Overview

DRIVEN TO WIN.
DRAWN TO LOVE.

 
Fresh from university, Eliza Hardison is determined to crusade for workers’ rights until her cousin Dexter, the Makesmith Baron, prevails on her to represent Hardison House in the American Dominion Sky and Steam Rally.
 
The competition is fierce, but only one opponent really matters to Eliza. Dexter’s protégé, Matthew Pence, was always like a big brother to her. But now she’s grown up, and Matthew has made a break from Hardison House with his own business venture—and made his own entry in the rally.
 
Matthew intends to win while keeping Eliza safe on the perilous route from New York to San Francisco. As the threats escalate through treacherous skies and uncharted American wilds, though, Eliza and Matthew must work together, discovering a bond deeper than either could have imagined…but is winning the rally more important than winning at love?

Publishers Weekly
★ 12/16/2013
Second in Dryden’s alternate history Steam & Seduction series (following Gossamer Wing), this delightful romp sees a mechanically-minded young woman participating in a hazardous cross-country race from New York to San Francisco, where she must team up with a childhood friend if she wants to win—or even survive. Eliza Hardison is determined to win the Sky and Steam Rally, even if it means putting up with Matthew Pence’s well-meaning but aggravating attentions. Frequent threats along the way, including sabotage, booby traps, and sky pirates, distract from their mutual attraction. But once they reach the aerial portion of their journey, they discover the true scope of the forces arrayed against them, and learn why so few travelers ever make it past the Sierra Nevada mountains. Possibly a callback to The Great Race, this romantic adventure shines, thanks to memorable characters, nifty steampunk technology, and undeniable chemistry between the leads. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Sanford J. Greenberger Associates. (Feb.)

Meet the Author

Delphine Dryden tried unsuccessfully to get past being an English major by becoming a lawyer, a special education teacher, and an educational diagnostician. She finally gave up the fight several years ago and began writing full-time. When not writing or doing “mommy stuff,” Delphine reads voraciously and noodles around with web design. She counts herself fortunate to have two absurdly precocious children, and two delightful, if occasionally disobedient, mutts. Delphine and her family are all Texas natives, and reside in unapologetic suburban bliss near Houston.
