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.

About the Author

Though USA TODAY bestselling author Anne Renwick holds a Ph.D. in biology and greatly enjoyed tormenting the overburdened undergraduates who were her students, fiction has always been her first love. Today, she writes steampunk romance, placing a new kind of biotech in the hands of mad scientists, proper young ladies and determined villains.

Anne brings an unusual perspective to steampunk. A number of years spent locked inside the bowels of a biological research facility left her permanently altered. In her steampunk world, the Victorian fascination with all things anatomical led to a number of alarming biotechnological advances. Ones that the enemies of Britain would dearly love to possess.

An vivid story of late 1800's medicine, small town tall tales, and a romance that could possibly be rekindled. Piyali's first assignment is to visit this small town concerning the health of a certain young lady. When she arrives, a figure from her past, Evan (the town pharmacist) seems to be withholding the whole truth about a little blue frog that happened to bite the young lady. If Piyali has any chance of curing her before it's too late the truth will have to be exposed.

All's not what it seems in this small village in Wales. A Queen's agent and doctor, Piyali thought that her broken heart was starting to mend, but seeing her almost-fiancee again is breaking it all over (especially with him standing over a simpering girl). Hope dare he. She waited for him to return from the Amazon and returns with no note, nothing. But she is here as a professional for the strange blue lesion received by a blue frog that Evan seems to know more than her is letting on. Evan longs to renew is acquaintance with Piyali, but things are not what they seem. In order to protect her, her must drive her away and find that damn blue frog before things get out of hand. It's an enchanting story of second chances and intrigue, of mysticism and science. You'll find yourself engrossed in the loves of the characters so you hope along with them for a HEA.
