The Noble Smuggler by Sian Ann Bessey

48979477. sy475


Despite living at her father’s inn her entire life, Elizabeth Doyle has always managed to avoid involvement with the smugglers who frequently gather there. Until now. When a handsome smuggler is brought to her with dire injuries, Elizabeth risks everything to hide him—completely unaware that the wounded man is not who he appears to be.

When an opportunity arises to infiltrate the notorious smuggling gang he believes caused his father’s death, Jonas Ainsworth, the Viscount Langton, pretends to be one of them. But when he is wounded midcharade, Jonas’s life is placed in the hands of an unlikely savior: a smuggler’s daughter. Forced to flee before his wounds have fully healed, he does not think he will ever see her again—until she appears on his doorstep, seeking safe haven. Divided by their social standings yet united in their mutual desire to expose the leader of the smuggling ring, Jonas and Elizabeth are undeniably drawn to each other. Neither realizes, however, that they are dangerously close to uncovering explosive secrets from the past—secrets that will alter the course of their lives forever.


I loved this book so much that I didn't want it to end! I really enjoyed the adventures that this book had to offer. 
The way the author used her words to describe the scenery I felt like I was there right along with Elizabeth who quickly became my favorite character. 
Elizabeth was someone that I greatly admired from afar. She was determined, smart and what I most liked about her was that she had some backbone to her. I guess you had to be in those days and times. The 17oo's to be exact. 
Jonas wasn't too far behind. He's awesome because he's kind, caring and he does his job pretty darn good in my opinion! My hero! Too bad he isn't a real person. He can have my back anytime! 
This book won't let you put it down until you're finished because there's just so much going on and the author has covered some subjects very well. 
Her writing is just so exciting!The characters were just wonderful to be around but of course there's some unsavory ones as well but hey, that's what makes a great story isn't it?
