Lydia Winchester's plain features and bookish personality have doomed her to spinsterhood in Victorian London. Her true interests lie in a far-off, exotic land she's determined to reach in order to right a terrible wrong.
Armand St. Clair's only loyalty belongs to the sea. When a little mouse of an Englishwoman saves him from the gallows, he feels honor-bound to accede to her brother's request and escort her to Hong Kong. But treachery and danger sail with them on the high seas.
In a mystic empire, Lydia will face the evils of greed, opium, and betrayal to find her true self: a woman of incredible honor, courage, and determination. A woman destined to love the one man who gave her his protection and his name when she needed them most.
And now the cover:
I really have to thank the ultra talented Tamra Westberry at The Wild Rose Press who always seems to capture what my less than artistic brain is trying to convey.
So...how's your day?
