Product Description

Product Description

James Kilter has few illusions about himself. Maimed in a boiler accident when young and routinely reviled by those he encounters, he’s no prize for any woman. He’s content working security for a good friend until he sees Catherine Delaney disembark from an airship one May afternoon. Her fragile beauty calls up all his protective instincts. But will she accept a monster as her defender?

Having traded her own safety to save her young sister, Cat Delaney has landed in the hands of a ruthless, wealthy man who intends to use her as a pawn to his avarice. Alone in a strange city, she has nowhere to turn except to the very man hired to keep her from running. Can she trust James, with his ruined face and crusader’s spirit? Dare she give him her heart?

This was the first time I read a book from this genre and was not sure what to expect. Well I loved it it took me a bit to get into the whole steampunk ideal, but once that was settled,the story was great. Laura Strickland does a great job of creating a story with many interesting characters and emotions. I look forward to reading more from this author and also in this category!!

I bought this book directly from the publisher, but hope Amazon will allow my review to stand. Ms. Strickland has written a story that will appeal to anyone who enjoys thoughtful insights partnered with satisfying plot twists and an exciting conclusion. Animal lovers will adore the compassionate hero who has the misfortune to have a marred face. But miracles happen, and true love prevails against all odds in this well-written novel featuring wonderful and believable world building. Off Kilter is a satisfying read and highly recommended.

This book was very fun to read. I love the idea of the historical time period mixed with futuristic components. The book was well written and the characters drew me in. It is the first book I have read by Laura and I really enjoyed it. The main male character, James Kilter had a very rough childhood and was scared while working as a young child. The scars are mostly on his face and he is made fun of because of the way he looks. He works for a man named Tate who took him in and gave him a job when no one else wood. The main female character, Cat Delaney has been sold to a horrible man, Boyd by her step-father. The man originally wanted her little sister but Cat offered herself in place of her sister. Cat knew that he wouldn’t be nice to her but she had no idea what he had in store for her. She is to be a kept woman possibly given to other men as part of business deals for a time may be given away completely to someone else with no say in the matter. James is hired by the man to make sure Cat doesn’t try to get away. James was chosen to guard her because Boyd thought that Cat would never do anything with a man who looked like James. Too bad for Boyd that Cat is moved by how James acts not how he looks. Cat could care less about the way James looks on the outside she only cares about how he acts and treats her. James believes there is no way that he and Cat could have a future after all how could any woman willing want to tie herself to a man who looks like him. It was wonderful to see that appearances didn’t matter to Cat and that she loved James anyway. I felt for James so much. He had been teased about his appearance for so long that he believed there was no way Cat could really love him. He kept coming up with excuses as to why she didn’t really mean it when she said she loved him or was attracted to him. All the characters in this book were good. The story flowed well. I look forward to reading other books by Laura in the future.
I was given this book in return for an honest review.

I enjoyed this book and especially Strickland’s world building! The slightly askew historical Buffalo, New York that Strickland built here is intriguing. I particularly liked her automatons and hybrids--and the magic she involved in the story didn't hurt, either (I’m looking forward to reading the now-Mrs. McMahon’s book Dead Handsome: A Buffalo Steampunk Adventure!). Boyd was a suitably-disgusting villain and James the kindhearted perfect hero, despite his looks. (Nice to see that in a romance novel!) If you enjoy steampunk or have a thirst for a slightly different kind of historical romance, I think you will love Laura Strickland's Off Kilter: A Buffalo Steampunk Adventure!
