"With her orphaned charges, Lady Claire Trevelyan joins the Earl of Dunsmuir's family on an airship voyage to the Americas. If she can stay out of Lord James Selwyn's way until her eighteenth birthday, she will be of age and cannot be forced into marriage. What she doesn't know is that Lord James is in the Americas, too, with Andrew Malvern closing in on him - and the wonderful device he stole. But when a storm cripples the airship and air pirates swoop in like carrion birds, Claire and the children must live by their wits to make their way across a harsh landscape. Will Andrew ever see her again and right the wrong he believes he has done? Will Lord James succeed in his monumental thievery? And how exactly does Rosie the chicken evade the soup pot?"--Page 4 of cover

"Lady Claire Trevelyan had been looking forward to glittering balls, congenial society, and relief from pursuit during her stay with Lord and Lady Dunsmuir in the Canadas. Well, perhaps not entirely. Being pursued by a handsome airship captain is rather diverting, especially when it appears her erstwhile employer, Andrew Malvern, is becoming much too distracted by a certain blond mechanic. But a shot fired in the night puts an end to such diversions, and instead plunges her and her orphaned band of children into a fight for their very survival. Between secret conversations at the highest levels of society and skullduggery in the diamond mines, Claire must discover who is behind a series of alarming attempts on her friends' lives-- before her mother is compelled to make funeral arrangements yet again"--Page 4 of cover

Upon her graduation from school, Lizzie is awarded an enormous honor--but can she pay the price? Is she ready to be separated from Maggie and become the woman she believes she was meant to be--or will old habits tempt her into defiance and plunge her into disaster? On a dare, Lizzie picks the wrong man's pocket and nearly loses her life. But these frightening events bear unexpected fruit: The dream Lizzie holds closest to her heart comes true in a most unexpected way. But this dream, too, comes with a price.

Book 6 in the Magnificent Devices steampunk series! You can choose your friends, but you cannot choose your family ... or can you? Under normal circumstances, Maggie and Lizzie would be delighted to meet their long-lost relatives and be reunited with those who had believed them dead, but when are the Mopsies' circumstances ever to be considered normal? With her half-brother Claude Seacombe, Lizzie travels to Cornwall to meet her mother's parents. Maggie goes along, too, since she is part of the family ... or so one might assume. But the more time she spends in her grandparents' clifftop mansion, the more she realizes that something is not right, and the events surrounding her own mother's death are more mysterious--and dangerous--than anyone alive suspects. For an old nemesis is preying on the weak and proud, and no matter how well dressed or well educated a young lady might be, she cannot stand by and watch evil destroy a beloved cousin's future. Maggie must straighten her spine and plunge into danger for Lizzie's sake ... and prove that no matter the name she bears, she is first and foremost what the Lady of Devices believes her to be ... a lady of spirit.--Publisher's description

"How much must one sacrifice for the sake of friendship? Lady Claire Trevelyan has had to deal with betrayal before, in small ways and large.

When she learns that Gloria is missing, she has no choice but to follow her heart and attempt to find the missing heiress. But the decisions of the heart do not sit well with the gentlemen in her life, who had every reason to believe she planned to settle down at last - and suddenly Claire finds herself without a career, a fiancé, or the confidence in her own abilities that has carried her this far. ... Will the bond of friendship that has brought Claire and the flock together be the very thing that separates them for good? Or will love tip the balance and prove that what really defines a gentleman of means is none other than a lady of resources?"--Page 4 of cover

With an innocent friend's unexpected return and a pair of secret agents who would prefer that women not become involved --- the situation clearly calls for the inner resources of a lady of integrity"--Page 4 of cover
Devices brightly shining : a steampunk Christmas novella by Shelley Adina( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Book nine of the Magnificent Devices series-a short Christmas sugarplum! On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, Dreadful relations, high expectations, And a sudden urge to pull up ropes and flee. It is the event of the season-on Twelfth Night, the Dunsmuirs have invited the cream of London society to celebrate the marriage of Lady Claire and Andrew Malvern at a reception to which the Prince Consort himself is expected. Captain Ian Hollys brings his fiancée Alice Chalmers to London to attend and to meet his family-people who cannot see past her flight boots to the woman who stands by his side as an equal. While adjusting to life as a newlywed, seeing to her business affairs, and preparing the Mopsies to return to school in Munich, Lady Claire is settling into her new life with joy. When two young cousins of Gloria Meriwether-Astor arrive in London, the inhabitants of Carrick House are happy to welcome them. Sydney and Hugh Meriwether-Astor are completing a world tour, and the Dunsmuirs' ball is just the thing to cap it off in splendid fashion. But Maggie learns that Sydney has his own plans for the family business-and they don't include cutting off the supply of arms to the Royal Kingdom of Spain and the Californias, as Gloria is determined to do. It's time for someone with a spine, an airship of her own, and reasons to put fields of air between herself and decisions about her future to pull up ropes and warn Gloria that betrayal is closer than she thinks ... "It's another element I love about these books; from Claire to Gloria to Alice to Lizzie and Maggie to Lady Dunsmuir, the women in this series generally like and respect each other. Other women are not required to be lesser-weaker, more cowardly, less intelligent-in order for Claire to be awesome. She is not an exceptional woman, she is an awesome woman among awesome women." -Fangs for the Fantasy: The latest in urban fantasy from a social justice perspective"--Publisher's description

Immortal faith : a novel of vampires and unholy love by Shelley Adina( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In the small, Old Order Mennonite community of Mitternacht, Iowa, the people pray that God will deliver them from evil. They should have been more specific. Sophia Brucker is on the threshold of womanhood, standing in the door between her religion's way of life and the possibilities of the world outside. She is also torn between two young men: David Fischer, whom she has known since childhood, and Gabriel Langford, the new arrival. In a community that only grows when people are born into it, a convert--young, single, and male--is the most exciting thing that has happened in years. When Sophia's uncle is found dead in the barn with his throat slashed and bitten, the community grieves--except Sophia, who has been abused by him for years. And when the local mean girl is killed the same way, Sophia hardly dares to voice what she suspects: that only the worst among them are being weeded out. Under the elders' approving eyes, it seems Gabriel is dedicated to worshipping God. But his methods may not stand up to too close a scrutiny... and Sophia is getting very close indeed.--Back cover
