I’m very fond of Sharon Cullars’ books, and I was pleased to see that she has a new release at Loose-Id.

Here’s the blurb for Gold Mountain:

In 1865, the hope for gold has spurred many to seek their fortunes in California, the place the Chinese call Gum San or “Gold Mountain.” Amidst this backdrop, Quiang, a new Chinese immigrant, works the dangerous rails hoping to save enough money to send home to his parents. In town, Leah and Clara, two enterprising women from New York, have plans of their own to grow a restaurant and laundry business. However, both plans go awry when Quiang and Leah meet one fateful day. What starts as a budding attraction soon grows into tumultuous desire despite the cultural and language barriers between them.

Initially resistant, Leah succumbs to passion following a tragic loss that leaves her vulnerable and alone. With hopes for a future that now includes Leah, Quiang embarks on a perilous path as he leaves the railroad behind for a more profitable position as a courier for The Tong, henchmen for the dangerous Triad. Quiang soon finds that navigating the secretive life of a courier brings more danger than he has ever faced on the railroad, dangers that not only threaten to tear him and Leah apart, but may cost them their lives as well.

Sounds good, yes? Even for a hysterical.

By the way, it has been duly noted that Loose-Id seem to be trying to release more M/F books lately. Long may it continue. *g*

And seeing as it doesn’t happen very often in Romanceland, I’m gonna give a nod to Loose-Id for their wonderful homage to Black History Month. If you’re a reader who doesn’t mind reading books featuring heroines and heroes who aren’t white, you’ll find some decent stories there.

You can find my review of Sharon Cullar’s book, Again, here.


  • Ooh, I just bought this yesterday to take on vacation with me. I’m looking forward to the bits of free time for reading almost as much as the trip itself (to Charleston where I’ve never been). I would’ve purchased due to the blurb alone but the excerpt completely sold me. This is my kind of book–star crossed lovers and history.


  • Now that is a lovely cover.


  • That sounds REALLY interesting. Thanks!


  • Thanks for the heads up on this one! The cover and blurb looks great.

    Samhain have done good too, with Ann Somerville’s soon-to-be-released book as well.


    Nice to see the characters represented on their covers as well.


  • Thanks for the write-up Karen. 🙂

    I’m also very fond of this author.


  • Reporting back post-vacation. This was a very good read and kept me thoroughly entertained during the flight. I’d definitely recommend if you like cross-cultural romances as I do.


  • Just finished reading Gold Mountain and is was so, sexy and romantic and very enjoyable. I wished it was longer!

    Thanks again Karen for posting about Gold Mountain because I would have not known otherwise.

    I hope Loose-Id, as well as the other epubs will publish more cross-cultural romances
