      at this time only reading:** Meljean Brook's The Blushing Bounder ~ 4 stars ~ read on November 4th, 2011. **This is about the Constable Edward Newberry and his wife, Temperance, who were basically forced to leave America and come to London. Temperance witnesses a murder and sets a series of events in motion. This is just the sweetest little novella I've ever read and so funny. I can understand why people like historical's because they are so prudish and they just do not communicate. I loved how [...]

      OK! I'm in love with 2 of these authors and unfamiliar with the 3rd, so I have a varied review on this, which is a delightful collection. The two stories I loved (by the authors I know and love) were KINDA wild and steamy, but more than that they were delightful romances set in worlds I love visiting."THE BLUSHING BOUNDER" by Meljean BrookThis is set in the steampunk world of the Iron Duke (which I reviewed and LOVED). It is just a really sweet, beautiful story about one of the tangental charact [...]

      Review only for The Blushing Bounder by Meljean Brook4.5 starsI haven't read the Iron Book #1 yet, so I have no idea about the larger series- but what a fabulous job the author's done here! It's a completely wild world- steampunk on tequila- of steampunk prosthetics, nanobots,and completely wacky contraptions. In this alternate reality, America is the more conservative society, from where Constable Newberry & his wife Temperance are thrown out for kissing in the streets (yikes!!). Temperance [...]

      3.5 for the Meljean Brook story The Blushing Bounder which is a short story prequel in her Iron Seas series.

    5. Audrey on said:

      3+ overall, but the individual stories definitely varied in quality and substance.The Blushing Bounder by Meljean Brook: 3.5-4 stars. This Iron Seas novella featuring Constable Newberry (first name "Edward," in case you didn't know) and his wife, Temperance, is sweet and adds some background and depth to a strong-but-silent secondary character found in the first Iron Seas book, The Iron Duke. Considering this is the last of the available Iron Seas stories that I had to read, I was excited to see [...]

      The Blushing Bounder by Meljean BrooksThis story was adorable. I'm not sure I will ever be a steampunk fan all the way, but this was incredibly imaginative, fun to read and with a sweet, sweet romance. I would not have called it particularly Wild or Steamy, actually, but I enjoyed it so much that it really didn't matter. I definitely want to read more romances by her, if only I can get over my aversion to the creepier aspects of steampunk.Vixen by Jill MylesThis was the one story of the group th [...]

      "The Blushing Bounder" by Meljean Brook.It’s hard to think of a less likely couple to inhabit an anthology called “Wild and Steamy” then the shy Constable Newberry and his ailing, resentful, proper wife. (Oh, I guess this is steamy as short for steampunk.) This was a sweet story but needed more development. 3 1/2 stars -- the extra half star is for the adorable huge, blushing hero. "Vixen" by Jill MylesNow we’re talking “wild” and “steamy.” Miko is a were-fox who’s opted out of [...]

      The Blushing Bounder by Meljean Brook - Iron Seas #0.5 novella I haven't read Meljean Brook's steampunk series yet so I had no previous notion of the Iron Seas world or characters. First I was amazed by the similar yet so different world Meljean Brook has created: where London is the liberal city compared to the more conservative America, where people have machines transplanted into their bodies to be faster, better. This novella packed so many novelties I kept marveling at all the tiny details [...]

      I actually did this one in a different order - I first bought it becuase of Brook's Iron Seas story. Knowing that it would likely be my favorite, I read the other ones first (I've learned something as I've read anthologies - especially ones where I buy them because of one particular story).Overall, I really enjoyed all 3 (and I was quite surprised that I liked one of them).The Blushing Bounder by Meljean Brook: This one was short but so very sweet. I really liked it because it was the first in t [...]

