Snippet Sunday: 2.99 Victorian Scoundrel, steampunk romance

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my steampunk romance: Victorian Scoundrel, Book 1 in The Windsor Diaries. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:



This snippet:  Alice meets two "gentlemen."  


*****
The men looked at each other, at her, then back at themselves. She wasn't sure if they were befuddled, confused, or wanted to laugh. Finally, the older gentleman spoke. "Princess Alice is seven years old."
Alice bit the inside of her lip, realizing she had totally forgotten where she was due to the younger gentleman's attention. She slid her glasses back on. "Simply call me Alice -- Alice Windsor."
"And you may call me Prime Minister."
****

Victorian Scoundrel is a time traveling steampunk romance and is book one in "The Windsor Diaries." Alice follows her cousin, Edmund, back in time, but can she stop him from changing history?

2011 Hope Chest Reviews Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Romance Series

Long & Short Reviews, 4 Books, Larkspur: It’s the perfect romance if you love the proper etiquette of the Victorian era mixed with the fantasy of time travel. This is the first in this new series and I’m excited to read the next episode." 

Scorching Hot Reviews: 4 Stars:
Overall, a fun and breezy read that really doesn’t take itself seriously. With sweet and funny characters, the tale was enjoyable and engaging. A fantastic edition to the steam-punk genre....bring on book two :)

Hope Chest Reviews: 4.5 Stars:
Victorian Scoundrel was a nice easy read, but sometimes that's just what the doctor ordered. The pacing was pretty snappy with the plot moving right along, while the dialog was sharp and sometimes witty.

  1. Interesting that he gives her his title instead of his name.

  2. You definitely showed the Prime Minister's personality in this snippet. I guess because this is a small snippet out of context so it's a little confusing - but you still did a good job of setting the tone.

  3. Oops, if she's back in time then she's going to have a hard time establishing her identity.

    Also, I'm not sure if the gentleman's response is genuine or sarcastic.
