Book Description

On the surface, Fan Winslow appeared to be the prim and proper housekeeper of Feversham Hall. In actuality, she was secretly heading a notorious smuggling gang based off the rambling estate's stormy coast. The arrival of Feversham's new owner, Captain Lord George Claremont, however, threatened to ruin her thriving business.

Having lived down the shame his rakehell father had brought upon their family, George Claremont lived by his honor and the kingdom's laws. Dubbed the Silver Lord for his feats in battle as much as for his sterling reputation, the celebrated navy hero was duty bound to stop any and all illegal activity on his property…even if the villain was a mysterious beauty with eyes no man could resist. Would turbulent passion be enough to forever unite lovers on opposite sides of the law?

5.0 out of 5 stars Shades of "Frenchman's Creek" 24 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a nice twist on the regency-period historical romances that are so popular, with the characters involved with smuggling along the foggy coastline instead of going to Bath. Think Daphne Du Maurier instead of Georgette Heyer. Strong believable characters, with a minimum of nattering. You don't see many noble heros that are navy officers, which was a nice twist, and it's refreshing to have a heroine worrying about earning her living, too. Lots of plot twists kept me interested, and pretty decent love scenes. Good job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent romance 29 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Miranda Jarrett writes another superb romance in THE SILVER LORD. Her stories are always of the highest quality, and this one demonstrates why she has a great reputation for strong characters, convincing romance, and for sheer quality of writing. Fan Winslow is an independent, spirited heroine who hides the desperate secret of her smuggling activities from the hero, whose strength and confidence, and wry sense of humor, makes him very sexy. So far I've read just about everything that Ms. Jarrett has written, and I've enjoyed every one of her stories. Her characters are complex, sympathetic, and sexy, with convincing, fascinating motives and deep emotions, and her books are intelligently crafted. If you like high quality in romance, you'll love THE SILVER LORD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical romance at its best 29 April 2003
By "booklover2222" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I don't usually post reviews for books, but when I sawthe other one posted for this book, I had to post my own.We couldn't have read thesame books! Miranda Jarrett always writes a really good historical romance, adn thoughI was surprised to see her writing for Harlequin romances, the SILVER LORD is no exception. This book has wonderful characters, an unusual setting for a regency book,and plenty of action. She reminds me of Jo Beverly,another author I greatly admire and like. I would recccomend this book highly to anyone who is looking for a great read, and Jarret's other longer books, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 25 April 2003
By Dudete - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I barely finished reading this book. I read it only because hey I did spend money on it.
The book is boring, unrealistic at all, and did not move me at all.
Seems to me the words the characters spoke were forced and meaningless. The characters themselves were boring. She was too annoying and he was not male enough for me (now i do know its only a book but still) The transition from one point to another is very swift which I personally did not like.
Save your money and time and buy something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars not impressed..... 2 Aug. 2007
By retroredux - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sadly, Ms. Jarrett is starting to fall in my esteem for her as a writer.

After trying, and failing, to read another one of her Harlequin Historical series where it's the 3 daughters of a vicar that are running a gaming hell-yeah right-I tried this book since I'd already purchased it.

Again Ms. Jarrett is trying the "implausible heroine" storyline-the heroine is housekeeper of a derelict manor(vacant of a lord for 4 years), but also the head of a smuggling ring. If that's not bad enough, the hero, a blue blooded second son and naval captain who just made his fortune in the war, but comes to inspect the ramshackle home to consider purchasing it.

There ensues the most plausible aspect of the story-as the heroine, who remember is the housekeeper, shows the hero around the manor, insulting him and being very rude the entire time! So implausible for the time period! While I try not to be a stickler for Historical accuracy, or lack thereof-when you have an author who seems to go out of their way to do so in every Historical romance they write-then it's time to start looking for different authors to read.

No stars-I'd advise you skip this book.
