When jaded city girl Maddy McIntyre packs up and leaves Adelaide for a new job in the country, it's not only a chance at a fresh start.  Six months ago, the first guy she'd ever loved shattered her heart before moving home to Broken Hill. Deep down inside, Maddy is hoping that living in the same town will give her an opportunity to prove to Luke that she's one temptation he can't resist.

But when she arrives in Broken Hill, Luke White is not the same guy she knew in the city.  And it soon seems very clear that he doesn't want her there. Although Maddy settles in quickly, excelling at work and partying with her new friends, she can't understand why Luke is remaining so distant. Particularly when all her instincts are telling her that they're meant to be together –  and that he feels the same burning attraction.

As Maddy learns more about Luke's family and background, she begins to understand that his mixed messages are caused by balancing what's expected of him with what he really wants. Maddy gave Luke her heart long ago and, despite their differences, she knows she'll only ever be happy with her hot country boy. But how can she convince him that she's the risk he needs to take?

Just as Brock Harker starts having trouble dealing with the 85 missions he's flown, he gets reassigned home when they want to rotate him out of combat duty. But that doesn't mean he's out of the war. Home is the only clue to finding his wife Amy even if he hadn't heard from her since before Pearl Harbor. After all he was in China with the Flying Tigers when the war started and she's half Japanese. Coming home, even to find her, isn't a pleasant thought though. He was thrown out for even announcing he was engaged. There are only more questions when his wife ends up in the only place she should never be. Home with the man that threw him out. Then, when they find his father dead after an argument, he's considered a prime suspect. No one is who they seem to be as the clues unravel and more bodies pile up. Finding his wife turns out to be the least of his worries now as everything he knows about home comes into question. Even his father. More than murder hides in the mist.

Steampunk Journal Giveaway!

I wanted to do something a bit different as a giveaway, so I took myself to the genius crafter who has customized journals for me before and asked for another steampunk creation. The clasp on the front is magnetic and finished with a radio tube. There are other found objects, including parts of old London maps, keyholes, and more intriguing pieces. The insides of the covers are decorated as well as the front and back, and there is also a bookmark included. (see the link below for more pictures)

For those of you wondering, this prize is open to everyone, and I will ship it internationally. How to win this treasure? Leave a comment below and tell me something about how you bring steampunk into your world–reading? music? costume? or something else wonderful and quirky? Or, are you just discovering it, because that counts, too! I know there are readers for whom the Baskerville Affair was their first venture into the genre. Tell me about it and you’re entered in the draw. Contest closes at the end of the month.
