When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother's side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairy tales.
Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park and left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair.
Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.
*This is an exciting collaboration between a Steampunk writer and a Paranormal Romance author. Together we are blending the two cultures as seamlessly as possible so that fans of both genre will love what we’ve come up with.*
I read the book description for this and was immediately interested, yes, another story was calling my name. When I started reading I was pleasantly surprised to see how effortlessly the authors had mixed the two genres. I found no oddities, no glaring gaps, no hesitations, just a wonderful story about an English lord and his life.
When the young boy in the wheelchair caught the young girl falling from the tree, it just had to be something interesting that he didn’t know about himself. As he grew up the only person that knew his secret was his aunt, or so he thought. When he was to meet the American heiress he had no clue that he was once again meeting the little girl that had fallen out of the tree. His life, as well as the girls, becomes way more interesting and they all learn new things about themselves and each other.
I give kudos to the authors for this book, it was a wonderfully written story, I would actually like to hear a lot more about. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, I believe it’s suitable for younger teens all the way up. Thanks for giving me the book so that I could read and review it, I truly enjoyed it.
