"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I like Ms Alexander's writing style. I liked the romance, the action, the drama and the emotion she was able to convey in the story.
Julian and Grace are both scarred a a wounded by life. They need each other and yet resist committing. They are both a bit stupid in that respect. Each willing to sacrifice happiness to "spare" the other. I could sort of understand it in Julian's case - but why Grace did it was not clear to me.
There were three reasons why I didn't give this five stars. One - Julian never says I love you - that is a must for me. I believe he loved her and when he compared himself to the villain he admitted he also loved a woman (not the same thing - sorry) ,Two - a couple of story lines were left dangling (like who visited
Michael and what was that about?) and Three - the book just ends too abruptly and the reader is left wondering what is going to happen with these two - an epilogue was really needed.
Other than those things - which in the grand scheme of things were really minor. This was a very good book and I look forward to reading Angel's book.
Two books I can't help comparing "The Smuggler Wore Silk" to are "The Spymaster's Lady" by Joanna Bourne, and "Smuggler's Lady" by Jane Feather, both of which I would highly recommend.
Julian's a charmer, but under his Wandering Earl facade he's a calculating spy. Grace isn't what she seems, either--the easily ignored poor relation is actually a smuggler and a healer. Who better for a spy than a smuggler?
I'm a sucker for a breeches wearing heroine and a tortured hero. Alexander gives me both. My other weakness? Adventure. The Smuggle Wore Silk has that in spades, too. The love story was gripping, and I didn't figure out who'd done it til the end, so I say kudos. If anything, I could've used a little more.
I'm looking at you, Alexander. I wouldn't be opposed to an epilogue one day...
