Phew! This book definitely earned it’s 4 flame heat level. For an erotic novella, it delivered in all areas – humorous dialogue, funny and sexy situations and great characters. I adored this story!

After inheriting her uncle’s laboratory as well as his inventor’s spirit, Violet creates a steam-powered dreamboat named Adam. Modeled after the incubus Lyle who haunts her fantasies. Her first and last sexual encounter with Lyle left her dangerously depleted of energy. Since she can’t have him, Adam is the next best thing, with Lyle being the prototype. But when Lyle discovers Violet’s naughty little secret, he may have a solution to keep them all very satisfied.

Even though Violet is half human, half succubus, her entire persona seemed more human than wanton predator. I also loved that she was a bit of a nerd. The playful and sarcastic dialogue between her and her full-blooded succubus sisters was very entertaining, as was the sexual tension whenever Lyle showed up. Small hints lead us to believe that Lyle may not be the selfish devil he’s made out to be. If his sexy voice and ridiculously good looks weren’t enough to set Violet’s heart aflutter, then his shared interest for machinery certainly does. And Adam …. he was delicious! I wonder if Violet takes orders.

This was a delightful and very sexy novella. Even if you’ve never read Steampunk before, it is easy to follow. Lila Shaw lends a great voice to her characters, and she sucks you into the moment with her detailed descriptions of her little made up world. I would definitely recommend this book.
