      4.5 starsSix months ago, Honoria Todd, her sister and brother moved into Whitechapel to escape the Duke of Vickers, knowing the rookeries was the one place he would not dare to come. Instead Vickers placed a reward on her head. Blade is the self-styled ruler of Whitechapel and has his own reasons for thwarting Vickers. If Vickers wants Honoria so badly, then Blade is determined to hold on to Honoria all the more. When Honoria is summoned to see Blade, he offers her 'protection'. For a price. Wan [...]

      4 ½ stars – Paranormal Romance/SteampunkIt’s been a while since I’ve read such an imaginative paranormal romance. Bec McMaster has penned a noteworthy debut that’s bold, inventive, engrossing, and sensual. I really enjoyed this! McMaster has crafted an intricate, alternate London set historical with memorable, complex characters and unique elements of paranormal, steampunk, vampires, and verwulfen blended seamlessly without excessive world building to bog down the pacing or impede the r [...]

      “But I’m ’fraid I’ll ’urt you.” Honoria took his hand and dragged it lower. She slid it under her skirts, against the heated skin of her thigh. “That fear is why I know you won’t,” she whispered. Her other hand went to his nape and she dragged his mouth back to hers. “Make love to me, Blade. And don’t stop.”* Le sigh * I'm actually shocked by how much I enjoyed reading this For the love of steampunk , this was awesome !!!Steampunk has always been a subject of fascination [...]

      His hands came up and captured her face between them. “Damn you,” he cursed. And then he took her mouth in a blistering kiss.*sob*I am so happy this is over that I want to weep, mentally high-five myself for finishing it, open a bottle of tequila to celebrate and then treat me to a two week vacation to Aruba.And the funny thing is that the poor book was not THAT bad. It was all a huge misunderstanding, I'm telling you. This book and I, we were never meant to happen. I joined the group readin [...]

      October 20, 2017: $1.88 on US amazon/Kiss-Steel-LonI really enjoyed this book. I had no expectations and was pleasantly surprised that it was so addictive to read. This is more of a paranormal historical romance with a dash of steampunk. I love the world the author created and her take on vampires. I won't go into the plot because I'm sure many have already done that in reviews. My only semi-complaint is that about 70% through, a few of the more typical PNR things started happening, like the mal [...]

      It's a sinister city the Victorian London Bec McMaster has reinvented for us in her debut novel. A hopeless place shrouded in gloom where men and women move like resigned shadows while an oligarchy of quasi-vampire aristocrats, the Echelons, rule the country keeping queen and king like puppets on strings, and where few options are left to humans when the easiest way to survive is to become a thrall, a sort of blood-slave providing the nobles an endless flow of nourishment in exchange for protect [...]

      5 STARS!Bec McMaster has masterfully created a sinister city in the Victorian London. It is filled to the brim with paranormal creatures and Bec's take on the steampunk genre. Her characters were so creative and flawed that I was immediately drawn into their story. Speaking of story, the plot was well-paced and so immersive. I was legit hooked on the story from the very first chapter. Honoria was such a badass heroine. Trying to hide from her past, she finds herself taking risks to care for her [...]

      If you’re reading this, you at least trust some of my judgment when it comes to books. That being said, stop and go purchase this book. I can tell you that I absolutely fell in love with it! The worldbuilding is astounding and makes me wish I could put on a corset and dive right in. The characters are strong and vivid (and don’t forget sexy when it comes to Blade). The writing is unparalleled and upbeat and the last few chapters? Awe-fucking-some! I don’t usually enjoy steampunk but this o [...]

      OKAY Vampires and werewolves and steampunk AND victoriana? wow it's a lot mashed together in series these days. I've actually read SEVERAL series with these mashups, but I think this one did a very good job, moreso than other books I've read, to make it a believable world. The main character is hiding from the bad aristocratic vampires in the outcast part of London ruled by the sexy outcast vampire. I mean, it's pretty obvious what's gonna happen with the setup (the relationship part) but the jo [...]

      Please forgive me while I rave about Kiss of Steel - what a great melding of steampunk and paranormal romance. I have become enamored with steampunk romance recently, but there aren't many books in the genre where the steampunk trappings are integral to the story. Kiss of Steel is one of the rare ones where the steampunk elements are woven into the fabric of the background instead of relying on 'hey, there's an airship' decorating the story in order to steampunk-ize it. And I thought that the al [...]

      Wow! Where has this little gem been hiding all this time? Awesome characters, excellent story and great writing.Note: The cover of the book has nothing to do with Blade and Honoria, but I won't hold it against the book. Publishers will be publishers, what can we do?

    12. -y.a on said:

      I enjoyed this debut a lot. I don’t think Kiss of Steel is a steampunk novel like Brook’s Iron Seas series. It is more like a paranormal romance with a touch of steampunk elements in an alternate London. The mix of Blade’s dialect, vampire, blue blood, the Fade, and virus is very creative.Blade:He couldn’t read or write much. But he always knew number. Raw, dark, passionate, protective, kind, charming, and sweet. This tortured hero was quite complex and I really liked him.Honoria:She was [...]

      Kiss of Steel is the first installment in Bec McMaster's steampunk/paranormal series titled London Steampunk. It's been a long while since I read good steampunk so when this title was voted BOTM on one of my groups, I acted on my motivation to pick it up. This wasn't typical steampunk in my opinion. It was more centered on vampire/paranormal romance (which was pretty good), combined with some other plot fillers that didn't really keep my interest much. In the end, the story fell in the middle f [...]

