Events which puts the emotionally unavailable Byrnes and the passionate but haunted Ingrid in pretty dire situations Yes it s fair to say the streets of London are far from safeThere is a lot happening here with very nasty bad guys in play The descriptions and words used ust pulled me in In fact about half way through the this story the author touched on a subject that s hard for me to read and her prose was spot on and for me very poignant Then the story continues at breakneck speed so no time to wallow ust feel There are some answers given here but the mystery will continue which means books yippee Plus remember those supporting characters Well I m champing at the bit to find out what they all get up to nextI was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest reviewFour and a half from me I want to know what it feels like to explore that that spark between us I want to exorcise you from my mind from my thoughts That s all I want to burn like the supernova that flames through my veins when you re nearby and drown myself in these feelings until it s done Until you re extinguished from my soul It s been three years since the prince consort was overthrown by the ueen and London society changed completely Humans mechs and verwulfen aren t seen as less any their rights restored and Echelon society are no longer the top class But not everyone is satisfied with these changes and a dangerous evil is stalking the streets Families has gone missing people has been murdered and invites has been sent to certain people in hope of forming a group of elite agents to protect the people the ueen and put a stop to whatever evil plot has been put in motion Caleb Byrnes is a blue blood an agent of the crown and hunting criminals is what he does best He prefers to work alone but when he receives his invitation to oin the Company of Rogues and investigate the mysterious disappearances he can t refuse Even if accepting means partnering with the very woman who drove him crazy a year ago and who left him tied to a bed Ingrid Miller gets under his skin like no other person ever has makes him lose his iron control and Caleb has a score to settle with her and hopefully he ll finally be able to get her out of his system and move on Ingrid is a verwulfen fiery and passionate and she loves challenging Caleb She knows that keeping her distance from him is the only way to protect herself but being partnered with him again is proving distance impossible Soon they are discovering an evil conspiracy monsters that they thought couldn t exist and they ll have to put their trust in each other if they want to survive Perhaps it was that fact that made him so irresistible to her she wanted to ruffle him wanted to see him undone that facade washed away and replaced by the beating heart within him I loved Ingrid how feisty and sassy she was but also how vulnerable she was because of her past and the way verwulfens were treated before I loved the sparring between her and Caleb and how she kept him on this toes and made him lose that control he kept so well around others He was going to throttle her Slowly Or maybe kiss her He hadn t uite decided Byrnes was great so cool calm and a bit of a loner and so different around Ingrid I loved how he teased her how he pursued her trying to get her into bed hoping it would rid him of his need for her I love you Ingrid They re the only words that I know and they re not empty Pressing her hand to his chest he gave a faint smile They fill me up in here I never knew there was so much emptiness inside until I met you but you fill me up You make every day a revelation The romance was great filled with lots of sexual tension and playful banter I did feel like in the beginning Ingrid s feelings for Byrnes were a lot deeper than his for her especially after what happened between them a year ago and I didn t like that but as the story progressed and Byrnes got protective of Ingrid realising that what he felt for her wasn t something that was every going to go away and finally pursuing her with the intent to win her forever and I really started loving their romance I love this world Bec McMaster created with its steampunk elements set in a historical setting and I m so glad that the London Steampunk plot continues with this series We got to meet an entire new crew of members but also old characters from the previous series which I was very happy about I m especially intrigued by Gemma Townsend and the mysterious Obsidian And of course blue blood Ava with her mechanical heart and sexy mech Kincaid who seems to carry much hatred for blue bloods The plot was captivating and action packed with the Company of Rogues trying to find out why and how people are going missing and who is behind it I loved the London Steampunk series and I m very glad to see it continue its arc with this new series Highly recommended to all romance fans who loves steampunk and paranormal elements in a historical setting for their romances I m thilled

Read & download ä PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free à Bec McMasterThe only disappointing thing about this book is the sex scene I wanted also the ending left me wanting some answers and I better get them 25 starsHmpf I m wondering why I keep reading Bec McMaster s books and end up not really liking them or rather liking them and not liking them Does that even make senseWell her writing is compelling and she can build up a good mystery and pursue it throughout the seri I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review Revenge is going to be very sweet Byrnes whispered in her ear as he brushed pastShe followed him feeling that little thrill tingling through her blood unable to stop herself from whispering Just remember two can play at that game Rating 4When I was reading this book and realized that this story was about a newly assembled team of detectivesspies Especially since one of the team members is the sweet charismatic Charlie from the previous booksThere are six of them we have our aloof investigator hot blooded verwulfen sweet inventor charming thief grumpy mech and playful spy If you have read the London Steampunk series which hopefully you havewill because the plot character history and terms would be lost on you you would recognize some of them with Byrnes Ingrid Ava and Charlie being in that bunch For the most part Byrnes and Ingrid the main characters do most of the work in trying to solve the mystery of a mass disappearance but it has been a