    1 thought on “Prudence and the Professor”

    1. Anyone who knows me, knows that I tend to avoid most things steampunk related. I like my complicated world-building and overall book surroundings to be more fantasy than mech in their flavor. But occasionally there will be a steampunk novel that will sneak its way into my to-read pile. Because of the fact that this was marketed first and foremost as a historical romance, this one crawled in through the breach! I was interested because the cover doesn't scream steampunk OR typical, historical rom [...]

    2. Prudence is an independent minded woman in a time when that is not appreciated. She is a war widow and a business school graduate. She finds herself finally being appreciated for her intellect instead of being denigrated for her sex. She moves out to Montana to work as a secretary for Professor Gerritt Rhinehart. He is an inventor who is currently working for the Union government to develop an invention that will possibly stop the war. When Gerritt hired Prudence he didn’t realize he was getti [...]

    3. I don't often read historical romance books because I am picky when it comes to historical romance and I don't usually read steampunk books either but once in a while I will read a steampunk book if it interests me. I am so happy I decided to read this one because I so much enjoyed it. I read it last night in bed and I really just wanted to read for half an hour but ended up reading it for 2 hours because I just couldn't put it down This book is well written and a fun read that keeps you interes [...]

    4. Sibelle StoneWelcome to the quirky and one of a kind town of Jubilee, Montana that is filled to the rim with unique and original townsfolk. Once you enter, you will never want to leave!Prudence Worthington was married at 18 and widowed by 20, all do to the Civil War. She lived with her abusive mother-in-law and indifferent father-in-law after hubby's death, but she needed to break from her old life into a new one. With the help of her Uncle Edwin, she is 1 of the first women to enroll into the L [...]

    5. "People have a tendency to misjudge what they don't understand." - Gerritt RhinehartWhen Steampunk meets romance and loads of humor, you know you're in for quite the ride! Young war widow Prudence Worthington knows that it's not proper for a single lady to travel to and stay at a bachelor's place. But she has a dream that needs funding to come true, and working as the new secretary for Professor Gerritt Rhinehart is the only way for her to get said funds. She expects to live with a quiet, nerdy [...]

    6. I have a weakness for steampunk. It represents the perfect solution for my incredible weaknesses for gadgetry, history and romance. All in one delectable package (or kindle book anyway).This one has all these elements, and I really enjoyed reading it, but it rather lost me halfway through, and I ended up feeling a bit disappointed.The hero and heroine are great characters, and probably what held it together for me, although some of the secondary characters were pretty damned good too. The settin [...]

    7. I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.Prudence Worthington is a business minded war widow who intends to make enough money to open her own business school and get completely out from under the thumb of her horrid in-laws. Professor Gerritt Rhinehart is a crazed inventor who eschews the paperwork side of his business in favor of working on his fantastical creations and supporting and developing the entire town. The whole thing is set in [...]

    8. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/Prudence and the Professor reads very much like a typical Western romance - very idealized characters, evil bad guys, lots of lust and sex, and the lawlessness of the period. Steampunk props and Indian mysticism add a touch of the unique but the characters still felt like characters rather than people. But then again, that's why we read romance, for the sweetness.Prudence was married at 18 and widowed by her 20th birthday thanks to t [...]

    9. I have found that it can be difficult to find a good mix of steampunk and romance. One of the halves always seems to come up a little short. Prudence and the Professor had a very nice balance of the two. The machines and contraption were a little lacking in the middle, but the Screaming Meemie and the devices at the end made up for it. Prudence and Gerrit seem to be made for each other, but neither of them want to admit it. Their reasons aren't very sound, and it was really the only downside of [...]

    10. I received this book via Netgalley for review.Although romance is not my first choice of genre, I do find it fun once in awhile, especially when steampunk is involved. This on the other hand had only a small dose of steampunk. Airships, mech-men, arc guns and canons are mentioned with little explanation. Probably the most humorous contraption was the screaming meemie. More disappointing was the romance aspect. It is there, but buried between pages of lust. Her aching with desire, he groaning wit [...]

    11. DNF ~ I read until abut 48% and I really couldn't finish it.I couldn't get into the story line and the characters didn't grip me ~ I found the professor's mood swings to be really annoying.I felt no connection between the two of them ~ and I am so gutted that I couldn't finish it, I did give it about 4 trys but I had to give in.I scrolled to the end and found out how it finished before I got rid of the book for good, even though I could have guessed how it ended lol.

    12. There's a dance that happens in romance novels. A dance between the hero and heroine. During this dance they're supposed to stay in character. If the heroine is a headstrong widow, with only two weeks of marriage under her belt, and the hero is a workaholic professor who's more into his work than social construct, you expect them to stay in those molds. At least during the first act. But Prudence and the Professor kept shifting their personalities. Prudence becoming wanton and not feeling shy ab [...]

    13. This was a fantastic read by a new-to-me author. It seemed a bit steampunk so I would definitely recommend it to any fans of the genre. I placed it under the worldly-weres shelf due to the Indian tribe who were Spirit Walkers (shifters). The plot was interesting and it was nice to see a hero who had book and street smarts. It is a rare combination in books as well as real life. I loved the heroine's spunk and determination. There were a couple of parts that didn't seem to ring as true as they co [...]
