Notes:
Kent, 1815. Her heart led her to him, but will loyalty be enough to make her stay. When the beautiful but naive Grace Lennicker falls for Isaiah Feasey, son of a rival smuggling family and owner of a local tavern, her sisters try to intervene. But as tensions grow, there is another suitor also hoping to win her hand in marriage, the dashing and more favourable Albert Enderby, a young lieutenant in the Revenue. Grace is unwittingly drawn back into the world of smuggling that her sisters fought hard to leave behind, and as violence erupts, she finds herself unable to stand by, knowing the rival gangs will kill anyone who stands in their way.

Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Arrow Books, 2017 Born in 1818, Catherine was the youngest daughter of the Rook family of Wanstall Farm in the village of Overshill, and as a child, she lived a charmed existence. The Carters were one of the poorer families in Overshill. They had not been as fortunate as the Rooks, yet the lives of the two families had been intertwined for generations. So when Catherine Rook falls for Matty Carter, it is unsurprising. Until Matty is taken prisoner, leaving Catherine with a half a sixpence that he gave her as a token of his love, and the baby growing in her womb.

Note: Deal, Kent 1817. When Pa Lennicker is murdered by a rival gang over the disappearance of some contraband, the sisters are forced to carve out a living from the 'honourable trade' in spirits, French lace, gold and jewellery. But most of all, they must find a way of wreaking their revenge. Louisa, Winnie and Grace find themselves involved in carrying and hiding contraband. They prepare the goods for sale while at risk of discovery by revenue officers and rival smugglers. They receive goods from ships wrecked on Goodwin Sands a few miles off the coast, and become involved with transferring PoWs and gold on the guinea boats to France. If they are caught, they risk imprisonment, transportation or death by hanging, something that can be avoided by turning in King's evidence. But they will have to mind their backs to avoid being tarred and feathered - or worse - for their betrayal.

Note: Deal, Kent, 1812. Eighteen-year-old Winnie Lennicker yearns for a peaceful life as a respectable married woman. However, when she becomes involved in her family's free-trading operations and caught by the Revenue, she is sent before the magistrates. Forced to confess that she is with child, now more than ever, Winnie is determined to give up smuggling. But the only way she can support herself and her unborn child is to carry on. An opportunity presents itself to carry despatches on behalf of British agents and spies, and gold for Wellington's army. Needing the money, Winnie can't afford to refuse, but the journey across the Channel is treacherous. When Winnie discovers the despatches she's carrying aren't what they seem, she's determined to right her wrongs in the hope of achieving her dream and leaving the free trade behind for good.
