Published: 2010
Genre: Romance, Steampunk
Rating: 5

Imagery quote to note:
A veritable sea os swishing skirts filled the dance floor.
- page 26, chapter 3

Description from the amazon:
Stubborn Evie is reluctant to play the roll of a proper lady by English standards, but she has little choice. Traveling to London for her first season, she faces the threat of an enemy submarine bent on destroying the airship carrying her across the ocean. Once she steps forward to help, her knowledge is questioned by the captain, placing her special gift in danger.

As a woman whose passion pushes her toward engineering and mechanical designs, her curious nature risks exposing her uncanny talents. Will this Christmas season allow her to keep her secrets? Or will her gift be revealed too soon?

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): mechanicals
Loved this read set during the Christmas holiday season in a steampunk world.

The fun tidbit about this read is the connection the protagonist has with mechanicals and metals.

Is that a hairpiece, no wait it's a brooch, or is it a mechanical squirrel???

fyi: kindle version is currently available at $2.99
