Spyders and cannibals and pissed off gods, oh my!
Duty-bound to journey across the Damned Plains to rescue her cousin, the Princess of York, from ruination, Miranda Anvers makes her way to Endville where she hopes to enlist the aid of Danner, a journeyman well known for his guide skills. Miranda is counting on Danner to get them to the fabled Crystal Palace where her cousin is being held.
I have to admit, it took a couple of chapters before I was able to get the flow of the writing and understand...more
There are a lot of really interesting concepts used in this story that I wish had been developed further. I could easily see this as a novel-length story with a little more time. I liked the steampunk elements combined with the author's take on Norse mythology, I th...more

Journeyman’s Ride by Marie Harte, is an erotica, and like most erotica, it’s filled with sexy, imaginative sex scenes, but what I like about this book is that it’s not entirely plotless and most of the scenes are tastefully done.The book is a novella length, short, but enough to keep you satisfied.
I enjoyed this book very much and I hope there’s more to come from Marie Harte.
Danner is a an honorable journeyman with the abilit...more
Journeyman’s Ride was a fantastic and fun quick read. With a bit of steampunk, erotica, mythology and fantasy mixed together Marie Hart has built an interesting and unique world to dive into. The terminology threw me a bit and this new world came with very little explanation though.
I did enjoy the characters and that is what counts for me. Danner is a courageous, honorable, and sexy lead man who has lived without love until he meets the uniquely beautiful Miranda. While Miranda has lived...more
I have not read any of Marie Harte’s other books. I will be going back to check them out though.
Now as I noted above, this is an erotica book. So if you do not like scenes that are sexually explicit, then you should shy away from this book. However, if you like things to get hot and heavy in your reading materials,...more

When I first read the blurb, I was a little concerned, because it says “Drawn by her lush beauty, he agrees to guide Miranda across the Plains if she’ll let him explore her body each night.” This bothered me for two reasons — first, it m...more
I really enjoyed the world that Marie Harte built here, but it wasn't explained in any way. Things had names, but no real descriptions of what they were beyond the very basics. Regardless, I think it was very interesting and would have probably enjoyed a thick novel full of world building and explanations of weird clockwork gadgets and the various dimensions, deities, etc. I thought this was part of a series and maybe the world bu...more
Really liked the main characters Miranda and Danner, but oh dear oh dear, I wish there was more world building. This novella would have mad an ace novel. I enjoyed the marriage of Norse and other mythologies in particular.
Marie lives in Oregon with her family and is constantly reading and writing.
