She dreams of joining the scientific elite. He’s desperate to save his business and his sister. Together, they may hold the turnkey to adventure…


Terminus, 1871. Fiona Telfair won’t give up her gears and gadgets for the ball and chain of marriage. But her future as a tinkerer comes under attack when nutcracker automatons raid the trade hall masquerade party and kidnap her fellow inventors. With her brilliant engineer father among those taken, Fiona’s only hope of rescuing him lies with the captivating rail baron who rescued her from the fray.


Devon Meriweather can only keep his train empire on track if he marries into an influential family. And he also needs the connections to make sure his chronically ill sibling can marry well. So no matter how engaging and beautiful the firmly working-class Fiona may be, he knows she’ll only ever be a partner in solving crimes.


As they work closely hunting for clues to the strange aether-powered apparatus and magical mice, the intrepid duo can’t deny their budding feelings. But neither can afford a distracting courtship with the growing threat of the nutcrackers and their deadly chompers.


Can Fiona and Devon expose the menacing mastermind behind the machines and make their passion run like clockwork?


Mission: Nutcracker is the second book in the charming Inspector Davidson Mysteries steampunk romance series. If you like plucky heroines, nineteenth-century mystique, and unusual Christmas fairytale retellings, then you’ll love Cecilia Dominic’s yuletide triumph.

A Darker Shade of Magic, from #1 New York Times bestselling author V.E. Schwab

Kell is one of the last Antari—magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black.

Kell was raised in Arnes—Red London—and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador, traveling between the frequent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of George III in the dullest of Londons, the one without any magic left to see.

Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see. It's a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.

After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.

Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, they'll first need to stay alive.

"A Darker Shade of Magic has all the hallmarks of a classic work of fantasy. Schwab has given us a gem of a tale...This is a book to treasure."—Deborah Harkeness, New York Times bestselling author of the All Souls trilogy

Everyone wears a mask. But the deadliest secrets hide in plain sight.


Marie St. Jean’s supreme acting talent comes with a price: Every spellbinding performance extracts a piece of her soul. When she reluctantly steps into a role abandoned by another leading lady, she encounters the ghostly spirit that caused the other woman to flee in terror. And who promises to fix Marie’s affliction – for a price.


Marie’s other problem – her attraction to alluring violinist, Johann Bledsoe, a temptation she dares not explore. However, with the Prussians surrounding Paris, she is well and truly trapped.


Johann left disgrace and his gambling debt behind in England, but a murder outside the Théâtre Bohème makes him fear he’s been exposed. He’d love nothing more than to claim Marie as his own, but after the siege is over, his past will catch up to him again.


Under the baleful eye of steam-powered ravens, more murders drive Marie and Johann closer to the truth of what really lurks below the stage, and what dangers hang over their heads. Their only hope could lie in exposing their darkest secrets—and surrendering to the Eros Element in a way that could push them irretrievably close to the edge of madness.


Clockwork Phantom is the second book in the Aether Psychics, a thrilling steampunk series with puzzling mysteries and hints of magic. If you like historical mysteries with a scientific – or is it supernatural? – twist, then you'll love Cecilia Dominic's Aether Psychics series.


Note: Clockwork Phantom can be read on its own or as part of the Aether Psychics series. It was originally titled Light Fantastique.
