Holy Steampunk Hotness!!

I enjoyed this book a lot, I mean whats not to love. Victoriana, Steampowered goodness, women in corsets, all great things in my book!

Pros:
Sexyness and lots of it.

Not quite on par with the accepted definition of Steampunk

somewhat useful review
Are you a fan of steampunk? Do you love good erotica? Then this is the book for you!

Yet another gem from Celis Press and published this year. This new book is pretty good although not everyone may like this one. Not every one will enjoy the victorian/quasi steampunk theme of the stories. I very much enjoyed it however, and the friend I passed the book on to is loving it as well. I really enjoyed the first story "Human Powered" by Teresa Noelle Roberts. There are about 14 stories in this Steamy collection.

The list of stories is as follows:
Human Powered – Theresa Noelle Roberts
The Servant Question – Janine Ashbless
Sleight of Hand – Renee Michaels
Mutiny on the Danika Blue – Poe Von Page
Deviant Devices – Kannan Feng
The Perfect Girl – Jay Lawrence
Dr. Mullaley’s Cure – Delilah Devlin
Her Own Devices – Lisabet Sarai
Lair of the Red Countess – Kathleen Bradean
Infernal Machine – Elias A. St. James
Dr. Watson Makes a House Call – Essomeh Teepee
The Treatment – D. L. King
Lucifer Einstein and the Curious Case of the Carnal Contraption – Tracey Shellito
The Succubus – Elizabeth Schechter


The cover of the book has a great picture of a Steampunky chick with goggles, awesome font and if it hadn't said erotica on it, it would have been a fairly discreet book. I just enjoyed this book as a whole, I read it from cover to cover instead of my usual pick and choose. I can't wait to share it with more of my friends, although I may read it yet again before handing it back out :) I'm gonna have to start running a erotica library with all the books my friends are borrowing and reading (and not returning!)
Follow-up commentary
It's still a good read, that's still in my collection. I have picked this book back up a couple of times to read some of the stories out of it.
