Cogs and Kismet meet in five Steampunk stories of forbidden love so strong it transcends space and time— bringing together star-crossed lovers from regency France to ancient Egypt to Victorian London, to the depths of space, and even the afterlife.

The Brass Octopus

Can a prim librarian make a rogue smile...Can a lovable rogue make a librarian wild?

Librarian, Piety Plunkett is happy alone with her books, until transformed by a beautifying machine. Blake enjoys the favors of women but only Piety consumes his mind night and day. If anyone discovers what they are doing in the library after closing time, Piety's reputation will be ruined. Is that Blake' plan?

As Timeless As Stone

Can love transcend time with the aid of robots and magic?

Seshat, an ancient Egyptian Priestess is newly awakened in 19th century Paris, after centuries as a stone statue. Though enchanted by the wondrous inventions of steam-servants and a steam-carriage, she is enthralled by the inventor, Ricard. He ignites her sensual desires and in a steamy night of carnal magic, Seshat transforms Ricard's life forever. But how far will he go to secure her happiness? Is Ricard's love for Seshat powerful enough to transcend time?

As Timeless As Magic

Magic, Mayhem, and a Time Machine…Lead to Love.

Heru, an ancient Egyptian, tinkers with a time machine, which sweeps him through the ages to nineteenth century London. In a bell skirt, Felicity shamelessly straddles her motorized steam bicycle and rumbles down the streets of London until a tall, dark, and half-naked bystander captures her attention. And, she crashes into a brick wall. Heru rushes to the aid of the woman riding the noisy brass-horse. Once he lifts her into his arms, he doesn't want to ever let her go. However, Felicity's father will stop at nothing to steal the time machine. Can Heru keep Felicity and the time machine safe from the man's black-hearted machinations?

Starry Conquest

Forbidden spans the universe.

Ana, a milkmaid disguised as a rich widow, boards a rocket to be blasted out of a huge cannon. Her destination is planet X, to start a new life. Sparks fly when Ana finds Ramon, the only man she ever loved and heir of the estate she worked on, is flying to Planet X as well. As the Spanish governor of Planet X searches for gold, the treasure Ramon seeks is Ana. His conquest is challenging. Though he swears to protect and love her, as a noble he cannot marry a peasant. Ana cannot deny her desire for Ramon but she will not be his mistress. Will Ramon's conquest of her heart succeed or will Ana make a life alone, amid the wonders of Planet X?
