Heart of Steel

Heart of Steel


In the sequel to The Iron Duke in the Iron Seas steampunk romance series by Meljean Brook, Heart of Steel sees the exotic and dangerous captain Yasmeen on an action packed treasure hunt across Morocco.

As the mercenary captain of Lady Corsair, Yasmeen has learned to keep her heart as cold as steel, her only loyalty bound to her ship and her crew. So when a man who once tried to seize her airship returns from the dead, Yasmeen will be damned if she gives him another opportunity to take control.

Treasure-hunter Archimedes Fox isn't interested in Lady Corsair - he wants her cold-hearted captain and the valuable da Vinci sketch she stole from him. To reclaim it, Archimedes is determined to seduce the stubborn woman who once tossed him to a ravenous pack of zombies, but she's no easy conquest.

When da Vinci's sketch attracts a dangerous amount of attention, Yasmeen and Archimedes journey to Horde-occupied Morocco - and straight into their enemy's hands. But as they fight to save themselves and a city on the brink of rebellion, the greatest peril Yasmeen faces is from the man who seeks to melt her icy heart . . .

Meljean Brook's Heart of Steel is a fantastic steampunk adventure . . . with a sensuous, romantic edge.
