 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.



About Meljean Brook

Meljean was raised in the middle of the woods, and hid under her blankets at night with fairy tales, comic books, and romances. She left the forest and went on a misguided tour through the world of accounting before focusing on her first loves, reading and writing–and she realized that monsters, superheroes, and happily-ever-afters are easily found between the covers, as well as under them, so she set out to make her own.

Meljean lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?
