I found the story interesting on many levels. It was quite evident to me that Ms. Feather has done her research on the varying aspects of Cornish smuggling and London society. However, I was a bit put off by the use of ‘period vocabulary’; while necessary to a certain point, too much of it can be a bit confusing for the average reader.
Overall, the story moved along at a steady pace. The characters were quite complex. And I found myself trying to figure out what conflict could come next before the two decided to yield to their common interest: love.
Readers of this genre will not be disappointed.
