Genres: Fantasy , Fiction , Historical Fiction , Paranormal , Romance , Science Fiction

Mitch Carter’s a hard man. He’s clawed his way up from Buffalo’s gutter through a combination of ruthlessness and stark loyalty to become the King of Prospect Avenue. But when he sees lovely Tessa Verdun, a crack appears in his tough veneer. He wants her for his wife even if making it happen requires coercion, dirty dealing, and a touch of blackmail.

Mitch is the last man Tessa would choose to wed, but he’s forced her into marriage, even though she’s ready to give her heart to another man. Now he tries to win her with lavish gifts and watches her with veiled passion in his eyes. But when everyone else turns against Tessa, it’s Mitch who’s there offering strength. And when vying factions in the city place Tessa in danger, it’s Mitch for whom she longs, though loving such a man is certainly a tough prospect.

Since we read Last Orders an earlier novel in the Steampunk Adventure series–and devoured it in one sitting–we were interested in seeing if author Strickland would create an intriguing, alluring hero to beat the last one. She did not disappoint us. In fact, Mitch Carter now tops our list for Hero to be Emulated. He is tough, resolute and absolutely one of those men women want to take home and nurture–in all ways possible. Tessa holds her own with him–with unbeatable motivation–and is a most honorable match for this man. Well done, Ms. Strickland!
On a scale of 1-5, Tough Prospects earns a 6.
