Publisher Description

Compelling romance and swashbuckling thrills.

Behind The Shadow: The dramatic and gripping story of one man with two lives and the woman he craves, but cannot have. 

He was the handsome aristocrat and charismatic adventurer who created a dynasty and she was the feisty, unconventional woman he loved. He was English and she was French, two strong-willed people determined never to give in to each other, and a devious, diabolical enemy determined to exact revenge on the smuggler who had constantly evaded him and thwarted his nefarious plans,

Set at the end of the 18th century when France was on the cusp of a bloodthirsty Revolution, this is an exciting and unputdownable tale of daring escapes, broken promises, distrust and misunderstandings, all threaded through by a passionate and turbulent love affair, a scorching romance that wouldn't be denied.

Part One: The Elusive Smuggler

France 1790. A country in turmoil and you're desperate. Your family has been unjustly thrown into a fortress prison for reasons nothing to do with the Revolution and it's down to you to rescue them, if you can, before they meet a grim fate. So what to do when you only have a crippled brother to aid you? With law and order breaking down and justice gone missing, you decide only someone with a ruthless reputation can help, a devious and cunning criminal, if you can find the man you've heard about. The brutal and corrupt Regional Governor has been trying for years without success, but that won't discourage you because you're an exceedingly determined woman, wilful and somewhat eccentric, and you'll pay or do anything if this man can help facilitate an escape from the fortress and get your family out of France.

Marie-Catherine de Mornay had always got her way and done what she wanted, and succeeded, but that was before she met The Shadow. However, Edgar Bernheim, the venal Governor, had his own private agenda, for which the Revolution was merely a front, and was an exceedingly vengeful man people took on at their peril…
