    1. Sir Jasper Lynch, Master of the Guild of Nighthawks, has three weeks to find Mercury, the leader of the humanist movement responsible for a recent bombing attack against the Echelon. Rosalind Fairchild's younger brother, Jeremy was caught up in the bombing and has now disappeared. Applying for the position as secretary to Lynch may be just the way in to access any information on Jeremy's whereabouts and fate.This is yet another thoroughly entertaining instalment in the London Steampunk series. B [...]


    2. Celebrating the big 5-0-0, plus 9 and 18 and 1 and 5 and 2.I am so happy that my 500th review is the 9th book I've read in the past 18 months by the singular Bec McMaster, and that it was a 5-star read featuring perhaps my favorite couple yet crafted by this author.Oh, to relive the sublime state that is Rosalind Fairchild and Sir Jasper Lynch together on a page. She, of the slick fighting moves and humanist motives no matter the cost, and he, of the cold blood, cold eyes and silent introspecti [...]


    3. 5 'tis buttons are gonna be the death of me' starsLynch speared a hand into her hair with a sharp hiss. “I should take my belt to you for this.” He spilled her back into the chair, his body driving hers into the soft cushions. His eyes were black again but she wasn’t afraid. Not this time. She knew exactly what sort of hunger she’d aroused in him.She was winning.“Would you like that, my lord?” She arched her back, sliding her hands up his chest.“Would you like me to bend over your [...]


    4. I'm such a sucker for this series. And no, I did not intend the pun damn steampunk vampire books


    5. McMaster has a particular talent with words. She weaves such detailed and intricate scenes that it seems almost impossible not to feel immerged in her world. Such rich, lush backgrounds and multi-faceted characters make her stand out amongst a sea of talented writers. Plot twists here and there only add that shock factor and don't forget the epic romances that she is able to create!Read this review in its entirety at Fresh Fiction


    6. A couple of days after I finished and I wonder if I can write a more coherent review (compared to my original review that only screams that I LOVE THIS).One thing for sure, I rated Heart of Iron with 5* because I loved the hero, I loved the heroine, and I loved the additional player that made the arc more complicated. HOWEVER, I must say that My Lady Quicksilver would definitely be the better book, and my FAVORITE yet of the series -- and why I also gave it five stars.What made this better? The [...]


    7. My Lady Quicksilver4.5 StarsRosalind Fairchild, aka Mercury, the leader of the humanist opposition, infiltrates the Nighthawks (the Echelon’s law enforcement arm) by posing as their commander’s new secretary in order to discover the whereabout of her younger brother. Sir Jasper Lynch, head of the Nighthawks, has suffered both discrimination and betrayal, but finds it impossible to resist the charms of the indomitable Mrs. Marberry despite his wariness and lack of trust. Once again, McMaster [...]


    8. Oh my! I loved this one! In my humble opinion, the best of the series. Sir Jasper Lynch, THE Nighthawk, was the type of hero I adore. He was strong, handsome, protective, and guarded his heart and his secrets until Rosa got to him. Rosa's secrets were more dangerous than his, and my heart broke a little more each time I saw them getting closer, knowing it would kill him when he finally found out.This had me captivated so much that it wasn't until I finished the book that I realized we didn't eve [...]


    9. 4.5-starsI think the series is best read in order, as the world building, characters and stories are mostly interconnected. Leader of the revolutionists, Rosa is a trained assassin fighting for the powerless, and the oppressed. Head of the Nighthawks ( chief of detectives for Echelon), Lynch is a strictly controlled, cunning hero who doesn’t necessarily play by the rules.He hunts her. She deceives him.Lynch: “I rarely sin, and when I do, it is completely intentional. I have no need of saving [...]


    10. Great writing, engaging characters and excellent take on the steampunk and the paranormal genres. This series just gets better and better.


    11. I loved this book! I mean hello, look at Rosalind she is super awesome. I thought she was definitely intriguing in the last book, and in this one she reveals herself. She is much more empathetic and feeling on the inside despite her frosty exterior when she plays Mercury, the humanist leader and criminal. (view spoiler)[She was trained as an assassin by her abusive blueblood father and fled with her brothers soon after losing her hand. (hide spoiler)]Jasper Lynch is the leader of the Nighthawks [...]


    12. I didn't mean to take nearly 3 years to get back to this series--it's one I've often thought about picking up again!--but I am BACK IN.McMaster's writing is SO HOT. I was worried at times about the lying aspect of the secret identity, but it all worked out okay for me.(Already started the novella that comes next!)


    13. In a desperate attempt to find her brother, Rosalind Fairchild decides the best way to discover what happened to him is to apply for the position of secretary to Sir Jasper Lynch (leader of the nighthawks). Entering the enemies den with only her wits to protect her, she quickly discovers that the black and white vision of the world she created is all shades of grayI have to admit, I was a little hesitant about this book veering away from previously featured main characters. I did miss that none [...]

    15. I LOVED it. I would read it again tomorrow.My Lady Quicksilver is book 3 in Bec McMaster's London Steampunk series. I simply love this series! First a rebel, then a shape shifter verwulfen, and now Ms. McMasters gives us a law man. This story is so delicious it made me giddy with happiness. What's not to like? You have two "outsiders" who represent the extremes of the system - one, a female rebel looking to disrupt the strict caste system, and the other, a man of law and order but not one of the [...]


