"November 1807. Captain Sir Thomas Kydd must sail to Lisbon to aid the Portuguese Royal Family's evacuation in the face of Napoleon's ruthless advance through Iberia. In the chaos of the threatened city an old passion is reawakened when he meets Persephone Lockwood, a beautiful and determined admiral's daughter from his past.

But the Royal Family's destination is Brazil, Perspehone's England, and it seems Kydd's chance has gone again. Only later he discovers Persephone has another suitor – and that, if he wants to win her hand, he must enter the highest echelons of London society.

Mixing with aristocracy and royalty brings other responsibilities. The Prince of Wales asks him to take temporary command of the Royal Yacht. Sailing to Yarmouth, Kydd realises they are being stalked by French privateers. The terrible threat of a prince of the blood being captured sees Kydd call on daring seamanship of the highest order"

This is a new one for me.

I believe Stockwin is a fairly new author, in this area at least.

The Kidd stories are quite good – from pressed man to knight. I have just finished the book on Kidds involvement in taking the Cape of Good Hope from the Dutch. I enjoyed it – listened to it as an ebook while driving.

I think it's the latest of his 8 or 9 'Kydd' books, so not a new author.
