With little choice but to flee her home, she disguises herself as a young lad. But when she finds her only chance of reaching her former governess, who resides in France, is to stowaway on a smuggler’s sloop, she ends up having to trust a gentleman she suspects is a spy.

BIOGRAPHY I started writing Regency romance novels as a hobby, and now that I am retired in Port Royal, SC, I am fortunate to be able call this my second career.
I love writing about strong, resourceful women in an age where it was thought that women were incapable of taking care of themselves and couldn't own property.
Kindle e-books have allowed me to grow as a writer. With each novel, I have made mistakes, but I have learned so much along the way. I enjoy reading my reviews and am thankful that my readers take the time to critique my novels. I am also a member of RWA and the Lowcountry local chapter.
I currently live in beautiful Port Royal, SC with my husband.
