A collection of erotic romance in the Age of Steam, featuring a
Cara St. Cross is determined to play at the highest-stakes poker
club in all of Great Britain even if getting in requires her to
dress like a man. Stanley, Lord Greenhope, doesn't truly believe
that "Mister" St. Cross has had relations with his wife, but that
doesn't stop him from challenging the (wo)man to a duel.
In the early Age of Steam, duels are still legal, young ladies
get kidnapped to Gretna Green, and only the villains seem to care
whether Cara wins at the tables.
As well as the Regency novella, this collection includes three
short stories of Victorian-style steampunk erotica:
Miss Carlotta Stembridge crafts her own troupe of dancing
automatons in "The Clockwork Dancers." When she meets a
flesh-and-blood dancer who steals her heart, she must fight society
and her own creations if she wants to keep him in her life. In "On
the Curious Condition of the Anachronism in Modern Aviation
Structures," First Mate Jess Priory of the merchant airship Aer
Nova offers passage to a handsome doctor. Lucky thing she did,
since his skills come in handy when the ship is attacked The
possibility of a time machine causes more problems than it solves
in "Dorothea Franklin's Marvelous Machine." Thankfully, the
inventor can console herself with the darkly sexy, powerful Sir
George, Grand Master of the London Masons.
