it was amazing

In short, this collection of 13 steampunk romances was both what I expected and more. I was interested in reading steampunk stories but I didn't want to just dive in and buy series and expensive books.
I came across Corsets & Clockwork when I finished reading Kiss me deadly.
I must say that of all 13 stories there was only one that I felt was out of place. Everything worked for me, even the two stories that involved a vampire (of the two I only liked one, the other was too disoriented to understand and get into). The one that didn't fit was a good story but it took place in the 1960s and felt like it belonged in a 1940s to 1970s Sci-fi romance collection, not in this collection.
If you like Steampunk, romance, adventure, some history (around 1860 to 1890; with the exception of the 1960s story) and/or science then I highly recommend the book.
I do see myself re-reading this book in the future if that means anything.
