Iron and Hemlock (Iron & Hemlock #1) by Autumn Dawn


Life can change in the blink of an eye.

It was just an ordinary day when lightning struck and sent Jordan spinning back in time. Trapped in Victorian England, practical Jordan will have to abandon her disbelief in magic. Pursued by a sexy golden griffin and a dark fae who wants her blood, she just might rediscover the thrill of falling in love.

You think you're having a bad day? While crossing a Spokane street a car tries to run Jordon down and she is saved - at least she thinks she's saved - by a bolt of lightning which transports her to an empty road in the midst of a massive storm. Looking around she sees only spooky woods and a pair of creaking gates guarded by stone gargoyles. Gargoyles who blink at her... Add in the griffin on the lawn battling a banshee, the pooka who tries to carry her off and she knows she's not in Kansas anymore. And that's before she meets the very naked Lord Griffin...

Iron and Hemlock is a short story so it doesn't have the time to develop the depths of character and plot that her novels do. Wisely she spends her time with the main characters - just introducing the other characters with short sketches. I'm sure we'll see more of them in future stories. The plot moves right along giving glimpses of the backstory without overwhelming the reader with details.

Sometimes you get lucky and find a new author. I've read her No Words Alone and When Sparks Fly as well as The White Rabbit and Something Wild This Way Comes. I've enjoyed them all.
