A Clockwork Christmas. If you haven't heard about it yet, it's a collection of wicked steampunk novellas with a holiday theme, available on Dec 5 -- just in time for Christmas!
Jenny Schwartz's contribution, Wanted: One Scoundrel,is beautifully told. She draws you into her story so deeply you can feel the breeze on your face, you can see the small town of Swan River and you follow Jed and Esme's journey with a smile on your face for their snappy back and forth. Jenny also has a way with the steampunk gadgetry that is absolutely brilliant :)
I loved this story and I have to admit -- I'm already counting the days until the sequel.
For a set of romance trading cards for all of the novellas in A Clockwork Christmas, please comment. Today's question is about gadgets. What steampunk accessory MUST you have? (I heard the most amazing idea recently for a steampunk coffee machine that I don't think I could live without)
Blurb for WANTED: ONE SCOUNDREL:
Fresh off the
boat, American inventor Jed Reeve is intrigued by Esme's proposal, but
even more interested in the beauty herself. Amused that she takes him
for a man who lives by his wits, he accepts the job—made easier by the
fact that he already shares her ideals. Soon, he finds himself caught up
in political intrigue, kidnapping and blackmail, and trying to convince
his employer he's more than just a scoundrel...
