Book four in the London Steampunk series features
Nighthawk gaurds, Perry and Garret. Both smart and deadly
in their own rights, these two paired together make one
killer investigative team. However, neither one ever
believed that the two of them could be something more
than just partners at work. Yet that is exactly what
happens. When adrenaline and lust mix together, Perry and
Garret will find it difficult to fight their desire.
FORGED BY DESIRE is definitely one of my favorite books
this year and definitely one of my favorites of the
series. There's just something unique about Bec
McMaster's writing. Not only is the book lush with
details and worldbuilding, but the characters are all
well-developed and realistic as well. There is so much to
love about the leads in this story. Perry is a wonderful
heroine who continues to deny her attraction for Garret
and will continue to do so until her dying breath. Not
one to show weakness, Perry proves that her will is
strong, but her passion for Garret runs deeper than she
Similarly, Garret proves to be a worthy hero for Perry.
Despite how much he wants to resist her for her own
safety, their bond that they have created while working
together over the years has transformed into something
else entirely and that is the basis in which McMaster
works with when building their romance. If you're a fan
of Kresley Cole's No Rest for the Wicked, then you'll
definitely enjoy the chase of this book.
Another thing that must be mentioned is the romance.
Passion has rarely reached this limit in other books I've
read. McMaster really has outdone herself with FORGED IN
With the action and mystery still a major part of this
book, the romance never once gets overshadowed and that,
I think, is a skill of balance that not many authors can
FORGED BY DESIRE combines action, mystery and fiery
romance in a spellbinding way. I couldn't put this book
down and only yearned for more once I was through with
it. This is a definite must read for everyone!
Ten years ago, Perry fled her thrall contract to find
sanctuary among the Nighthawks. In that time, she's become a
respected woman of the Guard, and she's wanted Garret Reed
for as long as she can remember. But when a new case takes a
chillingly familiar turn, Perry finds herself once again in
the path of a madman...only this time, there's nowhere left
A desire that can't be tempered
Out of their depth and racing against time, Perry and
Garrett must learn to trust the desire sparking between
them...or risk losing themselves forever to the darkness
stalking London's streets.
