Steampunk Romance

Steampunk is Victorian Sci-fi. I also like it describe as Historical/Sci-fi. There is Steampunk literature and of course Steampunk Romance, but it doesn’t stop there, it includes art, gadgets, music, and clothing. 
So If you haven't tried Steampunk, yet.
Come a Steampunk reading
 in ebooks so green
Come a-reading
about robots on steam.
Gear, cogs, and brass for you.
And to you swift airships too.
Several years ago I wrote all my Steampunk books under the pen name of Maeve Alpin but I am now in the process of switching those books over to my name of Cornelia Amiri. I wrote three Steampunk books and I now have three under Cornelia Amiri and two are still left under Maeve Alpin. Let me start with those two.

Though society stands in their way, can love transcend time with the aid of robots and magic?
Little does Ricard know when he sets the broken head of an ancient Egyptian statue onto its body, the stone figure will transform before his eyes into the most beautiful flesh and blood woman he’s ever seen. 
Seshat, an ancient Egyptian Priestess has newly awakened in 19th century Paris, after centuries as a stone statue. Though enchanted by the wondrous inventions of steam-servants and a steam-carriage, she is enthralled by the inventor, Ricard. He ignites her sensual desires and in a steamy night of carnal magic, Seshat transforms Ricard’s life forever. But how far will he go to secure her happiness? Is Ricard’s love for Seshat powerful enough to transcend time?

With her bell skirt and layers of petticoats knotted, Felicity shamelessly straddles her motorized steam bicycle and rumbles down the streets of London. 
When a dark, handsome and half-naked bystander captures her attention, she crashes into a brick wall. 
After tinkering with a time machine, Heru, an ancient Egyptian, is swept through the ages to nineteenth-century London. He rushes to the aid of a woman in ridiculous, conservative clothing, riding a noisy brass-horse. Once he lifts her into his arms, he doesn't want to ever let her go. However, her father will stop at nothing to steal the time machine. Heru needs to keep the time machine out of Felicity's father's hands and keep her safe from the man's black-hearted machinations.
Sequel to As Timeless As Stone

Here are the three books under Cornelia Amiri
Forbidden love...so strong...it spans the universe.

Ana, a milkmaid disguised as a rich widow, boards a rocket to be blasted out of a huge cannon. Thrown off the Spanish estate she worked at, she's headed to the newly discovered planet X to start a new life. Sparks fly when Ana finds Ramon, the only man she ever loved and heir of the estate she worked on, is flying to Planet X as well. 

As the Spanish governor of Plant X searches for gold, the treasure Ramon seeks is Ana. His conquest is challenging. Though he swears to protect and love her, as a noble he cannot marry a peasant. Ana cannot deny her desire for Ramon but she will not be his mistress. 
Will Ramon's conquest of her heart succeed or will Ana make a life alone, amid the wonders of Planet X?

Spinster Librarian Piety Plunkett is happy alone with her books until her sister Polly transforms her with a bras octopus beautifying machine. With her new look, the librarian catches the lusty attentions of London’s most notorious rogue. Blake Blackmore enjoys the favors of beautiful women from the brothels of London to high society’s most fashionable debutantes but only the spinster librarian consumes his mind night and day. Piety insists she will not wed but devote her life to her position as head librarian, but Blake will stop at nothing to win her. He takes matters into his own hands and tutors her in carnal pleasure in three passion filled lessons. Now that she is sharing her body, instead of just her books, Piety is shocked yet pleased at how naughty she can be under Blake’s personal tutelage. But if anyone finds out about what goes on in the library after closing time, her reputation would be ruined. Is that Blake’ ultimate plan?

A Wild Ghost Chase
Queen Victoria orders the premiere phantom hunter, Sexton Dukenfield, to track down England’s missing ghosts. On the job, Sexton stumbles into Ceridwen, a phantom Celtic warrior woman. Not only does Sexton find her intriguing as a clue to the missing spirits, her sultry beauty haunts him as well. Though they both burn with desire, it’s difficult to quench their fiery passion since Ceridwen is so translucent. 

On a mission through the bustling narrow streets of London, to a dreary match factory, and to the Otherworld and back to stop a genius scientist and his phantasm debilitater machine, the ghost and the ghost hunter also seek the secret …to freeing the boundaries of life and death. Is it possible…or just a wild ghost chase?
