"Action, adventure, steampunk, and blazing hot seduction...Bec McMaster offers it all."—Eve Silver, author of Sins of the Flesh A brilliantly creative debut where vampires, werewolves, and clockwork creatures roam the mist–shrouded streets of London... When Nowhere is Safe Most 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.

When Honoria shows up at his door, his tenuous control comes close to snapping. She's so...innocent. He doesn't see her backbone of steel—or that she could be the very salvation he's been seeking.

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....
