A small Welsh village. An interrupted romance. A rogue frog on the loose threatening their future.
New recruit to the Queen's agents, Dr. Piyali Mukherji is given a simple first assignment. Travel to the small Welsh village of Aberwyn and solve the mystery of a young woman's blue skin lesion. A challenging task, for the alarming infection is unlike anything she's seen before--and it's spreading.
Evan Tredegar, the town's pharmacist and the only man to ever capture her heart, knows more than he's telling. Despite his efforts to push her away, her touch reawakens old desires. As more villagers fall victim to the strange disease, he'll have no choice but to reveal his secrets, even if it means sacrificing his freedom.
Together they must move past broken promises, capture a rogue frog, and stop the infection before it spreads out of control.

Love this steampunk romance featuring a dart-gun toting, brainiac female Indian agent/doctor, her pharmacologist once-and-future fiancé, a disappearing blue frog with a parasitic hitch-hiker, and an incipient epidemic. The elements of steampunk, biological science, sexy second chance romance, and spy skullduggery blend seamlessly. The result is superb entertainment - a novella that begs to be read in one go, and the promise of more from this very readable author. Thus ends my voluntary and independent ARC review.
Anne Renwick truly delivers in this steampunk romance. I love the characters and the storyline. It was action packed with a bit of humor and some romance. I love how she brought together history and sci fi. I’ll definitely be reading more from this series!
A love lost and then found again. Spies hidden in the Welsh countryside. A backdrop of Steampunk blended with scientific elements. All of these add up to an action packed story with a side of romance. Great characters, great story, fantastic world building. An all around excellent read!
I received an ARC. This is my honest review.
