    3 overall, but the individual stories definitely varied in quality and substance The Blushing Bounder by Meljean Brook 3.5 4 stars This Iron Seas novella featuring Constable Newberry first name Edward, in case you didn t know and his wife, Temperance, is sweet and adds some background and depth to a strong but silent secondary character found in the first Iron Seas book, The Iron Duke Considering this is the last of the available Iron Seas stories that I had to read, I was excited to see 3 overall, but the individual stories definitely varied in quality and substance The Blushing Bounder by Meljean Brook 3.5 4 stars This Iron Seas novella featuring Constable Newberry first name Edward, in case you didn t know and his wife, Temperance, is sweet and adds some background and depth to a strong but silent secondary character found in the first Iron Seas book, The Iron Duke Considering this is the last of the available Iron Seas stories that I had to read, I was excited to see little glimpses of characters that I had already learned about e.g., Mina in her inspector role, mention of the latest published Archimedes Fox story The story of Newberry and Temperance s romance is itself a sweet story of a married couple who came together over a misunderstanding that, at its heart, was driven unbeknownst to Temperance at the time by Newberry s love for her He is a gentle giant view spoiler indeed, we learn in the story that he s a virgin, too hide spoiler , but he feels strongly for Temperance and will do anything even move her across an ocean and risk her hating him forever to save her from the consumption that is eating away at her health Temperance believed falsely that Newberry was a gold digging manipulator who deliberately compromised her into marriage and handing over her inheritance to him The story does a very good job of showing his completely pure motivations and his steadfast dedication to her Once Temperance understands and accepts his actions as pure and driven by love, the couple and their romance fall neatly into place view spoiler and ends with the consummation FINALLY of their month long marriage hide spoiler Vixen by Jill Myles 2 stars Mehhhhhhh I got a whole lot of meh out of this short erotica piece First off, it features themes I avoid in romance menage and, ultimately, a polyamorous relationship I tried not to let that cloud my judgment as I forged ahead and dove into this story of a reclusive were vixen, Miko, who has, up til this story, been denying her natural were vixen sluttiness for lack of arefined term by remaining a hermit The two heroes show up when Miko s mother sends them as bodyguards to protect Miko from illegal fox hunts that have recently cropped up in the area The plot in this one is paper thin, and it only serves to advance the romance when Miko does TSTL I m putting myself in danger and you can t stop me things I just couldn t relate to Miko, both in her waffling over which hunky guy she wanted and in her TSTL moments, and I didn t feel like we learned anything substantive emotionally about the two guys Also, as a general criticism to the editors, I thought this anthology was marketed in the non erotic mainstream romance genre, so a story with menage and a long term m f m relationship just doesn t fit into expectations It just was a disappointment in the end, but was okay as a vehicle for spicy sexytimes Kitten tiger the Monk by Carolyn Crane 4 stars Verrrrrrrrrrry cool Really liked this story set in the Disillusionists world I was only 10 pages into it, and I had to go online to queue up book 1 of that series on my library requests This is a second chance romance story that features an anti heroine by the name of Sophia, who regrets the path that life and her ability to erase replace memories have taken her I didn t think I d like her, and I actually didn t for a large part of the story What she did to Robert when they were teenagers in love was heartbreaking Just the reminiscing that Robert does about their love and their falling out made me want to smack her in the face with a two by four The story and strong world building yield a setting that is an industrial alternate universe, giving me a feeling of gritty urban life and a sense of general dystopia We learn secrets on both sides that really help for each of them to trust and understand each other better The thorough backgrounds and intricate setting definitely left me with the impression that a LOT of thought went into this short piece and the world as a whole It s got a dark and rather depressing overall vibe, but I really enjoyed this one and, despite my usual aversion to urban fantasy, will definitely check out the series

