Romance? Yes. Steampunk? Not so much.
on February 17, 2013
I had mixed feelings about this one. The writing was tight and the romance was pretty steamy. The adventure aspect was rather well done too, but the steampunk, not so much. It was billed as a Steampunk Romance, but the steampunk part seemed to be more of an afterthought. There was an airship, but it was barely described, and yes they have laser pistols, but barely use them. A couple of other devices were mentioned here and there, but none are integral to the plot. It was a bit disappointing. I was hoping for a steampunk adventure with a dash of romance and ended up with a romance novel. That being said, if you're looking for a good romance, you'll probably enjoy this and the price is right, it just wasn't much of a steampunk.
