The Iron Duke -  Meljean Brook

Well... hell!

 

Don't be fool by the titty man on the cover this book has a deep plot, really good world building, deep characters and one heck of a story.

There was a lot of this...

 

 

And THIS...

(you know, investigative talk and chemistry between two characters)

 

And then a lot of this as well...

 

(Yes, chemistry like Scarlet O'Hara and Rhett Butler!)

 

And then moments where you feel "Oh, my gosh, THAT happened and you survived it?"

 

And the ending was like this...

 

Although, I must say that the author crammed a bit too much into 400 pages and there should have been at least a 100 pages more but I still enjoyed it more than I ever though I would.
