I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Now we have the first kiss (guess the heroine isn't worried anymore about the impropriety of having a man in her house). Victoria reminds herself that, just a few hours ago, the guy chloroformed her and kidnapped her, but the thought only gives her a "perverse thrill." What is with these two?
Oh, and the steampunk aspects have been extremely light so far. Certainly not prominent enough to make up for the crappy romance.
