In Cornwall, on the southern coast near Looe. I'm in the woods, and having come across a path I've never seen before, and one I know for certain can't be there, I rather fear I'm going mad...

Charleston, 1779. I'm about to head off to my employer's outlying plantation.

Back to 1760s southern France, in the midst of a series of gruesome and apparently senseless murders.

I'm on Storm Island, trapped in my house with a German spy who's just killed my husband. And my son needs a haircut.

I'm in the late 1700s, in Paradise, just outside New York, and just about to elope (I think - well, I've got my bag packed! :D ).
