You’ll Find It All in the Golden City
After digging a fortune from the frozen fields of the Klondike, August Wolff heads south to the “Golden City” of San Francisco, hoping to start over and put the unsolved loss of his wife and daughter behind him. The turn of the twentieth century brings him even more success, but the distractions of a place some call the new Sodom and Gomorrah can’t fill the gaping hole in his life.
Amelia Starling is a wildly talented artist caught in the straightjacket of Old New York society. Making a heart-breaking decision, she moves to San Francisco to further her career, all the while living with the pain of a sacrifice no woman should ever have to make.
When Gus and Lia meet, they connect as two damaged yet resilient souls. But the past, shrouded in mystery, prevents the two of them from finding a way forward. Unwilling to lead what she considers an immoral lifestyle, Lia leaves San Francisco and vows to begin again in Europe.
The Golden City offers everything a man could wish for except the answers Gus is desperate to find. But find them he must, or he and Lia have no chance at all.

"A.B. Michaels is a strong writer who has created compelling, flawed but very likeable characters. Even the more minor characters have interesting backstories, and are just as driven and complicated as the main characters...I think romance readers will enjoy this book, and probably this series, but readers of historical fiction will also like The Art of Love. It's also a quick read, mainly because once you start, you will not want to put it down." - Sabrina Ricci, Digital Pubbing
