"Deftly blends elements of Steampunk and vampire romance with brilliantly successful results...darkly atmospheric and delectably sexy."—Booklist Starred Review for Kiss of Steel
In the mist-shrouded streets of London's dreaded Whitechapel district, werewolves, vampires, and a clockwork army are one step away from battle...
No One to Trust
Dangerous. Unpredictable. That's how people know the hulking Will Carver. And those who don't like pretty words just call him The Beat. No matter how hard Will works to suppress his werewulfen side, certain things drive him beyond all control. And saucy Miss Lena Todd tops the list.
Lena makes the perfect spy against the ruling Echelon blue bloods. No one suspects that under the appearance of flirtatious debutante lies a heart of iron. Not even the ruthless Will Carver, the one man she can't wrap around her finger and the one man whose kiss she can never forget. He's supposed to be protecting her, but he might just be her biggest threat yet...
McMaster s second paranormal set in a steampunk alternate London (after Kiss of Steel) expands an intriguing universe. Lena Todd escaped the slums and made her way into the vampire high society called the Echelon. The devious debutante has a secret: she s a spy for the humanists, a revolutionary group seeking to make humans socially equal to the blue bloods who rule the city. When Lena gets in over her head, only one man can save her: verwulf Will Carver, known as the Beast. As Will battles his lust for Lena, she struggles with her own feelings for him while fending off advances from a devious blue-blood duke. Even returning readers will have trouble keeping track of everything that s going on, but they ll love the sexy, action-packed narrative.
