Publisher's Summary

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.

Captivating clean romance with a mystery to be solved

I really enjoyed this book! It has a hint of, “the Scarlet Pimpernel“ and the appeal of a Jane Austen novel. I was so hooked I stayed up reading half the night to finish it.while I doubt the reality of the situation would’ve played out quite in this way, it was enjoyable to read a story with likable, kind, and well-meaning characters. The bad guys, were seriously bad guys. And there is a little bit of violence in here, although not graphic for those of you who are concerned about that. The bottom line is, I loved reading it, and will read it again. It was an excellent clean romance, with a bit of mystery.

Great story

I loved the fictional story intertwined with actual history. Mysterious curves and twist, compassion and kindness prevail over evil. Wonderfully written.

You knew where the whole story was going...

I really didn't care much for this book. Part way through I could almost guess what was going to happen...sure enough...no big surprise. Basic story lines with no suspense or surprises.

Fantastic!

This book was wonderful. I was captivated from the first page and was so enveloped in the story I even had butterflies at the end! if that isn't the mark of a good story, I don't know what is. I enjoyed this title so much I also hope to by a copy of the book and would definitely listen to it again as well. this was my first Sian Ann Bessey novel, but it won't be my last!

What a happy surprise!!!

Sian Bessey and Noah Wall are new to me. Both are extremely talented...making this book a surprisingly good listen. The story was creative and well written, and the characters were strong and likeable. I will read the next book(s) in the series and look for other books by this author.

Hard to follow

Hard to follow the narrator with her voice. Would probably rather read this one myself.

NurseP

I just love the voice actor Noah Wall. Anything she reads is entertaining and you can get just lost in her telling of the story. Always a wonderful reprieve from stressful days at work.

Predictable

An easy listen and cute story, however it was very predictable from the start of the story.

Farfetched

A very unlikely story. An innkeeper's daughter serves in tables, slaves away cooking and cleaning but speaks with an upper crust accent. The narrator's performance was spoilt by numerous peculiar pronunciations.
