Beauty and Beastly: Steampunk Beauty and the Beast



In this tale as old as time, Isabelle Hawking must tinker a solution to a heartbreaking mystery.

When Isabelle Hawking and her papa set out from London on a sea voyage, Isabelle is thrilled. Visiting foreign courts, learning from master tinkerers, and studying mechanicals is her dream. And it doesn't hurt that the trip also offers Isabelle an escape from her overbearing and unwanted suitor, Gerard LeBoeuf.

But Isabelle never arrives. Swept up in a tempest, her ship is lost.

Isabelle survives the storm only to be shipwrecked on a seemingly-deserted island. The magical place, dotted with standing stones, faerie mounds, and a crumbling castle, hints of an ancient past. Isabelle may be an unwilling guest, but her arrival marks a new beginning for the beastly residents of this forgotten land.

See how NY Times bestselling author Melanie Karsak puts a steampunk spin on the classic Beauty and the Beast fairy tale.

Curiouser and Curiouser: Steampunk Alice in Wonderland


To save the Hatter, Alice must work with the one man she despises so much that she might still love him.


Alice thought she’d turned over a new leaf. No more working for Jabberwocky. No more making deals with the ruthless Queen of Hearts. No more hanging around The Mushroom with tinkers, tarts, scoundrels, and thieves in London's criminal underbelly. But she’d been bonkers to dream.

Hatter’s reckless behavior leads Alice back to the one person she never wanted to see again, Caterpillar. Pulled into Caterpillar's mad schemes, Alice must steal a very big diamond from a very royal lady. The heist is no problem for this Bandersnatch. But protecting her heart from the man she once loved? Impossible.

Sometimes love is mad.


Curiouser and Curiouser is now available in ebook format exclusively in the Dominion Rising box set.

Ice and Embers: Steampunk Snow Queen




It takes more than an inferno to thaw a frozen heart.

Actress Elyse McKenna only wants to perform in Shakespearean dramas—not live in one.

With the 1814 London Frost Fair in full swing, Elyse and her troupe at the Ice House Theatre find themselves at the heart of the excitement on the frozen Thames. While the Ice House Theatre’s production of A Midwinter Night’s Dream thrills the London crowd, Elyse’s backstage life begins to take on a distinctly Shakespearean turn. 

When she fell in love with Lord John Waldegrave, she was prepared to keep their liaison secret. But she wasn’t ready for her newfound love to rock her relationship with her dearest friend, Doctor Kai Murray. Everything Elyse thought she knew about her feelings for her old friend gets flipped upside down when an exotic ship captain, whose ship is frozen in the Thames, turns her attention to Kai.

If Elyse hopes to escape the Thames with her heart intact, she must find a way to discover the truth about the captain, Kai, John, and her own feelings—before it’s too late.

Ice and Embers is a retelling of the classic Snow Queen fairy tale set in Regency London.
