Summary

When airship engineer Melody McKay's dirigible explodes and plunges her into the yard of a gothic manor, she suspects foul play. With her ankle injured - an indignity far too feminine for her taste - she resolves to crack the mystery while in the care of Victor Arrington, the stuffy yet disarming earl of Blackwell.

Ex-Royal Navy captain Victor runs a tight house and is on a mission to protect his niece and foil a ring of smugglers using fire-breathing metal dragons. He has no time for romantic attachments. Particularly not with women who fall from the sky wearing trousers and pilot's goggles.

As he and Melody navigate a treachery so deep it threatens the lives of everyone in Black Heath, the earl becomes unexpectedly attached to his fiery houseguest, and Melody discovers a softness in her heart for him. But when the smugglers strike, there's more at risk than just their future together.

ummm..

the story on this one is just as good as all the others but the ending is a bit ... cut off. theres no epilog like in many others in the series. she drops a bombshell and it just stops, like audible forgot to read the final chapter or like finding a book with the last 3 pages torn out. feels unfinished.

Better without the progressive fetishism

I can only think the author chose to write in this time period out of a fetishized obsession with progressive theory and a desire to make heroes of feminist nonsense- due to an understanding that it isn't a problem people actually face in any real extent anymore, and the misguided belief that it was faced in the form of every attractive man in the past being a misogynistic autocrat who had to be made to change his ways.

It gets tedious working through the straw-man caricatures she puts up as foils for her right-thinking virtuous heroines every. single. time.

But- it is what it is, and if you can slog through that mess it's interesting enough.
