Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Smuggler's Kiss by Marie-Louise Jensen

It's not a crime to steal a heart

Smugglers are cut-throat rascals. At least that's what Isabelle's always been told. But when she's rescued from drowning at sea by the crew of a notorious smuggling ship, her principles are thrown into confusion. Outwitting the king's men fills her with excitement, especially when she's with one mysterious smuggler in particular . . .
It's not available in the US (and I can't see if/when it will be) but it is available in the UK at Waterstones which has an even better synopsis:

"You're smugglers?" "That ain't what we call ourselves." His voice rumbled deep in his chest. "We're Gentlemen o' the Night." In the autumn of 1720, Isabelle does something which changes her life for ever. But though Isabelle has fled, she is still trapped. If the secret of her previous life is revealed then the smugglers who have found her will not let her stay on board The Invisible - and she has nowhere else to go. To survive, Isabelle must help her captors - even though she detests what they do. But soon her principles are thrown into confusion, as she discovers that outwitting the King's Men fills her with excitement. Soon she finds herself becoming fiercely loyal to the crew - and to one mysterious smuggler in particular ...
add it on Goodreads and/or ask Book Depository to notify you if they get it

I blame Avi's The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle for my love of just about every book with the promise of a girl on a ship . . . and then the library and books on pirates (and Pirates of the Caribbean if I'm being completely honest) for the fact that I love anything that even maybe puts them together. Yes, these are smugglers, but really . . .

What's your pick this fine Wednesday?
