Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen (Celebrating Romance Awareness Month & the Proper Romance Line)

Today is National Just Because Day! Did you know that? As part of celebrating Romance Awareness Month and the Proper Romance line of books, I'm highlighting another book.

This one is a little against the norm for this line of books, but one I absolutely loved! Of course, it helps that I love Steampunk and that's what this one is. So, you should read it, just because...

Beauty and the Clockwork Beast
(A Steampunk Proper Romance)
by Nancy Campbell Allen
Adult Steampunk
Paperback & ebook, 352 Pages
August 2nd 2016 by Shadow Mountain


Just like in the classic"Beauty and the Beast, "this Steampunk Romance features an unlikely love story.

When Lucy Pickett arrives at Blackwell Manor to tend to her ailing cousin, Kate, she finds more than she bargained for. A restless ghost roams the hallways, werewolves have been reported in the area, and vampires lurk across the Scottish border.

Lord Miles himself is clearly hiding a secret. He is brash and inhospitable and does not take kindly to visitors—even one as smart and attractive as Miss Pickett. He is unsettled by the mysterious deaths of his new wife, Clara, and his sister, Marie. Could Miles himself be to blame for the deaths?

Working together, Miles and Lucy attempt to restore peace to Blackwell Manor. But can Lucy solve the mystery of Miles? Can she love the man—beast and all?

Also includes a 15-page bonus prequel novelette, Marie s Story. Marie Blake is Miles s younger sister, and her untimely death begins the story of "Beauty and the Clockwork Beast. "Set on the eve of her murder and told in the first-person from her point-of-view readers will get to her know her as a person, and not just as the ghost who haunts the halls of Blackwell Manor. The story provides greater depth and more personal details to one of most memorable characters in the novel.
