Matthew Goddard is a lonely watchmaker in 1840 New England. One fateful day, he discovers the lover of his dreams in a dusty corner of the local general store—Isabel, a bisque porcelain mannequin head with mesmerizing, smoky blue eyes. When Matthew invites her to come live with him, she eagerly “accepts.” The couple embarks on a lust-filled affair, one fueled by Matthew’s wild imagination. In order to provide Isabel with a brass body and pretty clothes, he begins a secret side business selling clockwork sex toys to his wealthy female customers. Danger, however, threatens their idyllic romance when a disgruntled customer exposes Matthew’s forbidden business to the townspeople. Despite the growing menace, Matthew will stop at nothing in order to save his soul mate—and protect their love.

Reader Alert!
Matthew Goddard’s lover Isabel may be a clockwork automaton, but that doesn’t prevent them from enjoying forbidden, uninhibited sex at every opportunity.

To My Readers:
On the surface, The Watchmaker’s Lady is a deeply sensual tale about a forbidden affair between a man and his Victorian sex doll. But if you dig a little deeper beneath the kink, you’ll discover a heartwarming romance between two soul mates who manage to find each other—and stay together—despite overwhelming odds.

The Watchmaker’s Lady” by Heather Massey is RT’s Elisa's suggestion. She fought for this book to win a spot on the list because it was so far off the beaten path but remained “delightfully unusual” in the steamiest of sense.

RT Rating

With this shockingly unconventional plot, the author puts a historical steampunk spin on the sex doll. Readers will be surprised and delighted by the deep emotion and stunning sensuality in this story.

Watchmaker Matthew Goddard has never had a relationship with a woman, and he lives alone. This changes when he finds a mannequin head on its way to the trash heap. Matthew imagines that he can converse with the porcelain head, whom he calls Isabel. He builds her an automated body out of metal and gears, and immediately engages in an emotional and physical affair with his creation, forgetting that “she” is an inanimate object. He will do anything to keep her safe, but when angry townspeople come after Matthew, unbelievably, it is Isabel who saves him. (REDSAGE.COM, dl $2.50)
