Kiss of Steel

Kiss of Steel  - Bec McMaster a highly entertaining read. Paranormal, vampire and steampunk are not exactly my genre but i enjoyed it. the book is strong in drama and sexual energy but weak in romance. However i imagine, in this genere, sexual tension is the equivalence of romance.

Blade reminds me a little of Derek from Lisa Kleypas' Dreaming of You. He is the star of this book. Honoria......I like her well enough but she is too much of a mother hen for everyone except for Blade. I think loyalty to family is admirable and all. But the characters, usually the heroines, allow their loyalty issues blind them, I lose my admiration. Honoria protects everyone, her sister, her brother and even her half brother, but for me it took her too long to have a care about Blade, who has been more than kind to Honoria.

I have never read any steampunk novels so I am not expert. But I don't think this book could be classified as steampunk, which I am grateful for. It is more vampire than anything. I don't think steampunk lovers would be happy with this book.

By the way, BAD BAD BAd cover. This is not Honoria at all.
