Book Description

Oct. 1 1997 Bastion Club Novel

Bored by society's rules and strictures, Kathryn &"Kit" Cranmer yearns for adventure -- and she finds it on Britain's rugged eastern coast, dressed as a boy at the head of a rag-tag band of smugglers. But there is another who rules the night: the notorious Captain Jack, the ruthless leader of a rival gang who will allow no trespassers...and who stops Kit's breath with his handsome, etchedfeatures and powerful physique.

In no time, Captain Jack sees through Kit's brazen disguise -- and tempts her with kisses that compel the beautiful adventuress to surrender her cherished independence for nights of incomparable bliss. But her lover is much more than he seems -- a man of secrets and dangerous mystery -- and becoming Captain Jack's woman will carry Kit into a world of sensuous pleasures and unparalleled perils...and to new heights of excitement beyond anything she's ever dreamed.

Product Description

From Amazon

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not Laurens' best April 9 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Oh, dear. So many people recommended this book, saying that they had delayed reading it because of the cheesy title, but it was wonderful. In a word, no.
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.
Silly.
The first books in the Cynster series are Laurens' best -- you know, the ones before she starts getting repetitious.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites April 30 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love the way stephanie laurens writes. She is so talented at making you feel as though you are the main character. You hold your breath with they do and feel the love that they feel. I can see her characters in my mind and the scenery as I read. I have read plenty of romance novels. I don't read them because they are great literary masterpieces. I read them because they are entertaining and a wonderful way to wind down. Stephanie Laurens novels just seem to be one step above the average romance. Her characters remain true to form and their are no unexplained surprises thrown in or pieces just added to "fill space." This story of a strong female determined to be independent, but learning that being in love doesn't make you weak is truly a captivating novel. Two very strong, independent people meet and fall in love while helping out those less fortunate. Her characters are wild, care free, and generous. You can easily read the novel because you don't hate the lead characters. They don't do things out of the ordinary or outlandishly absurd. Her love scenes are discriptive without being x-rated. They are sensual and inspiring. Her adventure storyline keeps the novel moving. I highly recommend this novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story - Highly Sensual April 5 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read most of Stephnie Laurens work and it's still a toss-up to me as to which hero is the sexiest. Up til now, it was Sebastian in the Devil's Bride (Bar Cynster series), but Captain Jack (aka Lord Hendon) takes my breath away. On a scale of 1-10 for sensuality this is definitely a 10!
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Aug. 12 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At the beginning of the book, the main character, Kit, seems to finally be a heroine who has some backbone and is willing to stand up for herself. She dresses up as a boy so she can be the leader of a small group of smugglers and seems to have strong beliefs and morals (like against smuggling "human cargo"). But the minute she gets near "Captain Jack" she loses all rational thought. There isn't one decent conversation between her and him after he figures out she's a girl during the entire book because the minute they get near each other, she forgets everything except having sex with him. From the minute he touches her, her eyes glaze over and they end up in bed together (or on a table or the floor, or the ground...) You can't go thirty pages in the book without them making love. She never realizes her "Captain Jack" is really her neighbor Lord Hendon even though there's evidence of it right under her nose. Finally, she's shot, her grandfather finds out what she's been about and forces them to marry. The first thing her husband does is take away her favorite horse Delia, because she's "too fast and the grooms can't keep up with her" and gives Kit a old, slow, gentle mare instead. She tries to protest, but guess what, before she can voice her opinion, he gets near her, she loses all thought, and they end up in bed. After that, she quietly gives into his will, any time she doesn't like something he's done to change her life, he seduces her into shutting up about it. All the while, he's still been secretly leading their old group of smugglers, and smuggling spies even though he knows Kit would hate it. Although he has a good reason for it, he refuses to tell Kit what it is. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a love story..
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 more

This book is a disappointment in many ways. It begins rather well, but the characters are not allowed to evolve, and the plot - which could have been excellent - fails miserably... Read more
