Waiting on Wednesday: Smuggler's Kiss by Marie-Louise Jensen

Smuggler's Kiss by Marie-Louise Jensen (Published by Oxford University Press, March 1, 2013)

"You're smugglers?" "That ain't what we call ourselves." His voice rumbled deep in his chest. "We're Gentlemen o' the Night.
In the autumn of 1720, Isabelle does something which changes her life for ever. But though Isabelle has fled, she is still trapped. If the secret of her previous life is revealed then the smugglers who have found her will not let her stay on board The Invisible - and she has nowhere else to go. To survive, Isabelle must help her captors - even though she detests what they do. But soon her principles are thrown into confusion, as she discovers that outwitting the King's Men fills her with excitement. Soon she finds herself becoming fiercely loyal to the crew - and to one mysterious smuggler in particular ...


I love Marie-Louise Jensen's young adult historical novels - they always have great stories and interesting (and usually unique!) historical settings. So I can't wait to read her next book.
