I have recently fallen in love with all things steampunk! The dress, the technology, the fact that females are generally allowed freedom not found in historical romance. This book by Samhaim has it all. Give me a brainy heroine anyday!


The last thing she planned to steal was his heart.

The Company. Military institution, protector of Praeton and the nation of Grand Isle. Dirty rotten thief.

When Pandora Bramble steps aboard the Company’s premiere airship Daedalus it’s not for the exclusive VIP tour. It’s to secure proof that the Company stole the regulator valve her father designed—even if it means tearing the engine apart. Foiled by the unexpected appearance of a handsome crew member, she despairs of ever getting another chance—until he kisses her.

Captain Theolonius Hatch, sentenced to engine room duty for refusing to take part in the Company’s fleet week activities, never dreamed a woman like Pandora existed. Her brains match her beauty, a combination that adds up to more trouble than he ever expected.

As Pandora allows Theolonius to sweep her into a whirlwind courtship, her wildest dreams come true. As do her greatest fears, leaving her to decide what matters most. Loyalty…or love.

The clock is ticking.


Product Warnings

Thursday 13

Hello, this might be my last post in this blog. The wonderful Ria Ritchey is designing a website for me. It is up, but is only in the bare bones stage while she works on some extras like a contact page, importing this blog to the blog on the website and adding some photos. So here are 13 things about my new website:

1. The first thing is the web addy: www.maddybarone.com

2. I like my tagline: “Unlock Your Imagination” It covers more than just paranormal romance, since almost any book involves using your imagination. Someday I’d like top write other types of stories besides erotic romance.

3. The door with its iron scrollwork sits in mist, making me think of dreams, and the key hanging by my name hopefully invites the visitor to unlock the door.

4. I want visitors to feel like they can let go of everyday life and relax with my stories.

5. My “About Me” page may have to change. I’ve decided that a list of facts isn’t very interesting.

6. I haven’t gotten the final cover art for my book yet, so my “Books” page isn’t very inviting. I hope when I get the cover art it will immediatly draw the reader in.

7. I would like a side bars on every page. On the Home page I’d like to have my book with a purchase link in a sidebar so the visitor doesn’t HAVE to click every tab to find the important things.

8. I need to learn how to maintain and update my website myself.

9. I need ideas for what should be on my home page.

10. I need to know how often I should update the website.

11. I wonder how much does a website help an author sell books? Is it important?

12. I wonder if there is a way for me to add moire pages under my Books page in the future. Hopefully I’ll have a whole bunch of books on there someday.

13. I’m very excited to have a website!!

Doesn’t this sound good? I love the Nocturne line from Harlequin because we get great characters with paranormal stories that edge outside the box. Stephanie Draven has written several for this line and they are all good with interesting plotlines. Not the same old, same old.

He can wear the face of anyone who has ever hurt him…

This former soldier-turned-gun-runner thinks his true identity is safe, but a mysterious woman is about to force him to face the tragic past he thought he left behind.

She can disguise herself as the only woman he’s ever loved…

It’s not easy to be a Daddy’s Girl when your father is Ares, Greek God of War. To thwart her father and all those who serve him, Kyra intends to assassinate a modern day hydra. To kill him, she needs to seduce him, but Marco Kaisaris isn’t the monster she thinks he is–and even if he doesn’t break her heart, he may still be the death of her.

Can they see past each other’s masks to find a love that’s more than skin deep?

Gambit by Kim Knox

This is a book I’ve been eagerly waiting for. I’m off to buy it now! It’s cool and overcast here in North Dakota today. Perfect reading weather!

Gambit by Kim Knox

Captain Chae Beyon is a hustler, a mercenary pilot, a wounded woman who prefers her men to be easily thrown aside.

Daned Traern is a first-caste Ladaian bound by tradition and DNA to protect his race. He’s willing to align himself with the hot space captain if she’ll transport him home in time to ensure the right candidate is crowned—and thus prevent a bloody war.

Disguised as Chae’s sex toy, Daned is erotically bound to her through living gold, alien tech designed to increase pleasure. When he frees himself, their passion only increases…but succumbing to temptation will bind them together—permanently.

But there’s more at stake than their needs. As Chae is dragged into a world of insane princes and sentient stones, hired killers hound them across the quadrant.

And then, as only her lousy luck would have it, Chae must choose between the good of the galaxy and her own heart…
