I received this as an advanced reading arc.

I have to say I really loved this story. The only thing that hurt it is the brevity. I wanted more. The characters were great but I wanted more of their back story. Although, it was well-written and had enough back story for the purposes of this short story, it was just so interesting that I wanted to read that entire story as well. A well-written short story seems to be a lost art. I stopped reading short story collections when authors started to write

A great second-chance romantic suspense tale.
This is an excellent steampunk that is a short and well-written tale about Sara Ramirez and Jordan Steele. From the author’s note to the excerpt from book 2 you will be fully engaged in the piece. I loved the cover too! I like that steampunk gives the reader a touch of gothic and this book was a prime example of that. I also loved the characters and cannot wait to read book two. If you like steampunk this is the book to pick up I know you will enjoy i

Five stars for this lovely steampunk short story.
Sara is a clever young woman and an amazing inventor. Her latest invention has ben stolen, and to get it back, she needs the help of her former lover, Jordan.
The writing is beautiful, the story flows in a mix of suspense and romance, and it makes me want to read more from the author.

A Touch Of Steel is Book 1 in the Silver Warriors Chronicles by Francis Rondon. This is the first book I've read by this author and I am looking forward to reading many more. Sara R (an inventor from a small town) has had her last invention stolen and has gone to the city to recruit Jordan S's (her ex-lover) help in finding it. It is evident that these two are meant for each other as their working together is bring their emotions to the fore front. Francis Rondon has created an awesome steampunk ...more

Not rating it because the erotic level was too high for me.
The writing's fine. If you like that sort of thing, this might be right up your alley.

This is a very clever short novel or possibly novella about a device made for agricultural purposes. But like so many inventions they can be used for a nefarious purpose. Meanwhile, the beautiful scientist and inventor has had her latest accomplishment stolen by her brother and she calls upon a rich, businessman, ex-lover Jordan to help sort things out.
The book is a real page turner with its fast paced action pact story line. It’s well written and presented in a flawless manor. A delight to re

A quick but enjoyable read.

An enjoyable steampunk read! The main characters are both alpha and the story focuses on them resolving issues after a break-up while solving a mystery together. The plot is quick faced. The characters are developed well. The editing is stellar.
