Kiss of Steel: A dark, fresh take on vampires and steampunk London (London Steampunk Book 1)
“darkly atmospheric and delectably sexy.” –Booklist, starred review
Honoria Todd has more secrets than most people and she’s hiding them in Whitechapel. Blade is the master of the rookeries and agrees to protect her, but at what price?
Most people avoid the dreaded Whitechapel district. For Honoria Todd, it’s the last safe haven as she hides from the Blue Blood aristocracy that rules London through power and fear.
Blade rules the rookeries-no one dares cross him. It’s been said he faced down the Echelon’s army single–handedly, that ever since being infected by the blood–craving he’s been quicker, stronger, and almost immortal.
When Honoria shows up at his door, his tenuous control comes close to snapping. She’s so…innocent. He doesn’t see her backbone of steel-or that she could be the very salvation he’s been seeking.
A unique, sexy paranormal romance, Bec McMaster’s London Steampunk novels will appeal to fans of Gail Carriger, Kristen Callihan’s Darkest London series, and the Blud series by Delilah Dawson.
