Steampunk Romance Review: My Lady Quicksilver by Bec McMaster

My Lady Quicksilver by Bec McMaster (London Steampunk #3)

Egalley thanks to Sourcebooks Casablanca

Synopsis from Goodreads
Determined to destroy the Echelon she despises, Rosalind Fairchild is on seemingly easy mission. Get in. Uncover the secrets of her brother's disappearance. And get out.

In order to infiltrate the Nighthawks and find their leader, Sir Jasper Lynch, Rosalind will pose as their secretary. But she doesn't count on Lynch being such a dangerously charismatic man, challenging her at every turn, forcing her to re-evaluate everything she knows about the enemy.

He could be her most dangerous nemesis—or the ally she never dreamed existed.

I absolutely loved this one, peeps! It was everything I adore in a steampunk romance: excitement, passion, desperation, strong characters, fighting, gadgetry and mysterious masked vigilantes. It was simply delicious!

Rosalind Fairchild is a masked underground leader Mercury who is desperately trying to find her missing younger brother, Jeremy. As her last resort she decides to infiltrate infamous Nighthawks, whose leader, Lynch is tasked by the prince regent to find Mercury suspected in recent Blue Bloods bombing.

At night Rosa is a cocky, sharp and seductive Mercury who is taunting Lynch in a game of a very dangerous chase. At day she is his warm and flirtatious secretary, helping him investigate a string of recent murders among the Echelon.

Both Lynch and Rosa get so emotionally entangled with each other that at some point her deceit can't continue anymore, especially when she discovers a much larger conspiracy which would endanger everything she fought for. What she doesn't know however is that time is running out for Lynch the longer it takes for Nighthawks to catch Mercury...

Let me tell you, my dear readers, that Lynch - Rosa partnership no matter what they do is amazing. They are such strong, larger than life characters, that their passionate encounters, their thoughts, fights and their sharp dialogues can't help but make you fall in love with them.

It's also one of those epic love stories against all odds with an absolutely awesome ending. So, read the whole series. This is steampunk romance at its best and much recommended.

Ну совершенно прекрасно написано, дамы и господа. Как обычно, Бек МакМастер удалось совместить два жанра, что я обожаю - стимпанк и исторический роман.

Розалинд Фэйрчайлд - лидер подпольного сопротивления Меркьюри пытается найти младшего брата Джереми, исчезнувшего после неудачной попытки взорвать аристократов Эшелона в конце прошлой книги. В отчаянии она решает инфильтровать Найтхоуков (что-то типа полиции), нанимаясь секретаршей к их лидеру, Линчу.

По ночам Розалинд  танственная, дерзкая, опасная и сексапильная замаскированная Меркьюри, которую пытается поймать Линч по приказу принца-регента. А днём она его милая, флиртующая секретарша, сопровождающая Линча в его расследовании серий безумных убийств, совершаемых различными членами Эшелона.

Вскоре тандем Линч-Роза настолько запутывается во влечении друг к другу, особенно Линч, который разрывается между Меркьюри и Розой, чувствуя себя безумно виноватым, так как он не может выбрать ту или иную женщину, что игра Розы начинает рассыпаться как карточный домик. Только вот Розалинд не подозревает, что если Линч выберет её и не преподнесёт Меркьюри на блюдечке принцу-регенту, то тот казнит его вместо знаменитой преступницы...

Оба и Линч и Роза - сильные характеры, от взаимоотношений которых просто захватывает дух, чтобы они не делали - дрались, занимались любовью, обменивались шутками, флиртовали или расследовали преступления вместе.

 Концовка вообще совершенно феноменальная в стиле грандиозной романтической истории! В общем, очень советую всю серию, ибо славно написано.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
