"Lose yourself in the perfect Romance by a perfect author!" ~ BERTRICE SMALL, New York Times Bestselling Author

~The year is 1783, and rakish Alexandre Beauvisage is returning from the Revolutionary War when he discovers Caroline, unconscious in the Connecticut woods. Dressed as a boy, she has no memory of her past. Against his better judgment, he takes the lovely foundling with him to his home in Philadelphia and finds his life increasingly complicated as the fiery attraction between them builds and Caro's dangerous past reaches out to her.

CAROLINE is Cynthia Wright's unforgettable debut novel and is on keeper shelves worldwide. The story of a confirmed rake and an innocent, spirited young woman, it is filled with sensual romance, evocative history, memorable characters, and the joy of true love.

"The First Lady of Colonial American romance breathes life, passion, and vibrant historical details into every page. Magic, sensitivity, and humor have made CAROLINE a classic historical romance for more than 3 decades!" ~ Kathe Robin, RT BOOK REVIEWS

Book 6
An outrageous masquerade fraught with passion and peril...

 ~ When renegade Irishman Ryan Coleraine is persuaded to accompany the adventurous Raveneau family to Regency London to spy for America during the War of 1812, he discovers that he must not only pretend to be their son… but also a fop! Meanwhile, Lindsay Raveneau, a lovely and independent bluestocking, finds herself with a "brother" who challenges and arouses her in the most unsettling ways...

Danger, intrigue, and forbidden desire mount as Ryan and Lindsay carry their daring charade to the elegant drawing rooms of Regency society. Adding to the tensions are Lindsay’s parents – André and Devon Raveneau from SILVER STORM – who must attempt to chaperone their daughter and her "brother" under their own roof!

SURRENDER THE STARS is pure delight – deliciously sensuous, humorous, and vibrant with the magic of love. Cynthia Wright has written another "keeper!"

WINNER of the K.I.S.S. HERO AWARD from ROMANTIC TIMES MAGAZINE

~ 1814: Grey St. James, Viscount Altburne, has escaped from Napoleon's prison on the rocky isle of Mont St. Michel. Desperate and dangerous, he is a far cry from the rakish nobleman who broke hearts in Regency London.

In her uncle Nicholai's French chateau, Natalya Beauvisage is writing a novel. At 26, she is beautiful but hardly marriageable, for she is devoted to being an author. However, when a potently attractive stranger appears to hold her at knifepoint, Natalya thrills to a flesh-and-blood man. 

Grey must escape from France and Natalya longs to return to America, so they form an unlikely alliance, traveling together in disguise. Natalya is caught up in a passionate fantasy that surpasses any she could imagine, but Grey's heart is imprisoned by dark secrets that must be uncovered before he can love again...

Book 1
“Looking for a hero to sweep you off your feet? Look no further…” ~ Kathe Robin, ROMANTIC TIMES MAGAZINE

In 1864 Columbia, California, the gold rush is over. Spirited Katie MacKenzie helps her father run a saloon and writes articles for the local newspaper about the Griffin, a Robin Hood-style highwayman who robs the unscrupulous mine owners and gives back to the townspeople. 

Roguish Jack Adams, an adventurer with a dark secret, rides into the sleepy Sierra town one summer day and changes everything.

A powerful attraction smolders and burns between Jack and Katie despite their efforts to resist, but when a tragic death occurs during one of the Griffin's stagecoach robberies, Katie is haunted by thoughts of revenge. 

Can Jack reconcile his life in Columbia with his surprising true identity in San Francisco… and will this couple find their way to happiness in spite of the dangerous secrets that separate them? Journey back to Civil War-era California with Jack, Katie, and historical characters like Samuel Clemens for a passionate & adventurous romance that will keep you turning the pages to the very end!

REVIEW:
“BRIGHTER THAN GOLD delivers what Cynthia Wright fans expect from her unforgettable romances – a tender, sweet, exciting, and sensual story of a love that is so strong nothing can harm it. She skillfully combines accurate historical details, brilliantly evoking the post-goldrush era in Columbia and San Francisco, along with an irresistible deception & disguise romance!” ~ ROMANTIC TIMES MAGAZINE
