Publisher's Summary

When airship engineer Melody McKay's dirigible explodes and plunges her into the yard of a gothic manor, she suspects foul play. With her ankle injured - an indignity far too feminine for her taste - she resolves to crack the mystery while in the care of Victor Arrington, the stuffy yet disarming earl of Blackwell.

Ex-Royal Navy captain Victor runs a tight house and is on a mission to protect his niece and foil a ring of smugglers using fire-breathing metal dragons. He has no time for romantic attachments. Particularly not with women who fall from the sky wearing trousers and pilot's goggles.

As he and Melody navigate a treachery so deep it threatens the lives of everyone in Black Heath, the earl becomes unexpectedly attached to his fiery houseguest, and Melody discovers a softness in her heart for him. But when the smugglers strike, there's more at risk than just their future together.

Better without the progressive fetishism

I can only think the author chose to write in this time period out of a fetishized obsession with progressive theory and a desire to make heroes of feminist nonsense- due to an understanding that it isn't a problem people actually face in any real extent anymore, and the misguided belief that it was faced in the form of every attractive man in the past being a misogynistic autocrat who had to be made to change his ways.

It gets tedious working through the straw-man caricatures she puts up as foils for her right-thinking virtuous heroines every. single. time.

But- it is what it is, and if you can slog through that mess it's interesting enough.