delight seeing this group that seemingly has little in common with each other get to know one another and actually start acting liking a team The plot romance and characters have all been enjoyable to read The plot is a whole lot of fun and I believe it is a fitting addition to the London Steampunk series There are spyingespionage a masuerade ball detective work psycho vampires a rescue mission etc Besides the fun parts I also really appreciate that Bec McMaster has shown us the aftermath of the rebellion that took place in the last book It would have been easy and unfortunate for her to ust end her series there when peace is supposedly restored and humans blue bloods mechs and verwulfen all have eual rights now However McMaster has realistically shown us that after the revolution everything is not simply fixed after years of prejudice oppression and animosity This is set three years after the rebellion as tension rises againWhen I first heard about the couple for this book I was honestly feeling skeptical I thought Ingrid already had something with Jack from Rosa and Lynch s story in the 3rd book and Byrnes had something with Ava from Perry and Garrett in the 4th book So when I heard that Ingrid and Byrnes were going to be together I was like Uhh What Fortunately this is not an actual love trianglesuare As I saw Ingrid and Byrnes get together it honestly felt right this is not a spoiler because all London Steampunk books are happily ever after guaranteed for whomever the book is centered on They are literally opposites with Ingrid being hot blooded and expressive and Byrnes being cool and collected There are a lot of teasing and sexual tension between them as they play their cat and mouse games While it is cute and funny to see them play their games to seduce one another I love the moment when they finally choose to put away their pride and fear to give in for an actual relationship and life together I also really adore that even though Byrnes prefers to never let Ingrid in any danger during their missions she stands her grounds and he learns to trust and respect her strength and abilities By the time I reach the epilogue my heart is literally melting from the bond they have formedNOTE There is sexual content in this book Ingrid Miller Byrnes s voice was soft as honey his arms like steel Are you going to tell me that you don t hesitate to launch yourself at a vampire and yet a tiny insignificant rat sets you uaking Shut up Further I find Ingrid as an individual character rather likable I mean she could get irritating at times when she is too hot blooded but then again that is somewhat part of her nature When she sees a wrong
Is Being Done Her First Instinct Isbeing done her first instinct is act which could potentially lead her into trouble so I cannot entirely fault her because she is a compassionate person I also love those moments when she tries to one up Byrnes and tries to make him suirm She talks back to him and it s awesome She pretty much kicks ass and I love that she is not afraid to stand up for herself and her kind She is so wonderfully bold and YESSS to a heroine actually literally kicking ass with her physical strength and using her own brain On the other hand Byrnes is great too He can be frustrating at times especially when he tries to deny his feelings for Ingrid but he is still a good guy I love seeing him trying to solve the mystery He is a lone wolf but through this mission he learns that working with a team is not so bad afterall He is overall honest and fair even though he can act distant at times I love how well he ends up treating Ingrid As for the side characters I love them The group is particularly hilarious when they banter There are skepticism and distrust among them in the beginning but they learn to make this work and they have a lot of humorous love hate moments particularly with Kincaid the grumpy mech I looooooove seeing Charlie again being as confident and mischievous as ever I am definitely excited for his story the most because after the 5th book I cannot stand to NOT know what s going to happen with him and Lark He is grown up here I mean it has been 3 years and so I am looking forward to see him grow up a bit and finally get his own book For those who are waiting as desperately as I am for his book there is a small scene where he talks about Lark for a bit I love seeing him here a bit mature but still so amusingly charming and funny I think he s actually starting to come round he Charlie Making India Work joked uietly Even wished us luck Really Garrett arched a brow Well it was like Go kill them bloodsuckers and don t get bit cause I aint comin in after you Ingrid had to grudgingly admit that Charlie gave an impressive impression of Kincaid I am also always SUPER ecstatic to see returning characterscouples such as RosaLynch PerryGarrett and LeoMina It has been 3 years so it is good to see everyone again happily married and with babies My fangirl heartumped out of my chest when I read their scenes I especially like seeing Rosa interacting with Ingrid again as friendsnon blood related family and Lynch giving mentor like advice to Byrnes I ust

Ry future London Steampunk series book because I am already entirely invested in this world and these characters The next book comes out in 2017 We see the beginning work in this book for the couple for the next book which I already ship because their scene together is simultaneously funny and cute The next book couple is view spoilerAva the sweet inventor and Kincaid the grumpy mech hide spoiler 5 steamy stars I don t think I could ever forget you You re one hell of a woman And I don t know where this road will take us or whether I can be what you want but I do know that I want to explore that option I have no words This world that Bec McMaster created is simply marvelous I loved the original series I adored it hell I wanted to live in it And after reading this book I can say that the spin off is on a good way to be eually amazingThe spin off takes place three years after the original series The ueen now rules with the help of The Council of only the most trusted of her advisers and everything seems to be going alright But there are still many who don t like the changes she was responsible for and who want to end her reign New enemies call for new allies Some of them we already met and there are also uite a few new facesFirst I need to mention the Duke of Malloryn I was very intrigued by his mysterious character the second when he