"brimming with romantic seafaring zest" * The Times * "Marie-Louise Jensen's deliciously readable new offering follows in the footsteps of Daphne du Maurier's classic Jamaica Inn." * The Times * "Marie-Louise Jensen has created a novel filled with historical detail and a strong heroine...Jensen's plot shines in this teen novel to provide a refreshing read; whether you like fiction or not, Smuggler's Kiss promises to captivate any imagination." * We Love This Book * "The characterisation is delightful in this exciting, adventure story..." * The Independent on Sunday * "I literally couldn't put it down and ended up reading the entire novel in one go. Marie-Louise Jensen has established herself as one of the foremost writers of historical fiction for young people and this latest novel can only enhance that reputation..." * The Scotsman * "...This is a very good story with real depth and a joy to read...this is a fine romantic story standing on its own merits, measured, well-written and with a real feel for the period and the women of its time." * Books for Keeps * "Bring me more smuggler romances!" * The Bookwitch * "This is a hugely enjoyable historical adventure with a brilliant narrator, a fantastic love interest and a really strong setting." * The Bookbag * "More of the gorgeous historical romance that Jensen is so good at, set in a richly evoked world of smugglers and landowners in 18th-century Dorset." * Fiona Noble, The Bookseller *show more

Our customer reviews

This book was very exciting, full of adventure and mystery, with a lovely twist of romance and a brilliant ending. It was so enjoyable - a great read from one of my favourite authors! The story is set in the 1720s, with smugglers and danger thrown into every scene. The main character, is a sixteen-year-old girl who is running away from her home. She's rescued from drowning in a rough sea, by tough looking men - they're known as smugglers. Aboard their ship, 'The Invisible', she learns to do many things she never dreamed she would - coming from a rich family doesn't make doing jobs easy for her! But she soon gets used to life on the ship and when it's time to say goodbye, her heart doesn't want to leave. Plus, she seems to have got to know the smugglers much better - especially one young man in particular.......show more
