Waiting on Wednesday [78] - The Girl in the Steel Corset


She thought there was something wrong with her. She was right.
Finley Jayne has known for quite some time that she isn’t ‘normal,’ but when she beats up the son of her employer and is forced to flee, she stumbles into a world where there are bigger freaks than her. They take her in, treat her like family and demand her trust. How can Finley trust them when she can’t trust herself? And why is she drawn to the powerful Griffin as well as the dangerous Jack? She has to get herself under control before she gets into trouble she can’t get out of.

Griffin King is one of the most powerful men in Britain but he couldn’t save his best friend from almost dying. He is determined to save Finley and help her become the person he knows she can be, but there’s evil afoot in London. Machines have attacked humans under the orders of a nefarious criminal called The Machinist. He has sworn to protect his country against such a threat, but he’s never faced any foe like this. However, when he discovers The Machinist’s connection to his past, Griffin vows to end the villain once and for all — but he’ll need the help of all his friends, including the beautiful Finley Jayne – the girl in the steel corset.

Reason: I haven't read any steampunk-ish books yet. So I'm looking forward to that unique part of the story. I also like the love-triangle suggestion. Weird thing that the other love-interest, Jack, got no air-time in the synopsis...I'm definitely intrigued.

Cover Discussion: What a dress! I love that you can see the "steel corset" as well. I like the touch of the props with the jewelry as well. Nice cover!

Expected Release Date: May 24th
