Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Stephanie Laurens returns with a new series that captures the simmering desires and intrigues of early Victorians as only she can. Ryder Cavanaugh's stepsiblings are determined to make their own marks in London society. Seeking fortune and passion, the Cavanaughs will delight listeners with their bold exploits.

An independent nobleman

Lord Randolph Cavanaugh is loyal and devoted - but only to family. To the rest of the world, he's aloof and untouchable, a respected and driven entrepreneur. But Rand yearns for more in life, and when he travels to Buckinghamshire to review a recent investment, he discovers a passionate woman who will challenge his rigid self-control....

A determined lady

Felicia Throgmorton intends to keep her family afloat. For decade, her father was consumed by his inventions, and now, months after his death, with their finances in ruins, her brother insists on continuing their father's tinkering. Felicia is desperate to hold together what's left of the estate. Then she discovers she must help persuade their latest investor that her father's follies are a risk worth taking....

Together - the perfect team

Rand arrives at Throgmorton Hall to discover the invention on which he's staked his reputation has exploded, the inventor is not who he expected, and a fiercely intelligent woman now holds the key to his future success. But unflinching courage in the face of dismaying hurdles is a trait they share, and Rand and Felicia are forced to act together against ruthless foes to protect everything they hold dear.

steam engine more prominent than romance

Protecting a steam engine from sabotage was the majority of the story. The romance was the minor component. A couple of kisses was all it took to solidify this couple.

Too much talking about thinking abd planning.

I felt like I am treated as a person who needs to be told over and over why this and that is important and what the plan is. Really annoying and boring. Does not feel like it is the same person writing the stories now as the stories from few years ago.

Boring! Not her usual

No chemistry between main characters. Didn’t care for all the details about inventing etc. Didn’t love the voices for the female characters!
