In THE RELUCTANT SMUGGLER (4), a young widow comes to a small village to protect a secret and raise her small son. However, she is placed in a different kind of danger when a nobleman saves her sons life. Sebastian is determined to marry the local beauty, but first he must secure a fortune. Since she has discovered his secret smuggling, he decides to make her an accomplice to buy her silence. But the more time he spends in her company the more he finds himself drawn to her. This is a delightfully smooth, flowing and tender tale of the gentle awakening of love. Teresa DesJardien has a knack for taking human frailty and finding the romance in it.
