    Steampunk Romance Gone Magic

    Let me first state - in fairness, I did not ready the synopsis carefully and I did not recognize it as a set of romance novels. That being said in front - here is what I liked. The women are strong character - no wilting flowers in this bunch. They are smart and resourceful. The dialog is will written and feels very authentic to 19th century. The author has done some research to make sure things are on the up and up as far as history goes. The action is well written and gets tense at the end of each book drawing one to the close with a satisfying end. Here is what I found challenging. I like science fiction. I like fantasy and magic. I find it challenging when they are in the same story. There are rules that are revealed as the stories come through but when and how much can be invoked seems a bit haphazard. Second, for women who are so strong and capable, they certainly seem easily swayed by a good looking new age sensitive guy. This is where I may not have been prepared for the genre. Ms. Pape may well be playing in the norms of Romance literature and I simply was taken by surprise. I suppose if one has to finish the story arc and complete the romance all in about 70,000 words, one needs to take some short cuts and count on "animal chemistry" to drive attraction. For those who enjoy romance novels, this is a good read with strong women and fun plots.

    steamy steam punk

    The highly resourceful young protagonists would make great role models for young readers but the explicit sex scenes probably render these stories x rated.
