A dangerous technology could conquer the universe. Love could set it free.
Jane Austen Space Opera, Book 1

Fabulous steampunk worldbuilding by Burkhart. A sheriff, an assassin, and a scientist make for a delightful compilation in this polyamorous tale. Even though Lord Regret and Gil are hot, supernova hot--I'm intrigued and beguiled by Lady Wyre's creations.
Downside? Too short. More!
I'm not sure what it was the whole story just seemed to lack depth. All the surface stuff seemed good; the world, the plot, the characters. But as I read I just had this feeling that it was lacking anything beyond the words on the page. I didn't feel drawn in or particularly care for the characters even though I liked the idea of them all individually, however they just seemed flat ...more

What a unique world! Really loved the mix between regency, science fiction, historical, western, & cyberpunk. How did the author put all those genres together and smash them into a smorgasbord of greatness?!?! I have no idea but it rocked!
I loved the three main characters also. There's the smart & sexy Lady Doctor Wyre who more than held her own with whatever situations came her way. Then there is the lethal & deadly assassin Lord Regret who acts like a namby-pamby when it suits his ...more
Lady Doctor Wyre isn't like anything I've read before. I wouldn't say it's Steampunk but it's very close. It feels like a historical romance with futuristic technology. And instead of different countries, we have different planets. I first read some parts of the prequel Joely Sue Burkhart posted on her website, and I'm glad I did. The prequel really helps get a feel of the world. It also give some hints about the heroine's past and how she came to b ...more

Lady Doctor Wyre is set in a steampunk universe that resembles our world in a rather inventive way. It's a mix of historical and science fiction with more than just one steampu ...more
Please, read Ilona's review http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/....
I'm sorry mostly about the missed potential, the idea was good but was wasted.
Enjoyable as long as you don't expect much. Above all DO NOT expect a jane austeish romance. It should be clear from diffetent clues that the title is link bait, but better warned :)
Lady Doctor Wyre brings elements of Victoriana and Sci-Fi, combines them with true love and a harsh alpha-male dance for dominance and dominion.
