Smuggler’s Bounty ~ Vanessa Liebe
Elizabeth Thornton comes to live with her aunt in Cornwall upon the death of her parents. However, she soon suspects that her aunt is hiding some sort of secret. Elizabeth’s quest for the truth leads to danger, and trouble with the law, and a very handsome smuggler with a firm hand, who is as determined to keep Elizabeth safe as she seems to be to put herself in harm’s way.
William is growing tired of the smuggler’s life of danger and instability. If he can only finish his last run, he can give it all up. But he has a preventative officer hot on his heels who is determined to hang him. The lovely, Elizabeth is one more complication he does not need. Now he must avoid capture, and find time to discipline this woman with an appetite for adventure, who seems determined to steal his heart.
