As a rabid fan of this series, I loved this book but I also believe fans of the non-rabid variety would also enjoy it. It has enough adventure to keep it interesting and enough sexy times to keep it exciting. ” ~ Under the Covers

Mina has now been married to the Iron Duke for eight months, eight of the happiest months of her life. But, each day she can see the stress and worry on his face when she leaves to work and all the potential dangers that entails. Especially as their is a new murderer in town, with strange and mysterious means of killing his victims and Mina and Newberry are on the case.

This novella takes place after the events of The Iron Duke allowing us a glimpse in to the married live of Mina and Rhys, the aforementioned Duke and allows us not only to see how they are getting along, but also to follow Mina once again as she works a case. As a rabid fan of this series, I loved this book but I also believe fans of the non-rabid variety would also enjoy it. It has enough adventure to keep it interesting and enough sexy times to keep it exciting.

What I liked most was seeing Rhys open up more, we get to see a bit more of the man behind the Iron Duke facade as he becomes more comfortable with his emotions, not only his love for Mina, but for their adopted daughter Anna and his best friend Scarsdale. All of this gave the book sweet edge, which had me sighing into my cuppa as I read.

A great addition to the Iron Seas series but it is worth reading at least The Iron Duke, before you read this to give you a better understanding of the characters and the world. I now can’t wait to continue on with the series and see what Meljean Brook has in store next.

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?

Thank you for the review and reading order. I have a couple of these on my wish list. Not to thrilled that book 4 is a serial, though.


Thanks for another great review of this series Suzanne
