What a lush, gorgeous cover, right? I confess I've read very few steampunk books, but I do enjoy the alternate view of the past, enhanced with technology they really didn't have.
Ms. Sarai describes this book as: "Steampunk Erotica, MF, MM, MFM, FF, etcetera…" So the reader knows from the start that there will be a whole lot of sexing going on--and enough variety to satisfy every taste.
Why did Ms Sarai write this book? "I've been in love with this strange meld of science fiction and Victoriana for as long as I can remember – long before steam punk even had a name...I've written a number of steam punk short stories for anthologies, as well as a full length novel, Rajasthani Moon. [Note: One of my favorite books by her!] All these tales, though, were set in Asia rather than in the British Isles. I think I was afraid I’d make errors my UK readers would notice if I tried setting a story in Queen Victoria’s home country. In my latest steam punk release, The Pornographer’s Apprentice, I finally bit the bullet and wrote an English steam punk novel. I had a lot of help with details from my critique group at the Erotica Readers & Writers Association, but of course I take responsibility for any residual mistakes. I just hope you’ll find the story so exciting, you won’t notice them!
If you like steam punk erotica with a kinky feminist bent, you'll love The Pornographer's Apprentice.

Gillian’s heart beat faster. She had not expected such decisive physicality from the lanky, bookish apprentice.
Archie followed close behind, carrying their glasses and a second bottle of wine. Ian settled her gently on the bed, then completed the task of undressing her. Archie distributed refilled goblets. He raised his high. The others followed suit.
“To the successful conclusion of our mission,” Gillian toasted.
“To daring new experiences,” Ian responded with a knowing smile.
“To Jill,” cried Archie. “Our erotic inspiration.”
Gillian’s cheeks grew warm. She was still not used to being praised for her licentious nature. “To the Guild,” she murmured, “and the freedom to follow our desires.”
