Author Note: Eighteenth century naval captain, Hugh Hawksmoor, is determined to avenge his brother's death. His quest takes him into the gleaming future of skyscrapers and cell phones. Joss O'Malley is determined to save the map-making company her mother founded. One map will change both of their lives. Hugh's deft touch and Old World charm stir Joss's senses like a storm at sea, but when Hugh lures Joss into a treacherous journey back through time, there's not a twenty-first-century trick that can save her--that is until she applies her instincts to a course she thought was set and discovers the high seas can hold some scandalous surprises.
Like Joss, the scrappy heroine of Aching for Always, I've always loved maps. I would pore over them as a child, wondering about places from the past and places I'd never visited. And as I got older, and began to travel, my enchantment with them grew. To me they are as close to magic as anything in this world can get, unlocking secrets to places both real and imaginary.
