Teaser Tuesday: The Girl With the Iron Touch {23}

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Title: The Girl With the Iron Touch (Steampunk Chronicles #3) 
Author: Kady Cross
Release date: May 28, 2013
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pages: 384
In 1897 London, something not quite human is about to awaken.

When mechanical genius Emily is kidnapped by rogue automatons, Finley Jayne and her fellow misfits fear the worst. What's left of their archenemy, The Machinist, hungers to be resurrected, and Emily must transplant his consciousness into one of his automatons—or forfeit her friends' lives.

With Griffin being mysteriously tormented by the Aether, the young duke's sanity is close to the breaking point. Seeking help, Finley turns to Jack Dandy, but trusting the master criminal is as dangerous as controlling her dark side. When Jack kisses her, Finley must finally confront her true feelings for him...and for Griffin.

Meanwhile, Sam is searching everywhere for Emily, from Whitechapel's desolate alleyways to Mayfair's elegant mansions. He would walk into hell for her, but the choice she must make will test them more than they could imagine.

To save those she cares about, Emily must confront The Machinist's ultimate creation—an automaton more human than machine. And if she's to have any chance at triumphing, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has...
My teaser, from 52% in the egalley:
And then tossing frustration and vexation to the wind, she threw her arms around his neck and kissed him. That was the end of any and all conversation.
I RESISTED LOOKING AT WHO SHE IS KISSING. EEEEEEE. I'm so sad to see the end of this series, since it was one of the first I began as a blogger. It's hard to believe I've been blogging long enough to see entire series through. Whew! If you leave me a link to your post I am definitely going to be visiting back, it just won't be until late in the day today since I'll be at work till 5. Have a lovely Tuesday!
