Contraband Hearts is the tenth book in the Porthkennack series, a collection of both contemporary and historical romances by various authors set in a Cornish coastal town. Though some of the books and characters are loosely interconnected, all titles in the series are standalones. Contraband Hearts is the second book I’ve read by this author, and once again I was quickly pulled in by the story. Set in 1790, Contraband Hearts details the unexpected relationship that develops between a customs officer from London and the local Porthkennack smuggler he’s been sent to stop. Much like this author’s contemporary romance in the Porthkennack series, there was an interesting suspense/mystery element driving the plot which captured and held my interest. The main characters were well developed and I was very intrigued by their individual stories and if/how these two would eventually find some common ground. The romance itself was pretty minimal, which worked given the time period, but the underlying attraction and strong connection developed over the course of the story created a satisfying and believable relationship between Perry and Tomas. I really enjoy the variety within the Porthkennack series, and Contraband Hearts was a solid addition illustrating that. Even though the love story ended up being fairly subtle, the story and characters were different and wonderful. This title is one from the series I would undoubtedly recommend, especially to fans of historical romances or unexpected pairings. *Received eARC via Netgalley.
