    Cloud Leopards Daughter
    On the gold fields of the colonies, enemies are easily made. In the confines of a ship, they can turn deadly. For readers of Bryce Courtenay's POTATO FACTORY, Philippa Gregory and Tracy Chevalier. When Kitty and Rian Farrell sail their schooner Katipo III in Dunedin Harbour in 1863, they are on tenterhooks. The new Otago gold fields have attracted all-comers, including their friend Wong Fu from Ballarat, who has sent a message for their help. To their surprise, Wong Fu reveals he is more than a mere fortune seeker; he is in fact the Cloud Leopard tong master of the Wong family, and his daughter has been kidnapped and taken to opium-ridden China to be forced into marriage. Rian and Kitty agree to try to find Bao, but as they sail closer to their quarry, the stakes jump dramatically. Kitty's adopted daughter Amber is taken during a stopover, and Rian suspects the same party is behind both kidnappings. Little do they know the worst threat lies closer to home. The Cloud's Leopard's Daughter takes us through dangerous and unpredictable shoals of love, lust, greed and opium in search for two fiery but vulnerable women - puppets in others' calculated games.

    Cold Shoulder

    Lieutenant Lorraine Page had everything -- a devoted husband, two beautiful daughters and an impressive career with the Homicide Squad. It's impossible to believe that she could be thrown out of the police force and end up on Skid Row.
