Editorial Reviews

Review

Rich with detail, history collides with fantasy in Clockwork Blue. Ms. Harchar creates a vivid and riveting world where two pixies scheme to save England as Napoleon's treaty appears to be failing. Their misson: to get Nicola Moore and Malcolm (Earl of Falconwood) for fall in love and marry. But Nicola saw how miserable her grandmother's life became after she married to save England. Nicola wants no part of such a marriage. Meanwhile, Malcolm has ruthless plans of his own. He desires a marriage with Nicola, for many reasons none of which have anything to do with love. The pixies are sure to fail. I couldn't stop reading...by N.T.

From the Author

I had so much fun writing this book. Incorporating the magic, the steampunk elements with the romance made the story come alive for me. Although many parts of the story was light and humorous, a deep tragedy was revealed throughout involving Malcolm (the hero) and his brother. The hero reminded me of Gene Forrester in A Separate Peace by John Knowles. Malcolm was tormented by a hunting accident which ended with him shooting his older, more likeable brother. Had he done it on purpose, out of jealousy. This is his internal conflict, and the reason he Nicola's blue dye--because the color reminds him of his brother's eyes, something that helps him to feel closer to his brother and, in a way, honor him. He must get over this guilt--or come to accept his past actions--before he can love Nicola.

More About the Author

Gloria Harchar is the author of Lumiere Romances, a series of historical romances set in Regency England with steampunk and fantasy elements. She is also the author of the Wenches of Wales, a new series of sexy Regency romances.

She holds a Master's of Science degree in Instructional Design and Technology. Although she's been a successful, passionate teacher for years, her true joy is writing romances with a sprinkling of mystery and suspense in her plots.

Too, she has a tendency to include geeky inventions in her stories, even before the steampunk genre took off. The Lumière Romances is evidence of these proclivities. Rich with detail, vivid with well-drawn characters and Techno Mid-Summer Night's Dream minus the difficult Shakespearean language are comments from reviewers after reading her books. Even her Wenches of Wales have smart heroines who know what they want and don't hesitate to go after it.

Gloria loves to travel, hike and swim. Texas is where she can be seen riding her bicycle with her two adorable, 3-pound Maltese dogs strapped securely to her front pack.

This is the first "steampunk genre," I have read and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Clockwork Blue is well written, full of romance and magic with some history thrown in. I think readers will enjoy the fantasy of the Pixies and their role in the story. Happy reading!

I've never read anything like this before! It reminds me of a kind of Techno Mid-Summer Night's Dream minus the difficult Shakespearean language! It was so much fun--especially the hats. The Pixies were engaging and real and the plot action-packed. I loved the fast-moving action. Harcher has pulled off this unique world and created an entertaining and satisfying read!

Always enjoy Gloria Harchar's writings. Clockwork Blue is another example of how creative and entertaining an author she is. I have followed Gloria's career since her first book and consider her a friend as well as an accomplished author.
You won't be disappointed.

Clockwork Blue (The Lumière Chronicles)This book gave me fits! It is a great tale, but the inclusion of explicit sex scenes caused me great pain. IMHO it stands alone without these 'Lust in the Dust' bits added in. I would not want any teen to pick up a copy, which is sad. I wish Gloria would have included a warning in her excellent intro.

I've been a fan of Gloria Harchar's work for some time. After a long wait, she does not disappoint. I was a little wary of the steampunk, but I was thoroughly proved wrong. I absolutely love the story! I can't wait for the next installment! Gloria continues to inspire my own writing.

The future of England is at stake. Malcolm and Nicola can't just marry if they're going to release the magic that can save the country, they have to fall in love. Steampunk adds a fun twist to this fast-paced fantasy.
