Ingenious Victorian contraptions. Enchanted farmlands. Can a struggling orphan switch gears and run full steam into freedom?
England, 1868. Nineteen-year-old Annmar Masterson refuses to be an underpaid pawn in a lecherous businessman’s steam-engine factory. Escaping the boss’s advances by taking an advertising job in the country, the young illustrator is astonished when she discovers the rural valley is rife with magical creatures. Her wonder turns to horror when the night guard shifters and their handsome polecat leader are nearly killed by a mysterious swarm of crop-eating pests.
Accustomed to her prim and proper former lifestyle, Annmar worries not even her blossoming magic will help her fit into the rowdy farming community. But when the out-of-place city girl heals the flirtatious guardian, she sparks a powerful connection…making her rare power the target of an evil mastermind.
Will she find a new home in the arms of the coy shifter, or will the wild magic of Blighted Basin prove as dangerous as the city?
