    A Resplendent, Exquisite Collection of Intrigue, Inventiveness, and Heat

    Simply put, Steamlust is one of the most gorgeous anthologies I've encountered. From the first page, I was dazzled, mesmerized, and relegated to a state of breathless arousal by story after story in this extraordinary, exquisite collection. Since I'm not very familiar with steampunk, I'm not sure what expectations I had of this anthology, but any notion of them seemed exceeded such as to render them obsolete by the end of the first story--a story, incidentally, that was one of my very favorites and which set the bar for the remainder of the collection exceptionally high. Astonishingly--and delightfully--it met it. Each story greeted me with evocative and brilliantly clever renderings of inventive ideas and mechanisms, solidly imbued with the spirit and imagination around which I have the impression steampunk is centered. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the additions of the steampunk elements of time, inventiveness, machinery, etc., amidst the blazing hot and beautifully rendered romantic encounters this book offers. It's made me think that perhaps this is a genre of which I should seek out more, and I offer sincere thanks to the editor and authors for providing such a luscious, scorching, spellbinding introduction to it. For anyone with any appreciation for erotic romance and/or any inkling of interest in or curiosity about steampunk, mechanical engineering, fantasy, or even historical settings, I recommend this collection without reservation and with utmost enthusiasm--and I hope with all sincerity that every reader enjoys it as much as I did.

    I am sometimes leery when it comes to Anthology because I at times feel like I am missing something from the story or it doesn’t end well. This was so not the case with this anthology, there are some stories that I am hoping some of the authors will expand like Iron Hard from Sylvia Day (which by the way I did speak to her at the RAW convention and she did confirm with me she is extending this story YAY) and Green Cheese by Lisabet Sarai (I emailed her and asked and she said she might extend, so another YAY).

    All these stories were filled with wonder and excellent imagines with robot companions and different body parts that were mechanical and at times vibrated. I loved how all the ladies were very strong willed but then again did not mind being swept off their feet.

    I really enjoyed Anya Richards story Rescue My Heart, filled with so much emotion and love and intrigue. This story was beautifully done as she introduced the same sex relationship as well as the trio they truly are.

    I was pleasantly surprised I enjoyed each and everyone of these stories because as some of you may know some anthologies don’t have the best stories. I highly recommend this book, I think Kristina Wright picked a wonderful cast of authors to fill these pages.

    Each story is unique, filled with wonder, imagination and love. Reviewed by Ive. Book was Provided by Publisher. Review Originally Posted @ Romancing the Book.

    I like my steampunk sexy!

    Gears and clocks and lots of steam- that is what this book has in spades. The stories are SO smart. I was riveted and you will be, too. If you like your steampunk with a side of sexy, you will love this book. I know I did!
