About the Book
She wanted adventure but didn’t count on one quite so dangerous …
Cornish girl Adeline Perran doesn’t want to be a traditional woman. She’d rather row her dinghy than knit and sew, and yearns for adventure beyond her village. So when a French ship flounders off the coast one night she seizes her chance to do something daring and goes smuggling to help her ill father. But she doesn’t count on getting arrested — and becoming a spy to gain her pardon.
Sir Richard Clendon, code-name Finch, is the most experienced spy in the network. He’s tasked with training Adeline but when they’re given a mission after only three weeks, she’s hardly skilled and a grave liability. Frankly, he’s not sure she’ll survive.
They travel disguised as husband and wife across Napoleon’s war-torn France and Adeline is determined to succeed. But they’re discovered and as they flee ruthless militia, she uses all her ingenuity to keep them alive. Only there’s a problem with being a pretend wife. It often leads to wanting the real thing and soon she faces the greatest danger of all — the love that flares between her and Finch —unbidden and totally impossible …
