The moment I spotted this cover, I was in love. The Steampunk covers the publishers are creating are some of the best and this one is no exception. A new author for me. Kiss of Steel (London Steampunk Series, Book 1) by Bec McMaster will be released on September 4th from Sourcebooks.
Synopsis: Honoria Todd has no choice. Only in the dreaded Whitechapel district can she escape the long reach of the Duke of Vickers. But seeking refuge there will put her straight into the hands of Blade, legendary master of the rookeries. No one would dare cross him, but what price would he demand to keep her safe?
Ever since Vickers infected him with the craving, Blade has been quicker, stronger, almost immortal—and terrified of losing control of the monster within. Honoria could be his perfect revenge against the duke…or the salvation he never dared to dream of.
