My Review:

This is a delightful, engaging Regency romance featuring Rose Clairmont, the youngest daughter who has spent most of her life in the Cornish family estate, away from her family. Here she’s been involved in nefarious activities to help support the villagers and servants – including smuggling. As a child she had lots of puppy fat but her family believe she is still grossly overweight and unattractive so her debutante ball has maintaining that disguise. However, a falling stranger, an unexpected proposal, family machinations, smugglers, pirates and surprises all play a part in this young lady’s life but she’s in danger, even if she doesn’t know who from!

It is great to have such a determined and deceptive young lady as the lead in this intriguing romance. There are plenty of times she thwarts to plans of her father and brothers, none of whom really know her or what she’s like. She’s definitely not your typically portrayed meek, obedient young lady, though she does play the role successfully. This is a fun historical romance, a great addition to the series and one that I believe fans of historical romances with a strong leading lady will thoroughly enjoy – I know I did!

Thanks to Tule Publishing for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.

Synopsis:

When her double life catches up with her, she must use all of her wits to survive.  

Craving freedom and adventure, Rose Clairmont is far more interested in operating her secret smuggling activities at her father’s estate than looking for a respectable husband. So when a handsome man with ties to piracy stumbles over her during her debutante ball, Rose congratulates herself on being ruined and expects to be sent home in disgrace…until he agrees to marry her.

Forever besmirched by his father’s pirate reputation, Anthony Germaine wishes to uphold the law as a Bow Street Runner. When he sneaks into a ball hoping to join, he’s tossed out and falls on a woman hiding in the garden. Society is abuzz and Anthony, despite his roots, is a gentleman. But when he visits her estate to court his bride-to-be, he realizes there’s more to Rose than meets the eye. And she’s in danger.

Suddenly, playing it safe no longer appeals and Anthony contemplates an adventure that will prove as dangerous to his life as it is to his heart.

    Sound like a fun book, but then this is my favorite genre, so I like most historical romances. 🙂
