THE MATCHMAKER’S ROGUE

Matchmaker's Rogue cover

 

This was a very good story, but I have put this as a 4-star because it was not one that would keep me glued to.  This is about Jesslyn Chance and Larkin Denby.  Jess is the hostess of the spa at Grace-at-the-Sea, which she took over after her physician father passed away.  Lark is undercover for the King to find the Lord of Smugglers.  Jess and Lark, in the past, had been, shall we say, friendly.  She is wondering first of all, why is he there and is he trying to pick up where they left off years before.  In near the center of the book, while going through a tour of a Castle How, it is found that that is the place where the smugglers are putting a beacon light in the window to show clear passage for the smugglers.  The question here is, is Jess’s brother a smuggler?  What will she do if that is found to be true?  Will Jess and Lark end up back in each other’s arms?  These and more are questions that will be answered when you read this book.  Good job, Regina, and another book well written!

 

Synopsis: Grace-by-the-Sea: Where romance and adventure come home.
Polished Jesslyn Chance has one of the most enviable positions in the little Regency coastal village of Grace-by-the-Sea. She is the hostess of the spa, arranging introductions and entertainments and playing matchmaker to the ladies and gentlemen who come to take the waters, promenade through the shops, and dance at the assembly. But when a rogue returns from her past, Jess finds herself suddenly at sea.
Always an adventurer, Larkin Denby left Grace-by-the-Sea to right the wrongful death of his father. Now he’s back on a mission: to identify the mysterious Lord of the Smugglers who allegedly sails from Grace Cove and takes England’s secrets to France. But Grace-by-the-Sea is the perfect little spa town, run by the still oh-so-perfect Jesslyn Chance. When the village’s future is threatened, Jess must work with Lark to solve the mystery and protect the town’s own. In doing so, the matchmaker of Grace-by-the-Sea may just find that the best match for her is the rogue who stole her heart years ago.

 

Regina Scott

 

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she’d learned a bit more about writing. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, and a good kick in the backside from her husband, she got serious about writing. Since then, she’s had published more than 40 clean historical romances for adults and young adults. Her traditional romances have earned praised from reviewers and readers alike. Booklist calls her work “quietly compelling” and “impeccably written.” Huntress Reviews says, “Regina Scott delivers,” and “I will always buy a book with Regina Scott’s name on it.” Regina Scott is the author of the Frontier Bachelors series set in pioneer Seattle. She is also the author of more than two dozen sweet historical romances set in Regency England in such series as Fortune’s Brides, Uncommon Courtships, the Everard Legacy, the Master Matchmakers, and the Lady Emily Capers. She has twice been awarded best book of the year for her type of story from industry favorite RT Book Reviews. Regina Scott has learned to fence, driven four-in-hand, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course. She makes her home in the Puget Sound area of Washington State with her beloved husband. Find her online at her website http://www.reginascott.com, the blog she shares with author Marissa Doyle at http://www.nineteenteen.com, on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/authorreginascott, and on Goodreads at www.goodreads.com/reginascott.
