Description

Port Beaufort, North Carolina - May 1765

Seventeen-year-old Adam Fletcher is no stranger to fist fights, but when he bloodies the nose of the obnoxious son of Port Beaufort's customs agent, the local magistrate offers Adam two choices: jail or an apprenticeship.
Choosing the latter, he soon finds himself bound apprentice to a reclusive old man with a secret, colorful past. Although Adam is less than thrilled about his new situation, when he is asked to spy on his master as a suspected smuggler, he has to decide where his loyalties lie. Will he perform his civic duty to the Crown, or will he do whatever is necessary to protect the old man, possibly putting even his own family in danger?

Secrets will be revealed, loyalties will be questioned, betrayals will be uncovered, and a young man's character will be put to the test in The Smuggler's Gambit.

The Smuggler's Gambit is the first book in the Adam Fletcher Adventure Series of historical fiction novels. If you like fast-moving adventures, impetuous young heroes, suspense-filled plots, and a dash of romance, then you'll love Sara Whitford's entertaining, family-friendly series!

    A daring story revolving around a 1800’s British Colony adventure with ships and seaports plus a wonderful display of characters that you will fall in love with. Complete with a strong male protagonist who’s actions takes us on a wonderful journey. Excellent work. KSW

    I got this as a free download and Im so glad I went for it! This story is set in the early 18th century and from what I can see is fairly accurate in descriptions about life at the time. The chapters are short, but arent rushed. The series itself reminds me of the Horatio Hornblower series and the Sackett series. Now I know what collection Im going to add to my personal library at home!
