Hounslow, 1768. Jack Blythe, heir to the Earl of Lampton, is a man with great expectations. So when his stagecoach is held up by a masked woman, brandishing a pistol and dressed as a gentleman of the road, he wholly expects to have his purse stolen. And when he senses something strangely familiar about the lovely little bandit, Jack also expects to win his cousin Rupert s wager by tracking her down first.
But as Jack and the highwaywoman enter into a swashbuckling game of cat and mouse, uncovering an intricate web of fiercely guarded family secrets, the last thing Jack expects to have stolen is his heart.
A little bit of drama, a little bit of suspense, a little bit of romance and a little bit of highway robbery and that is the mix of this book.
Cora is the highwayman's daughter and she robs people too. Her father needs medicine so she puts her life on the line. She is brave and all in all a cool heroine.
Jack is the man who gets robbed and he is obsessed with finding her. He, what to say, he was relentless in his search, but for good reasons in the end. The same can't be said about his cousin Rupert, oh I could not stand the guy!
Romance blossoms, but they are different classes, there are secrets and then there is the whole oh I robbed you thing.
A nice romance that I read fast.

That cover looks really awesome, and I like the sound of it. Maybe I'll finally find my way back to historical romance with this one.ReplyDelete
I hope so :) I really like HR cos it's light and nice, but this one is more than HR, but not historical so a mixDelete
This looks nice, I need to read romance novels by authors new to me.ReplyDelete

Oh it sounds nice, I like the sound of the 2 main characters! It's a new one for me I confess.ReplyDelete
Good :) And yes they were both goodDelete
