Jesse Winthrope is a self-made millionaire who has quickly risen from his own humble beginnings. Rocketed high into the upper echelons after the invention of his high efficiency Winthrope Steam Engine, Jesse is poised to take on the Western Frontier, starting in the city of Diablo.
Jenny Boone is from a hard-working farming family, living off the land far from the city and its technological marvels. However, circumstances beyond Jenny’s control force her into the clutches of a highly judgmental population.
Going to work in one of Winthrope’s factories, the two find each other and along with it a love that crosses both finances and prejudices.
Can their feelings for each other survive, or will society get the best of them, dousing the fire in their hearts?
Another great read
This was my first read in steampunk. Reading a book whose genre is new to the reader can sometimes be scary or daunting. Not so with Steam Tycoon. Golden supplied the necessary tools to follow along as the plot unfolded. It easy to follow along as the plot thickened. The plot itself took several unexpected turns when I thought I figured it out. It also had to be said that Golden has the ability with words that make you stop and truly think about what he's saying. In all, I want to read the sequel to Steam Tycoon.
The steam tycoon
Better title would be the steam porn.
This was my first steampunk novel, and now it most certainly won't be my last. One thing I can always expect from a Golden Czermak book is descriptive imagery so fine, that I can clearly see the scene set before me. As you go through the pages, a vivid set and cast of characters unfolds. We're introduced into a new world of gears, cogs and machinery as we discover that the good in people can exist in unexpected places. A quite enjoyable read, that I'd highly recommend.
