  1. I am sad or I should rather write disappointed So much, that I can t believe that I have read it to the end The main idea, the narration and the beginning was very promising The heroine the leader of smuggling group, the hero a government agent who want to find this leader What could go wrong Moreover, unlike some other reviewers I liked Mabel, Stamford, Rose Mary, Andrew and Jem But for me, something went wrong I was bored during most of the smuggling parts I wasn t excited Although I am not a [...]


  2. I have enjoyed a lot of Joan Smith books, but it s hard to separate teh wheat from the chaff She wrote SO many, and there aren t many reviews available here or on This one was long for her , and I didn t like the hero He spent most of the time pretending to be underbred The unerlying plot was interesting than the romance, but not interesting enough to sustain the story I got through it, but I was barely rooting for them Decent writing for the genre but I want to enjoy the romance and it didn t [...]


  3. Its written in the same first person narrative as Lace for Milady I recommned and this also has view spoiler smuggling hide spoiler as a plot But in this case the heroine view spoiler runs the smuggling operation hide spoiler But I didnt like her,even though like most of JS heroines she has a mind of her own read stubborn In this case it only added to my annoyance.



  4. I agree with Sarah Bean s review in that I really disliked the hero in this book I expect some competence in my Regency heros and besides failing miserably at going undercover as a shop assistant dropping in and out of accents, really He wasn t particularly intelligent or all that charming either Further, once he confessed to Mabel, he become really presumptuous about their marriage without asking her and waiting for a proper response It got me really irritated The plot was far interesting thou [...]


  5. This is a delightful romp, as the heroine, a seemingly proper miss, sister to the vicar of a small town, has been running a smuggling ring in order to help the town s sagging economy They re doing fine until the hero arrives to investigate.


  6. I loved this Mabel is quite the anti heroine, leading a band of smugglers as Miss Sage and outwitting the gentleman who is sent to catch her.




  7. I love that this story has such a unique plotline Definitely not the same titled but poor young miss and rich rake preferably a duke meet, spit fire at one another for 60% of the book, then decide they can t live without each other The End The heroine is funny, the hero believable, and the story moves right along I also appreciated the vocabulary the author used several words I needed to look up I love it when that happens.Two of my teen daughters have also read this and enjoyed it Clean.


  8. LOVED this cat and mouse game In this case, the first person POV not only worked, it was actually ESSENTIAL for the thrill to work Maybe the actual romance took a back seat, the hero is not your dashing, romantic type, but I greatly enjoyed following Mabel second guessing everything and having a fine time of her life and feel if capable and romantic fellow took Wicklow s position the story might not have worked out half well It is one of my Joan Smith favorites.


  9. Well, I enjoyed this one despite the annoyance of others, although I understand their perspective I was in the mood for this type of story and it delivered It is hard to believe that Williams Wicklow could have been so duped but he was a man in love I enjoyed that Mabel was a strong individual who played a non traditional role as the ringleader of a smuggling ring It kept my interest as Wicklow and Miss Anderson matched wits The suspense was pretty good throughout.


  10. This is a fun read Usually when I read romance it s just for the romance and authors can t always add in side stories without subtracting from the quality, but I loved this one The smuggling kept things interesting and it wasn t too predictable Some good dialogue too, I think I m becoming a Joan Smith fan I loved it.


  11. I found EMH to be erratic She controlling, he often seems a halfling Then not Then again Ending with not The book is too long, somber, and one note the perils of smuggling when it was a hanging offense For me 2 1 2, just rounding up.


  12. This is one of my favorite romances Whenever I spot a copy, I buy it and give away to share Last Christmas, my great aunt said she loved the story I think the cleverness of Miss Sage really wins this story.



  13. Enjoyable regency romance with a twist the heroine is actually working with smugglers while the love interest is set on catching them.
