Steampunk + Paranormal
What more could you as for?
Positives: *Entertaining to the max. I could not put this book down. I love the way she writes and the world she has created. *Alexia is soulless. She always has an opinion about everything. She is witty. She is a spinster who finds Lord Maccon annoying and desirable. *Lord Maccon is the head of an investigation agency. He finds himself side by side with Alexia during a recent investigation. *Plenty of wit, romance and mystery to make anyone happy.

Negatives: *None. I loved this book.
"Alexia figured, delightedly, that this meant he did, in fact, tend to traipse around his private apartments in the altogether. Marriage was becoming more and more of an attractive prospect."
"My dearest girl,' said the vampire finally, examining Lord Maccon with an exhausted but appreciative eye, 'such a banquet. Never been one to favor werewolves myself, but he is very well equipped, now, is he not?'
Miss Tarabotti gave him an arch look. 'My goodies,' she warned.
Humans,' chuckled the vampire, 'so possessive."
"Miss Tarabotti was not one of life's milk-water misses--in fact, quite the opposite. Many a gentleman had likened his first meeting with her to downing a very strong cognac when one was expecting to imbibe fruit juice--that is to say, startling and apt to leave one with a distinct burning sensation."
"The ill-informed masses included her own family among their ranks, a family that specialized in being both inconvenient and asinine."
"Alexia suspected Lord Maccon's handling was a tad more than was strictly called for under the circumstances, but she secretly enjoyed the sensation. After all, how often did a spinster of her shelf life get manhandled by an earl of Lord Maccon's peerage? She had better take advantage of the situation."

Recommend: Great series about Vampir...more3rd book and still going strong! Jaz is my hero. Who wouldn't want to be an assassin for the CIA with a sexy boss.
Recommend: Great series about Vampires. Very original. If you like Cat and Bones series by Jeanine Frost then you will like the Jaz Parks Series.
Highlights: *Vayl and Jaz still have a thing going on. There is a hot scene with a great kiss in it. Vayl does get distracted with finding his sons reincarnated. The Seer is using him and Jaz must stop him from making a big mistake. *Cole confesses still loving Jaz. Very very awkward for Jaz. *Dave,Jaz's twin,CIA brings Jaz and Vayl's team on to find a mole in his group. Tempers fly and everyone is looking over their shoulders. *lots of *ss kicking by Jaz. *Jaz lays down the law with Vayl. Either her or his search for his sons.
Stressful points: *Vayl takes blood from the Seer who will help him find his sons. His mind hasn't been on the mission. Causes Jaz to go mad. *Dave is unknowingly the mole. Jaz has to kill him to get the wizard to stop controlling him.
Quotes: "So... you're an assassin?" Dave asked incredulously. "Why do I feel like you'd have used the same tone if I'd just confessed to being a stripper?" I demanded. "Sorry," he said quickly. "I'm just surprised, is all."
"communication is such a two-edged sword for guys. On the one hand, they almost always mean what they say. Refreshing, I know. On the other hand, getting them to actually say it can be like coaxing a corpse to tap-dance. Not that it can't be done. But it's so freaking exhausting. Not to mention the cost in heavyweight fishing line and Savion Glover videos."
"We went to the door and I let Asha in. I expected an uberawkward moment when he and Vayl met. But Asha took care of that problem right away. "So you belong to Jasmine," he said in his melancholy voice. It somehow delivered Vayl his deepest condolences without bearing a trace of malice toward me." (less)
