This is a Victorian romance novella with a steampunk twist. It is a companion to the Artifact Hunters series.
Amy Hamilton is a good girl. She always did exactly as society demanded, kept her eyes downcast, never spoke out of turn, and hid the myriad of questions swirling in her brain. In return for shutting off her intellect she landed an abusive fiancé and was cast aside by the ton.
Disgraced, she seeks refuge at the Lyons' country estate. There she is given a bracelet made from a unicorn's tail and told it contains enough magic to grant one wish. She knows what she wants, someone to love the true her, and not the shallow image that smiles back from the mirror.
She never expected the unicorn to send her two men…
Lachlan Hawke - dashing airship pirate and notorious rogue.
Jackson Jackson - the scarred henchman and enforcer for the Lyons Empire.
The two men have a bet, who will be first to win a kiss from the delicate rose? The loser to be tarred and feathered. Loki is sure of a quick victory and that Jackson will be impersonating a chicken by the end of the week. Jackson doesn't even know why he agreed to the stupid bet, the girl shudders whenever he enters a room. But the men are about to learn you should be careful making bets when a unicorn is involved….
Couldn’t put this book down!
Enjoyed the love story with some
adventure and the time period it is set along with some of the technology l. I didn’t want to stop reading it.
An excellent story of Amy and Jackson! Jackson and Hawke are both competing for Amy. But the expression don’t judge a book by its cover is applicable here. Jackson is wooing Amy and Hawke is trying to. Let’s add a mistake with action definitely humor and the romance will win. Amy will discover herself and will take a page out of Cara’s book. Explore and then decide. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did because it is excellent!
