They're definitely primarily steampunk society adventures, but there's strong romantic elements in the 1st book and plenty of shippy stuff throughout them all (at least up through the 4th book, which is as far as I've read).
Here's my impression of the 1st
& 2nd book
from last year, plus some follow-up comments from other people who read the 1st in the Reading Recs forum, if you're morbidly curious.
I do have these on my TBR list. I don't know if I will read them this year due to the reading contemporaries kick I have been on all year. The next Cozie series I plan to Start the High Heels one by Gemma Halliday. I got the audio edition of Spying in High Heels. I just need to finish the Rock Chick series. I'm on book 6 and there are currently only 7 books. The 8th book is suppose to come out this month but I know KA has just gotten back her computer the other day so I expect it to be delayed. She is currently working on the next Book in her Unfinished Hero series. I can only hope it's not as bad as Knight was.
I try to read 3 books at a time. So now I need to start two more.
I am thinking Hell on Wheels will be one and the other a Christie Craig book.
