Romance Historical | Fantasy Steampunk

Being the only female air corps captain on an international route can be difficult enough to do with the normal rigors of piloting while having one's mettle tested by the crew, but the discovery of two unconscious stowaways creates its own problems.

When Captain Octavia Pye learns that her "guests" believe they were thrown into her world through some sort of nanoelectrical accident, she is hard-pressed to ensure Jack Fletcher and his sister Hallie are not as crazy as they sound. Despite negotiating the eccentric character traits of her crew and three or four double- and triple-crosses within the political system, Octavia still feels a strong fondness toward Jack, which she's never felt toward her few previous liaisons.

Katie MacAlister, author of THE LAST OF THE RED-HOT VAMPIRES, is charting new territory with her foray into a new perspective on Steampunk.

SUMMARY

The hero of STEAMED is Jack Fletcher, a computer engineer. When one of his nanoelectromechanical system experiments explodes, the impact sends him hurtling into the world of his favorite novel - a Victorian-era world of steampower, aether guns, corsets and goggles. And a world where he meets the lovely, red-haired, airship captain Octavia Pye.
