AN EXPLORER LOST...
To the East India Company, he is the ideal explorer: unwed, uncomplaining, strong as an ox and profitable. There's nothing Seth Mayhew can't find... until his sister disappears en route to India. The expedition is the first he fears he may fail, until he discovers a valuable and irresistible ally sailing on the same ship to Bombay.
A LADY FOUND...
Wilhelmina Adams is on an expedition of her own–for a husband. With six sisters, no dowry, and no marriage prospects in her Derbyshire village, Bombay promises a husband and security. But assisting a dangerously distracting won't improve her prospects.
A LOVE DISCOVERED.
It’s an inevitable partnership, but the winds of fate are ever changing. Adventures that begin in the bazaars of Bombay can diverge to the slums of London and patchwork fields of England. And at each port of call, Seth and Mina will have to risk everything to unearth the heart’s greatest prize.
