4.5 Stars and TOP PICK!! “Alexander makes her debut with a thrilling, wild ride of a spy thriller that sizzles with passion. Readers will follow her three-dimensional characters through a maze of plot twists and turns. Like an intricate puzzle, Alexander has all the pieces of the ideal romance and arranges them in the perfect picture. She is a rising star you won’t want to miss.” ~ RT Magazine

“A lushly told romance that takes you back to the fascinating Regency world of small village drama and international politics–all converging on the white-hot attraction between a sexy spy and a daredevil smuggler destined to trump Fate!” ~ Kieran Kramer, author of THE HOUSE OF BRADY series

“…THE SMUGGLER WORE SILK is romantic suspense at it’s very best. Alyssa Alexander weaves a tantalizing tale of moral dilemma, political intrigue, and enough heart-thumping romance to keep you turning the pages to the very satisfying end!” ~ Tracy Brogan, author of HIGHLAND SURRENDER


“I read “The Smuggler Wore Silk” by Alyssa Alexander in one day.  I kept turning pages and saying to myself, “I’ll just read to the end of this chapter”.  However I just kept on reading because this book was one you can’t put down because you just have to see what happens next.” ~ Night Owl Reviews

The Moment of Truth

No matter what subgenre—contemporary, historical, suspense, paranormal—all romance novels explore two people falling in love. That’s their purpose. We get to meet two people with hurdles (or villains) to overcome and personal histories to work through. We experience that slow slide of friendship to love, where our hero and heroine are willing to risk everything …

A Day In The Life….

What does a writer’s day look like? Seems like it should be glamorous book signings and writing in a creative and beautiful office, perhaps with music and candles and chocolate.
