PRAISE FOR THE NOVELS OF THE IRON SEAS

Riveted
“Meljean Brook delivers a stellar love story that is slow-burning but utterly romantic and satisfying. . . . Readers who are searching for that perfect steampunk romance will be thrilled. . . . Fascinating worlds, a misunderstood villain, and of course, a passionate love story.”

Fresh Fiction

Riveted
 is another fantastic addition to Meljean Brook’s delightful romantic steampunk series. I recommend this to any reader who enjoys strong, unique protagonists, witty dialog, delish romances, and engaging adventure.”

Smexy Books
“As a romance, 
Riveted
 is refreshing and well written, touching on complicated themes with sensitivity and realism. As a steampunk world, this story is five stars across the board. I can’t get enough of exploring the Iron Seas; every glimpse of this alternate history leaves me fascinated and hungry for more.”

All Things Urban Fantasy

Riveted
 is a wonderfully creative book with a surprisingly sweet romance at its heart. Whether you like steampunk, romance, or both, don’t miss out on reading David and Annika’s story!”

Joyfully Reviewed
“In between the fantastic elements and fabulous action, Brook also weaves in themes of the dangers of prejudice and judgment. And when it comes to heroes, there’s no one more thoughtful or noble than David! A rip-roaring and wonderful addition to Brook’s amazing Iron Seas series.”

Heart of Steel
“Rising star Brook has created two completely mesmerizing characters whose journeys in this gritty and treacherous world make for heart-stopping fun!”

RT Book Reviews 
(top pick)

Heart of Steel
 is an exciting and stimulating read. Fast-paced, with plenty of humor and gripping action that grabs you at page one. While you don’t lose any of the swashbuckling high seas, er, sky adventures nor Ms. Brook’s superb world building, whose depth and heart makes this series, 
Heart of Steel
 isn’t as emotionally dark as the first in the series—
The Iron Duke
. Which is perfect because these characters would never have survived that sort of story line. It’s not often you can find a couple who complement each other as well as these two do. Yasmeen and Archimedes are a fantastic couple whose chemistry and dynamics are off the charts. Their steamy sexual games last well towards the end and provide us with plenty of entertainment.”

Smexy Books
“Yasmeen and Archimedes were a fantastic hero and heroine and a solid couple. I haven’t read many steampunk novels, but if the writing is half as good as it is in this series in other books in the genre, I really need to check out more.”

Paranormal Haven
“The world that Ms. Brook has created with this series is incredibly fascinating, with a wonderfully intricate alternate history that adds such depth to the story. Archimedes is one of my absolute favorite heroes, and he and Yasmeen were truly perfect for each other. Recommended for fans of incredible steampunk, of adventuresome heroes with a truly romantic nature, and of kick-ass heroines who keep their awesomeness long after their hearts are engaged.”

The Romanceaholic
“A straight-up adventure. Daring escapes, explosions, zombies, treasure hunting, and one man’s quest to fall in love with the woman with a heart of steel . . . 
Heart of Steel
 has characters worthy of adoration, a gripping adventure, and a romance to cheer for.”

Vampire Book Club
The Iron Duke
“I loved it! As far as I’m concerned, with 
The Iron Duke
, Meljean Brook has brilliantly defined the new genre of steampunk romance. From now on, everyone will compare other writers in the genre to her.”
