Book Description
When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother's side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairy tales.
Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park and left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair.
Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.

*This is an exciting collaboration between a Steampunk writer and a Paranormal Romance author. Together we are blending the two cultures as seamlessly as possible so that fans of both genre will love what we’ve come up with.*

I have read only one other steampunk book before now, and I absolutely loved it! So when I was asked to review this one, I jumped at the chance. It sounded like something that I would enjoy!
I mean, seriously, the mix of faeries and steampunk?!? Yeah, odd mixture, but WOW! These authors deserve a pat on the back for this one! They were able to mix two worlds in a way that I’ve never seen done before!
While there were elements of steampunk, I think the focus was more on the fae, which keeps the reader from being overwhelmed with a genre that they might not have read before.
There were twists and turns galore. I’ve read a lot of books that have tried to capture the true essence of a plot twist, but have fallen flat. Not this one. It works! It REALLY works!
I think my only gripe would be that it was too short! LOL I wanted more, but I guess I’ll have to wait and *stalk* the authors to see what’s next!
Seriously, give it a shot. Even if you have never even heard of Steampunk, pick this one up. You might be surprised!

So, grab a copy, settle in, ‘cause you’re in for a ride! Oh…and if you find out about a second book…let me know, k?
