In my new Georgian romance, Echo in the Wind, the hero, Jean Donet, comte de Saintonge, gave up his privateering with the end of the American War, but he is not immune to a bit of smuggling to keep England in brandy and tea.
Jean Donet kept his warehouse, full of goods to be smuggled, on Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands, or as they were known in 1784, “the French Isles”.
Guernsey has a beautiful coastline with sandy beaches and flower-covered dunes, rock pools, coves and rustic harbors. Just the sort of place a former pirate might like. Take a look at the island and a snippet from my story HERE.
