It doesn't get anymore steampunk than this.
Lila Shaw gives her readers a short fun read, filled with steam, one drop dead gorgeous man, an automaton and a woman who's a nerd.
Do I have your attention?
Violet inherits her great uncle's laboratory, which to her is the same as if she would've inherited millions. Yes, she's that kind of a nerd. She has a thing for gorgeous as sin Lyle, but being isn't an option. Once was enough, and no matter how much she wishes to be with him, just knowing what will happen to her leaves her no choice than to create the next best thing. That's where Adam comes into play.
She creates her dream man. She gives it the voice she likes, then trains him to say the right things, to do what she enjoys without question, pleasuring her in bed.
Violet is having a great time until Lyle discover her wicked invention. Then, he wants in. It just so happens he's never been able to forget about Violet and is well aware of the reasons she isn't with him. Adam, her invention, might just be the fix they both need so they are never apart again.
Oh my!Be ware...this is an M/F/M story. It's a pretty short enjoyable read. Blurb:
From Evernight's Romance on the Go line:
A succubus half-breed, such as Violet, who hobnobs with the highest echelons of Victorian London society, is a bride in a difficult marriage of extremes. Any act that wants of propriety, and she would find herself banished to the wilds of Cornwall where her full-blooded succubus sisters live and thrive. Yet she prefers the company of mortals, even if she must occasionally risk her reputation by engaging in discreet sexual liaisons.
When Violet’s great uncle dies and bequeaths her his laboratory and home, she crafts an artificially intelligent automaton named Adam to sate her carnal needs. Her plan is coming along nicely until an incubus from her past, and the unwitting model for her invention, discovers her secret. Violet has good reason to be wary of losing her heart to Lyle, but perhaps Adam is the key to fulfilling all of her desires.
