Lucy Yorton, begins her life in a privileged Regency household and is educated alongside Sir William Harper’s son. Her mother, jealous of her daughter’s life, decides to put an end to her life of luxury and Lucy is dragged away and sent out to work on a farm in all weathers.
No one trusts this girl who is different from the rest of the villagers and they suspect she is a spy – smuggling is their main occupation. In turn, she doesn’t know who to trust.
Then two men enter her life and her problems increase.
Lieutenant Karl Thorsen, sworn to avenge the death of his father, is a King’s man. He takes pity on Lucy – or does he? One thing is sure, he is determined to stop the violent smugglers, hang them, and hang and gibbet one in particular.
Daniel Tynton has smuggling in his blood. Undaunted by Thorsen’s threats, he is respected and feared. When he witnesses a murder, he makes a bold decision, and many lives will never be the same.

England is my home but I’ve also lived in New Zealand, a beautiful country and the people are great, and central Africa which was an interesting and useful experience that I’ll never forget.
On returning to England, I’ve written and read for the BBC and published short stories as well as three novels. Two are set in my county of Kent and the latest is set in the beautiful Isle of Wight.
