A journey of divine love and extraordinary adventure.

Diana Wells has led a charmed life – that is, if you discount her strict governess, who wields a disciplinary paddle expertly. Diana is the beloved ward of Sir Alfred Thorsby, and is destined to marry into Victorian England's aristocracy. But all this is fated to change when she meets the handsome American Naval officer, Captain John Bates. Tantalized by his first kiss, Diana inadvertently sets a sequence of events into motion that will carry her beyond her wildest dreams.

Her adventure begins when she is captured by an Egyptian prince who is intent on making her into his trophy harem slave girl. After her indoctrination into the erotic arts, Diana's beloved John Bates arrives to rescue her. However, this is not the end of her ordeal as a slave girl... it is only the beginning. Secretly following her brother – Herbert – and Captain Bates, Diana makes the mistake of boarding her uncle's Moon Car. Diana's Uncle George is a professor studying the lost Egyptian science of anti-gravity and levitation. He is planning a trip to the moon. Unknown to the others, Diana stows away and inadvertently joins the voyage.

Going up is easy. Getting back down – not so simple.

This romantic science fiction story, set in July, 1840, offers exciting discoveries and an alternate meaning to ancient mythology; including a different outlook on the inspiration behind the famous Venus in the half shell painting.

Slave Girl on the Half Shell This is a very creative and imaginative fast-paced story of divine love set in Victorian England times. Sterling Scott always does a great job of writing about strong, courageous, adventurous heroines, and Diana Wells is no exception. There are several clever references in this book that I thoroughly enjoyed, including classic mythology references for Venus (love) & Mars (war) and an artistic reference to the 1486 Boticelli painting “The Birth of Venus”. Additionally, readers of science fiction & fantasy will enjoy the subtle references to Kilgore Trout and H.G. Wells. Last, but not least - Oh my goodness! - the hot, sexy love scenes were very enjoyable!

This was a wonderfully involved storyline with unexpected twists and turns with Steampunk, Sci-Fi, Paranormal, ménage, female-female sex, lots of well done domestic discipline and hot sex. I loved the mixture of true characters and the author obviously did much research. I enjoyed it immensely.

Rescuing Diana is an entertaining erotic adventure story that blends historical elements with science fiction. Of course the steampunk genre allows for the story to twist history and bend science nearly to their breaking point and the author did a magnificent job of both in this book. Still, the historical references were creative and enjoyable. The aptly named erotic adventure contained a commendable variety of kink as well as a remarkable amount of eroticism and almost continuous use of discipline. However unrealistic, the plot was captivating and the steamy scenes were very descriptive and well done. Fans of the genre will love this book.

YOU ARE THE PEARL IN MY OYSTER SHELL I will say that in the genre of Steampunk, Sterling Scott used his artistic liberties to create a unique and interesting story. It takes the reader on a journey from England to outer space in plans of heading to the moon, being caught in a meteor shower, diverted to Venus and then to Mars before heading back to Earth. What was intended as a short journey extends into many months. The inhabitants of Venus were all female and included lesbian scenes then onto Mars witnessing a ménage à trios between a beta male, his wife, and an Alpha male. One thing seemed to rein true whether on earth or at other planets was the use of domestic discipline. The plot kept me enthralled with so many different elements in this story. One characteristic I always enjoy is when real people and historical facts are incorporated into the story, like Abbas Pasha, Michael Faraday, and Charles Goodyear, to name just a few, along with some mentions of Roman and Greek history.
