"Heart of Iron is so impressive, it deserves a seal of excellence Like moths to a flame, readers will be drawn to the world and characters McMaster has created. Make room on your keeper shelves..."--Fresh Fiction
Second in a thrilling steampunk paranormal romance series, Lena Todd is pretty and vivacious, which makes her the perfect spy against the Echelon. But when she finds herself in too deep, she'll find herself at the mercy of Will Carver, the only man she can't wrap around her finger and whose kiss she can't forget.
Lena Todd makes the perfect spy. Nobody suspects the flirtatious debutante could be a sympathizer for the humanist movement haunting London's vicious blue blood elite. Not even the ruthless Will Carver, the one man she can't twist around her little finger, and the one man whose kiss she can't forget...
Stricken with the loupe and considered little more than a slave-without-a-collar to the blue bloods, Will wants nothing to do with the Echelon or the dangerous beauty who drives him to the very edge of control. But when he finds a coded letter on Lena--a code that matches one he saw on a fire-bombing suspect--he realizes she's in trouble. To protect her, he must seduce the truth from her.
With London on the brink of revolution, Lena and Will must race against time--and an automaton army--to stop the humanist plot before it's too late. But as they fight to save a city, the greatest danger might just be to their hearts...
A fresh, suspensful paranormal romance, Bec McMaster's London Steampunk novels will appeal to fans of Gail Carriger, Kristen Callihan's Darkest London series, and the Blud series by Delilah Dawson.
