Miss Isabelle's Craving
After her sister, Elspeth’s successful marriage, Isabelle is sure she’ll only ever be an old maid aunt. That is until she meets Langdon. He’s tall, he’s dashing and he’s the only man who excites her enough to take a walk on the wild side, but she has only a month to explore Shanghai before Elspeth and Aeddan have decreed they must return to England.
Langdon wants Isabelle from the first moment they meet in the Salon, but with news that she’s leaving shortly, he’s propelled into action after an advance that leaves him reeling.
Marriage is the only answer but he’s got other pressing issues, such as dealing with opium importation and pressure from his superior.
Between the opium problem, issues with Forster Shipping and learning to accept her sexuality, the first weeks of marriage are full of adventure and danger.
