Smuggler's Lady Author:Jane Feather Merrie Trelawney's identity as the leader of a band of smuggler's is safely hidden by an air of sober respectability and dowdy widowhood, until the attentions of rakish Lord Rutherford threaten her perfect disguise. Reissue.
I really enjoyed this very different Lord and Lady romance. Merrie was a very different type of lady having spent her life in the Cornish coastal community. Really enjoyed her brothers and her hard to imagine smuggling lifestyle but it fit the story well and made for intriguing interest from the newly arrived Lord. Towards the end I felt a bit frustrated with the heroine for being so stubborn and irrational at times. I liked that I could not guess the ending at all and was happy the author finally made some sense out of two hard headed people!
