A life of military duty has left Dankyo unprepared for
He’s never met a woman quite like this. She’s smart and beautiful, and she’s
something that he’s finding almost irresistible—despite the way she fights
against masquerading as his slave, she’s submissive right down to the bottom of
her soul. And that’s bringing out every dominant instinct in his body.
But even as he realizes she’s captured his heart, the city explodes into madness. Surviving seems impossible. Can love and a Dom who will never give up overcome sheer bloody-minded evil?
“Scary sexiness, thy name is Dankyo.” -- Sofia
Cari brings us back to the amazing steampunk world filled with sexy intrigue, even more intriguing men, ever present dangers and characters that always leave you with a sense of a new member joining the family.
I cannot put into words how much I absolutely loved Steel Dominance! Really some fan girl squeals need to be heard gasps of awe and overall excitement to cover how much I loved Steel Dominance.
As always Cari’s characters were very well written. Dankyo and Sofia capture your attention and as we delve deeper into the plot and world they truly come alive.
Dankyo, who we first meet in Iron Dominance,exceeded all of my expectations of him that was drawn from his previous roles in this series. He was pure male—determination, dominance, extremely protective to those he pledged himself, and a whole bunch of alpha-male-sexy.
Sofia is out looking to prove herself, to be the one who solves the ancient puzzle of the Clockwork Warrior. It will not only, she hopes, stick it to her father but guarantee her career as well. To get to the Clockwork Warrior, though, she must go into
as a slave and Dankyo as her owner. Sofia had no intentions of doing anything besides
pretending but Dankyo brings out all of her secret submissive desires. Byzantium
The sex scenes while scorching hot and kinky were at times beautiful. When Dankyo took Sofia and though doubtful at first and not really understanding the way she wants to give in to him, Sofia gives herself so freely to him. The emotion, the rightness of it—it was lovely to see her trust for him grow and form, and that made those hot, kinky sex scenes come to life in ways that made them beautiful.
Characters from past books pop in on the story at points, while they do not stay long it is enough to get a sense of how they are doing now which I found wonderful. I always love it when characters from past books pop up; it seems to solidify the world they live in to me.
Overall Steel Dominance is a wonderful addition to the Steamwork Chronicles and a must read for anyone looking for a great BDSM romance read. While this book could be read stand alone I think, I would recommend reading book one and two in this series.
Please tell me there is going to be another book!
