Review of Kiss of Steel by Bec McMaster
Kiss of Steel is a mix of fantasy, romance and steampunk. It has vampires and werewolves, albeit in altered forms, as well as mystery, danger, intrigue and, of course, romance.
The writing is excellent, the world is interesting, and the characters are layered. The story is gripping, the romance remains a part of the overall story rather than being the story, and the action is non-stop.
Definitely a book worth reading. Not your cookie-cutter vampire story!
I give it 4 stars.

As an aside, this book was recommended to me as an example of good steampunk. The steampunk parts seemed more background color than an integral part of the story. If steampunk if the main thing you are looking for, I would say keep looking.
