Set in an alternate gaslamp/steampunk Victorian universe, each book in Magic & Mechanicals stands alone and can be read in any order.
The only mistake Lady Adelle Thornber ever made turned into a scandal that rocked London and saw her banished to Scotland, the reluctant bride of a reclusive baron. But Lord Henry MacAulay isn’t what she was expecting: he cares deeply for his barony and for her.
As the sole heir to the Roseheath title and werewolf alpha, Henry knew that he had to take a mate someday. He just didn’t expect to find her in a disgraced noble’s daughter forced into marriage with him.
As he falls more deeply in love with Adelle, he can’t bring himself to tell her what he really is. But if he doesn’t, it may not be his werewolf nature that could tear them apart.
It was supposed to be a holiday to clear his mind and revive his career.
A chance look through the glass wall of Greaves Estate’s underwater ballroom has Lucien Quinn racing against the clock to save a woman from drowning in the sea. But it’s she who rescues him after he capsizes his boat in his mad rush, and she isn’t only a woman. Calla is a mermaid, exiled from her people and recently escaped from a scientist’s laboratory of horrors.
Struggling to overcome his own demons, Lucien welcomes Calla’s friendship and offers her a place to hide. Except not all demons are grief or loneliness. Some are human, and they have Lucien and Calla squarely in their sights.
Without any prospects or suitors, Elora Stone has been reduced to robbing her late uncle’s country home of its valuables to support herself. It should have been a quick journey to gather the silverware and pawn it until her theft is interrupted by the vampire who has taken up residence in the abandoned house.
Ben Lang knows exactly what kind of vampire he is: a terrible one. It’s been over a year since he was turned and he still can’t glamour humans, let alone the beautiful one who broke into his new home. When he tries to use the charm that got him through his human life, Elora can see through that, too, right into his lonely soul.
But blood is shed when one of Ben’s vampire acquaintances turns up and tries to take Elora for himself. With a nest of vengeful bloodsuckers after them, Ben and Elora have no choice other than to escape together and keep them off their trails.
As it turns out, running for one’s life is a lot easier to do when you’re not fighting an attraction, too…
