Forged By Desire by Bec McMaster

Forged By DesireHiya, everyone. Gemma here, bringing you this week’s installment of Books Kicking Ass.

Recently, I had the privilege of reading Forged By Desire by Bec McMaster. This is part of her London Steampunk series. Don’t let the fact that it’s the 4th in the series hold you back. It was the first one I’d picked up but I found it reads as a stand-alone book. I’m itching to go back to read the first three, and then the next one, which was released in March.

McMaster created a dark, edgy, kickass heroine with a secret to hide and a mystery to solve. The book held my attention from beginning to end with its alternate universe set in London. This is actually the first steampunk book I’ve ever read and I found myself scratching my head, wondering why the hell I hadn’t picked one up before. Booklist Reviews called her series gritty, intense and mesmerizing and they were spot on. Chock full of hard-edged characters, an imaginative world and political intrigue. And even a happy ending.

Forged By Desire is nominated for a 2015 RWA Rita Award in Paranormal Romance and rightly so. It’s available in print and digital at all major retailers.
