Because you can't judge a book by its cover

Melody Mackay is an inventor for the Order of the Round Table, while a role not traditionally held by women, Melody isn’t about to let gender stereotypes stop her from fulfilling her calling. But in Dragons and Dirigibles by Cindy Spencer Pape, Melody crash lands on the front lawn of Victor, Earl of Blackwell, too bad she finds herself attracted to the very conservative, very appealing Victor.

Victor is struggling to keep things together at Black Heath, unexpectedly inheriting the title of Earl when his brother dies and becoming guardian to his young niece, Victor doesn’t have time for things like sexy inventors. When things go awry and Victor needs Melody’s help, will they be able to move passed their stubbornly held ideals to allow for love to grow between them.

Dragons & Dirigibles is another fun addition to the Gaslight Chronicles. I didn’t see the twist at the end coming (don’t worry, I won’t spoil it for you) but I loved the various steampunk contraptions used by the characters, especially the submarine at the end of the story. Melody was another great female character from Spencer Pape and fans of Wink will enjoy Melody’s energy and attitude. Once again, I felt like the story was a little short (and maybe a little rushed on how quickly Melody’s health recovered from her horrible crash) but the action was entertaining and the romance delightful.

Why Ratings?
It is true you can't judge a book by its cover, you also can't judge a book's graphic content by its cover. NovelReaction's goal is to provide readers with a graphic content so they can make an informed decision regarding the books they want to read. (Also, to have a great place for people to discuss books.) So sit back, pull up a beverage, and read on!
