This is a surprisingly sweet little accompaniment to Meljean Brook's amazing steam punk series The Iron Seas. Suggest getting the feel for this world by reading The Iron Duke first as it really sets the scene for the characters in this little novella.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much like this novella, I am keeping this review short ‘n sweet.... 11 July 2014

Much like this novella, I am keeping this review short ‘n sweet. If you have read Meljean Brook’s Iron Seas series you will be familiar with Edward Newberry, a secondary, yet important character in The Iron Duke. This novella is set before The Iron Duke and tells the tale of how and why Newberry came to England with his brand new wife.

Like with everything else Meljean Brook has written, I really enjoyed this, Newberry was a great character in The Iron Duke; he is slightly prudish and prone to blushing at the slightest impropriety; basically adorable. In this book Newberry needs to convince the wife that he tricked into a forced marriage, to love him as much as he has fallen for her.

This was sweet novella and can be read as a standalone if you haven’t read the Iron Seas series. It gives us Constable Newberry’s back story and shows that he is not just an intelligent and honest policeman, but an adoring and loving husband as well.

Steampunk romance at its best! This was the first book I've read from this Author and it will not be my last. I'm so glad this book was available on KU. It was too short though. I wanted more! That said the Author did a brilliant job with the story and I felt a connection to all the very well fleshed out characters and world. The world building skills were divine. Thank you Ms. Brook!!!!

I like that the couple in the story are going to be around for more. They were left hanging in the other novel and really deserved to have their story told.
4.0 out of 5 stars Meljean at her best 3 Feb 2014

I loved this story of the stalwart constable and his unwilling bride. He is one of MB's most engaging characters, and this off-shoot of the Iron Duke story is a satisfying romance.

To save his true love, the constable must trick her into accompanying him into his world, and accepting a 'virus' that will make her strong. Trouble is, she's been taught all her life it will turn her into a hapless minion of evil, with no mind of her own.

The conclusion arrives with a startling twist and a heartfelt, sexy satisfaction. Typical Meljean Brook in other words.

It's a short story, but could use just a little more transition from hate him to love him. As always though, this author delivers well written stories.
