Blue Africa is a historical romance set in British East Africa, 1897. Miss Cassandra Littlemen has grown up in London, sharing her brother’s passion for butterflies. She is determined to prove to the world that women can become entomologists, but the English scientific community and her father do not approve of female scientists. Intent on fulfilling her lifelong dream of capturing rare African butterflies and sending them back to England, she sneaks onto a royally-sponsored African expedition posing as her brother. Expecting to find the doddering Mr. John Keep in charge, she is dismayed to discover his bachelor son, William Keep, in his place. Can her disguise fool this exceptional scientist? Newly knighted and secretly engaged to Queen Victoria’s granddaughter, Sir William Keep, has been sent to Africa to prove his worth to the English scientific community, the royal aristocracy, and his own family. William is unwavering in his desire to achieve great scientific findings like his famous father who works for the Prince Albert Museum in London. And to please the father he so admires. Although this desire has lead him to agree to a royal match and a royal life he’s not sure he is fit for. But first, William must get this headstrong Miss Littlemen back to England before the Queen finds out. But can he do it before he loses his heart to this lovely blue butterfly catcher?
