"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 a steam-fueled London, a clockwork army is on the rise, vampire blue bloods rule the streets, and war is brewing...
I Will Come For You...
He will find her no matter what. As a blue-blooded captain of the Nighthawk Guard, his senses are keener than most. Some think he's indestructible. But once he finds the elusive Mercury, what will he do with her?
It's his duty to turn her in—she's a notorious spy and traitor. But after one stolen moment, he can't forget the feel of her in his arms, the taste of her, or the sharp sting of betrayal as she slipped off into the night. Little does Mercury know, no one hunts better than the Nighthawk. And his greatest revenge will be to leave her begging for his touch...
The third trip to McMaster s vampiric steampunk world (after Kiss of Steel and Heart of Iron) is rich, dramatic, romantic, and dangerous. Rosalind (code name Mercury), the leader of the humanist movement in Victorian London, fights for humans to have equal rights in the aristocratic Echelon world. She despises the pseudo-vampires known as blue bloods. Hoping to locate her missing brother, Rosalind goes undercover as Rosa, a secretary for Sir Jasper Lynch: Master of the Nighthawks, blue blood, and sworn enemy of Mercury. Lynch s first encounter with seductive revolutionary Mercury left them both full of forbidden lust, and now he s developing feelings for his new secretary. Rosalind is torn between two worlds, surprised at how her opinion of blue bloods can change, but still wary and distrustful. Meanwhile, Lynch is investigating a series of horrific massacres committed by Echelon members in the throes of frenzied bloodlust. Sensuous memories and unfulfilled desires help build tension between the leads, and fans will enjoy the expansion of McMaster s detailed setting.
