Iron Dominance (Steamwork Chronicles #1) by Cari Silverwood is a tantalizing combination of steampunk detailing and erotic sexiness. There's a lot happening in this first book of what is sure to be a phenominal series. The action, the setting and the characters all combine to make this a solid steam-y-punk read.
Raised from childhood as an assassin, Claire finds her world knocked off kilter when Theo Kevonis, a rich, ex-Air Corp nobleman, rescues her from an airship crash. Being a soldier of a hostile nation she cannot reveal her identity, but Theo sinks his steely Dom fingers into her heart and soul, showing her the pleasures to be found in surrendering to his touch. Captivated, Claire cannot help but bind herself in lie after lie rather than risk losing the one man who’s ever loved her.
When her loathsome commander returns from the dead, her deceit is uncovered. Somehow, Claire must find a way to win back Theo's trust and destroy the man who threatens them both.
