Description

In the mist-shrouded streets of London, revolution is on the rise, vampires with ice-cold blood in their veins rule the streets, and war is brewing...
When her beloved father was assassinated, Lady Aramina swore revenge. The man responsible is well beyond her grasp, but his dangerously seductive heir, Leo Barrons, is fair game. When a bit of political intrigue gives Mina the evidence she needs to prove Leo is illegitimate, she has the means to destroy both the killer and his son-a man who troubles her heart and tempts her body.
A woman of mystery, Mina's long driven Leo crazy with glimpses of a fiery passion that lurks beneath her icy veneer. He knows she's hiding something, and he's determined to unravel her layer by silken layer. He just doesn't expect the beautiful liar to be the key to overthrowing the corrupt prince consort...or to saving his own carefully walled-off heart.
The stakes have never been higher: Mina has sworn revenge for her father's death, but the man she plans to destroy could be her own undoing...or the salvation of all London.

Review quote

"The steampunk technology is fun and the characters nice and spicy..." - Kirkus Reviews "McMaster has the uncanny knack for outdoing herself in each installment of her London Steampunk series... a perfect finale to a phenomenal series, and readers can only hope for more to come soon from McMaster's limitless imagination." - RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars, Top Pick! "With the fifth book in her London Steampunk series, McMaster once again proves her remarkable gift for cleverly fusing a nonstop, action-driven story, a deliciously dark and atmospheric setting, and off-the-charts sensuality into one riveting read.
" - Booklist "Of Silk and Steam is lushly atmospheric, and the chemistry between the two leads is explosive" - BookPage "I had an incredibly hard time putting this book down to work and sleep, because I was so caught up in the adventure and mystery. The romance is utterly sigh-worthy... McMaster creates a world I don't want to leave." - Fresh Fiction "Delivering on all fronts, OF SILK AND STEAM is a new top favorite. Top Pick!" - The Romance Reviews "This was a thrilling conclusion to the Steampunk London series. I heartily recommend this series!" -
