Smuggling may be de rigueur for some along the Norfolk coast in 1815, but it isn't the usual activity of noble women. Not so for Kathryn "Kit" Cranmer--she yearns for adventure and excitement. Posing as a young boy, Kit is named leader of a ragtag gang of smugglers. Her wits and courage make her a natural leader. But the Norfolk coast is small, and smuggling provides the only lucrative means of support for most of the people who live there. As leader of her small band of smugglers, Kit finds herself pitted against Captain Jack, the head of a rival gang, when the groups compete for the same goods. Jack is infamous for his reputation, but Kit can't resist his charms and they enter into a love affair that is as tempestuous as the rocky coast on which their gangs fight.

Sure, Laurens is the queen of the panting, highly explicit sex scene, but this book took even that to the point of ridiculousness. Not that that's too hard to do. My biggest beef with this book is that the strong, independent heroine became a total wimp every time the hero came near her. Their relationship was about sex not love; I can't see them making it as a lifetime couple. Jack always has to have the upper hand and Kit always gives in the moment he touches her.
The first books in the Cynster series are Laurens' best -- you know, the ones before she starts getting repetitious.
Sensuality aside, I really liked the story! Lady Kit is fresh and alive. On a midnight ride,dressed as a lad, aboard her fabulous Arabian mare Delia, she inadvertently saves a small smugglers gang from being caught by the revenue men and becomes their leader, unbeknownest to them that she is a woman! After a few well devised and successful smuggling ventures, she runs into Captain Jack and becomes engaged with him in, of all things, a sword fight! Still disguised as a lad, Captain Jack is wondering why the slight lad is giving him uneasy thoughts.
Well, and so it goes. The story is really quite good. Quite a lot of interaction (sex) between the two main characters, once Captain Jack figures out who Young Kit is. I love the strength and arrogance of Captain Jack, who really has a way of taming the beautiful, wild and passionate Lady Kit - very steamy sex scenes.
If this was Ms. Laurens debut novel, it is no wonder she went on to such great success with her later entries! A definite keeper and one to be re-read and savoured again, and again.

I love Stephanie Laurens but I haven't been able to do more than skim this book. It has been pointed out to me that this is a reprint and so was probably written before her... Read morePublished on Aug. 1 2002
The writing talent is very good but... the characters hardly ever talked!!All of you 4-5 starers.Think about it. Read morePublished on Aug. 24 2001 by C. M. Harris
The Cornish smugglers fascinate me as much as the Scottish reivers. Of course it wouldn't be complete without a young woman trying to fool all into thinking she is a man. Read morePublished on June 6 2001
