Steampunk Romance Roundup

This month, I’m presenting you with a light roundup of steampunk romance titles! But first, here’s a link for all of you authors out there: Writing a Truly Dastardly Villain by Cindy Spencer Pape.

Short on time and cash? Enjoy “The Kissing Machine” by Danielle Davis, a free steampunk romance short via Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly #2.

If you like interactive stories and automaton heroines, try A Heart For Copper by Sharon Lynn Fisher. It’s a “Pick Your Path to Romance” steampunk romance from SilkWords.

Need an erotic steampunk romance quickie? Then “Iron Hard” by Sylvia Day might just be up your alley!
