Week two of investigating the Historical Romances I wrote for the Search Duology in Six Sentence Sunday. This one was written years after the first, mainly because I was hoping to get to Shanghai before I wrote it. Sadly, this didn't happen due to the passing of my FIL.
But I'm sure you'll enjoy...
Miss Isabelle's Craving.
They moved in slow, measured steps, her nerves melting away as she slid the veil over her face. Langdon turned his smile her direction.
Finally, she stood beside him. The Bishop talked. Isabelle wasn’t sure what he said or asked. She must have answered his questions because Langdon was sliding the ring onto her finger.
Miss Isabelle's Craving:
After her sister’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 excites her enough to take a walk on the wild side. But with a month to explore Shanghai before her sister and husband have decreed they must return to England, time is short.
Langdon wants Isabelle from the first moment they meet, but with news that she’s leaving shortly, he’s propelled into action after she makes her proposition.
Marriage is the only answer, but he’s got other pressing issues. Hunting down the importers of opium and pressure from his superior to see if the Forster sisters are involved.
Between the opium problem and issues with running Forster Shipping, Isabelle is learning to accept her sexuality and changed circumstances. It’s going to make their first weeks of marriage full of adventure and danger

Where To Buy:
There's this amazing feeling once a series of books is finally released in full.
It's a kind of mix between excitement and being down in the dumps... mainly because with the story told, it's time to say goodbye to these characters who've inhabited your mind for a period of time.
Right now, I'm in the space of saying goodbye to not one but two series (more on that later on in the year though!)
I started Miss Elspeth back in 2015 while I was trying to get my head back into writing ... After hubs accident, I needed time to get my mojo back.
Try something differnt I thought. Let me tell youi I have so much respect for Historical authors. While with Science Fiction, when I'm writing something I tend to focus on a couple of major concepts, beef them up and learn everything possible then use them to their best advantage. With Historical, there is so much more. The clothing, the mannerisms and speech patterns. The geography and social mores.
I wrote Isabelle because I always planned to - it was after all a Duology, but also because while she was there in the background of Elspeth, she had a really strong presence in my mind.
I knew where the book would take place. I knew a little about the hero, but the rest? She was determined to make me work for all of it!
But anyway, Isabelle's story is now written and the great thing is, not only is it available in EBook but also print.
Please take a moment to check it out. For the next few days, you can grab the e-version for 99 cents!
