Books: The Ransome Trilogy

July 1814. The war with France is over,
but the battle of hearts has just begun.

From the ballrooms of Portsmouth across the Atlantic to the hunt for pirates in the Caribbean, it’s not just the seas that are tumultuous in this historical romance trilogy! Past loves re-emerge, conniving relatives scheme, and secrets add to the intrigue. Oh, and there are pirates in these waters too!

    Kaye – I didn’t see any other way to get a message to you so I defaulted to this. I wanted to apologize that I haven’t been able to post a review of Ransome’s Honor. I received the book late and quite tattered. I think it took a tumble in our postal service. Anyway, I wanted to assure you I am reading it now and will post to Amazon, Shelfari, as well as my own website and blog. So sorry for the delay. I just wanted to make sure you knew I wasn’t a slacker. Congratulations on the series. I will look forward to reading the other installments. Tamara

    I just bought Ransome’s Honor last night. I finished it just a few moments ago. I couldn’t put the book down. The thought of having to wait patiently for the next two books is daunting. Assuredly, I will eagerly devour them when they are published. Thank you for this heart-encouraging story. It not only brought me hope and happiness in the reading, but reminded me to take my cares to God. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I just LOVED Ransomes’ Honor! Can’t wait to read the rest! My daughter & I read many, many authors, just about anything and everything we get our hands on and now I can add your name to my favorites list! Thank you so much for using your gift to bless us all!

    I’m dying to read your third book. Couldn’t put down the last two. Congrats a million on all your success, Kiki!

      I’m guessing that since the second one in this series isn’t even finished yet, you meant to post this on the other series’ page. 😉 Thanks, dear, for the ‘grats!

    It is my enjoyable task to select books for our book club and after finishing “Ransome’s Honor this afternoon I will be adding it to our book club’s schedule. It’s a wonderful story and such a fresh approach to Regency romance! I so enjoyed it that I went to your website to find out when the next in the series will be released. Seeing the 2010 release date for the sequel was disappointing (I’m really looking forward to the continuing story of these characters and was hoping the wait would not be so far down the road), so I ordered “Stand In Groom” and “Menu For Romance” on Amazon expecting that your gift for storytelling will translate equally well to your contemporary books. I am very pleased to have discovered another wonderful writer and look forward to not only the 2 books now on order but also your future work!

    I loved Ransome’s Honor! I read it in one night, staying up until 2:30 in the morning because I had to finish it before I could sleep, but it was so worth it! I am so excited to read the next books and cannot wait until they come out. I am now going to go buy some of your other books because they sound fabulous as well.

    Ransome’s Honor caught my eye in the store & couldn’t put it down. Now friends have read it & am sending it to a friend in Alabama. Finally found you on the web.
    Would like to know what month the “Quest” will be out next year.
    You can really keep a person interested!!!

      Ransome’s Crossing (Book 2) will be out in July 2010, and Ransome’s Quest will be out in July 2011.

    Kaye, what an amazing gift God gave you!!
    I bought Ransome´s Honor for the kindle today in the afternoon and couldn´t put it down until I finished it. It´s the first of your books I read, but I don´t think it will be the last. I loved it !!
    Please, when book 2 comes out, put it also on kindle edition in Amazon, (I don´t know how does that work) but where I live I have no other way of getting your books.
    Thank you
    God bless,

    I really enjoyed Ransom’s Honor and Crossing. From your summary of book 3, you have me anxiously awaiting it’s release. Thanks for writing some great books. I am an avid reader, so I tend to be kind of picky, but these are definitely keepers.

    Hello. I just finished reading the first two books in the Ransome trilogy, again! I can’t wait to read the conclusion to this very enjoyable series. You do a great job holding the readers interest from start to finish. Thank you for a wonderful read!

    Dear Miss Dacus,
    I have just finished reading Ransome’s Quest! And it was absolutely thrilling! The conclusion to this series was so perfect that I was crying as I turned the last page!
    I first discovered Ransome’s Honor while perusing a bookstore simply looking for something to keep me entertained. Now, having completing the story, I feel as if I have lost a close friend! I can not wait to purchase and read more of your books!
    Thank you for sharing your gift,


  28. Monday, September 5, 2011 7:32 pm

    I really enjoy your books. I started with Stand-in Groom, then I read A Case for Love, and I just finished Love Remains! They all had great story-lines and I could not put them down. I cannot wait to read another!

    I love books that instantly drag me in to their story. The Ransome trilogy was great a read, exciting and adventurous, and I can’t wait to read your others. Keep them coming….
