Miranda is duty-bound to journey across the Damned Plains to rescue the Princess of York from ruination. Her selfish cousin doesn’t deserve her help, but the mission offers an opportunity to escape the smothering confines of life as an indentured companion to a spoiled princess.
Danner is a journeyman, a traveler with an extraordinary gift: the ability to withstand the deadly lightning bolts sent by moody gods. Drawn by her lush beauty, he agrees to guide Miranda across the Plains if she’ll let him explore her body each night.
They face danger—blood ravens, cannibals, mechanical spyders—but Danner never anticipated that the bigger risk would be from Miranda and the things she makes him feel. A journeyman’s life doesn’t lend itself to commitment, but if they can rescue the princess and make it out of the Plains without getting zapped or eaten, Danner might have to make an exception for one amazing woman. If she’ll have him.
This was a really interesting book that fused steampunk, erotica, and Norse mythology. Unlike most erotica stories, this had a really great plot to it. The characters are well drawn.
I have not read any of Marie Harte’s other books. I will be going back to check them out though.
Now as I noted above, this is an erotica book. So if you do not like scenes that are sexually explicit, then you should shy away from this book. However, if you like things to get hot and heavy in your reading materials, then this is definitely a winner.
One of my new found loves is all things steampunk. I have only read a handful of steampunk stories and I have loved all of them, including this one.
