Celine Jeanjean - The Opium Smuggler
The Opium Smuggler
A Quirky Steampunk Fantasy
An impossible smuggling route
A smuggler who won’t quit
Will Adelma’s stubbornness bring her success or ruin her life?
Adelma has one dream: to set herself up as a smuggler. But as the daughter of a fisherman, that’s easier said than done.
As she slowly starts to network in the smuggling world, she comes across a man who loudly mocks her looks. What’s a self-respecting wannabe smuggler to do? Punch his lights out, of course. Preferably in front of an audience—adding humiliation to injury.
But the man turns out to be far more powerful than she realised, successfully ensuring no one in the smuggling world will give her work.
With no options left, Adelma turns to one of the most dangerous people in Damsport. No one knows where The Widow comes from, whether she’s truly a widow, or how she came to operate Damsport’s largest criminal network.
The one thing everyone knows? You don’t mess with the Widow, and if you work for her, you better make damn sure you’re successful. The consequences of failure don’t bear thinking about.
Except that Adelma’s first smuggling job is going to be a route that no seasoned smuggler has ever survived. That’s enough of a challenge, but it’ll be even harder with someone after her, determined to make sure she fails.
Adelma’s too stubborn to quit, but will she be able to pull off the impossible, or will she ruin her life in the process?
