This is the third book in my Steamworks Chronicles, a series based on a steampunk world where you're likely to encounter alpha men, airships, goggles and my frankenstructs - special clones assembled from parts. Also in Book 2, Lust Plague, there are zombies. Though they are slightly gory and gross, boy they added zing to the story.
Steel Dominance is Dankyo and Sofia's story (Psst - no zombies in this one). If you've read Iron Dominance you'll know Dankyo. I've had so many people egging me on to write this one. This is primarily a Dom/ sub BDSM relationship set against a background of a steampunk Byzantium - the ancient name for the city of Istanbul which also used to be called Constantinople. There's one very hot scene with a mff menage but apart from that it's M/f all the way. Impact play, bondage, D/s and exhibitionism and all mixed in with some nasty-yet-awesome intrigue and action.
The first book in the series, Iron Dominance won Best Erotic Steampunk from The Romance Reviews in 2011.
Current Blurb for Steel Dominance:
A brilliant researcher, Sofia must unravel the ancient puzzle of the Clockwork Warrior or her career will be in tatters. Yet the tomb of the warrior is in the dangerous city of Byzantium, inside the harem of the Emperor. She knew she’d have to pose as a slave—but not that her “owner” would be the incredibly bossy, gorgeous bodyguard she’s been assigned.
A life of military duty has left Dankyo unprepared for Sophia. He’s never met a woman quite like this. She’s smart and beautiful, and she’s something that he’s finding almost irresistible—despite the way she fights against masquerading as his slave, she’s submissive right down to the bottom of her soul. And that’s bringing out every dominant instinct in his body.
But even as he realizes she’s captured his heart, the city explodes into madness. Surviving seems impossible. Can love and a Dom who will never give up overcome sheer bloody-minded evil?
