Romance in the Air is a charming alternate history game that places its focus on faux-Victorian salon parties of the upper class and the Great Game played by the empires of a bygone age. For those who enjoy the trappings of the steampunk genre at its least-obnoxious, Romance makes for an entertaining read and a fun push for a night or three of play. The game doesn't do anything terribly innovative in terms of the FATE ruleset (a subsystem is briefly described for political maneuvering between nations, but it's not terribly deep; I'd love to see it fleshed out a a later date).
The art's not bad but not incredible, the fiction pleasant but a little bland, the rules functional but not fantastic. It's exactly what you'd want from the concept and nothing more.
