A closer look at......Magical Redemption

When five college friends reunite, one night changes their lives forever.
Dani O’Brien is an introverted astrophysicist who spends most of her life staring at the stars and never allowed other people’s opinions to dictate her life. Her four best friends are the closest she has to sisters and their annual gathering to celebrate a friend’s life is one of the highlights of her year.

Identical twins Gavin and Maddoc McDryw are Druids with the ability to influence the energy that every living being emits. They alienated themselves from their clan after allowing a woman they thought they loved to manipulate them.

The brothers can’t figure out why they are so drawn to the quirky human but the longer she’s with them the stronger their feelings for her become. But, not everyone is happy with this burgeoning relationship. As negative forces tear them apart, can they trust in the magic of love to hold them together? 

There is something to be said for the allure of twins, something which has gotten Maddoc and Gavin McDryw in trouble in the past. They're looks are so similar that almost everyone in their family, with the exception of their mum, often gets them confused. Because of this many of their business dealings don't realize that there are two of them, often allowing them to be in two situations at the same times.

Raised as Druids in the Scottish Highlands, they fell for a woman who betrayed and almost slaughtered their entire family. Ashamed, the brothers left their homeland and made their way to the Americas. For the past couple centuries they have lived in the Bywater District of New Orleans. Now they keep to themselves and have gathered an adopted family around them, protecting them and their community from anything that would threaten them. The brothers have a unique ability to manipulate the earth's natural energy and bend it to their will. This has come in handy in many dangerous situations.

Dani O'Brien is a poster child for "Wallflowers". She's not comfortable in social situations and often has trouble controlling some of her quirky tendencies. Most people don't understand her and while she has been a outcast most of her life, she usually doesn't give it much thought.
Diagnosed with Aspergers as a teenager, her mom never allowed her to use a diagnosis as as excuse not to try. With that kind of support she graduated university with a PHD and is a talented astrophysicist.

Her life is all about structure and routines. She has a couple OCD habits that she has to follow, like packing her suitcase in a specific order so that nothing is missed. There is also an antique astrolabe her mother bought for her as a graduation present, that Dani takes everywhere she goes.

Curious about Steampunk but haven't given it a try?

Steam Powered Passion is on Retro Release! Which means its on 50% off for a limited time!

This is the first book in my Steampunked Lust series. If you aren't sure what Steampunk's having all the elegance and pomp of the Regency & Victorian eras but with modern conveniences. Steam is the major power source, not electricity.



[Erotic Steampunk Ménage a Trois Romance, M/M/F]
Tori is dealt a terrible blow when she is given to a couple of pirates as insurance on a ship. But finding herself lifted up into an airship is only the first of many surprises. The second? Malcolm and Sean attacked her ship in order to get their hands on her.
Malcolm and Sean both realize they need a woman in their relationship. Tori seems to be the perfect solution. But can she see past their physical differences to the men beneath and accept them as they are?
But Tori is more then she appears. She’s been passing secrets to the old-world rebels for years. When she is seen leaking information to the new-world military, will her men believe she wasn’t trying to betray them?
Can each of them see past their personal expectations and accept a relationship steam-built for three?

Professional Reviews

RECOMMENDED READ: "Steam Powered Passion is what all erotic steampunk should strive to be; Victorian ethics and technology intermingled with modern day sensibilities and fantastic inventions, with some very hot sex. It is a fantastic read and the plot, both character and adventure driven, will keep you on the edge of your seat. Mal, Sean, and Tori are all very detailed, unique and believable characters. Each have their own wants, desires, and agendas; often at odds with each other. They are all very lovable characters and I cared deeply about what happens to them. Mal and Sean's relationship is obviously lacking something, but Tori adds the right balance to make the menage a trios both wonderfully erotic and believable. That is if all three strong personalities don't screw it up by the end of the story. The plot is clear and fun. This isn't to say there aren't some angst ridden moments where you want to reach in and strangle the protagonists or that there aren't any sad and poignant moments. The plot works on two levels - romance and adventure - and it does so deftly. I'm glad that Steam Powered Passion is the first in the series, Steampunked Lust. The world Corinne Davies created definitely deserves visiting again. I would love to learn more about the politics, technology and culture of this unique universe." -- Rogue Satyr, Literary Nymphs Reviews
5 TEA CUPS: "Corinne brought the a different world to today’s readers. Wow, this story of Viktorya’s, Sean and Malcolm was wonderful read and very entertaining to see a female put two men in their place as they put her in theirs right between them. Tori was in a loveless marriage and to her that was fine as long as she could keep her secret of giving the enemy their information needed to over throw the New World. What she didn’t count on was a husband who was willing to kill her instead of loving her. The day she was abducted from her husbands ship was the day her life really started. Facing the unknown future was better than looking at a man who care nothing for her. Mel Captain of his ship and of Sean his first mate and the love of his life he would do anything for and that is also bring Tori into their relationship. Sean had loved Tori since childhood and he couldn’t believe that Tori would marry a man without love. What he didn’t realize was the deep hurt that it cost her to marry Alexander,. The man without a heart or soul. Malcolm was strong and he used that strength to get him what he wanted. Sean was a man who was built to kill but when an accident caused him to lose one arm what was a man to do but build another. And being a mechanist he could and did just that. All Tori knew was that she had her old friend and the love of her life back and when he came with Malcolm then she knew her life was complete. The story of the three has many twist and turns and it was so exciting to read a book where you couldn’t put it down till the last word was read. Great job of writing an intriguing book. The sex scenes give you a warm and cozy feeling deep inside." -- Wendy, Happily Ever After Reviews