      $0.99 on NookThe Blushing Bounder (Meljean Brook) 3.75 star - (Iron Seas #0.4) I really liked this, it was a cute little story featuring Constable Newberry and his wife. I'm not sure how this story would be for someone who hadn't read The Iron Duke though. Vixen (Jill Myles) Kitten-tiger & The Monk (Carolyn Crane) 3 stars - (The Disillusionists Trilogy #2.5, Sophia) So first off, aside from a teeny spoiler about the sleepwalkers from Double Cross, you're fine to read this even if you haven't [...]

      This goes only for Kitten-tiger & the Monk (The Disillusionists Trilogy 2.5) by Carolyn Crane.Sophia Sidway, the most powerful memory revisionist and one of the most morally ambiguous side characters in the The Disillusionists Trilogy, is searching for the Monk so she can be disillusioned. She has regrets and wants to stop. Instead she found her lost childhood friend and love Robbie - the Tanglemaster who is the only person who can lead her to the Monk . I liked this story very much. It's a [...]

      **This review (and rating) is only for Kitten-tiger & the Monk by Caroline Crane.This novella is a must read for fans of the Disillusionists trilogy because it features the elusive Monk and explains the origins of the Tangle! I got the impression that Ms. Crane meant to explain this in one of the actual books in the trilogy and then couldn't find how to include it. I'm glad that we got to learn about this!You also learn more about Sophia's background. I don't know that I bought her change of [...]

      Review for Wild and Steamy by Meljean Brook, Jill Myles, and Carolyn CraneLet's review my criteria for writing a kick-ass novella. I actually love shorter stories. If they are done well. Which is difficult. You can't squeeze in a lot of stuff with 15,000 words. A novella should be an amuse-bouche. Just a tastetisfying in one, single bite. A quick introduction to the author's voice, a quick snippet of a love affair, a brief and intriguing look into a paranormal world.Making one bite good and sati [...]

      Review was originally posted at Book Lovers Inc. When I first heard about Wild & Steamy I new immediately that I had to read it. I loved Brook's and Crane's series and well I always wanted to try a Myles' novel because I heard that they are so much fun. Best chance to get all wanted in one book. How could I say no to that? The Blushing Bounder by Meljean BrookNewberry was already pretty intriguing in The Iron Duke and I was so looking forward to see his story told. We meet his wife, the shy [...]

      Overall, a wild & steamy anthologyThe Blushing Bounder - A Tale of the Iron Seas by Meljean Brook - 4 starsMeljean Brook's Iron Seas series is one of my favorite steampunk series. The author's world building is extensive and the story takes the reader to an alternate history of London, complete with airships, nanobots, steampunk contraptions galore, and strangely enhanced humans. This story focuses on Temperance and Edward Newberry, two Americans forced to move to London because of a public [...]

      Holy gods, what a mixed bag *this* compilation was. I'll give it 7/10, but that really doesn't cover the range of my reactions to the three separate stories that are really just connected because they're romances/chick-pr0n with a supernatural or fantasy twist.Firstly Vixen, by Jill Myles. Errrr yeah. The complex plot and characterisation of this instalment could best be summed up as "Young, sweet, one-tailed kitsune does two hot were-cats at once". The pr0n itself wasn't atrocious, but I had ki [...]

    20. Caramelia on said:

      All in all I liked the book quite a bit, but I don't think the stories fit together very well. The first story "The blushing Bounder" by Meljean Brook is nicely written, picturing a blushing (what a pun) romance between two well, you have to say ignorant (in as positive a way as possible) people, with a little sex right at the end. A story set in the world of the Iron Duke, written in the same style, very nice to read.This is directly followed by a story about a were-fox who would be totally n [...]

      Review to come later 4.5 stars.I loved, loved, loved this anthology. All three stories were awesome, but I especially liked the Carolyn Crane story, because I think it has a significant plot point in it for the Disillusionists. I'm so happy I read this :)Sort-of ReviewFirst in this anthology is the Iron Seas short, the Blushing Bounder, was a sweet love story that gave us some background information on Mina's co-worker, Constable Newberry. Newberry has an ailing wife, who doesn't seem to like hi [...]

