Victorian Elegance Meets Steamy Exploration
Steampunk erotic romance is shiny brass and crushed velvet, mechanical inventions and romantic conventions, sexual fantasy and kinky fetish. This unique collection includes tales of adventure and intrigue, enhanced by imaginative gadgets and clever automatons, populated by the passionate, free-spirited rebels and dreamers steampunk is known for. In Nikki Magennis's "Make Your Own Miracles," a lust-filled lady orders a machine to relieve the agony of her longing; while a brilliant inventor and a wanton engineer collaborate with ecstatic results in Saskia Walker's "Hearts of the Daedalus." In Lynn Townsend's "Golden Moment," an invention leads the heroine to exactly the right lover at precisely the right time. And the time bandits of Vida Bailey's "Undergrounded" indulge their desires, just one step ahead of the law. Tantalizing steam engine dreams and clockwork visions await!
"Turn the page with me and step into the new worlds...where airships rule the skies, where romance and intellect are valued over money and social status, where lovers boldly discover each other's bodies, minds and hearts." from the foreword by Meljean Brook
"Wright's anthology of sizzling steampunk romance is a sensual, passionate, and humorous collection of alternate histories, fantastical worlds, and time travel romps. The heroines are strong-willed, intelligent, technologically savvy, and elegant in their fashionable corsets. Some are attracted to men who are half-machine, as in Sylvia Day's 'Iron Hard,' Christine d'Abo's 'The Undeciphered Heart,' and Nikki Magennis's 'Make Your Own Miracles.' Others are seduced by the wonders of flying airships and robots in Saskia Walker's 'Heart of the Daedalus' and Sacchi Green's 'Fog, Flight and Moonlight.' There are same-sex affairs aplenty; the best is Anya Richards's powerful 'Rescue My Heart.' Not content to titillate, these passionate vignettes will also satisfy steampunk fans intellectually with nuanced discussions of self-sufficient women and the roles that machines play in our lives."
