This prequel to Death Below Stairs introduces us to Kat Holloway and to Daniel McAdam and his son, the "street urchin" James. After serving a meal for her former employer, Kat spends a night in Newgate Prison as a presumed murderer until Daniel miraculously gets her out. Although Daniel finds her a position, she insists on going through her own agency to locate a new one. Since her food had been corrupted, she's determined to find the person who made suspicion fall on her for the murder of a man no one really liked.… (més)

This was a delightful addition to the Captain Lacey series. I have read each book as they were released into the world and I’ve loved each of them. Not only does this one have a mystery with twists and turns, it presents some intriguing possibilities for future plots – maybe even a new ongoing villain. We’ll just have to wait and see.

The thing we all thought would never happen – HAPPENED! Not only was James Denis arrested for murder, but he was found standing over the body with the bloody knife in his hand. Of course, those of us who read this series know he isn’t guilty – as does Captain Lacey. That, however, doesn’t dampen Bow Street Runner Spendlove’s elation and joy at finally getting Denis into Newgate.

Much to Denis’s dismay, Captain Lacey begins to investigate only to find himself in danger. How did the victim come to be where he was found? With Denis’s cunning, how did he manage to allow himself to be caught standing over the body with the murder weapon in his hand?

As we learn more about the victim, Lacey finds himself under attack. Is it the murderer or is it Denis’s new archenemy – or are they one and the same? I can’t wait to see where that storyline goes. Will Mr. William Archer take over as the villain of the series or will Denis send him on to his great reward? Another intriguing storyline could include Lady as Denis's love interest. Will he allow it or will he admire her from afar? Will she be used against him in the future? I would certainly bet on it.

This was a quick, fun read with an interesting mystery with a bit of a twist. I enjoyed seeing more of Denis’s men and learning a bit about them rather than them staying window-dressing and used for nothing other than a handy set of fists. Of course, I loved Donata and Lacey and that he tells her absolutely everything and always keeps her as his first priority.

If you are looking for a nice mystery with interesting characters and lovely twists and turns, then you might want to give this book a read.

First Impressions
Iron Master is the 12th installment in the "Shifter's Unbound" series and I was eager for this one because the hero and heroine have both been in many books in the series play significant roles and there has been slow tension that has been building between them for quite a while. I really admired the way that this book was written, it had a fun plot and the romance was endearing even if it was low key. I am sure my enjoyment was severely impacted by my health issues but I did a combo of this one in both ebook and the audio and both versions were quite fun to read and these are shorter books now so you can get through it pretty quickly.

First Line

The Main Protagonists
The Hero: Stuart
The Heroine:Peigi

What I Loved
Iron Master was quite fun. We have a great forbidden love match in a way between these two. Although no one is shocked that they end up together in Shiftertown even though Stuart Reid is a fae and one of their enemies that they just work with because he is rejected by his own people and have helped them in different ways. I really found it intriguing in the way in which the author show cased this element. I found the plot of the story to be the highlight of the story actually. It definitely keeps you on edge all the way through and I was always questioning where it would go and how it would be resolved in the end. And I did enjoy the setting being not in shiftertown like many of these books, but set in the fae realms and you can definitely feel like more is going to happen to where it left off here.

The romance was interesting. It was more softly placed so if you are a fan of how romantic suspense books are written, then you will enjoy this. The romance I wouldn't say being the primary focus, it was definitely the suspense plot of things, but it was well established within the story, but you would probably get more out of it if you have read the previous books so that you can get the slow build up all the way through.

What I Struggled With
I wanted to love this one more than I did but I just didn't feel the connection that is between Stuart and Peigi to be honest. I knew of their connection beforehand as I have read the previous books but I was disappointed that I didn't get more feels from their relationship. I felt like it was so focused on the plot and the sexual side of it that we didn't see much development in the emotional side of the relationship. I know it may work for some readers, but it fell a bit short for me but still ended up being a solid read.

I really enjoyed the narration of this story. It really dug into the vibe of the series and captured it just right from what us readers have loved since the very beginning.

Overall View
Iron Master is a well crafted story that digs into well detailed plot lines, capturing the culture of shiftertown and delivering a well balanced tale of suspense and laughter to entertain from beginning to end.

Steam/Spice Explanations

Steamin' up the room -the sexual content is more explicit in the language and tone, heavier amount of sexual scenes.

My Review:

Tiger Striped was such an interesting read and it was such fun to return back to Tiger and Carly and this whole world of Shiftertown. Tiger Striped is a blend of a extended epilogue type of novella but also a prequel for the book "Tiger's Daughter".

This is a story that had such great blends to it and I really enjoyed seeing what life for Tiger and Carly is like for them. But we also see something more happen for them and the potential of this experience. I really enjoyed how Tiger and Carly are on this adventure together. When Tiger senses someone in danger, he is determined to rescue them. What none of them expect is that this mysterious individual would actually have very close connections to Tiger and be his long lost daughter who has been tortured and treated like an animal all of her life.

There was so much heartfelt emotion that rivals throughout this story. I absolutely enjoyed how this was portrayed and Jennifer Ashley did a great job with this novella. It was a true win of a story and kept me captivated all the way through. You can count on this author to deliver a fun ride of a journey!
