~~~Michelle’s ★★★★★ Review~~~
Dirigibles Are Forever was a HOT read…. Holly has mourned the death of her husband and now wants a wild night of passion with none other than Jack Smith. He is hot, tempting and makes her tingle in all the right places. I love a book with a headstrong lead female character who can handle her own.
After they are snowed in, Holly and Jack take the chance and go head on into acting on their heated passion…. Holy HOT lovin…..Good lord I needed a fan after reading some of the best sex scenes I have read (You’ll also need a cold shower after them).
I really enjoyed this book and Tina Christopher does an excellent job in keeping the book flowing. The characters were well developed which kept your interest. This book has it all….lies, deceit, panty melting hot sex and 2 very interesting characters.
I am very excited to share this with you. Jessie Potts (@booktaster), a reviewer for the USA Today HEA Blog, is calling Dirigibles Are Forever a MUST-READ Romance!
Working as an Aether Traffic Controller saved Holly Acklin after the death of her husband, but now she wants more—including a night of uninhibited passion with Jack Smith, whose very presence has kept her body tingling for months.
Special Agent Jack Smith kept his identity a secret when he came to the London Royal Port Authority with one assignment, one he cannot fail. It holds him back from following his attraction to Holly. But on the eve he must complete the mission, Holly asks for one night with no rules or boundaries, and his control snaps.
When London experiences an unexpectedly white Christmas, all dirigible traffic is grounded, leaving Holly and Jack free to act upon their stormy passions. Holly finds her determination to stay emotion-free crumbling unaware Jack is experiencing the same need. Each lover wishes for more, but fears it can’t be. Instead they focus their desires in mind-blowing passion.
But when Holly discovers that Jack isn’t who he claimed to be, everything is thrown into turmoil. Can she trust the man she thought she knew?
Why you should read it:
Steampunk is one of my favorite genres, especially when done well. I love the mechanics, the cogs and the alternate history. I haven’t read Tina before, but I love the way she combines steam and mechanics and really hope there’s a sequel (look below for proof!). The cover is also what immediately drew my eye. Holly is a spitfire and so independent, it was fun watching her and Jack banter, and though he isn’t honest, I loved that he’s a special agent. I also loved the taste of Christmas, and let me tell you, Tina can write some very, vey steamy bedroom scenes. My only complaint is that I want more. I love this world and want to know more about Jack’s agency, the backstory and, of course, I want to see many more dirigibles.
What Tina Christopher has to say …
Why do you like writing steampunk?
Tina: I’ve always enjoyed history and I love sci-fi, so for me it was a natural evolution to combine the two and imagine what happens when past and future meet. The idea of putting characters with certain values and experiences into unexpected situations has always fascinated me. And it’s fun coming up with gadgets and machines that could exist in the world I’ve created.
What are you currently working on?
Tina: Writing Dirigibles Are Forever was a blast, and after creating that world, I wasn’t ready to leave it. So I’m currently working on a three-book series set in the same world. Each book will feature an agent from Special Branch working to protect the Empire, but things never work out according to plan. The two things my heroes and heroines will be able to count on is getting into trouble and meeting someone special at the worst possible moment.
Epic one-liner from Dirigibles Are Forever?
“You miss the adventure, the relying on your wits to get you through situations, and engaging with people less conservative than your circle here in London.”
I may have squealed when I read this;). And don’t forget you can still win steampunk jewellery if you comment here.
I realised the other day I hadn’t actually shared my Happy News with an official announcement!
My editor at Ellora’s Cave has contracted Sexy Steampunk 2. It is scheduled to release April 16th. It is the sequel to Rescue by Ruin, but either book can be read without the other. They are both independent stories. I am just waiting for the finished cover to reveal the title (which I love;) and the cover.
My editor has also contracted Tangled Redemption, book 4 in the Celestial Surrender series. I am very excited about this book as it will tie up all the loose ends I’ve spread across books 1-3. It also finally puts the Spaniard on the page, something my critique partner has been asking for with every book. This is the first book I have sold on proposal. It is a little intimidating having sold a book that is not yet written, but I am certain I can make it work;).
And lastly, but by no means leastly, Loose Id has contracted my super-sexy steampunk Christmas novella Dirigibles Are Forever. The title is not final. The story has a bit of a James Bond theme (hence the title;) and is filled with smoking hotness and a lot of swashbuckling fun. The release is planned for December 2014.
I am very excited to share all these stories with my readers.
And to use my friend Lexi Post‘s catchphrase: It’s Happy News, that means it’s going to be a great day!
Have a fabulous week!
This is what’s going through my mind today. Well, the excited part, not so much the rest;).
The reason I am so excited is that Tangled Shadows is out in PRINT!
I’ve never had a book in print before, so this feels huge. I can’t wipe the big grin off my face:). I cannot wait to actually hold a copy in my hands. Let me just warn you there will be pictures.
A couple of days I also found out that Tangled Hunger is coming in print in December. Officially in December, because copies will be available for RomantiCon 2013. If you’re coming, you’ll be able to buy both book 1 and 2 in the Celestial Surrender series.
What is making you smile this week?
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it, I’m about to lose control and I think I…
