An exciting steampunk announcement from Heather Massey...

Yolanda has kindly given me time on her blog to tell you about The Watchmaker’s Lady, my forthcoming erotic steampunk romance e-novella from Red Sage Publishing. In this story, a watchmaker in 1840 New England falls in love with a beautiful clockwork automaton, but how long before the townspeople discover his forbidden affair?

Here’s the (unofficial) story blurb:

Matthew Goddard is a lonely watchmaker in 1840 New England. One fateful day, he discovers the lover of his dreams in a dusty corner of the local general store—Isabel, a bisque porcelain mannequin head with mesmerizing, smoky blue eyes. When Matthew invites her to come live with him, she eagerly “accepts.”

The couple embarks on a lust-filled affair, one fueled by Matthew’s wild imagination. In order to provide Isabel with a brass body and pretty clothes, he begins a secret side business selling clockwork sex toys to his wealthy female customers.

Danger, however, threatens their idyllic romance when a disgruntled customer exposes Matthew’s forbidden business to the townspeople. Despite the growing menace, Matthew will stop at nothing in order to save his soul mate—and protect their love.

The Watchmaker’s Lady is a tale of two soul mates who fight to keep their romance alive despite overwhelming odds. The story combines clockpunk, a hero with an unusual occupation, an unconventional heroine, steamy love scenes, and a surprise twist that I’m not going to spoil for you!

Look for The Watchmaker’s Lady from Red Sage Publishing in Spring 2012. You can also visit my site and blog for developing news.

Thanks for reading!
