The Silk Trilogy

This trilogy started with Silk and Shadows, my Count of Monte Cristo story, in which a wealthy, enigmatic prince comes to London to avenge himself again a well-born man who has committed unforgivable crimes.  While I was researching Asia to find a suitably obscure backstory for Peregrine, I came across the true story of a rescue mission to Bokhara in Uzbekistan.  I'd always been fascinated by the vast mysterious center of Central Asia, and I immediately started thinking about a story inspired by that rescue mission.
That became Silk and Secrets, a story of high adventure and lost love regained, which led right into Veils of Silk, a marriage of convenience story set in India.  The time period is late 1830s to early 1840s, a time when travel and technology were expanding the world, but there wasn't yet the heaviness of the late Victorian period.
