How steamy is it? Simmering

Publisher's Summary

Magnus, Baron Findlay, longs to bring the wonders of the steam age to his remote island home, but his hands are full fighting the vicious kraken ravaging the coast. When he's swept to sea during battle and washes up on the shore of an isle in the Hebrides, he is near death.

Struggling to establish herself as one of the first female physicians in Edinburgh, Dr. Geneva MacKay is annoyed when The Order of the Round Table sends her north to care for an injured highlander. To heal him, Geneva escorts the handsome warrior home, just in time to defend the villagers from another onslaught. As the attacks escalate and they work together to fight off the threat, neither Geneva nor Magnus can resist the overwhelming attraction between them. But as their relationship deepens, a new threat arises - from within the village itself....

Narrator gets it

I’ve read this book several times. The steampunk and magic world-building is well-done for such a short novel. The romance is sweet. I wasn’t expecting the narrator to deliver the voices exactly as I heard them in my head, but she did!

Good- but not deep

There could've been more to this story! What an interesting idea but the author barely scratched the surface. Everything happened so quickly that you barely got time to fall in love with the characters falling in love. A good short story though.
