Bookish Sunday #2

Today I would like to spotlight a book I bought me at the Library bookstore and I adore the cover and genre ever since I started reading Lauren Stewart's series, The Hyde series - which blew my mind! 

If you should ever feel the need wanting to experience a pure alpha, with a cocky attitude, filthy mouth then I can only highly recommend her series, and Mitch of course, he's the man (click covers below - book 1 is for free). 


(Read my view for Hyde, bk 1, here )

----  If you love reading books with a strong plot that offers more than just a (toe-curling) romance then give it a try; Lauren's trilogy has it all: romance, steam, and a well developed plot with twists and turns that make your head spin  #TopFavorite ----

You might think, "Oh not another Hyde story," (so did I, to be honest) but trust me, this series is different.

Hence why I couldn't BUT buy this book, too: The Diabolical Miss Hyde by Viola Carr.

Forensic science, magic, mystery, and romance mix in this edgy steampunk fantasy—a retelling of the horror classic, in which Dr. Eliza Jekyll, daughter of the infamous Dr. Henry Jekyll—pursues a dangerous murderer in an alternate Victorian London.

In an electrified Victorian London, Dr. Eliza Jekyll is a crime scene investigator, hunting killers with newfangled technological gadgets. She will need every advantage available to catch a terrifying new psychopath splattering London with blood. Hidden in the grimy shadows, the fiendish murderer preys on beautiful women, drugging them before slicing off their limbs. Finding the “Slicer” can make Eliza’s career . . . or unmask her darkest secret. Like her father, she has a hidden second self that emerges when she drinks his forbidden magical elixir. Just a few sips, and a seductive and impulsive Lizzie Hyde is unleashed.

The members of the Royal Society do not trust Eliza, and they send their enforcer, the mercurial Captain Lafayette, to prove she’s a dangerous sorceress. The careful doctor knows that one wrong step can make her prey to the clever Lafayette, a man who harbors an evil curse of his own. No matter how much she craves the elixir, she must resist.

But as the Slicer case draws her into London’s luminous magical underworld, Eliza will need the potion’s power to help her . . . even if it might attract the attentions of Lafayette. .

Even if it means setting the wild Lizzie free. . . .

I adore this cover!! If you've never read an urban fantasy book then you're missing out ;) My August reading list is all ready to go and I can't wait to dive into another mind-blowing steampunk/urban fantasy book.

Connect with Viola Carr and take a look at her gorgeous website - seriously I love her design! 

As always, let me know what you think
