A woman driven to crime finds love with a man of the law in this tale of eighteenth-century Cornwall, “full of twists and turns” (Buried Under Romance).
 
England, 1779. Though many citizens of Cornwall have resorted to smuggling as their only means of survival, Jenna Cartwright has determined to always abide the law. But when her brother is sent to debtor’s prison, Jenna must do whatever it takes to free him. Housekeeping by day for one Jack Penhale, she joins a gang of violent brigands each night on Cornwall’s rocky coast.
 
A professional thief-taker, Jack knows to keep his business private, even from his charming new housekeeper. He has come to Cornwall to find the criminals who killed his father, but his mind keeps returning to Jenna’s innocent, bewitching smile. As their lives become entangled, and the worlds of justice and crime collide, the love-struck pair must decide where their allegiances lie.
 
This “striking” tale of passion and survival brings to life an unforgettable time and place in history (Historical Novel Society).

About the author

Victoria Cornwall grew up on a dairy farm in Cornwall. She can trace her Cornish roots as far back as the eighteenth century and it is this background and heritage which is the inspiration for her Cornish based novels. Cornwall is married, has two grown up children, and a black Labrador, called Alfie. She likes to read and write historical fiction with a strong background story, but at its heart is the unmistakable emotion, even pain, of loving someone. Following a fulfilling twenty-five year career as a nurse, a change in profession finally allowed her the time to write. Cornwall is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and the Historical Novel Society.
