KEEP CALM AND STEAMPUNK ON
The whole of Victorian London knows there is something not quite right about the Lady Verity Hart. She may be the daughter of an MP and the sister of famed inventor Lord David Hart, but she is a spinster whose own father threatens to send her to the madhouse every fortnight. Because Society is correct-Verity Hart is no lady. If they suspected how quick with a quip she is, let alone the majority of her brother’s ingenious machines were her design, the sale of fainting couches would double.
Verity requires one herself when her beloved brother is kidnapped by vampyres in the dead of night. With the aid of an aggravating, rude American bounty hunter with a secret of his own, Verity takes to land, sea, and even air to rescue the only person who could ever love and truly accept her. Or is he?
Part Four of Five Includes:
Chapter Eleven- Irish Hospitality
Chapter Twelve- In A Den of Wolves
Verity Hart Vs The Vampyres: Part Four was definitely interesting as Verity and Jamie close closer and we get to meet Jamie’s werewolf relatives which causes all kinds of intrigue and trouble. This part has only two chapters but they’re pretty long so it’s not like it’s too short or anything. It’s just right.
In the first chapter not a whole lot happens except that Verity wants Jamie’s relatives to help him. He, of course, is not up to this idea at all but he lets her talk him into it anyway. I just think it’s adorable because I can totally see how Jamie just can’t say no to her. There’s more sexual tension and I’m glad Verity knows what she wants; him. If only Jamie saw it, too.
The second chapter was all about Verity and Jamie getting to the Roarke’s. They actually live in a castle. Pretty cool. We get to meet a bunch of werewolves, most are Jamie’s family. His grandmother is pretty cool lady so far. His uncle, however, is a total creep.
But anyway, all in all, this part wasn’t the best (again) but also not the worst. It was nice meeting Jamie’s family and how they live as a pack. It also gave us some more insight on Jamie’s parents. So yeah it was a pretty nice part. There’s only two more chapters to come in the next and final part. I can’t wait for them to go kick some vampyres butts and save David!