    The Blushing Bounder by Meljean BrooksThis story was adorable I m not sure I will ever be a steampunk fan all the way, but this was incredibly imaginative, fun to read and with a sweet, sweet romance I would not have called it particularly Wild or Steamy, actually, but I enjoyed it so much that it really didn t matter I definitely want to readromances by her, if only I can get over my aversion to the creepier aspects of steampunk.Vixen by Jill MylesThis was the one story of the group th The Blushing Bounder by Meljean BrooksThis story was adorable I m not sure I will ever be a steampunk fan all the way, but this was incredibly imaginative, fun to read and with a sweet, sweet romance I would not have called it particularly Wild or Steamy, actually, but I enjoyed it so much that it really didn t matter I definitely want to readromances by her, if only I can get over my aversion to the creepier aspects of steampunk.Vixen by Jill MylesThis was the one story of the group that I felt lived up to the title in that it was both wild and steamy I had some problems with the heroine in that her characterization felt uneven deep in some aspects and too shallow in others and also that I didn t like her much The plot also faced some problems, most because of the heroine s actions The hero s were perfect to the point of 2 dimensionality view spoiler The heros come to protect the heroine who is extremely snippy toward them She repeatedly endangers herself, just for fun and whims Meanwhile they clean up around the house and make her food She felt immature and they felt like the kind of laid back dudes who get along with everyone but don t stick around for long hide spoiler I couldn t buy in to the romance, and the sex was hot, but not hot enough to make up for that.Kitten tiger the Monk by Carolyn CraneThis story alone blew me away The heroine didn t start off as particularly likable, but she was interesting, and the writing was good By the end I was sold on her as a flawed but ultimately good individual, with a true hope for redemption with the hero I love the depth of emotion she was able to swing through in such a short time period Not only that, but there was a certain intelligence to it to the hero, the heroine and the complexity of the story, that all managed to intertwine The word that comes to mind when I think back on this story is well crafted I am definitely planning on readingby her

Newberry and his wife, Temperance, are bounders , people whose ancestors fled England when the Horde first attacked, and now that the threat are over, are returning to England In this universe, while the New World still follows the social s of what we would call the Regency era ie a woman s reputation is everything, and any kind of contact between the sexes is frowned upon without a proper chaperone , but England is muchrelaxed and practical about such matters.Temperance was a governess in Manhattan City, and formed a very sweet and very chaste friendship with Constable Newberry, whose blushes never failed to charm her However, she fell very ill with consumption and made the decision to invest the small inheritance she d gained from her grandfather into a quiet hospice setting at a sanatorium As she was about to leave, she realized Edward had come to say goodbye to her, only, Edward had different ideas He kissed her, of all things, which immediately set into motion a hasty marriage and banishment to the awful and filthy city of London.Temperance might have been able to forgive him, had he merely been overcome by passion, but when she asked him shortly following his marriage if he had planned all of this their marriage, his receiving her inheritance, and their move to London he confirmed that it had indeed been his plan.Now dying and miserable, Temperance despises her new husband though she can t help but to notice the nice fit of his trousers or the way his broad shoulders fill a doorway every now and again , and she merely wants to find some quiet enjoyment before she dies.Things are never as simple as that, however, because Temperance witnesses a murder in the alley below her bedroom window, and worse, the murderer got a good look at her as well.Willing to do absolutely anything to protect the woman he adores, Edward puts both his life, and his heart, on the line.Overall, I of course loved it In fact, the entire reason that I bought this anthology was I read the EXCERPT ON MELJEAN BROOK S WEBSITE and got sucked right back into the world of The Iron Seas While I think that new readers might be fairly lost, any fan of the series will definitely appreciate the cameos and references to other characters, as well as the insights as to the lives and attitudes of bounders.That said, however, this story could also serve as an admirable intro into the world of The Iron Seas for readers who haven t had the opportunity to read earlier works Of course, I personally think new readers should immediately go out and read both Here There Be Monsters and The Iron Duke instead, but I m a bit biased on that front because I enjoyed both of those stories so much.Recommended for fans of steampunk done the right way, of being forced into a marriage of convenience, and of allowing yourself to finally embrace the love that s been waiting for you all along.Keywords Meljean Brook, Steampunk, Steam Level Steamy Forced Marriage, Marriage to

to do is to avoid men altogether.However, when a local and illegal fox hunting group forms, her mother sends along two very sexy cat shifters to protect her until the hunters can be stopped Now, forced to live in close quarters with not one but two extremely desirable men, Miko knows that she can t choose between the delectable Sam and Jeremiah, and luckily for her, she might not have

polyamorous relationship made things muchbelievable to me Add to that the danger of the fox hunters, and the delicious sexual tension throughout, and this one gets a solid 4 5 from me.Keywords Jill

