A LADY CAN NEVER BE TOO CURIOUS
Genre: Fantasy, Steampunk
What’s not to love about a story with a smart protagonist challenging her traditional upbringing, a steamy male lead with an abundance of loyalty and lots of steampunk gadgets? Well, there are small things not to love: Our heroine is a bit too whinging, our sexy hero undermines her intelligence while claiming to admire it and the cool gizmos only go so far. Still, this is a fun, distracting and entertaining read with plenty of racy moments to help pass an evening.
Janette and her best friend Sophia have spent years looking out Sophia’s window at the offices across the street: The Illuminati who live and work there do not adhere to the stifling dictates of society, and the women wear pants and work alongside the men. Despite being told how scandalous it is, Janette cannot resist the draw and sneaks into their building one day — only to discover she is not what she appears to be. And her life will never be the same again. (SOURCEBOOKS, Aug., 320 pp., $6.99)
