About the Book
Title: To Tame The Wind (Agents of the Crown Trilogy #0)
Author: Regan Walker
Release Date: May 9, 2015
Genre: Historical Romance, Fiction, Sea Stories
Paris 1782… AN INNOCENT IS TAKEN
All Claire Donet knew was the world inside the convent walls in Saint-Denis. She had no idea her beloved papa was a pirate. But when he seized Simon Powell’s schooner, the English privateer decided to take the one thing his enemy held most dear… her.
A BATTLE IS JOINED
The waters between France and England roil with the clashes of Claire’s father and her captor as the last year of the American Revolution rages on the sea, spies lurk in Paris and Claire’s passion for the English captain rises.
This is the prequel to the Agents of the Crown Trilogy but can be read as a stand alone.
I would give this novel 100 stars. It is such a shame that I cannot give it more than five because this is one of my favorites of 2015.
Author Regan Walker knows how to transport you to the time she’s depicting. There is drama, intelligence, action, mystery, and full fledged romance. The characters are riveting and explosive including banter so entertaining that I couldn’t seem to put it down.
“To Tame the Wind” is the prequel to her Agents of the Crown Trilogy. This book takes you to England and France during the time of the American War of Independence. France, at one time, was a strong ally with the colonies when it struggled against England.
This read took me to a very fascinating era, where I got to feel and explore how it would have been aboard a ship. This is a “captor / captive” story, or in other words the hero steals the heroine away. This is why I loved every minute reading these pages. Our characters struggle back and forth amongst one another with witty banter thanks to the headstrong and spunky heroine.
They are from two different countries which do not get along at all. These lovers are suppose to not like one another, but it isn’t long before they cannot fight their feelings and their passion takes over.
Needless to say, YES, I would recommend this book to family, friends, and strangers I barely know. I only recommend books I truly love and believe in. Regan Walker has proven to be one of the best authors in the game. I mean it.
This novel will make you mad… that it can’t keep going. I can continue to read this over and over and not get tired of it. So I cannot wait for the next installment in this Agents of the Crown Trilogy. Bring it on and I will be the first one in line to PREORDER it. I am so glad I was able to indulge in this book and I will be paying attention so I can buy the next one.

About the Author
I didn’t start out as a writer of romance, and becoming a bestselling author on Amazon was only a dream when I first began writing romance. But dreams do come true.
Although I loved to write stories as a child, by the time I got to college, at the urging of my professors, I became a lawyer. But after years of serving clients in private practice and several stints in high levels of government, I decided it was time for a change. And I have never looked back. Through my work, I had come to love international travel and meeting new people. I also gained a feel for the demands of the “Crown” on its subjects. Hence, when I turned to writing historical romances (the kind of romance I love to read), it seemed natural that my first novels and stories would be all about a demanding Prince Regent who thinks of his subjects as his private talent pool—and so was born the Agents of the Crown.
So far, there is a trilogy and the prequel, To Tame the Wind, to be published in May 2015.
As I was writing novels set in the Regency period, I had this idea for a medieval romance that would explore how a spirited daughter of an English thegn would feel about being one of the conquered, her body and her lands given to a fierce Norman knight… and so was born The Red Wolf’s Prize and the Medieval Warriors series.
As for the personal side, I live in San Diego with my wonderful Golden Retriever “Link.” I have one son who is a young entrepreneur and, though he looks like a Highlander of old–tall, dark and handsome–he would never read a romance novel. So like a man, no?
