Fantasy Steampunk | Romance

Victoria's work with automatons has gained her renown and changed the face of London. But her concern that the clockworks are taking too many jobs away from humans, creating social unrest, is ignored. Given the ugly mood of the underclass, she fears more outbreaks of violence similar to the murder spree of the notorious Southwark Slasher.

Dash, unemployed thanks to the clockworks, has pledged fealty to The Brotherhood, a group determined to bring about the downfall of the automatons by any means necessary. His plan to kidnap Victoria goes awry when the unorthodox scientist pledges her assistance to their cause.

Despite their opposite social classes, a bond grows between them, and Victoria begins to feel emotions she never expected for the passionate Dash. But when the Slasher strikes close to home, Dash and Victoria realize that the boundaries of polite society are far from the only threat to their happiness..

Re: Like Clockwork

I haven't read any steampunk but the description of your book has defiantly caught my attention. I may need to keep it a try.

I'm not quite sure what steampunk is, but the premise sounds like fun, and I can always read anything that sounds even vaguely historical, even if turns out to be alternate history. At present I've got a book named INCA waiting for me. It's about the Inca not being conquered by the Spanish. Unfortunately, I missed the day this week at eHarlequin where I could have got your book free.

I have never heard of "steampunk", but the book sounds very interesting.

Thanks for telling us about the history of your book.

You introduced me to a term that I'm not familiar with, but am very interested in reading now. The premise is far-fetched, but quite intriguing. It takes quite an imagination, along with a way with words, to be able to weave such a story!! I also wanted to be an English major, but when I spoke to my Mother about my dreams when I was in High School, she didn't understand, and made fun of my ideas, so I never fulfilled them. Silly me!! That book has always been in the back of my mind, and perhaps one day I'll put that pen to paper. Have a Merry Christmas and a great New Year!!

Boy does this have a lot of stuff in it. I didn't know about the term steampunk before.

I am new to the term Steam-punk but love the idea of it.
