Description The Highwayman de Judith James:

"Rooted in an authentic historical setting, this thrilling tale of passion and adventure will leave you breathless." -Sabrina Jeffries, NYT bestselling author "A new historical by Judith James is always drop-everything-else-and-devour time for me, and the third entry in her Rakes and Rogues of the Restoration series is no exception. Ms. James never fails to deliver a compelling romance between two complex protagonists wrapped in you-are-there history, a winning combination." HEROES AND HEARTBREAKERS BEST READS 2014 Anna Bowling 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 or Phillipa Gregory, the sizzle of Elizabeth Hoyt, the depth of story and characterization of Mary Jo Putney or Laura Kinsale, and the bad boy heroes of Anne Stuart, 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!