      Sometimes, a girl just needs some steamy romance in her life, even if it is of the paper (or well, audio) variety. A few days ago, I found myself in desperate need of just that – a hot, romantic steampunk read: part action, part interesting world and three parts swoon-worthy love story. With Kiss of Steel, that’s exactly what I got.McMaster created a rather impressive world, one strong enough to be the foundation for a lengthy series, if necessary. Although steampunk is not her strong suit, [...]

      Honoria Todd and her younger siblings have disguised themselves and fled to Whitechapel,  the roughest and one of the most dangerous places in London, to get away from the Echelon, the people who murdered their father. Whitechapel is one of the few places where the Blue Bloods don't have complete control, instead Blade a mysterious Rogue rules over them and he seems to have taken an interest in Honoria, but can he be trusted, or will he just use them as a pawn to get the revenge he desires over [...]

      3.5 stars. This was a fun listen from an experienced narrator. I know Allison Larkin has fans and dissenters and mixed reviews. I tend more toward the fan side because she does a good job with timing and voices, but if you’re not used to her style, you might find her to be a wrong fit here. Her narrator voice doesn’t lend itself well to the gritty steampunk scene, since it is more lyrical and higher pitched than many other narrators. Anyways, I digress. Back to the story. I have tried maybe [...]

      B+ 4.5 stars Read for the October prompt of RS/PNR in the 2017 TBR Challenge. Published in 2012, Kiss of Steel is Bec McMaster’s début novel and the first in her London Steampunk series.  Rather like Kristen Callihan’s Darkest London novels, the books in this series are set in a recognisable Victorian London, which enables the author to get right into the story without the need for extensive description, as the locations and references to things like the London Underground and the rookerie [...]

      4.25 stars.Hmm, I have a new sexy book boyfriend, Blade! He's hot, protective, and badass.This book was great. I enjoyed the setting, an AU Victorian era steampunk London where most of the elite males are all slowly transitioning vampires. Honora is an interesting character. We meet her as an older sister struggling to keep a roof above her family's head. She is brought to meet Blade, the man who runs the Whitechapel district, since her new home is the area under his protection. They are both in [...]

      After her father was murdered, Honoria fled from sadistic lord who wanted to possess her. With her sister and brother she has found a refuge in the rookeries of Whitechapel, an area ruled by criminal gangs. And the most dangerous gang of all is ruled by Blade. She has done her best to avoid his attention but little goes on on his turf that he doesn't know about. With the evil duke still hunting her she reluctantly enters into a deal for Blade's protectionbut what Blade doesn't realise is she may [...]

      So, so disappointing. And confusing enough that I have a headache now. I skimmed through the last 50 pages or so, but I'm still marking it as read. Another cover that ended up betraying me. :/Group read with my fellow Dark Siders.

    23. Anzu The Great Destroyer on said:

      For those of you who are thinking what the hell is wrong with her for even trying this book, let me tell you something. A group read is a group read. You have to show some solidarity. You have to stick to your friends no matter one. I managed to stick to my fellow buddy-readers for about 15% of the book. I could not take more.The main reason why I hated Kiss of Steel is the cheese. I don’t like cheesy books, and I hate cheesy romances. And this, my friends, is a cheesy romance. (no surprise th [...]

      Do you ever have those moments where you start reading a new author and the story/writing is so wonderfully spellbinding that before you're even halfway in you KNOW that this is now one of your favorite authors? Yes, that happened. I couldn't put this one down (even though I have a tight writing deadline looming myself). I woke up thinking about these characters and my mind kept wandering back to them throughout the day. That's when I knew McMaster had hooked me well and good. Why did I fall so [...]

    25. Susan (susayq ~) on said:

      This is definitely a 5 star read cause I finished it this morning and haven't been able to get Blade and Honoria off my mind since. I loved their romance. It wasn't too fast and there wasn't any extra added drama, just for the sake of drama. I really liked Blade. While he was a badass Blue Blood, he had this vulnerable side that came out when he was with Honoria. The world that was created for this series was great too. While I admit to being a little confused about vampires and Blue Bloods at f [...]

      Another fantastic steampunk series!!!Excellent characters, great plot, very interesting world-building, fantastic writing, witty dialogue, hotness over the charts what more could I want?Really, really excellent! and this is one of those times when I'm asking myself what have I waited for to start reading it!!!???

    27. Celestine on said:

      I never knew steampunk could be so fun! Or so gory! Or so romantic! Lots and lots of people have read and reviewed this wonderful book, so I won't put anything structured together. Here are some random impressions of this example of this weird and colorful genre:* Honoria was proud and tough and never faltered for a second in understanding her own worth. Because of this she was able to hold out to the seduction of Blade and the treachery of Vickers and the abandonment of her father. She was a tr [...]

    28. Camly Nguyen on said:

      UhhhNot really sure what to think about thisSummary: Honoria randomly comes looking for a protector because there's a large bounty on her head. She finds Blade. She pays him with speaking lessons because she's broke. (By the end of the book, she didn't even give one single lesson and he still speaks improperly.Lol dafuq?) Anyways, turns out, she keeps running out of money and needs Blade to save her brother's life so she pays with sexual favors and blood (he's a blue blood so he feeds off of blo [...]

      I'm reading again Don't act so surprised.After reading this on a train ride to my next destination for my vacation, i decided on my rating.≈I enjoyed the book, 7 hours by train don't pass by really fast unless you read.Anyways.The book was good, good story line, the romance was good enough. It just didn't get those 5 stars from me. Tho i do love some steampunk. That's all for today, ladies

      I was seriously disappointed with this book. Historical romance with vampires and a few steampunkish thingies added into it. and not a very good HR at that.
