Full disclosure here. The author is an old friend of mine. I read the short story that inspired this novel, "The Succubus" a couple of years ago, and loved it. I bought the book on a week ago and devoured it.This is erotic science fiction as I have never read it before. The setting is an alternate Victorian England. There are cybernetic machines, like computers and automatons, and they have filtered into every part of society. William is a young nobleman come home to England after the disastrou [...]
Full disclosure: I picked this up because I liked the cover. Which is so shallow, but it worked this time!This book combines elements of BDSM, steampunk, and romance, and that combination worked really well for me. There is a terrible villain, bizarre contraptions, and the main character gets to have a pretty impressive range of experiences during his sexual exploration. Oh, and the bizarre contraptions are for sex. Just want to make that clear. It was awesome.
This was my first venture into steampunk erotica and I'll definitely be back!The story here is richly woven and fairly dark, the erotic scenes are well-written (even at their nastiest!) although the storyline wavered a bit in the middle and it took me a while to sort out who did what. The characterisations were believable and both hero and eventual heroine both had the ability to make the reader sympathetic to their plight. On the whole, a very enjoyable read, I will certainly look at further bo [...]
Congratulations, Author Elizabeth Schechter, on your extra star for bisexual content! I enjoyed this erotic steampunk novel from Circlet Press. As is all too common in "bi" fiction, an unsatisfactory same-sex relationship in the past contrasts with an idealized romantic different sex relationship in the present. Luckily, though, Schechter throws in a happy menage a trois for our hero with a married couple in between. The writer makes the important distinction between BDSM and abuse by alternatin [...]
I've never come across a story like this one, that crosses genres so effortlessly. Historical, a degree of steampunk, BDSM and so tidily done. I was drawn in from the first chapter. The writing is skilled, light-handed and graceful and the range of erotic scenarios in this book is quite stunning. William is compelling and believable, and he's written with such conviction. He's a male sub and he's an incredibly strong one; note the 'and', not 'but'. I've not yet come across a male sub character w [...]
a compelling & unusual book. dead sexy too.
