    BEWARE!

    I love steampunk and erotic steampunk. This has very little story, but some fine period erotica. I will probably read more, but those who prefer less raunchy, BEWARE.

    Why, i enjoyed that greatly. The dialogue took a bit of getting used to, but, i think thats just the charm of it. I think too, though, i found one or two small grammatic errors. But nothing worth worrying about. I must say though, im painfully jealous of her....and i wish it was longer....

    I am a fan!

    Steamy and naughty with a historical back drop. Short and to the point (57 pgs.) This story flows so well I kept looking down to see what page I was on with dismay because I was that much closer to the end! Very well written. The only reason I didn't give this five stars was because I felt with an extra 20 or 25 pgs it could have been not only enjoyable, but touching.

    Quick Read

    It was a quick read set in an 1800s European steam punk. It got to the point and gets your heart pumping, good read to waste about 5-10 minutes.

    Interesting book

    A steampunk romance with an erotic twist. It was like nothing I read before but I liked it.

    Enjoy!

    I loved this book. It has a great story line and I quickly fell in love with the characters.
    My only qualm was the development of Akira accepting the job without knowing much about it. With her scientific background, it didn't fit her character to make such a sporadic decision.
    Despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed Akira's story and felt the plot was unique and the characters were "full of life". I couldn't put it down and was a bit disappointed when I finished.

    Oh yes, I recommend this book

    Short and sweet only 57 pages. It has an adorably quirky and strong story line, substance and fleshed out characters. A well written story of science and romantic attraction leading to hot passionate sex with a very creative twist based on real-life historical inventions. Read it. You will find it historically amusing.
    Read if you enjoy erotic novels that include detailed descriptions of heterosexual sex.
    I would have given it 5 stars if it had been a longer story. Sorry but I don't feel a well written 57 pages story holds the same value as a 400 page well written story.

    I'm glad I listened to a couple of the reviews, I really enjoyed this story. I also wish it was a tad longer but not
    because the story between them wasn't great but I just wanted more, hmm, anticpiation and interaction.
     Highly recommend this book and author.
