Computer technician Jack Fletcher is no hero, despite his unwelcome reputation as one. In fact, he's just been the victim of bizarre circumstances. Like now. His sister happens to disturb one of his nanoelectromechanical system experiments, and now they aren't where they're supposed to be.

But the sparks flying between her and Jack just may cause her airship to combust and ignite a passion that will forever change the world as she knows it.… (mehr)

This is absolutely the best alternate universe / steampunk / romance / pirate adventure I've ever read. It's also the ONLY alternate universe / steampunk / romance / pirate adventure I've ever read and, with any luck, will the the last.

It's all terribly silly, with great chunks of action off-page and summed up in a sentence. One chapter ends with our protagonists locked up and facing certain execution, and the next begins with them running down an alley and telling each other how lucky it was that XXX happened so that they could escape. They also have a tendency to leap upon each other's bones any time they have five minutes to spare, despite the press of events (like needing to escape from the bad guys or rescue someone).

The only saving grace of this book is that it doesn't take itself at all seriously. The sex scenes are uniformly PG-rated, the steampunk technology is kept firmly in the background, and the characters -- if highly unbelievable -- are at least amusing. ( )

This is another one of MacAlister's "it is but it isn't" books. Meaning it's steampunk, but it's only steampunk because the modern man gets tossed into the world of his favorite book and meets an intriguing airship captain.

You either like Katie MacAlister's books or you don't. I do. I like her humor, her heroines, and the incredible supporting characters she comes up with. Her books are fun, light reads. ( )

The heroine, a new captain and her first voyage of an old ship needs to keep her head in order to prove herself to her crew. What she doesn't need is finding two stowaways onboard. A man and his sister, who have a strange way of speaking and talk gibberish. The hero remembered experimenting in his lab than a big explosion. then nothing until he wakes up in what he thinks is a steampunk convention. The sexy captain instantly catches his eye, corset and all and he makes no qualms about hiding his attraction. In fact, he's charmingly honest about almost everything. He's got an innocent way about him that is refreshing. The heroine finds him exceedingly attractive with his different colored eyes and lean body. Though she fights it for a moment, she eventually gives into her desire and the two quickly become loves. The romance and sexual development between the hero and heroine was very quick but honest. The heroine is forthright with the amount of overs she's had, turns out that every one of them is a key part of the story which I found comical. The one think that put me off was the authors having the hero frequently comment on the heroine's 'boobs'. Firstly, she is a proper lady, despite her amount of lovers and she's a very capable captain of a steamship in the middle of a war. Also, 'boobs' just made him sound more immature than he already acted. I did absolutely LOVE the setting of this book and the world they live in. Every major culture is alive and thriving from Roman's to Moghuls, to Prussia to America. I found it so creative and adored reading about how these empires coincided with one another. Funny enough and I suppose true to form, they are all constantly at war with each other. Other then the setting, I didn't much love the characters and they were very light and fluffy. It was an ok read at best but not anything to die over. ( )

I'd give this a zero if i could. Bad plot, annoying and overly quirky characters and every time there was a situation that had you thinking "how could they possibly get out of this?" the action jumped to the next chapter and there the characters were just discussing how nice / fortunate / lucky it was that they got out of it - no explanation or discription of how: just "yay, we're out. what stupid thing should we do next?"
I've read a few of Katie MacAlisters before and they were no where near this bad - not brilliant, but not total shit either. Don't let this stand as an example of her work. ( )

First off, I love love love the cover of this book, it is absolutely gorgeous...get a copy to look at in your hands, the pictures do it no justice. It's beautiful. This is the second book in the 'steampunk' genre I have read, the other being 'Soulless'. This book was a completely different experience, it is set in present times in an alternate world as opposed to the past in the same world.

The main characters Octavia and Jack are HILARIOUS, I kept cracking up at the most inappropriate moments, the book makes a scene feel serious, but not serious at all, in a whole new way, and just wait until you read one the sensual scenes, I laughed my way almost through the whole thing.

The plot is sturdy and strong, except for the thing with Hallie, she just gets arrested, I wish that could have gotten a bit more explanation, but everything else was pretty good. Flowed well, no lulls, and kept a decent pace. I do wish we could have gotten to know some of the crew better but I have a feeling this is the first in a series for Ms. MacAlister.

'Steamed' was an adventure to read, one I will gladly go on again and again ( )
