A Lady Never Lies
by Stephanie Burkhart

Jocelyn Dunkirk is not your typical Victorian lady. She dresses in leather, wears goggles and is not afraid to get a little grease under her fingernails. Gentlemen avoid her like a dirty rivet.

Richard Windsor, the Prince of Wales, travels through time to claim Jocelyn’s heart, but if it isn’t one challenge, it’s another. He determines to be a constant, steady presence in her life, hoping to prove he’d make a worthy husband.

Jocelyn’s facing a bucket full of problems. The Prime Minister wants her to assist in ending a coal strike before it cripples the nation while her father attempts to recover from a serious injury. Will Jocelyn’s dedication to her country and family ruin the one chance she has at love?

Read an excerpt from the book:

Jocelyn raked her hand through her hair in frustration. Her conversation with her father turned her world upside down. His lawyer was traveling to Nottingham to advise a man Jocelyn had never met he was her father’s heir. She knew nothing about Augustus Darling. How could she trust him? Her stomach knotted. Her father could die leaving Jocelyn as penniless as a discarded mistress.

To a degree, that didn’t matter. Jocelyn knew she had enough talent to make her way in the world, like Keira, but she didn’t appreciate feeling this way, like an afterthought. If only the last couple of days were a bad dream. She wished she could open her eyes and have her world back. Damn Richard and his insistence they exchange rings. Damn his wonderfully sweet lips. They made her believe in love.

She swatted her hand next to her head like she was swatting a fly. Love could flitter away from her heart like a hummingbird for all she cared. Who needed it? Love hurt.

A knock rapped on the door, but before she could voice a reply, Richard walked in. He crossed the room, raw concern splayed over his face and he knelt before her. “What’s wrong?”

“Nothing.”

“You look annoyed.”

“A lady never cusses,” she replied.

His lips tipped in amusement. “What else does a lady never do?”

“They never wear the same dress twice.”

He pulled up a chair and sat in front of her. “I believe that.”

“And a lady never lies,” she said.

He slid his hand over hers and laced their fingers together. A sweet jolt pulsed up her arm and she smiled despite herself.


My review:
Steampunk and time travel- two of my favorite things. Strong, spunky women? Yup, this book has that too. I haven’t read any other book in this series but it didn’t matter at all (although they are on my TBR list now). It’s so fun reading how the characters out of their own time try to acclimate into the time period they are dropped into. Jocelyn and Richard’s love story is fantastic and TRUELY spans all of time. I totally was wrapped up in this book and stayed up way too late reading. 5 stars from me.

    I love the cover but the title is what drew me in !

  7. Thank you so much for having me here today. I’m so glad you liked the story! I love the cover art as well. The artist is Jen Ranieri and she did a fantastic job with it. I also loved coming up with the titles in the Windsor Diaries. So, I have to ask… How much does a cover TITLE attract you to a book. Does it get your interest and make yo want to read the blurb?

    Thanks
