Lord of the Smugglers or lord of her heart?
French singer and spy Marie-Louise Fortier has spent her life protecting idealistic men like her father, who died trying to wrest France back from Napoleon. So when the British War Office asks her to safeguard a former naval captain in the little spa village of Grace-by-the-Sea from the emperor’s threats, she doesn’t hesitate, even if it means pretending to be engaged to the legendary Captain St. Claire to remain at his side.
Quillan St. Claire has been taking care of himself since he was a foundling. He’s fought Napoleon in battle and now smuggles the tyrant’s secrets from France to aid England’s cause. He’s certainly not willing to trust the pretty soprano with his life, yet her siren’s voice seems to call to him. As danger draws closer, Marie and Quill must work together to protect the friendly little village that welcomed them, only to discover that protecting each other may mean risking their hearts for a real chance at love.
If you love sweet, witty Regency romances with a touch of adventure, then you’ll love The Siren’s Captain, the final book in a series by an award-winning author.

Return to Grace-by-the-Sea, where romance and adventure come home, today.
‘He seems rather timid for an assassin.’
Here we go back to the lovely village of Grace-By-The-Sea, which was created by Regina Scott. This is the sixth and maybe last book in the series. I certainly hope Scott changes her mind and gives us more of these folks. This offering features the Lord of the Smugglers himself, Quillan St. Claire. It would appear Napoleon has sent an assassin to kill Quillan to keep him from working to bring Boney down., but old Boney hasn’t figured on the crafty residents of this tiny village, especially the women’s militia. Oh! The War Office has sent a singer, Marie de Fontaine, to protect Quillan, too. Ree intends on sticking to him like glue, vowing to protect him with her life if necessary.
I fell in love with Grace-By-The-Sea with the first book and still enjoy my regular visits there. These dear people worked their way into my heart quickly and have there remained. Regina Scott is a dab hand at a Regency tale and these stories are super good. Well done!
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. The opinion here is entirely my own.

I have not read anything by her. The book sounds interesting.
She does a great Regency.
