HOW EASILY ONE'S HEART CAN BE STOLEN... DEPENDS UPON THE THIEF

England, 1680
Some call him Gentleman Jack; others know him as Swift Nick. The only name Jack Nevison never uses is the one left to him by his abusive sire. Jack wants nothing to do with his heritage; instead, he preys on the wealthy, stealing coin (and the occasional kiss) on England's darkest roads. Jack's dangerous deeds are legend, yet the thrill of a highwayman's life is growing cold.

Beautiful and bold, Arabella Hamilton may come from the world Jack despises, but she's a kindred spirit at heart. When circumstances bring them together the sparks ignite, yet they remain on opposite sides of society and the law, and with each encounter, they risk more. To be together, one of them will have to give up their world forever.

A Heroes and Heartbreakers Years Best Read, The Highwayman concludes Judith James's Rakes and Rogues of the Restoration series. The adventures and exploits of real-life highwayman Swift Nick Nevison and the observations and writings of 17th century travel writer Celia Fiennes are woven throughout this tale, which takes the reader from the privileged world of London's aristocracy to the highways and byways, inns and hunting grounds of some of England's most celebrated rogues.

Winner of IPPY Gold for the critically acclaimed Broken Wing and author of Highland Rebel, a Barnes and Noble and Dear Author book of the year, award-winning author Judith James' Rakes and Rogues of the Restoration series transports you to the thrilling days of highwaymen, cavaliers, courtiers, and spies.

Those who enjoy the historical breadth of Elizabeth Chadwick and Phillipa Gregory, the sizzle of Elizabeth Hoyt, the depth of story and characterization of Mary Jo Putney or Laura Kinsale, the bad boy heroes of Anne Stuart, and the beautiful writing and intense emotion of Mary Balogh, will find much to love when they discover Judith James. Rich with history and sizzling with passion, these are love stories you won't soon forget!

From the Inside Flap:

 
"Quite unique and splendid." - Regan's Romance Reviews, Regan Walker
 
"Reading a Judith James book is a lot like opening a beautifully wrapped present. I know I am in for an adventure, a wonderful romance, an engaging story, characters who never languish between the covers but instead are bigger than life and step right out of the pages as well as historical details that add so much ambience to all of those things. The Highwayman is all of that and more. I loved that both main characters are based on actual historical people and that I can see them come to life in such an unforgettable fashion. Jack's character is based on the real highwayman, 'Swift Nick', Jack Nevison, while Arabella's roots can be found in Celia Fiennes, an English woman who rode side saddle through every county in England keeping meticulous journal entries of all she saw and experienced. The Highwayman truly is an adventure from beginning to end. Ride with Jack and Arabella 'across the moors, racing the moon with naught but the stars to mark the way.' Will you answer the call to adventure and romance and deeds of derring-do, atop the 'fastest horse in England?' Come adventuring with Gentleman Jack." - kathyb.booklikes.com
