The Red Siren
by
M.L. Tyndall


Faith Westcott, a fiery redhead, is a lady by day and a pirate by night. How long can she maintain this dual identity before she's caught red handed?

Dajon Waite, who scours the Carolina coast, expunging it of pirates and smugglers, is a more-than-capable captain in the British Royal Navy. But when asked to take on the guardianship of Faith and her two sisters, he finds himself in deep water. Having vowed to avoid women, what will he do when he begins falling for Faith?

Can the all-consuming love of a godly captain redeem a not-so-ladylike pirate?

Female pirates! What’s not to like???

The hero in this book, Dajon, is my favorite hero of all of M.L. Tyndall’s stories that I’ve read. Kent from The Restitution used to be my favorite, but Dajon reminds me of Captain Wentworth from Jane Austen’s Persuasion—passionate, strong, a solid naval officer, a strong Christian. Yet he has a softer side that comes out and I just love the man (don’t tell Captain Caffeine! Oy!).

Faith was a bit hard for me to like at first, because I didn’t really like some of the things she did to poor Dajon. But she has a strong, emotional reason for what she does, which makes her more sympathetic as a character, and I respected her for her love for her sisters and her determination to save them.

The setting in Charles Towne is excellent. I love how the author wove in the cultural aspects of the city as well as the naval presence in the port.

This book is completely safe for high school girls to read, although there are a few things hinted at that some mothers might not want their junior high school girls to read about.

I’m really looking forward to the next installment in the series about Hope! She was my favorite of the three sisters.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
