Jenna is the thief’s daughter, and Jack is a thief-taker. They were so well drawn that I could see them both in my imagination. I could see the rugged setting of the Cornish coast, too, although I have never been there. Great descriptive writing, but with a light touch.
Jenna and Jack first meet at a hanging, which sets the pace for the novel. Theirs is a tender love-story fraught with danger and suspicion. We have a cast of suitably nasty villains mixed up in the 18th century smuggling trade. Silas was a believable baddie, causing a rift which propelled the story forward to its exciting denouement.
This was a great read, and it deserves all its five stars. If you like your romance with a bit of adventure, you will love this book.
The story is one which kept my attention from start to finish and even though, it being a romance, you know what the outcome will be, there is nothing predictable about the story. It is fast moving and dramatic and you can't help rooting for both Jack and Jenna as they deal with the local smuggling community, law enforcement and Jenna's less than supportive brother, Silas
But this is romantic fiction in which we expect the hero and heroine to win through against even overwhelming odds - which they do. Jenna is a great heroine, spirited, smart and believable. Jack is the kind of hero I wish I could meet in real life. Jack and Jenna both have difficult choices to make and they work hard to deserve their happy ending. The thief-taker gets - well, I won't spoil the story!
Victoria's writing style is engaging. I read this novel over a couple of evenings but the second evening stretched into the early morning. I'm looking forward to Victoria's next story very much indeed.
