Catagory: Paranormal Romance, steampunk
Sir Merrick Hadrian hunts monsters, both human and supernatural. A Knight of the Order of the Round Table, his use of magick and the technologies of steam power have made him both respected and feared. But his considerable skills are useless in the face of his greatest challenge, guardianship of five unusual children. At a loss, Merrick enlists the aid of a governess.
Miss Caroline Bristol is reluctant to work for a bachelor but she needs a position, and these former street children touch her heart. While she tends to break any mechanical device she touches, it never occurs to her that she might be something more than human. All she knows is that Merrick is the most dangerously attractive man she’s ever met—and out of reach for a mere governess.
When conspiracy threatens to blur the distinction between humans and monsters, Caroline and Merrick must join forces, and the fate of humanity hinges upon their combined skills of steam and sorcery…

The view of a book addict:
I found this book on another blog and I just knew that I had to read this one. So thanks to Netgalley now I did! I’m a huge steampunk fan so that’s what really attracted me to this book firs. And of course the storyline looked great, I wasn’t disappointed because I loved the book. Set in Victorian London this story really speaks to me.
I loved the main characters and the fact that you got to read the story from both their point of views. The story is both romantic and has a lot of action in it. For me this is the best combination in a book
The verdict of a book addict:
This is a great steampunk novel, with lots of action and romance in it. If you’re into Victorian London, Steampunk and Sorcery this is your book!
