This is my first official steampunk of any sort. I am kind of ashamed to say that. I did not think the genre would have any appeal to me. Apparently, I was wrong...like usual.
There was literally nothing to dislike about Janette. She was a smart, ambitious and spunky heroine and she lost none of it when she met her hero. She had a goal and she stuck to it. I also like that she accomplished her goals without Darius holding her hand. Darius was a bit of a conundrum. He ran a bit hold and cold. He confused me as much as he confused Janette. But I did like I'm as much as I was confounded by him. He did have this authority about him that I found really interesting.
Mary Wine is one of my "go to" Highlander romance authors. I may not always love her Highlander romances but I usually like them well enough to read every book she releases. But this one, a steampunk romance, goes beyond any of the others. I loved this book. I loved both the hero and the heroine, the mystery, and the whole secret society thing. It was perfect. I can't wait to read the rest of this series.
