“… a sweet and saucy romance that kept a smile on my face.” ~ Under the Covers
A terrifying experience has Ivy Blacksmith desperate to leave England. But with only the clothes on her back and her skills as a blacksmith she has nothing much to offer. Mad Machen cannot believe Ivy Blacksmith, the woman he had been planning to court has come to him for help…offering him the only thing she has; herself, her virginity, but before he can reassure her he was not a beast planning on raping her, she disappears. Two years later, he finally manages to track her down….
Another novella in the Iron Seas series by Meljean Brooks. I love all the novellas that seem to accompany this series, either expanding on secondary characters lives or diving back into the couples and main characters we know. It all comes together to enrich the world that Brook has created.
It also gives us another fantastic novella, with a sweet and saucy romance that kept a smile on my face. This was set before The Iron Duke and would be easy to read as a standalone, so even if you aren’t looking to start a new series, this is a great one to get a romance fix. Of course, it will leave you wanting more, so it may be the start of a new series after all!
A great read, which gets me excited to read my next Meljean Brook novel.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
