Three New M/M Steampunk Romances
During a recent online book hunt, three m/m steampunk romances caught my eye, so I gathered up the blurbs and covers to share with you. Any kind of mention of automatons and inventions is just about guaranteed to pique my interest, which is why these titles stood out! I also found a little something extra provided by each author to help you further explore their work. Happy reading!
For All the Gold in the Vault – Jasmine Gower
Arturo is on the run for murder, and trying to survive in the wild west. He was creeping by undetected until he was snagged by Ezekiel Estridge, a sinister man who has need of Arturo’s talents as a thief to steal back a collection of inventions created by his father and stolen by a traitorous friend. But Arturo isn’t the hardened criminal his wanted posters claim, making him less than ideal for the job. For one, he’s not actually a cold-blooded killer, and refuses to become one for Ezekiel. The payment, however, is enough gold to pay off the price on his own head, so he agrees to the job. But theft and avoiding murder are easier said than done, and the growing attraction between him and his strange employer doesn’t help matters.
In addition to books, the author features informative writing articles on her web site!
Project Ordell – Susanna Hays
Ordell Rutledge lives in the small town of Blackwick where he helps in his father’s modest automaton shop. While he enjoys interacting with the few people who grace his father’s business, he feels isolated because he can’t relate to them. For ten years, life’s been quaint and peaceful, but Ordell has a secret: he is an automaton, sentient enough to pass as human.
Ordell’s life is upended when the person he trusts most betrays him. Heartbroken, he sets off for Linnesse, a city that accepts automatons as people and is booming with the latest technology. With another sentient automaton, Elias Griffith, at his side, they overcome obstacles and uncover the strange truth behind Ordell’s past. But sometimes the past is best left in the dark.
For the Love of a Steampunk Heart (Firebend Chronicles 1.0) – Leah Ross
Sixty-four years ago, the Blast changed everything. The modern, interconnected world died and two disparate societies took its place. The pioneers founded their own world in the frontier of the Fringe. The rest crowded themselves into dome cities and cut themselves off from the world. Fringer or Domer. One or the other. Never both. Until now. Nick Massey is an inventor and mechanic, a Domer struggling to break out of his poverty-stricken existence and escape his tragic past. He’s brilliant. He’s talented. He just lost his job. With nothing keeping him in the city, he leaves his meager life behind and strikes out for the wild unknowns of the Fringe. He’s hoping to find happiness and purpose. Instead, he finds Zander. Zander Pennington is a Fringer, born and bred, a lifelong resident of the town of Firebend. He’s tough and resourceful and absolutely intolerant of unknowns. As a partner in the region’s most lucrative mineral mining operation, he doesn’t have time to deal with anything but business. Business is what he knows. Business is his comfort zone. Nick is not business. Despite their inherent differences, Nick and Zander must learn to trust each other and work as a team to thwart the danger that threatens them and all of Firebend. It’s the danger they can’t fight, though, that could break both of their hearts and destroy their lives.
