A Clockwork Christmas
By JK Coi, PG Forte, Stacy Gail, Jenny Schwartz

Carina Press, $9.99

Publisher's synopsis:  Changed forever after tragedy, a woman must draw strength from her husband's love. A man learns that love isn't always what you expect. A thief steals the heart of a vengeful professor. And an American inventor finds love Down Under. Enjoy Victorian Christmas with a clockwork twist in these four steampunk novellas.

Anthology includes:
Crime Wave in a Corset by Stacy Gail
          This Winter Heart by PG Forte
Wanted: One Scoundrel by Jenny Schwartz
Far From Broken by JK Coi

I'll confess. I love "steampunk" and Christmas themed romances. So you'd think I'd be predisposed to love these four stories. But instead I tend to hold the genres I like to a higher standard. And this one passed the test!!!  yippee  

All of these novellas are stand alone stories and each one kept me engaged through the read. Riveted is a better word. 

I think, of the four, Crime Wave in a Corset by Stacy Gail, is my very favorite! A couple of my favorite elements are there, airship travel and a bit of suspense coming from  mysterious woman thief who nabs a Faberge egg.  Perfect reading!

I enjoyed  This Winter Heart by PG Forte, Wanted: One Scoundrel by Jenny Schwartz and Far From Broken by JK Coi as well. 

They are all well written, seamlessly plotted and have really fun characters!!  Romance, mysterious goings on and far away places. Gotta love them all!

I give the anthology a big fat 4 out of 5 stars!
