Description

"Beautifully written, deeply romantic, and utterly magnificent." —Courtney Milan, New York Times bestselling author

Escaping the brutal reaches of Tibet is one accomplishment, but escaping the snare of love is another entirely...

All of London is abuzz with the tale of Will Repton. The lone survivor of a massacre in Tibet has returned to England a hero, but the traumatized explorer has no time for glory. Another dangerous expedition awaits. Nothing will deter him from his quest, and no one will unearth his secret-until Will meets Charlotte Baker.

Vivacious Charlotte Baker also has a mission-to find a man whose bold spirit matches her own. When she meets Will Repton, she immediately recognizes him as her soul mate, and she's naively willing to turn her back on the rules of propriety to ensnare him. Will is torn between his fascination with Charlotte and his vow to finish his quest. He knows what it is to risk life and limb-but what if his most perilous adventure doesn't lie across an ocean, but within his own lost heart?

When it's quiet and no one is about, she can pretend she is taking her exercise on the grounds of an ancient, family estate. When it's not, she's reminded her family is not of the landed gentry, the pond is in the middle of Chicago, and the only adventure in her day comes in the form of emails marked 'urgent' at her advertising job. Originally from Okinawa, off-base and on, Susanne now makes her home in Illinois. When not working, writing, attending theater or reading, she travels to England, where she enjoys getting lost in the woods.

        November 9, 2015
        Brooding botanist and adventurer Will Repton and common-born socialite Charlotte Baker take center stage in this warm and complex Victorian romance. Will, recently returned to London after a six-year trip in China with a dire ending, manifests himself as the man of irrepressible Charlotte’s romantic dreams when he pays a call on her brother-in-law and inadvertently gets presented among her suitors. His determination to fund a new expedition and return to Tibet, driven by a secret purpose, is at odds with her belief that they are destined to be together. More visits with her brother-in-law become a screen behind which Will informally courts Charlotte, displaying a depth of perception and understanding that her other beaux lack. Readers may become impatient with the obstacles between the lovers (which could be removed with a frank emotional discussion) and a bit of a kitchen-sink approach to the subplots, but the warmth of their romantic and intellectual connection, as well as the strongly drawn supporting characters, make this novel worth the reader’s while.

        The only survivor of a brutal massacre, explorer Will Repton returns from Tibet a wounded hero, but memories plague him and he knows he'll have to go back. Charlotte Baker has followed Will's expedition with avid interest, and when she meets him in person, the connection between them is electric. She believes that they are destined to be together, but Will is not about to let anything keep him from Tibet, even his growing feelings for Charlotte. Naturally, Charlotte has her own ways of getting what she wants. Hidden agendas add a dash of danger to this steamy Victorian romance. VERDICT An intrepid explorer with an unfinished quest and some ghosts to lay to rest and a fearless heroine fight for their love against all odds. An emotionally compelling, heartrending debut. Lord lives in Chicago.

        Lord introduces the first of her London Explorers in this delightful debut. Will Repton has returned from Tibet, the only survivor of a bloody massacre, with physical and mental scars few know about. And he has no time to be lauded as a hero; another quest awaits him in China, and Will must gather enough resources to make this critical journey. He certainly didn't expect his attention, or his desire, to be diverted by Charlotte Baker. Charlotte believes that she and Will are kindred spirits, and risks her reputation by defying societal rules to prove that they are a match. Will knows he fancies Charlotte, but is more driven by his secret quest. When temptation catches up and throws them together, will Charlotte be able to make the journey to the center of Will's heart, or will they find themselves separated by a gulf wider than the ocean Will wishes to cross? Passionate characters and personal adventures come alive in Lord's post-Regency series opener.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
