Review

 “Pure charm.…You’ll be hooked!”
New York Times Bestselling Author Heather Graham

“Wildly inventive…lady inventors, sexy renegade lawmen, airships, acid rock, and flying horses—Her Sky Cowboy has it all!”
—Zoë Archer

“Contemporary romance author Ciotta’s first steampunk series blasts off with this exhilarating riff on bodice-ripping romance, hurling 20th-century technology into an alternate Victorian England…With Darcy twins Jules and Simon poised for their own adventures, Ciotta (the Cupcake Club books) has the start of a delectable series.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Masterfully written, with an intriguing plot and a sassy, strong and intelligent heroine at its center. Add to that a heroic cowboy love interest and a supporting cast of distinctive characters, and this story is one fanciful, flying adventure.” —Romantic Times, Top Pick, 4 ½ stars

Her Sky Cowboy by Beth Ciotta
Paranormal Romance -Nov. 6th, 2012
4 stars

Amelia Darcy is young, impetuous and intensely curious. When her inventor father dies in a freak accident she rebels against her mother who wants her to conform to Victorian standards and marry well. Amelia has plans to recoup her family's honor. When her family gets an invitation from a mysterious benefactor to hunt for a historical invention of great importance and win a fabulous prize, Amelia is inspired to trek out on her own. She has decides to hunt for an invention by da Vinci- the ornithopter. However, her plans go awry when she crashes on her journey. But luckily she is saved by a sky cowboy named Tucker Gentry. A man wanted by the law but with a heart of gold and a crew of misfits who quickly adopt Amelia as one of their own. Together they soon the find themselves helping Amelia on her search but others want Amelia's secrets, too.

This was a lighthearted steampunk romance. I liked how the author mixes Victorian times with a touch of the west and the highly imaginative world of fascinating mechanisms. The villain, who is actually looking to find the means to recreate a time machine is devilishly evil and sinister. The hero, Tucker, has been falsely accused of murder and I liked how Amelia believes in him and gives him a reason to believe in himself again. This book has a great spirit of adventure. The main characters are original and appealing, I only felt that the heroine was sometime a bit too naive and impetuous. She was very fortunate that she met Tucker who watches out for her and loves her. This series will continue with Amelia's two brothers who also want to find a worthy invention and will each have their own book.

Her Sky Cowboy is filled with untamed adventure, zany characters and outrageous fun.

I'm new to the steampunk genre and this book was easy for me to escape into. I loved the mashup of Victorian England, inventors, dirigibles, gadgets and the unique twist Beth took in her world building. The world was FUN! But I adored the characters. The heroine Amelia is feisty and brave and not willing to let her brothers go off on a treasure hunt and leave her out. She has clues that could lead her to the perfect prize to win Queen Victoria's challenge and so she sets off. I got a kick out of the contraption she flew in and one of my favorite scenes is when she nearly crashes into Tucker's dirigible! Tucker is a delicious hero. I love his courage and character and the way he viewed the world and judged everyone on their own merit. He admires the fly girl, Amelia's, skill in crash landing her vehicle is attracted to her bravery and attitude. This is a romance! And it's a yummy one. I enjoyed watching them get in deeper than they'd planned as they pursue the treasure and take you on their treasure hunting adventure. This book flew by and I didn't look up till I was done. :)
I am looking forward to the continuing adventures of the Darcy family in the sequels.

The first few pages of this novel drew me in raising my hopes but I found the rest of the book rather uneven. Our heroine Miss Amelia Darcy loses her eccentric inventor father during his attempt to create a rocket ship. Shortly after, she and her two brothers each receive a letter inviting them to partake in a competition to find a lost technological invention for Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. In order to save her family from their financially embarrassing situation, Amelia heads off on her kitecycle to track down an invention her father had once told her about. Her vehicle of choice however collides with the airship of Tucker Gentry, ex Air Marshall and sky pirate cowboy.

Amelia was not my favourite heroine. She vacillated from strong, independent and full of adventurous spirit one minute to an immature, naive woman who made really silly decisions. She used phrases like "blinking hell" and "crikey" so often it was jarring. I suspect that the change in her personality occurred so Tucker could prove his prowess but it still irked me. For some reason Amelia was obsessed with politics and judged people based on whether they are Old Worlders, New Worlders or Flatliners. This affected her relationship with Tucker and I really felt she should have had the maturity to judge his worth herself by his actions rather than a political affiliation. Tucker is motivated by two things - money and sex. He needs the money to clear his name which was tainted with accusations of murder and theft. I didn't appreciate the way he got angry with Amelia for "leading him on" after they had first had sex and he discovered she was a virgin. On the plus side, at least Amelia and Tucker discussed issues they had with each other and misunderstandings were resolved rather than dragging on.

Let me first confess that I'm a total newbie to steampunk. I probably wouldn't have picked up HER SKY COWBOY if Beth Ciotta didn't happen to be one of my favorite authors. I figured that even if I didn't like the genre, Beth's trademark quirky characters and unique sense of humor will make up for it.

It turned out, the alternate Victorian England was so much fun, especially all the inventions and adventures that filled the pages of the book. Even secondary characters are interesting and full-dimensional. But what again made Beth's book a five-star for me was her main characters. Amelia Darcy is headstrong, sassy, and way ahead of her time. An inventor, adventurer, and a pilot in her own right, she makes a good match for her aeronautical hero. Tucker Gentry, aka Sky Cowboy, is an outlaw with morals and noble goals. Probably in another book this oxymoron would be a stretch for me, but Ms. Ciotta pulls it off nicely.

Not willing to conform and marry for covenience, Amelia embarks on an international quest to find a hidden treasure of historical significance. She needs it to win a contest to honor Queen Victoria and to save her family from financial trouble. In the process, she will risk not only her life but her heart as well.

I believe The Glorious Victorious Darcys are going to be great series, and I can't wait to get my hands on the stories of Amelia's twin brothers, Simon and Jules. Let the adventure go on!
