Miss Isabelle's Craving is the second of the Search Duology.
It was written to round out the stories. There is, of course, a younger sister, but given she married well and young, I never wrote Louisa's story. I'm not sure I will either...
So for you pleasure, here is Miss Isabelle's Craving.

“Major?” she whispered into the wind.
He parted the foliage of the gardens, the fragrance of many flowers filling the air, and when he smiled at her, the knot in her belly tightened. “Isabelle, come with me.”
Miss Isabelle's Craving
Two sisters, one driving desire for passion.
After her sister’s successful marriage, Isabelle Forster is sure she’ll only ever be an old maid aunt. That is until she meets Langdon Deveraux. He’s tall, he’s dashing, and he excites her enough to take a walk on the wild side. But with only a month to explore Shanghai before her sister and brother-in-law have decreed they must return to England, time is short.
Langdon wants Isabelle from the first moment they meet, but with the news that she’s leaving shortly, he’s propelled into action after she makes an advance that leaves him reeling. Marriage is the only answer, but he’s got other pressing issues: hunting down the opium importers 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 the first weeks of marriage full of adventure and danger.
