Grab the next exciting addition to the Pirates of Britannia World with this action packed rescue on the high seas in "The de Wolfe of Wharf Street" 

1629 A.D. -Gabriel Hardacre is one of three orphan brothers with a talent for acrobatics and performing.

It's how they make their living... mostly. If a few jewels and trinkets make it into their hands from time to time... well, a man has to eat after all. Their haunt is the Wharf Street Tavern at the docks in Barnstaple.

Perspicacity Glenwood, known as Cassie to her friends, is a forthright and determined young woman. She runs a small school that teaches the children of the docks - as well as some of the adults - who want to learn to read and write. 

One of her older students is the handsome Gabriel, but a burgeoning romance between them is thwarted when Cassie receives word that an ailing aunt in Ireland needs her care.

The voyage across the Irish Sea is a short one and ought to be without peril, but the evil Dutch pirate Jan Janszoon controls Lundy Island just outside the Bristol Channel, picking off ships for their bounty of goods - and people to sell as slaves in North Africa.

Gabriel learns from a mysterious man, who simply calls himself de Wolfe, that Cassie's ship has been taken. The man's wife is also among the captives and he's putting together 'a wolf pack' to destroy Janszoon's base of operations for good.

The mission will be hazardous, it will be deadly - and it has to be done within the next two weeks before Cassie and the other captives are taken out of reach forever.

Can Gabriel save the woman he's fallen in love with?


Gabriel Hardacre and his two brothers might have different fathers but that doesn't mean they are any less a family.  They took an oath to stay together.  So they travel the country earning a living any way they can.  Mostly it's as acrobats entertaining the crowds or doing odd jobs. 
Perspicacity Glenwood (Cassie) is making a new life for herself with the help of her cousin and his wife.  She will be teaching little ones in the almshouse school. 
This is a very unusual historical romance.  It has fantastic characters and lots of action.  The danger and excitement comes in unexpected places.  It ties in nicely with two of my favourite series.  The World of De Wolfe and The pirates of Britannia.
Great fun,  I loved it.
