One Dark Night
by Anna Faversham
It is 1821 and smuggling is rife on the English coast. Lucy Yorton, dragged away from her privileged early life, must slave on a bleak, run-down farm. Those around her suspect she is a spy and treat her accordingly. Her problems increase when two men enter her life:
Lieutenant Karl Thorsen, sworn to avenge the murder of his father, is a King’s man. He is determined to stop the violent smugglers, hang them, and hang and gibbet one in particular. Daniel Tynton has smuggling in his blood. Undaunted by Thorsen’s threats, he is respected and feared. The choices we make determine our futures and Lucy is torn between two determined men.

London Danvers disappeared almost twenty years ago. The youngest child of hotel tycoon Witt Danvers – and the only child with his second wife, Kat – London hasn’t been seen since. Over time, many women have claimed to be the long-lost heiress. Adria Nash is the latest. But from the moment Zachary Danvers sees her, he believes Adria is different. For one thing, Adria looks just like Zachary’s former stepmother. For another, Adria knows personal details only London could have known.

A secret chamber. A mysterious shipwreck. A murder in the desolate salt marshes.
A seemingly straightforward private case turns out to be much more complicated-and sinister-than Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast ever could have anticipated. Pendergast, together with his ward Constance Greene, travels to the quaint seaside village of Exmouth, Massachusetts, to investigate the theft of a priceless wine collection. But inside the wine cellar, they find something considerably more disturbing: a bricked-up niche that once held a crumbling skeleton.
