2.99 Steampunk Romance: A Gentleman and a Rogue #kindledeal

GOLD Winner - 2013 Reader's Favorite Contest in Romance: Historical

BLURB: Lady Keira Russell is destined to bring compressed natural gas to Britain. Her inner courage and mental toughness rarely falter – except when Prince Edmund Windsor is involved.
Edmund of Wales is from the future. His last jaunt through history muffed up the time line. Now, he's here to set it straight and win Keira's heart.
For Keira, if it isn't one obstacle, it's another. Queen Victoria has sponsored a competition to find a cleaner fuel source than coal. Keira's father is trying to build a windmill and the Ridgecrofts are working with gasoline. Then there's Edmund, whose sensual kisses and heated stares distract her down to her bones.
Keira has a choice: trust Edmund's notorious mischief-making or put her faith in Queen Victoria to make the right decision, but if Keira makes the wrong choice, the future of Great Britain will be changed forever.

BOOK TRAILER For Book 1, Victorian Scoundrel:


Keira stepped forward and stood next to Edmund. With a gentle touch, she placed her hand on Edmund's elbow. Pride swelled through him. He wasn't quite sure what to do next, but he needed to put Jonas on notice concerning Keira.

Jonas nodded, acknowledging Keira. A new respect grew in his eyes and Edmund scowled. No way in Hell would he allow Jonas near his woman.

"You are a rogue, Mr. Byron," said Keira.

He chuckled. "Be thankful I'm not a scoundrel like Mr. Windsor. Now, I suggest you and the Windsors leave this room."

"Not until you tell me why." Keira's voice was firm.

"Why, what?"

"Why my father? This time? Why wind?"

Jonas cocked his head to the side and an amused little grin crossed his face. Edmund

wanted to smack that expression clean into next week. Instead, he gritted his teeth.

"It was His Royal Highness who piqued my curiosity when he asked me for my help with

the time traveling machine."
