Compelling romance and suspense – a story full of twists and turns.

Shadows aren’t always what they seem. The dramatic and gripping tale of one man with two lives and the woman he craves, but cannot have…

He was the handsome aristocrat and charismatic adventurer and she was the feisty, unconventional woman he loved. He was English and she was French, two strong-willed people determined never to give in to each other, and a devious, diabolical enemy determined to exact revenge on the smuggler who had constantly evaded him and thwarted his nefarious plans.

Set at the end of the 18th century when France was on the cusp of a bloodthirsty Revolution, this is an exciting and unputdownable tale of daring escapes, broken promises, distrust and misunderstandings, all threaded through by a passionate and turbulent love affair, a scorching romance that wouldn’t be denied.
