(Information from Cindy Spencer Pape's site)


Type: Steampunk Romance

Book One: Steam and Sorcery:

Sir Merrick Hadrian hunts monsters, both human and supernatural. A Knight of the Order of the Round Table, his use of magick and the technologies of steam power have made him both respected and feared. But his considerable skills are useless in the face of his greatest challenge, guardianship of five unusual children. At a loss, Merrick enlists the aid of a governess. Miss Caroline Bristol is reluctant to work for a bachelor but she needs a position, and these former street children touch her heart. While she tends to break any mechanical device she touches, it never occurs to her that she might be something more than human. All she knows is that Merrick is the most dangerously attractive man she’s ever met—and out of reach for a mere governess. When conspiracy threatens to blur the distinction between humans and monsters, Caroline and Merrick must join forces, and the fate of humanity hinges upon their combined skills of steam and sorcery…

Book Two: Photographs and Phantoms:


As a member of the Order of the Round Table, Kendall Lake is overqualified to be investigating strange
phenomena at a seaside photography studio. But since the photographer is related to the Order’s most powerful sorcerer, Kendall reluctantly boards a dirigible to Brighton. Amy Deland is haunted by a shadow that appears in some of her recent portraits. In each case, the subject died within days of the sitting. Does she have her grandmother’s gift of foresight, or has she somehow caused the deaths?
As Kendall and Amy search for answers, their investigation draws them together in a most improper way. But  it seems the evil presence in the studio is determined to keep them apart…

Book Three: Kilts and Kracken: 

Magnus, Baron Findlay, longs to bring the wonders of the steam age to his remote island home, but his
hands are full fighting the vicious kraken ravaging the coast. When he’s swept to sea during battle and
washes up on the shore of an isle in the Hebrides, he is near death. Struggling to establish herself as one of
the first female physicians in Edinburgh, Dr. Geneva MacKay is annoyed when The Order of the Round
Table sends her north to care for an injured highlander. To heal him, Geneva escorts the handsome warrior
home, just in time to defend the villagers from another onslaught. As the attacks escalate and they work
together to fight off the threat, neither Geneva nor Magnus can resist the overwhelming attraction
between them. But as their relationship deepens, a new threat arises from within the village itself…

Book Four:  Moonlight & Mechanicals:

Due out October 22, 2012
 Wink Hadrian must decide between the werewolf she loves and the Knight who loves her...
oh, and save England while she's at it.
