From the Author:

A family drama which transcends time
Adam Loveday is the first of the Loveday Series set in 19th century Cornwall. The Lovedays own a struggling shipyard and are caught up in the events of The French Revolution, Napoleonic Wars and smuggling. They are a family of chequered fortunes and fated passions. They are a family of headstrong adventurers whose lives are governed by ambition, love, rivalry and sometimes greed. Adversity challenges them and passions drive them in a story which vividly recreates the atmosphere and social conditions of the day. Fate denied Adam Loveday his birthright: the family estate and shipyard and leads to intense feuding with his elder twin, St John. They are rivals not only for the family inheritance but also in love. And St John will stop at nothing to ensure that Adam is not the victor.
