 Catch Me If You Can

Plagued by scandalous rumors, Rheda Kerrich will stop at nothing to restore her reputation and make an honest living for herself–and she’s determined to do it without a husband. But times are hard, and smuggling is a risky though profitable trade. So when a dashing agent for the English government catches her in the act, she desperately resists his charms and conceals her illicit profession. Until she realizes he may be the key to her ultimate freedom–and unbridled passion…

Rufus Knight, Viscount Strathmore, has never had trouble beguiling the ladies of Kent. When his search for “Dark Shadow,” a cunningly elusive smuggler, leads him to alluring and headstrong Rhe, her objections to his amorous advances merely incite a tantalizing game of cat and mouse. Soon, they’ll find the very secrets driving them apart could ensnare them in a love they can’t escape…

 

Review: Rheda Kerrich is a character that I really like! The Mrs. Evans did a great job slowly showing us who she is and the events that made her this hellion/smuggler/heroine lady that she is today.

Now Rufus (what a name! LOL) is a very dynamic hero. He is as volatile as a nuke in Korea. One min he is a gentleman, honorable, the next a seething barbaric Alpha male. Buts always always presumptuous sensuality.

There were a few inconsistencies that I didn’t like. Such as Rheda can run a smuggling ring but doesn’t know that much about breeding horses. It’s her dream to run the horse farm. According to her personality I figured she would have researched. But that’s just me. The scene where one of her horses has colic was great. So I’m not complaining. Just an observation.

Get it you won’t regret it.