    22. Katie_la_geek on said:

      Wild and Steamy is an anthology made up of three stories. The Blushing Bounder by Meljean Brook, Vixen by Jill Myles and Kitten – Tiger and the Monk by Carolyn Crane.In my opinion Meljean Brook is the queen of steampunk, nobody does it quite as well as she does and The Blushing Bounder is no exception. The steampunk element was amazing and complimented by a lovely romance, good storyline and likeable characters. It is an awesome novella that fits in well with the rest of the Iron Seas series.

      This is a pretty varied collection of shorts not only in genre but in steam level (of the sensual variety) as well"The Blushing Bounder" by MelJean Brook - is set before Iron Duke and stars Mina's assistant the charming honorable and bashful Constable Newberry and his Missus. I am a big fan of Brook's amazing Iron Seas steampunk world so I was delighted to get an little connected short to hold me over until Steel Heart hits the shelves. "Vixen" by Jill Myles - not connected to her Succubus serie [...]

    24. Keertana on said:

      It's always a challenge to write a novella about characters we have never been previously introduced to. In the past two novellas I've read from Brook, she has used these miniature snippets to further enhance her already developed characters. In this novella, though, she introduces us to Newberry - the constable we met in The Iron Duke - and his wife. Newberry's marriage, when this story begins, is a mess. Not only is his wife sick and fearful of the nano agents that may cure her, but she believ [...]

      It's always hard to rate an anthology as the different stories are sometimes of differing quality. I enjoyed all the stories in this one but some more than others.I loved the Meljean Brook Iron Seas story (The Blushing Bounder). My only complaint with this tale of Constable Newberry and his wife, Temperance is I wanted it to be longer. It's still a fully realized, beautifully sweet romance. I liked Constable Newberry in The Iron Duke but I love him even more now. He's such a sweet and honorable [...]

    26. Cecilia on said:

      I enjoyed the first story, by Meljean Brook, well enough, but it was really short and simple, and I would have liked a little more development. 3 starsI DNF'd the other two. The Myles story because the characters were so stock/stereotypish and the situation a weak set up for a menage. Menage stories are not something I actively seek but I've read a few, and I know that they can be done persuasively. This was not one of those. It was basically a fantasy set up of two different two-dimensional lov [...]

      The Blushing Bounder: Oh, Newberry! Such a sweet, lug of a guy. And here we get to see him muck up his personal life in a rather spectacular fashion. I really love the Iron Seas world and I adore how Meljean Brook brings the lovable constable to life. As a plus, we get some of Mina's uncensored observations and see how Newberry steps up as Mina's protector. Wonderful!Vixen: Holy hot threesome, Batman! This little gem hit the spot as far as sexy threesomes go. It had the perfect slow buildup and [...]

      The Blushing Bounder (Brook) 3.5 Stars I liked this short because I like Newberry, but as the beginning I really hated his wife. You don't get to see much of The Inspector, but his reactions to her speaking so frankly are funny.Vixen (Myles) 2.5 Stars This one was alright, but I was definitely sort of detached. A fox shifter is being guarded by two male cat shifters and apparently foxes have issues with monogamy. They save her and bed her and it wan't bad, but I'm not running out to find a serie [...]

      Loved all three stories. I had never read Carolyn Crane before and this short story has sparked my interest in her Disillusionists trilogy.Meljean Brook's story was sweet and was nice to see the start of the partnership between Newberry and Mina. Jill Myles was the steamiest of the stories and was less urban fantasy (unlike the other two) and more paranormal romance.Worth the wait and a good introduction to authors you may not have read yet, but want to check out what their writing is like.

      Only read Meljean Brook, The Blushing Bounder.I've been curious about this series since a friend mentioned it to me. And i have to thank her for it :)I guess i'm still a newbie at the steampunk genre, but i'll have to say that so far it hasn't let me down. "The Blushing Bounder" was another example of imagination at its best. And of how stories, can still surprise me.All in all, an engaging read that left me curious about the "Iron Duke".
