1794. In the wake of the Glorious First of June, an equivocal success for the British naval fleet against the French Revolutionary forces, Lieutenant John Pearce has pressing matters to attend to. He must undertake an urgent commission from Lord Hood, track down Midshipman Toby Burns, and placate Emily Barclay who, estranged from her husband, is now under Pearce's protection. Meanwhile, smugglers whose ship Pearce inadvertently stole are on his tail, determined to get their money or kill him in revenge - possibly both. And it is not only John Pearce who has his fair share of trouble. The triumphant Channel Fleet returns, with Ralph Barclay limping from a musket ball in the thigh, Cornelius Gherson fuming at the jokes about his cowardice, and bully-boy Devenow sporting a wounded shoulder and a cauliflower ear. But the battle is already the subject of controversy - both the French and British claim victory, and Barclay is accused of holding back from the action. Pearce turns the tables on his enemies with the aid of his crew, conjures up a trick to free his friends and sets off for the Mediterranean with Emily Barclay. He must fight a ferocious sea battle on the way to aid an old friend, and can only hope that his troubles will end along with his mission. But are they only just beginning?
Tallie is a cairn terrier who lives on a country farm with his sister Tillie. They hunt rats. One night, in pursuit of a poacher, Tallie is kicked over a cliff, and swept out to sea. How do these strange looking creatures come to his rescue?
"Take the kid." Adrenaline took over his body. Dominic bolted towards the back door. He could hardly see, hardly think. Where's the door?! Where's the door?! The store erupted in shouts, falling shelves and merchandise. Dominic screamed as someone behind him lunged forward and dragged him to the ground. His hands hit the floor with a jarring pain that traveled all the way up his arms. Dominic fought to get out of the man's hold, but then another pair of hands was on him. Then another. There were too many. Dominic twisted and screamed and screamed until someone punched him hard in the gut. He could only cough and sputter as his body curled in. Someone else slapped his face so hard, his vision blurred. They all dropped him to the floor where Dominic could only squirm in pain. Dominic, a young Haitian man living an average life, is thrown into a sea of troubles when he is mercilessly kidnapped from his home for ransom. This sets off a chain of events that spans three countries and launches him on an adventure of struggle and perseverance.
