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…

But 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 explorer 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.

In 1850’s London, the city is abuzz with the tale of Will Repton. The lone survivor of a massacre in Tibet has returned to England a hero, but the traumatized explorer has no time for glory.

Is No Match for an Adventurous Heart…

The Incomparable of the Season has bachelors panting at her dainty, spangled slippers but scandal is sinking the family and no aristocrat will have her to wed.  When Charlotte meets Will—quite literally, the man of her dreams—no other man will do.  The only problem is, marriage is the last thing on his mind.
