The Passion of the Purple Plumeria
Colonel William Reid has returned home from India to retire near his children, who are safely stowed at an academy in Bath. Upon his return to the Isles, however, he finds that one of his daughters has vanished, along with one of her classmates-- Gwendolyn Meadows' little sister. Thrown together by circumstance, Gwen and William must cooperate to track down the young ladies before others with nefarious intent get their hands on them. But Gwen's partnership with quick-tongued, roguish William may prove to be even more of an adventure for her than finding the lost girls....
