Nights of Steel
by Nico Rosso 
The Ether Chronicles, Book 4
Published by: Avon Impulse
Release Date: December 4, 2012

ISBN: 978-0062201119

“Wild” West takes on a whole new meaning in Rosso’s version of America: airships roam the skies, and genetically engineered Man O’ Wars wreak havoc—and that’s nothing compared to the rising tension between bounty hunters Anna Blue and Jack Hawkins. This book is all about action—of every kind—and between the cool-as-heck characters, the surreal steampunk landscape, and the electrifying chemistry between the two protagonists, Nights of Steel is a must-read for fans of romance with an action edge!

Bounty hunter Anna Blue always finds her fugitive. But her latest mission is filled with mystery-a high price for an eccentric inventor. And her biggest rival, Jack Hawkins-a startlingly handsome, entirely unsettling man whose abilities match her own– is hunting the same bounty. Neither will back down.

When a rogue Man O’ War flies his airship into the California skies, guns blazing, Anna and Jack are forced to team up or die. But it isn’t the danger that has them ready to flare like gunpowder. They’ve circled each other for years as competitors only. Fighters and outsiders, they never thought they’d find a kindred soul. But as hot passion, and raw need draw them together, can they survive this mission long enough to track the most elusive fugitives…their hearts?

My Review: 

With just the right amount of action and the hint of a hidden or forbidden romance, Nico Rosso takes us into the world he's created in Nights of Steel, the fourth book in The Ether Chronicles.  With likable protagonists, witty dialogue and the right touch of sexual chemistry, I found myself a willing captive of Mr. Rosso's vision of the cowboy West full of steampunk gadgets.  Although a novice to this series, I was able to enjoy this installment on it's own and I now look forward to reading this series from the start.

Known as the two best bounty hunters in the west, Annie Blue and Jack Hawkins have circled each other's adventures for years.  A lonely life by definition, both are content with their lives and happy they've never been in pursuit of the same man.  All of that changes when a mysterious bounty suddenly comes up.  Finding themselves rivals, and equally matched, neither one wants to give up or really harm the other.  I enjoyed the verbal sparring which takes place between both characters, Mr. Rosso makes it clear they're attracted to each other but they both have secrets and are slow to trust.  Watching them work out their own dance towards love is lots of fun.

When a new and dangerous rival suddenly turns up, both Annie and Jack find themselves truly challenged for the first time.  While they both enjoy the challenge, becoming allies wasn't really a part of their plan, but it soon becomes their only choice.  Learning to trust each other will suddenly become the hardest thing they'll have to endure.

Will Annie and Jack hunt for bounty lead to something they'll both learn to treasure more?  And who is really behind the mysterious bounty?  You'll have to read Nights of Steel to find out.  I enjoyed it and I think you will too.

My Rating:  4 out of 5 Stars
