Echo In The Wind by Regan Walker is a historical romance set in the year 1784. America has just won its independence and left the English and French economies in shambles. Enter Lady Joanna West, sister to a peer of the realm, compassionate and willing to smuggle to help the poor in West Sussex. The smuggling operation she leads has kept food on the tables of the common folk, but unfortunately, it has brought on the wrath of a government cheated of taxes. When a smuggling operation goes wrong, it is left to the mysterious French privateer, Jean Donet, Comte de Saintonge, to rescue Lady Joanna. From the first moment they met, there was a strong attraction and now circumstances have contrived to bring them together.

Echo In The Wind is the second book in the Donet Trilogy, set in a period just before the French revolution. Regan Walker paints a vivid picture of the times. The reader will appreciate the dire conditions of the commoner both in England and France. I expect there will be many memorable lessons to learn from reading this romance series. I loved the two main characters. Jean is a French noble who turned his back on his heritage for the sake of the woman he loved and, because of it, he learned what it was like to be poor. And the heroine wants to make a difference in the lives of those she cares for. The secondary characters add depth to the story to make a truly pleasurable read.
