Steamlust is romantic erotica that reflects the excitement, fantasy and rebellion of steampunk. Not sure what steampunk is? Think Victorian elegance and aesthetics meets futuristic invention and exploration. The genre of steampunk itself has transcended the Victorian (or Edwardian) eras — in Kristina Wright's inventive anthology, it can be any time period, real or imagined, that blends elements of science, history, fantasy and technology. Until Steamlust, the genre had been missing romantic relationships and erotic encounters. Steampunk erotic romance is shiny brass and crushed velvet; mechanical inventions and romantic conventions; sexual fantasy and kinky fetish. It's steam powered sexy romance!
Editrix extraordinaire Kristina Wright creates a lush and fantastical world of women-centered stories and romantic scenarios, first for steampunk fiction. Fetishizing the wardrobe, language, fantasy and rituals of steampunk, Steamlust includes alternate histories, second worlds, time travel and contemporary settings.

Bedded Bliss "Whether you're looking for ideas to spice up your marriage or you're simply a fan of well-written and imaginative erotica, this book turns up the heat." —Publishers Weekly "This book presents valuable advice for couples yearning to maintain magic in their marriages." —ForeWord Reviews "All I can say to that is; thank goodness for Bedded Bliss! This book gives all of us monogamous people total rights to be publicly braggadocios once again! It acknowledges (with refreshing intelligence) that monogamy in not only admirable, it is HOT!" —Rose Caraway, host of the Kiss Me Quicks podcast "This book is important. It fills a gap not only on the bookshelves, but in our discussions about relationships and how intimacy changes across our life spans. This is a key guide to long-term couples who’ve weathered storms together, who’ve built their lives together, who’ve loved and lusted together and intend to for the rest of their lives." —Geeky Nymph "This celebration of long-term, committed relationships gathers real-life experiences, practical advice, a dash of humour, and a lot of sexy erotica to show couples how to build attraction and love throughout a relationship." —Good for Her
