This was an alright read. Asher was an inventor and one of his inventions was stolen by his mentor five years before and Asher thought Silas’s daughter Minerva, the woman he loved, had been part of the theft so he broke off their engagement. Now Minerva shows up at his door needing Asher’s help because her father has been kidnapped.
Anyway, the invention Asher had been working on when it was stolen was a perpetual-motion machine and now Silas was kidnapped because the kidnapper thought it really worked. He wanted the machine brought to a bridge at midnight and Minerva was to bring it alone. When Minerva got to the bridge that’s when became very exciting.
There was a HFN, no swearing, and some heaving petting but no sex. I am going to read the next novella, Asher’s Dilemma, to see what happens with Asher and Minerva. This one wasn’t a cliffhanger but I think you should read this one before you read Asher’s Dilemma.
As to the narration: Elizabeth Jasicki was barely okay for me. Her men’s voices weren’t all that great and what emotions she did read with were all in the wrong places.
The narration was good. I liked the smooth cultured tones that depicts the stories era. Unfortunately that's the only good thing I can say about this story. The female lead was kind of foolish and ineffective, there was no chemistry between the main characters and the story was overly predictable.
