story, but the first half is a bit wordy and there is a lot of information that is interesting, but really not necessary to the story, once they get to France, things pick up and don t stop until the very end The characters are likeable, the writing is good, the love scenes are mild and the ending is sweet This is the second book in the Donet Series, but it can be read as a standalone with no problems I am voluntarily leaving a review for an e book that was provided to me.

    Actually, this wonderful story could easily be read after To Tame the Wind in the Agents of the Crown series, because the hero, Jean Donet, is the father of the heroine, Claire, in To Tame the Wind It is a marvelous romantic adventure with Joanna, the spinster daughter of an English Earl and the widower, Jean Donet, a former pirate privateer who has inherited a great holding with vineyards in France from his deceased father and older brother I do not want to give away here how they first met, but it was an exciting chance meeting that later became a love affair and second chance romance for the hero A truly swoon worthy historical romance by a most excellent author

    To read a Regan Walker novel is like taking a step back in time Her excellent writing skill brings the sights, sounds, and smells to life not to mention her extensive research into the history of the time pre French Revolution Echo in the Wind is no exception.Jean Donet, disgraced son of a French comte, pirate, privateer, loved his wife deeply and mourns her loss still Wealthy on his own he now finds himself comte de Saintonge after the death of his father and brother with all the responsibilities that go with that distinguished title including the care of his young niece.To satisfy his love for the sea and a yearning for adventure Jean continues by smuggling goods into England and evading the Excise men Little does he realize his latest run and encounter with the young lad in charge will change his life in ways he thought were lost to him forever.Lady Joanna West, sister to an Earl, has no desire to marry for anything less than love With no prospects of that happening Joanna turns all her energy into helping the poor of the local village The method she chooses helping the local smuggling ring bring free goods into England and using the profits to help the poor.Little does she realize the dark pirate from her last run before returning to London for the season, a chance meeting with the enigmatic comte de Saintonge, and a run in with Excise men sets her on a course that will forever change her life.With a fifteen year age difference, the animosity between the English and French, the difference in religion, and the love for a dead woman prevent a Happily Ever After Or like an echo in the wind will love come a second time

    Set in England and France in 1784, Echo in the Wind is the second book in what was to be Ms Walker s Donet Duology and which has now become a trilogy The first book To Tame the Wind served as both the start of a new series and the prequel to her Agents of the Crown series They can be read as standalone although I strongly believe the experience is even better when one reads both series as they complement each other and bring on interesting details.Historically accurate, filled with well defined characters both main and secondary and I dare anyone not to like Franklin, aka Ben , resident cat on La Reine Noire, Jean Donet s main ship , with a dash of mystery, danger, and adventure along with some humoristic moments and beautifully turned sentences, this is a story that will stay with you for a long time after you finish the book The historical aspect is particularly interesting, so much so that I found myself digging into the time period described in the book which is always a plus for me when I read a book This book is definitely a well written page turner.
