Jesse Winthrope is a self-made millionaire who has quickly risen from his own humble beginnings. Rocketed high into the upper echelons after the invention of his high efficiency Winthrope Steam Engine, Jesse is poised to take on the Western Frontier, starting in the city of Diablo.
Jenny Boone is from a hard-working farming family, living off the land far from the city and its technological marvels. However, circumstances beyond Jenny’s control force her into the clutches of a highly judgmental population.
Going to work in one of Winthrope’s factories, the two find each other and along with it a love that crosses both finances and prejudices.
Can their feelings for each other survive, or will society get the best of them, dousing the fire in their hearts?
Jesse was thrown into the family business at such a young age. He lives a lavish lifestyle, is insanely smart, and handsome but one thing he is lacking in his life is love.
Jenny is starting over in a new place and she meets Jesse as she is a worker in his factory. I liked these two as a couple because they were complete opposites of each other. This shows how you can find love in the most unexpected places including different social status.
Frost, I always seem to have soft spot for the bad boys and in my opinion he is just misunderstood. I'm hoping he will be able to redeem himself as the series continues.
Did I mention we get bots in this book?! I wasn't sure what to expect with the bots but I was not disappointed at all with the addition to the story!
As a huge fan of Czermak's Journeymen series I was excited and intrigued to see he was coming out with a Steampunk Romance Series. Honestly going in I had no idea what to expect. I've never read the Steampunk genre before, heck I didn't even know it existed until now. What I do know is that I was very impressed and I'm now hooked on the genre. I encourage everyone to take a chance and have a open mind when it comes to this book. This story had twist, turns, action, deceit and my favorite romance. Czermak has such a way with his words and storytelling. Whenever he creates a story he makes you feel like you are right alongside with the characters. His description to detail is like no other!! It was like having a movie playing out in my head the whole time I was reading. This story is told in several points of views but it's not overwhelming and I loved being inside each character's head and getting their backstory. I'm very excited to see where this series is headed and what Czermak will think of next! Well done!!

In the beginning, Golden worked the standard corporate rat race, completed college for a Chemical Engineering Degree, and began a small photography company on the side.
Since then, and the growth of the FuriousFotog brand, Golden became an internationally published modeling/fitness photographer and eventually began working as a book cover model.
Having been in the industry for at least four years, he has interfaced and networked with countless authors and other clients. As part of his work as a photographer, he worked with them to create book cover images - now numbering well over 400 at the beginning of 2017.
Learning the ins and out of the book world, along with being an avid reader and storyteller himself, Golden finally decided to write and publish his first book, Homeward Bound, in June 2016. This paranormal adventure romance will span a total of six books and new ideas for other stories are in the works as well.
