More About Her Sky Cowboy by Beth Ciotta
 
 
 
Overview
Amelia Darcy has no interest in marrying well. Her heart belongs to the sky and the dirigibles of brass and steel that swoop over Victorian England. But when her father, an eccentric inventor, dies, the Darcy siblings are left with scrap metal and not a penny to their names. Their only hope to save the family name and fortune is to embark on a contest to discover an invention of historical importance in honor of Queen Victoria.

Armed with only her father s stories of a forgotten da Vinci workshop, a mechanically enhanced falcon, and an Italian cook, Amelia takes flight for Florence, Italy. But her quest is altered when her kitecycle crashes into the air ship of ex Air Marshal and scandalous dime novel hero Tucker Gentry.

Challenged by political unrest, a devious sky pirate, and their own sizzling attraction, Amelia and Tuck are dragged into an international conspiracy that could change the course of history again."

Contemporary romance author Ciotta’s first steampunk series blasts off with this exhilarating riff on bodice-ripping romance, hurling 20th-century technology into an alternate Victorian England. Spunky airship mechanic Amelia Darcy is smitten with an obsession for flight and a longtime yen for Tucker Gentry, the Sky Cowboy, an American penny-dreadful antihero of “notorious and scandalous reputation.” After Amelia’s father blows himself and the family fortune to smithereens while attempting to travel to the moon, Amelia abandons her tizzied mother, leaps upon her homemade kitecycle, and tears off to win a hefty scientific prize. She promptly crashes into an encounter with Tucker. The two pursue an airborne quest for Leonardo da Vinci’s fabled ornithopter while fending off sky pirates employed by dastardly and lascivious Lord Bingham, cavorting through a hectic skytown pubcrawl, and putting lovemaking at the top of Amelia’s “must-do-or-die” list. With Darcy twins Jules and Simon poised for their own adventures, Ciotta (the Cupcake Club books) has the start of a delectable series. Agent: Amy Moore-Benson, AMB Literary Management. (Nov.)
