His Pregnant Princess Bride, Catherine Mann
His Pregnant Princess Bride (Bayou Billionaires) - Catherine Mann

I enjoyed this romance. I received this for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4* rating. The heroine in this goes back and forth so much, it's hard for anyone to tell what she will do. In the meantime the hero is almost clueless in what she wants to make her happy. Once she allows him to talk more, they finally find out. Interesting couple. A little bit too much sexual scenes for my taste but good story.

A pedestrian pastiche of a steampunk mystery
Affinity Bridge - George Mann

Fog-enshrouded Victorian London is hardly a safe city in this steampunk thriller.  A “revenant plague” runs rampant through the East End, turning the infected into decaying cannibals.  A mysterious glowing policeman is strangling people to death.  And an airship carrying fifty passengers crashes, yet the clockwork automaton piloting it has vanished without a trace.  To solve these crimes Scotland Yard turns to Sir Maurice Newberry, anthropologist turned Crown investigator.  With the aid of his assistant Veronica Hobbes he apples his intellect (and the occasional fist) towards untangling these mysteries and defeating the Empire’s enemies.

 

George Mann’s novel is a mystery that evokes the atmospherics of a familiar setting refreshed by its steampunk elements.  Yet the book is hampered by pedestrian writing that turns it into little more than a pastiche of familiar elements.  The plot itself is primarily a rush of events, with character development implied rather than undertaken.  The main protagonist comes across as a pale imitation of Sherlock Homes (must every Victorian detective be an opium addict?), while his relationship with his assistant seems to be little more than a Victorian derivative of the Mulder-Scully dynamic.  It all makes for a book that, while an entertaining read, is not one that has much to distinguish it beyond the many other works in the field.

Batwoman was allowed to date girls by the higher ups at DC, but she wasn't allowed to do so to celebrate her engagement, since she wasn't allowed to get married.

Nope
Batman (2016-) #36 - Tom King,Jordie Bellaire,Clay Mann,Seth Mann

Batman and Superman are nagged to talk about the upcoming wedding by Lois and Catwoman. 

 

No one talks about why Batwoman wasn't allowed to get married to her girlfriend because it wasn't a straight wedding.
