New at Heather Massey’s Steampunk Cafe: Caitlin Like’s MAIDEN OF THE MACHINE

Do you enjoy webcomics? Spunky heroines? Airships? Lady pirates? Dapper gents and mystery galore? Then look no further: at Coffee Time Romance’s Steampunk site, I’m blogging about artist Caitlin Like’s MAIDEN OF THE MACHINE.

I read all of what’s available so far of this gothic adventure and while I can’t speak to an HEA, it has strong appeal for sci-fi romance and steampunk/steampunk romance readers. Head on over to to my post to discover if MAIDEN OF THE MACHINE is an airship you want to fly on!

Coming soon from Red Sage Publishing: THE INVENTOR’S WIFE, the third installment in my Clockpunk Trilogy! Here’s the blurb for this erotic sci-fi romance:

Elena Harrington’s widowed father rules her life with an iron fist. Even worse, he intends to force her into a loveless marriage in order to expand his business empire. An innocent bird trapped in a gilded cage, she can do naught but daydream about an adventurous life forever out of reach.

Elena resigns herself to a doomed existence until the day she meets her father’s dashing new employee. Daniel Miller is a brilliant inventor who crafts extraordinary devices. His astonishing machines fill her with delight. What else might this mysterious inventor have in store?

Determined to find out, Elena begins visiting Daniel’s workshop in secret. One hot, sultry night, he awakens her passion with all manner of sensual clockwork devices. Elena is certain she’s discovered her soul mate. Then an unexpected danger threatens to derail not only their burgeoning romance, but also their very lives.

THE INVENTOR’S WIFE can stand alone, but if you’d like to start from the beginning, the trilogy begins with The Watchmaker’s Lady and continues in The Blacksmith’s Lover.
