About this ebook

A Daring Masquerade...

In 1789 Philadelphia, on the eve of the first Presidential inauguration, charismatic Lion Hampshire aspires to a seat in the first Congress. In an effort to improve his reputation, he agrees to an arranged marriage with Virginia-bred Priscilla Wade. However, his fiancée’s headstrong lady’s maid, Meagan, is not who she seems to be and Lion’s carefully crafted future may be undone by his passion for the wrong woman…

Filled with Cynthia Wright’s hallmarks of warm intimacy, sensual romance, humor, adventure, and colorfully-drawn historical characters like Washington, Franklin, & Hamilton, TOUCH THE SUN is a shining achievement by a beloved author!

The setting, the characters, the story, the unpredictable plot twists and turns, basically everything about this wonderful novel is something to delight in! I read this book with ambivalence: wanting to know how Meagan and Lion achieve their HEA, yet never wanting the delightful story to end! A MUST READ! YOU ARE SERIOUSLY MISSING OUT ON ONE OF THE MOST WELL-WRITTEN AND ENGAGING ROMANCE NOVELS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THIS ONE! I would definitely give this 10 stars if I could.👌👏😊

Excellent story line, interesting characters, lots of sex, love, passion, intrigue and plot twists that I didn't expect...where I was unable to guess what was going to happen next, humor, likable characters, this is definitely a page turner!! The best Historical Romance I've read in a long long time!! Well worth your time and money to purchase this book!!

About the author

My career as a novelist began when I was twenty-three, with a phone call from New York announcing that CAROLINE would be published by Ballantine Books. Can you imagine my excitement? I went on to write 12 more bestselling historical romances set in Colonial America, Regency England & America, Medieval England & France, and the American West.

My novels have won many awards over the years, but what means most are readers' messages like this one: "When I read your books, I can't wait to turn the page, but never want the story to end." It's a thrill to have all my novels available, including my two newest, TEMPEST (The Raveneau Novels, Book 4) and SMUGGLER’S MOON (The Raveneaus in Cornwall, Book 1).

Today I live in northern California with my husband, Alvaro, in a 1930's Spanish cottage. When we aren't riding our tandem road bike or traveling in our Airstream, I love spending time with family, especially my two young grandsons.

I'd love to have you join me at my website:
