Blurb: When Queen Victoria orders Sexton Dukenfield, premiere phantom hunter, to track down England’s missing ghost he stumbles into Ceridwen, a phantom warrior woman of an ancient Celtic tribe. Not only does he find her intriguing as a piece of the puzzle of the missing spirits, but he’s also haunted by her sultry sensuality. Though they both burn with desire, it’s difficult to quench their fiery passion since Ceridwen is so translucent. Every time Sexton touches her, his hands pass through her ...more

[I received a copy of [book:To Love A London Ghost|12833834] through a Goodreads giveaway.]

I'm going to be honest here, but I have conflicting opinions about this novel. On one hand, it has a good enough structure that would successfully create an interesting story line.

I love to read the fun genre of Steampunk and Maeve Alpin hits all the right notes. The Victorian age and characters, the clockwork machines and a sexy ghost make for a very entertaining story. I really like the main characters: phantasm exorcist Sexton Dukenfield, Celtic phantom warrior woman Ceridwen, penniless waif Kate and the housekeeper who keeps them fed and going. On orders of the Queen, Sexton and his group search for England's missing ghosts and have to battle greedy factory owners. It ...more

Maeve Alpin loves reading and writing about ancient times. It’s only natural that she loves alternative history such as Steampunk just as much. She had a lot of fun combining the prim and proper, frill and lace of Victorian age with the technologically advanced phantasm debilitater machine along with a brave, free living, ancient Celtic warrior woman and a gruff ghost hunter. Drawing on her love o ...more
