Wanted: One Scoundrel

I've been so lucky to be a part of this fantastic anthology called 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:

All suffragette Esme Smith wants is a man. A scoundrel to be precise. Someone who can be persuaded to represent her political views at men-only clubs. As the daughter of the richest man in Australia, Esme can afford to make it worth the right man's while.

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...
