This book was just amazing. We had gadgets and robots, enemies become lovers, intrigue, and an almost full scale war on the streets of London. I think that covers so many different types of books I like that I just couldn't help but fall in love with this one. Mina and Leo are quite the pair. From the very beginning you can see the interest between the two, but their families aren't fond of each other - so hands off!! In fact, Mina would love to see Leo's family fall. But that all gets pushed aside with the crazy prince consort goes - well - crazy.
Enemies. Allies. Lovers.
When her beloved father was assassinated, Lady Aramina swore revenge. The man responsible is well beyond her grasp, but his dangerously seductive heir, Leo Barrons, is fair game. When Mina obtains evidence proving that Leo is illegitimate, she has the means to destroy both the killer and his son, a man who troubles her heart and tempts her body.
A woman of mystery, Mina's long driven Leo crazy with glimpses of a fiery passion that lurks beneath her icy veneer. He knows she's hiding something, and he's determined to unravel her layer by silken layer. He just doesn't expect the beautiful liar to be the key to overthrowing the corrupt prince consort… or to saving his own carefully walled-off heart.
Then Mina and Leo are forced to work together and realize that there's nothing wrong with changing your mind and opinion on someone. I love how they came together when they really needed to and their relationship just grew from there. I also loved that Mina was a mastermind behind a pretty devious plot - I love a devious woman.
There really wasn't much I didn't like about the story. This one was a big win all around.
