The British Empire reigns supreme, and its young Queen Victoria has expanded her realm to St. Francisco, a bustling city of English lords and Chinese ghettos. St. Francisco is a jewel in the Empire’s crown and as deeply embroiled in the conflict between the Arcane and Science as its sister city, London—a very dark and dangerous battle.

Marcus Stenhill, Viscount of Westwood, stumbles upon that darkness when he encounters a pack of young bloods beating a man senseless. Westwood’s duty and honor demand he save the man, but he’s taken aback to discover the man is Robin Harris, a handsome young inventor indirectly responsible for the death of Marcus’s father.

Living in the shadows following a failed coup, Robin devotes his life to easing others’ pain, even though his creations are considered mechanical abominations of magicks and science. Branded a deviant and a murderer, Robin expects the viscount to run as far as he can—and is amazed when Marcus reaches for him instead.

This is a great little novella that mixes magic, science fiction, and history with love and friendship thrown in for good measure. Watching Marcus overcome what happened to his father and others to do the right thing is heartwarming and helps remind the reader that face value and on the surface is not the whole story. Definitely worth reading by the very talented Rhys Ford. Reviewer Note: I have to say that I don't really get the whole terminology of steampunk. I know what it means and I know it is a sub-genre of science fiction but to me science fiction is science fiction, nothing more, nothing less. As a reader, I will be putting this and others labeled steampunk on my science fiction library shelf but as a book blogger I will defer to the whole steampunk terminology labeling. Just wanted to put that out there.

After reading Ford's short story in the Charmed and Dangerous anthology, I decided to try Clockwork Tangerine. While it is only about seventy pages, it was money well-spent. The characters are terrific, and the world-building is amazing. Plus, the romance is sensual and erotic. My only complaint is that a number of scenes which were important to the development of their relationship happened off-screen, and we're summarized in flashbacks. Still, I really hope that Ford returns to this world one day. Highly recommended to fans of Jordan L Hawk, KJ Charles, and Zoe Archer. -- lyradora
