Interesting take on vampires and how the author built her society.The steampunk elements were very light. Some bio mechanics, mention of a steam cab -- that was kinda it.I liked the characters for the most part and I found the romantic chemistry was well presented.But the plot and pacing were not sp...
A History Nut's Romantic State of Mind
a highly entertaining read. Paranormal, vampire and steampunk are not exactly my genre but i enjoyed it. the book is strong in drama and sexual energy but weak in romance. However i imagine, in this genere, sexual tension is the equivalence of romance. Blade reminds me a little of Derek from Lisa Kl...

I am so tired that I am sleeping while writing this, but I like to dot down my thoughts on book right after I finish them else it disappears from my mind. I am old now, and my brain is full of my job...which is spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations and numbers. So getting this out of the way....

There's a lot here that's de rigueur for the genre: plucky scientist's daughter, hat pins, D...

When I decided to go with Steampunk Romance for my personal reading challenge in April 2014, I totally had no idea about the criteria of a good steampunk romance. Based on my lack of knowledge, I only knew Steampunk Romance as romance set in alternative (usually) Victorian age, combining historical ...

I don't even know how to do a review on this one. Its very difficult to describe the feel of this world, without experiencing it for oneself. The world was exhausting, dark, depressing, scary, yet utterly fascinating. And even though things seemed hopeless for much of it all, it was Honoria and B...

I thought the ending was rather abrupt, and some things a bit convenient, but damn was that a good book! 33% Status Update: "How have I let this book sit on my nook for so long? This book is so freakin' good and so freakin' hot. I am loving every minute of it so...

When Nowhere Is SafeMost people avoid the dreaded Whitechapel district. For Honoria Todd, it's the last safe haven. But at what price?Blade is known as the master of the rookeries—no one dares cross him. It's been said he faced down the Echelon's army single-handedly, that ever since being infected ...
