Lady Janette Aston is poised, proper, and feminine on the outside, but in secret, she devours the latest scientific publications of the day. Her insatiable thirst for knowledge fascinates Darius Lawley, who had the uncanny ability to see beneath Janette’s façade to the burning desire within her…


When Darius catches Janette with dangerous information she never should have found, he begins to discover how uniquely valuable she is—both to the Order that he serves, and to his own heart… (from the back of the arc)

I have adored Mary Wine’s Scottish Romances so when Sourcebooks offered A Lady Can Never Be Too Curious, Mary Wine’s Victorian Steampunk romance, I jumped at the chance to review it.

This was my first voyage into the steampunk genre and I must say that I was indeed curious so when the book arrived, I immediately devoured it. For me, the novel was engaging and entertaining. I enjoyed that the characters were not of the norm. The plot, as it was dealing with steampunk themes, such as deep earth crystals, odd Victorian inventions, and secret science societies, was exciting, adventurous, and fresh and I simply could not get enough of it.

What caught my attention?

Lady Janette Aston was inquisitive, determined, and had a lust for science and a longing for Darius Lawley. I liked the fact that she was not the normal romance heroine, she was feisty and thoroughly enjoyable to read.

Secret Societies-the forbidden aspect of secret societies lured me in.

I have recently read some steam punk books and have enjoyed them. This one sounds great!