appeared in Kiss of Steel He is so much than meets the eye I can t say how badly I want to get to his book Then there are also Charlie Ava Kincaid Jack and the stars of this book are Ingrid and Byrnes It totally took me by surprise when I learned they will be together because I was sure there is something between her and Jack Well how wrong I was about that Also Ava was completely smitten with Byrnes so the two of them together was truly a surpriseI liked Byrnes from the start This serious cold blooded Nighthawk who was always by Lynch side Of course I was in love As for Ingrid I found her kind of annoying and unpleasant at first Now that I better know her background I understand why she was like that So I worried for nothing that they wouldn t work as a couple They are actually wonderful And I especially like that McMaster paired a blue blood and verwulfen together This is an explosive combination and a very different dynamic I really liked that All this flirty banter and sexual tension Emotional passionate verwulfen against stone cold possessive predator inside a blue blood That was one hell of a battle of wills Like I said Perfect Mine it whispered and Byrnes actually blinked Then it was gone his vision sliding through shades of black and gray until color flooded back into his world and he had to wonder if he d imagined that Because if he wasn t mistaken the darker side of his nature hadust stamped its claim on the most frustrating woman he knew As much as I liked these two together I couldn t be happier when Lynch arrived on a scene God I still love him the most Every scene with him was precious And I was grinning like an idiot over him bonding with Byrnes They were so adorable when they were discussing family and babies And it s good to see Rosa didn t stop being her old self now that she is a duchess and a mother Rosa s not entirely certain what to think of this entire affair If she picks up her knife I d duck for cover if I were youI always duck for cover when Rosa s giving me that look Overall I enjoyed this book immensely The plot the characters the romance everything was perfect My only complaint and a very little one is that it was maybe too crowded with all the characters On the other hand I liked that their stories are all intertwined In the first series some of them didn t have many interactions with each other But all the loose ends might come together now It s no longer about winning your body Ingrid When I finish these challenges I intend to win your heart And a note for those "Who Have The Updated " have the updated version with the stunning new a note for those who have the updated Kindle version with the stunning new The epilogue is missing At least in my version it was gone when it was updated I don t know if this is an error or the author s choice It s really a shame because it is really beautiful If you have a chance to get your hands on it then you must You won t be sorry it s almost the best part of the book 35 stars I never used to dream Not when I was trapped in the cage because if you dared to dream then you would dare to hopeAnd nothing hurts than having that crushed and
Thrown In Your Face ARC REVIEWIf Youin your face ARC REVIEWIf you a fan of Bec McMaster s London Steampunk series hang on to your Kindles because you will love this ride We first meet Caleb Byrnes in the earlier series We know he s controlled disciplined and loves to solve puzzles His previous encounter with verwulfen Ingrid Miller left him tied up in knots and he is eager for payback They are partnered together to investigate the strange disappearance of groups of people blue bloods humans and others Given the fragile nature of the relatively new coalition government these crimes pose a threat to national security This is post revolution of the ueen s consort who was committed to maintaining a blue blood privileged society The ueen s government in contrast is trying to bring euality to all the different factions and move toward a democracy This government must show that they keep the citizenry safe I found the beginning of this book a little slow going not because the writing is slow but because I had to reacuaint myself with the characters from the previous series Because it has been awhile since I read my last London Steampunk book I found myself scrambling to remember the names and relevance of characters As the first book in a new series it can and does stand alone It is not necessary to be familiar with the characters but I want to map their relationship to last series As an adventure the story is suspenseful with lots of political intrigue There is a conspiracy led by a new breed of blue blood extremists that are intent on bringing down the ueen s government They are faster stronger and terrifying than the former blue bloods Yup this is going to be a fun ride Originally posted at Love Affair with an e Reader I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review I m so glad this series continued as although I liked how things ended in the last book in so many ways it brought things to a close The problem for me was what could happen next The ueen had finally taken back control but how would things progress Plus there were characters who I still had uestions about so it was with great delight OK perhaps some fan girl suealing that I sat down to read this story that transports the reader No Way Home just three years down the line Yes there have been huge strides made but not everyone is delighted with the changes gradually rolling out and in this book we start to see threads unraveling and conspiracies coming to lightThis book does focus on Byrnes the blue blood and Ingrid the verwulfen woman and frankly their chemistry is off the charts However there is a score to settle between them which is fun to read about but it s seeing the ensemble cast around then that really tickled my fancy Add in the dangerous new foes they are facing and as people go missing it s high time for answers Of course that means chasing down those members of the Echelon who are dissatisfied with recent. Ct the crown heumps at the chance to find out who or what is behind the disappearances Hunting criminals is what the darkly driven blue blood does best and though he prefers to work alone the opportunity is too good to resistThe problem He’s partnered with Ingrid Miller the fiery and passionate verwulfen woman who won a private bet against him a year ago Byrnes has a score to settle but one stolen kiss and suddenly the killer. ,
