Overview

A thief with golden eyes. The spy who loves her. A mad scientist who will break hearts to expose her secrets.

Shunned for her odd eyes and an unnerving habit of slipping into shadows, Lady Colleen Stewart refuses to be caged—should she decide to marry, it'll be for love and to a man of her choice. After all, she'd rather be racing over rooftops than waltzing across ballroom floors. So when the only man to ever tempt her heart invites her on a covert mission, she leaps into danger.

Nicholas Torrington, Queen's agent, is running out of time. While work has him chasing his tail, his sister grows increasingly ill, and Colleen, the woman he would make his bride, has acquired another, determined suitor. To coax his favorite thief back into his arms, he'll break every rule and lead her through the underbelly of London on a hunt for a mad scientist and a cure for his sister.

But the discovery of a burned-out laboratory provides more questions than answers, and they find themselves caught in a deadly game where they have become the prey. Surviving the ambitions of their pursuers will bring everything into sharp focus as they risk their very lives.

About the Author

Though USA TODAY bestselling author Anne Renwick holds a Ph.D. in biology and greatly enjoyed tormenting the overburdened undergraduates who were her students, fiction has always been her first love. Today, she writes steampunk romance, placing a new kind of biotech in the hands of mad scientists, proper young ladies and determined villains.

Anne brings an unusual perspective to steampunk. A number of years spent locked inside the bowels of a biological research facility left her permanently altered. In her steampunk world, the Victorian fascination with all things anatomical led to a number of alarming biotechnological advances. Ones that the enemies of Britain would dearly love to possess.

I am fairly new at reading steampunk books and I have loved each and every one of these stories by Anne Renwick. This one has an intelligent and exciting heroine, and of course, a male that matches her intelligence and is not afraid to follow her lead. Anne Renwick knows how to keep the story rolling along and builds a completely believable world. I hate to say this, but I just have to love her bad guys, too. You have to read these books. They really are marvelous.

Fiercely independent heroines who are sassy and unique. Alpha heroes with a strong romantic streak. And villains you just love to hate. All this with the author’s distinctive blend of science and supposition. Into this world walk Colleen and Nick; the lady sneak thief and the Queen’s agent. Both of them are searching for solutions to their problems, little realizing that they might be each other’s best answers. I adore the books in this series. The only thing I don’t like about them is when I reach the end and they’re over. Already I’m craving my next foray into this fascinating steampunk world. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.
