Four of Christopher Kenworthy’s thrilling Matthew Milburn books are collected here together for the first time.
IN THE DARK OF THE MOON
After being robbed of his farm, Matthew Milburn is left with no choice but to leave his childhood sweetheart behind and forge a new life as a sailor in Nelson’s Navy. But after being left for dead on his first voyage, Matthew is given a chance for revenge on his old enemies. Can Matthew manage to reclaim his past life and the woman he once loved?
RIDE THE DARK TIDE
In 1812, Great Britain and the fledging United States of America are trembling on the brink of war. Matthew Milburn’s son Bartholomew is snatched from him and forced to enlist with the opposite side’s Royal Navy. Vengeful against England, Matthew must fight his way through half a dozen battles at sea and across the wild countryside of Ireland before he can find his home again.
STORM IN THE DARK
In 1815, whilst the Battle of New Orleans is raging between the British and the United States, Matthew Milburn finds himself pursuing an old enemy through the Mississippi bayous to rescue a beautiful woman. Matthew must make up his mind about which way his loyalties lie as both he and the USA find themselves in a desperate fight for life.
AGAINST A DARK SHORE
After the Anglo-American War has ended, Milburn desperately tries to repair his fortunes. However, after making an enemy out of an influential, he is forced to flee, landing him in the middle of a slave uprising among the plantations of the Bahamas. As this beautiful haven becomes a cold-blooded death trap, Matthew becomes involved in a desperate struggle to save an entrancing young girl from a terrible fate.