    16. 7/4/2017Yeah, pretty much everything I said last time. I liked the politics on reread more than I did the first time around. But the whole seducing-him-as-Mercury-and-Rosa thing wasweird? And I kept being like "Uh. Lynch? You're meant to be this amazing investigator who solves all kinds of badass cases. And yet you can't tell that you're making out with the same woman?? I mean, I know he doesn't suspect that it's the same woman. But surely at SOME point, you'd be like "Hang on a second. This boo [...]


    17. Oh.I'm wearing my sad face at the moment because I don't want to be here giving a Bec McMaster book 2 stars. Especially directly after giving the last one I read - Heart of Iron - 5 stars. But I am so disappointed in this one!Essentially, everything I loved about books one and two - the sweet, tortured heroes, the feisty yet soft heroines, the perfectly executed buildup of sexual tension - was missing. Both Rosa and Lynch were such different types of characters to what McMaster normally delivers [...]


    18. WOW!!!I thought Blade and Honoria's story, but this one is even better! We met Rosalind in the previous book where she was the almost-villain. Here we find out why she did what she did in Heart of Iron. She's a mech and when I found out how she became it it was heart-breaking. She's hard, seemingly without feelings, but it is all an illusion. On the inside she's terrified, wounded and full of anger - a very justified anger.Jasper Lynch is The Nighthawk. A tightly reined blue blood, who's fightin [...]


    19. Amazing hero and heroine, truly. But the fact that the hero liked two women at the same time, despite the fact that they were one and the same in reality, felt too much like cheating to me. For this reason, I wasn't able to fully enjoy this otherwise wonderful book.


    20. I’ll admit itI wasn’t expecting to like this book mainly due to Rosalind’s role. Go figure, this would be my favorite in the series! Rosalind redeemed herself, causing my brain to rethink her deceptiveness. She was smart, sarcastic, and witty all of which made it hard not to like her. And then there’s Jasper. He was a wonderfully brooding and intelligent hero I easily found myself falling for! And the romance The romance was by far the sexiest of the series so far. Paired with witty bant [...]



    21. 4.5 stars - I really liked this enemies to lovers romance between the head of the Nighthawks (Blue Blood 'police') Lynch and the leader of the human resistance Rosalind (Rosa). They are both so controlled initially - him icily and her wickedly - that the tension between them (in both of her guises) is very intense as is the physical part of their relationship when they finally come together.It was interesting to see another part of the London Steampunk world in this story - with just a minor app [...]


    22. 3.5/5; 4 stars; B+I was pleased to see this book on Hoopla so had a chance to listen while doing yard work. Alison Larkin has a voice well suited to the slightly odd British voices. Anyway, this was a pretty good addition to the series. I was a bit baffled by Mercury's behaviour at times but it was fun to see Jasper Lynch meet his nemesis and find some happiness.


    23. Brilliant. Beautifully written. Gothic loveliness, sexy, brooding hero, and kickass heroine. What more could you ask for? Another win for Bec McMaster.


    24. I am really impressed with this alternative world Bec McMaster has created. I do not mind the plot holes so much. My rating has a lot to do with characterization. While the story is indeed enthralling, I cannot like the heroine, Rosalind. That, comes as no surprise to me. The hero Jasper Lynch is perfect. He is everything you want in a romance novel and not an asshole. So I think he would appeal to almost every female reader out there. I cannot find faults in him. But Rosalind is just not my typ [...]


    25. My Lady Quicksilver is the 3rd book in this series and I loved it! This series just continues to captivate and entertain me. This book centers around Jasper and Rosalind who are on opposite sides and consider each other enemies. Rosalind gets hired as Jasper's secretary and has to keep her identity a secret. Normally this would drive me crazy but it worked and worked well. It was believable and the "secret" just added a lot tension to a wonderful romance. Rosalind and Jasper are attracted to eac [...]


    26. Braine's Talk Supe reviewMY LADY QUICKSILVER is such a rich novel. To reiterate, it has great romance and tension but what I love about it the most is BMcMaster's all encompassing take on the world she created as a whole. Not only does she titillate her readers with bodice ripping romance, she also adds layers of social intrigue to make the plight of her characters believable. Rosa, Jasper and the other characters before them, dealt with equality among species, prejudice and a lot of politicking [...]


    27. Well, that was interesting. I didn't feel the same connection with Rosa as I did Lena and Honoria but I liked Lynch better then Blade, but not Will. Woo.So, you have Jasper Lynch, "rogue" blue blood, leader of the infamous "peacekeeping" Nighthawks and you have Rosa, also known as Mercury, leader of the humanist revolutionaries. Yeah, that'll turn out well.Lynch was hotter then a buttered biscuit and when he went all dark and possessive my pants almost caught fire. Rosa was sassy and strong but [...]


    28. After the “meh” of the first two books, I liked this one.What changed?a) Both the MCs spoke in (mostly) plain english.b) Finally, a heroine who's not a quivering virgin.c) Finally, a hero that's a bit educated.I sound like a pompous snob, I know. But I know what I want in my characters for them to be interesting in a romance. What can I say… I adore Hagrid, but I wouldn't want him starring in a romance novel :D
