New Book Alert!

Cinder and the Smoke is officially available at ebook sellers everywhere! (although if you purchased it through the publisher’s website or my store, I get a fraction more money, so choose your purchase wisely ;D).

In nineteenth century New York, safes aren’t living up to their name. A thief so wily, so impossible to capture the police call her “the Smoke,” has been targeting the wealthy. In reality, the Smoke is a woman named Kezia Cyr, a woman born in prison, stolen from her mother, and raised by runaways and pickpockets. When her emotions cause a job to blow up in her face, Kezia’s adoptive family scatters, and she is left to avenge those she’s lost.

The Smoke may finally meet her match in Pinkerton Agent Shelby Button, who earned the moniker “Cinder” for running into a burning building to capture a criminal. Button finds Kezia’s trail and refuses to let her prey go without a fight.

With a decade-old murder to avenge, Kezia will stop at nothing to correct her past mistakes, and Agent Button is willing to trek across the country to bring the phantom Smoke to justice once and for all.

This one has everything: lesbians, bisexuals, a crossdressing thief with a heart of gold, a female boxer in 1880s New York City, an obsessed Pinkerton detective, and a milk bottle that is used in a way that is definitely not recommended by the dairy company.
