The short story that happens parallel to the first book in the series about an intriguing woman that was introduced there, Laurana Walsh.

While interesting and enjoyable, the story felt a bit too short and I would have liked to know more about the heroine and Lord Mayhem.

Thankfully, there's another short story about them Forget-Me-Knot, that I look forward to reading.

Edit: Forget-Me-Knot is not about them after all...

A pretty good, short, free story. Lady Laurana attends a ball when an infamous thief Lord Mayhem robs everyone there, so she decides to find him.
Since it is really short I won't write about what happens, nor what she feels or thinks. It would spoil the story. I like the writing, I like Laurana's voice and what kind of person she is and I am definitely going to read the first book in this series, Her Ladyship's Curse.
3.5 stars - I liked this little freebie story set in Viehl's Disenchanted & Co world - though there is very little of that world in this short. Still it was charming and I really liked the ending. The story crosses with Her Ladyship's Curse at the dinner scene with Kitt. I am looking forward to more of this series with magic, steampunk, and an alternate history US in which the Revolutionary War was won by the British.

This is a free read on the author's blog:

I'm just about to start the Disenchanted & Co series and am so glad I came across this free ebook from the author's blog. I'm sure it will give me a glimpse into what happened to begin the heroine's new life. Very good story.

My Lord Mayhem is set within the Disenchanted & Co story world in which Britain won the revolutionary war. It shows another perspective on the dinner scene found in Her Ladyship's Curse, but is its own tale, complete in itself.

Centered around Lady Laurana Walsh, eldest daughter of Lord Nolan Walsh, the banker, the story expands upon a character that we might not have gotten to know and shows us who she is and why, as well as revealing a few other surprises.

I mostly liked it. It's extremely short, which is a problem because there is not nearly enough world-building. I had to check to make sure I was reading the first one because I kept getting the feeling I was supposed to know what the author was talking about. It started out super promising (a steampunk book with a large, spinster heroine? Yes please!) but the romance ended up being a bit confused. Might have done better as a novella or full-length book. But, I'll give the next one a whirl.

Nice little novella, My Lord Mayhem is set within the Disenchanted & Co story world in which Britain won the revolutionary war. It shows another perspective on the dinner scene found in Her Ladyship's Curse, but is its own tale, complete in itself.
I read this after Her' Ladyship's Curse and enjoyed the link to events in it. Fun quick read.

This is a freebee off the authors website.It's a prequel to her new upcoming series and it is really good. It seems from the short that this will be steampunk adventure with magic and romance? I can't wait for the books to start coming out. Luckily that's tomorrow. :)

Sweet, fun and adventurous. I really liked this novella. It's not quite as good as the main series, but certainly worth a read. Very wonderful of the author to share it for free. Kudos to Ms. Viehl!

I'm so in love with this series right now. :)

I'm actually quite sad that this was only a novella -- I think it could have been expanded quite beautifully into a full-length novel, and I'm hoping that these characters will make an appearance in future Disenchanted & Co books.

4/5 Stars

I enjoyed reading it. The story is interesting, attracting, the ending is unpredictable. It has crime, secret, magic, detective, love and surprise - my most wanted things in a book. Best Christmas present ever

Short story set at the same time as book 1 in the series, hope to see more of Laurann and the Lord of Mayhem.
