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
