WHERE FEAR ENDS, LOVE BEGINS
Nicola Tesla has never needed a man to complete her life. A gifted engineer, she has always had her experiments to keep her company-or she did, before her vile boss stole them. Now she's working at the Archives in New London, where the memories of the dead are stored. But it isn't long before Nicola discovers she's being watched . . . by a most intriguing, sinfully sexy man.
Archivist Emmet Dennison should be busy extracting memories from the dead. Instead he's been asked to keep an eye on the brazen, strikingly beautiful Nicola Tesla. Soon Emmet and Nicola are shaken by an attraction neither of them wants. Yet when a nefarious man takes them hostage, Nicola and Emmet will need to rely on their attraction, and the growing bond between them, to stop a madman hellbent on destroying New London forever.

This is the second book I read by Christine D’Abo and I like her writing and storytelling more and more. In her first book in this series, Gilded Hearts (The Shadow Guild, #1) D’Abo had Jack the Ripper as the villain. Emmet Dennilson was part of the archivist who was not successful in catching The Ripper. Although, I enjoyed the first book in this series I really enjoyed this one as well. I’m not a fan of the Steampunk genre but I really enjoy D’Abo’s storytelling. I find her writing to be fun and engaging. I love that in the mist of machines and superpowers she makes her characters come alive and they are very relatable. I also love that her hero and heroine have great chemistry. Emmet Dennison and Nicola Tesla were so much fun! Nicola is from Canada and sent to work with the Archivist. She is a genius and knows everything about machines. She is full of energy and extremely focused on her projects. Emmet is given the duty to “guide” her while she is in New London. He sees this as a demotion because he failed in catching “the ripper”. Emmet and Nicola are very attracted to each other but they are both very focused and devoted to their work. Although Emmet and Nicola are a big part of the story, they are not the only storyline. Enter Thomas Edison! I thought it was so brilliant the way D’Abo included him! Edison is a villain. He is sinister and driven. Nicola use to work for him before but because she discovered he stole all her ideas she left and took all her projects with her. Edison however is not dissuaded. He wants to be famous and powerful and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. I was so captivated by this story that 400 pages flew by. I loved this plot, the characters, the adventure and the suspense. I really enjoyed this story and will be reading the next book in the The Shadow Guild series. Great story! Does Edison win or do Emmet and Nicola? Read it to find out!

Sure eneough, Raras standing there, smiling. "Hello, Spikey-Wikey!" She chirped, and trotted inside. Little did Spike know that she new what was going on.

Spike's di<_>ck rapidly grew, growing long and hard. •••••••• meanwhile, Twilight and Fluttershy were enjoying being le<_>sbi<_>an. Twilight made her horn viberate and throb, then slowly slid it into Fluttershy's sl<_>it. Fluttershy sat blissfuly, then returned the favor and massaged Twilight's leaking pu<_>ssy. When Fluttershy cu<_>mmed all over her horn, twilight sighed and got up. "I gotta go! Molestia wants me for something!" And trotted out the door.••••••••••• Back with Spike and Rarity, they were just getting started. Spike nudged his load at Rarity's sl<_>it as she grunted impateintly. "Get on with it, Spike!!"

Soon he shoved it all in and began to hu<_>mp her furiously, growling.••••••••••• Meanwhile at AJ's farm, they too were enjoying themselves. Rainbow Dash had a viberator, and was shoving it inside AJ's as<_>s, watching it bounce. AJ was ontop of Rainbow Dash, forcing her to lick her pu<_>ssy. "Faster, ya little sl<_>ut!" AJ groaned, and nibbled Rainbow's wings.••••••••••• Celestia just wanted se<_>x too. It turned out she was a shemale, and oddly had a di<_>ck. She mo<_>unted Twilight, smiling.
