Heart of Brass
by Kate Cross Details
Arden Grey enjoys a life most women in 1898 London can't even dream of: she has the social status, wealth, and independence of a countess. She also has the ability to witness the final moments of a murder victim's life. But ever since the disappearance of her husband, Lucas, none of this means anything to her. Until one night, when Arden spies a man watching her-a man she recognizes as her missing husband. He's been ordered to assassinate Arden as retribution for her part in the killing of a Company agent. Luke remembers nothing of his life before the Company, a corrupt agency that has erased his memory. Even so, he can't seem to complete his assignment. There is something familiar about his lovely target, something that attracts him, and fills him with dread. For he knows that if he doesn't kill her, someone else will-and him as well
Kiss of Steel
by Bec McMaster Details
"Most people avoid the dreaded Whitecapel district. For Honoria Todd, it's the last safe haven. But at what price? Blade is known as the master of the rookeries, no one dares cross him. It's been said he faced down the Echelon's army single-handedly, that ever since being infected by the blood-craving he's been quicker, stronger, and almost immortal. When Honoria shows up at his door, his tenuous control comes close to snapping. She's so...innocent. He doesn't see her backbone of steel, or that she could be the very salvation he's been seeking."
