The thing about Stephanie Laurens is that you generally know what you're getting going in: generally interchangeable, arrogant, possessive heroes and generally interchangeable, but fairly tolerable heroines. The stories will never surprise you. The heroines are unmemorable, but at least they're neither doormats nor (shudder) "feisty minxes."* And if the books are, to a one, entirely humorless, at least the writing is more than competent.
But this? I don't know what thi ...more
They meet in a clash of swords, drenched in the moonlight of Britain's rugged eastern coast: Captain Jack, his handsome features etched in silver and shadow, his powerful physique compelling "Kit" Cranmer to surrender. He is her dream lover come vividly alive, and his command of the smuggling gang is absolute. His all-knowing gaze penetrates her disguise as the "lad" leader of a rival gang with frightening ease - and his "punishment" with kisses leaves her maidenly modesty in tatters. ...more

CAPTAIN JACK'S WOMAN operates as a prequel to the Bastion Club series. It is the story of Kathryn "Kit" Cranmer who returns home to her grandfather's estate after six unsuccessful years on the marriage mart in London. Kit is feisty, defies convention and is ungovernable. Within days she ends up becoming the leader of a small band of smugglers. Kit has a habit of riding in the guise of a boy and no one suspects that she is a lady.
Her smuggling activities bring her to t ...more
There's plenty of adventures with smugglers and anti-smugglers hanging around. There's plenty of deceit with the anti-smuggling investigation led by Lord Hendon, masquerading as Captain Jack, leader of one of the local gangs. Notwithstanding the leader of another local gang he wanted to control, who was a lady in disguise of a youth. Well those adventures clearly reminded me of some of the best Georgette Heyer's books.
I really liked the cha ...more
I loved this book when I read it for myself a few years ago, and now I love it even more after having it read to me by the delightful McAllister Lee!
Kit is just my kind of gal, independent and a touch wild, with plenty of sass!! I love everything about her, she easily grabs you from the beginning and makes you love her. Captain Jack is the perfect match for this hoyden!! He is the perfect man for her, even though he wants to protect her, he ...more

The hero, Captain Jack, is also known as Lord Jonathan Hendon. By profession he works for the British government tracking down spies. The heroine, Kathryn Cranmer, also known as Kit, disguises herself as a young man and becomes a smuggler on a very small scale. She is quite adventurous and reckless. Captain Jac ...more
The female character, Kit, was in my opinion a wild girl who does what she likes and really stands strongly for her views and opinions. Yet, when tempted with sex with the great captain Jack she completely seems to lose her own norms and values. I could have understood this (though it would have annoyed me) once, getting swept up ...more
Stars: Overall 4 Narration 5 Story 4
Throughout history, England has long been a site for smugglers and privateers: an island with miles of coastline and small villages where making a living is difficult, the sea has always managed to provide a living. Additionally, crown-sponsored privateers, and merchants with fleets of ships working both sides of the law were responsible for large fortunes being lost and won. Much like bootlegging on this side of the world, often the luxury it ...more
First published: 1997
Length: 374 pages
Setting: Norfolk, 1811 (Regency).
Sex: Explicit. Reasonably frequent. Varied. Much of it is with no expectation of marriage (he intends to, at best, make her his mistress and is actively looking for a suitable bride).
He's a control freak who, while enjoying her wildness and impetuosity when he thought her his mistress, acts to stem it and force her to submit to his will as his wife. To the extent he takes away her freedom, her horse a ...more
buku ke2 SL yg aku baca dan memang WOW.. Hot banget ^_*
untuk karakternya sendiri aku suka Kit, meski si jack ngga pernah mau mendiskusikan segala sesuatu padanya, tp setidaknya Kit ttp percaya Jack yg biasanya di novel2 HR bisa menimbulkan perselisihan fatal :P
bagian yg lucu, pas si Kit kabur ke London... die ngarep banget di jemput sama Jack, tp Jack nya ttp cool kwkwkwkw
Kit's portrayed as a smart willful woman but her inability to think when Jack touches her and his use of it to manipulate her are ridiculous.
I won't repeat the same negatives already expressed by others but will instead say 'ditto'!!!
Once in London, Stephanie ...more
