The Lace Maiden
January 9, 2020
Foreign rights controlled by:
Deal, Kent. 1811. The heart of the British smuggling business.
‘Deal is a godforsaken town where the streets are ruled by villains . . .’
The Lennicker sisters live in a cottage nestled amongst the counting houses, shops and inns, where the smugglers plot and the seamen drink.
When their father – a fisherman and smuggler – is murdered by a rival gang, the eldest daughter, Louisa, is forced to carve out a living by trading illegally in French lace. She will do anything to keep a roof over her sisters’ heads, but what she truly desires is a way of wreaking revenge . . .
With the threat of Napoleon approaching Britain’s shores, the stakes couldn’t be higher. One wrong move and Louisa could risk losing not only her sisters, but her life . . .
The first book in the series of The Smuggler’s Daughters
