With England under the shadow of Napoleon’s invasion, the windswept coast of Devon has become a hotbed of intrigue—with spies and smugglers terrorising the county, no one is safe.

No respectable lady should concern herself with romantic notions of spies and smugglers, but Joanna Fineton does not care.

When she discovers double agent Captain Jackson breaking into her family home, she is suddenly swept up into a tangled web of lies and conspiracy.

Someone in the Fineton house is not who he appears to be—but can Joanna discover who the French spy is before his dastardly plan comes to fruition?

As the plot thickens and Joanna runs out of time to find the traitor, Captain Jackson’s grip on her heart tightens ever more — threatening not only to destroy her future, but England’s too…

‘The Guinea Stamp’ is an intriguing regency romance, perfect for fans of Georgette Heyer and Jane Aiken Hodge. It has also previously been published as ‘The Courting of Joanna’.

An enjoyable Georgian from a loved author, which I hadn’t read before. It’s great to have Chetywynd Ley’s books back on the market and I hope there will be more of them.

I read some of this writer’s books years ago and it is good to be able to enjoy them again. How about some Sylvia Thorpe ones as well?