    The Blushing Bounder by Meljean Brook Iron Seas 0.5 novella I haven t read Meljean Brook s steampunk series yet so I had no previous notion of the Iron Seas world or characters First I was amazed by the similar yet so different world Meljean Brook has created where London is the liberal city compared to theconservative America, where people have machines transplanted into their bodies to be faster, better This novella packed so many novelties I kept marveling at all the tiny details The Blushing Bounder by Meljean Brook Iron Seas 0.5 novella I haven t read Meljean Brook s steampunk series yet so I had no previous notion of the Iron Seas world or characters First I was amazed by the similar yet so different world Meljean Brook has created where London is the liberal city compared to theconservative America, where people have machines transplanted into their bodies to be faster, better This novella packed so many novelties I kept marveling at all the tiny details which made this alternate universe so different.The hero of this novella is Constable Newberry, a big yet gentle and soft hearted man whose marriage to his wife is icy to say the least The couple had to marry because of a stolen kiss and Temperance the wife is convinced that her husband married her only for her dowry, not a good start especially since she had tender feelings for him.Let me just tell you that Meljean Brook makes the most of the length restrictions of this novella and presents the reader with a story able to stand on its own The Blushing Bounder was a very interesting and sweet steampunk novella set in an astonishing and very rich world In my opinion if one has already read The Iron Duke and knows some of the mentioned characters of this novella it can be enjoyed even , so I ll be sure to return and re read it after I become acquainted with The Iron Duke.Plot 7 10Characters 8 10Ending 9 10Writing 9 10Vixen by Jill Myles A shifter novella Jill Myles is another new to me author so I had no idea as to what to expect, and maybe that is one of the reasons why Vixen blew me away It was fantastic and hot, and definitely lived up to title of the anthology as it most certainly was wild and steamy I never read about fox shifters so I was a completely blank canvas for Jill Myles to tell me about their characteristics and what makes them so different and unique.The heroine of this novella is Miko, a werefox who wanting to renounce her quite wild fox side lives in the middle of nowhere so as to avoid temptation But she can t avoid it when temptation comes ringing her doorbell Fox hunts are being organized in her neighbourhood and two sexy and drool worthy cat shifters were sent as bodyguards to protect her from any harm.The two heroes were dreamy one blond the other dark, one teasing and cocky the other quiet and intense, they were black and white opposites of each other but both were charismatic and trustworthy For me one of the highlights of this novella was the threefold banter between the characters which worked as perfect verbal foreplay Besides the steamy teasing the playfulness of the characters made this novella fresh and enchanting.I had a wonderful time with Jill Myles characters, my only complaint is that I would have loved to stay longer pPlot 7 10Characters 9 10Ending 8 10Writing 8 10Kitten tiger the Monk by Carolyn Crane Disillusionists 2.5 novellaTo be honest this novella is the reason why I became interested in this anthology I loved Mind Games, the first book in Carolyn Crane s Disillusionists trilogy and couldn t wait to revisit the beloved characters and the original world of Midcity again And Carolyn Crane does not disappoint Even though the old characters don t make an appearance in this story, Carolyn Crane introduces new ones who are just as complex and fascinating.I was once again amazed at the incredibly original powers Carolyn Crane has created in this novella The heroine of Kitten tiger the Monk is Sophia, whose special power is revising memories , i.e she can enter anyone s mind and erase or supplant memories at will An incredibly powerful and dangerous talent, and one which weighs heavily on Sophia s conscience That is why she is searching for the Monk, one of the most feared disillusionist, so he can reprogram her.Sophia and the hero of the novella, Robert go way back they grew up together and were each other s first love I enjoyed how their whole history unfolded bit by bit through flashbacks and memories and we finally learned what happened exactly between these two to make their once sweet and close relationship so hostile and cold.I forgot why exactly I was fanaticly enthusiastic about Mind Games, but this novella was enough to remind me why Carolyn Crane s lyrical writing simply enchants the reader with its metaphorical pictures and emotional intensity Staring into her eyes had once been a compulsion, like staring into something vast the Grand Canyon, or a star glutted sky and the harder you looked, the vaster andimpossibly glorious it seemed, and you had to keep looking, to somehow find a way to take it all in Not only was the resolution of the novella satisfactory but I enjoyed the journey leading there just as much Both Sophia and Robert are interesting characters and my heart went out to both of them for suffering so much and all alone.Kitten tiger the Monk was a fantastic novella which I enjoyed immensely It made me want to return to the Disillusionist universe and re read Carolyn Crane s novels And I think that s exactly what I ll do since I have to pass the time somehow while I m waiting for the release of Book 3.Plot 8 10Characters 9 10Ending 9 10Writing 10 10Verdict Based on the title and the sexy cover I was expecting this anthology to bewild and steamy on the sexual side, but it was only Jill Myles novella which can be called erotic of the three Nonetheless, all three stories are well written and entertaining, the first and last introducing the reader to unique and fascinating alternate universes that will leave you blinking The Blushing Bounder is innocently sweet and heartwarming, Vixen is the hottest and most sensual, and then there is Kitten tiger the Monk which has the most beautifully written heartache and emotional depth.Wild Steamy is a great anthology on its own, but if you discovered any of the authors thanks to it, make sure to check out their full length novels, I know that s what I ll be doing
