Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen

Here’s the blurb:

Jane Eyre meets Beauty and the Beast. When Lucy Pickett arrives at Blackwell Manor to tend to her ailing cousin, Kate, she finds more than she bargained for. A restless ghost roams the hallways, werewolves have been reported in the area, and vampires lurk across the Scottish border. Lord Miles himself is clearly hiding a secret. He is brash and inhospitable, and does not take kindly to visitors—even one as smart and attractive as Miss Pickett. He is unsettled by the mysterious deaths of his new wife, Clara, and his sister, Marie. Working together, Miles and Lucy attempt to restore peace to Blackwell Manor. But can Lucy solve the mystery of Miles? Can she love the man—beast and all?


Fic Gal reviewed the book and indicated it might appeal to fans of Gail Carriger’s work (The Parasol Protectorate series)
