Her Own Devices free pdf Book two in the bestselling Magnificent Devices steampunk series! Escaped lunatics, lost children, vengeful lords, and love. Really, the situation is becoming quite impossible. Lady Claire Trevelyan, left alone after the Arabian Bubble financial disaster claims home and family, now leads the cleverest group of gamblers and reformed cutpurses in the London underworld. She discovers that the lightning rifle she took from a rival gang contains a unique source of energy-and its inventor has been locked up in Bedlam by powerful men in order to suppress its very existence. In order for Lady Claire to understand it, she must consult with the mad scientist ... even if it means breaking her out of the most frightening institution in London. Then, in a moment of madness, she becomes engaged to Lord James Selwyn, who knows nothing of her double life. He expects her to be decorative and the perfect hostess to the rich investors interested in his and Andrew Malvern's Kinetick Carbonator. But how can the engagement survive his insistence on withholding the patent for her work? And how can Andrew stand by and watch Claire marry someone she does not love? "This is one of those books that gets it right. Through dialogue, through actions, through carefully described settings, through attitudes and appropriate, non-overdone references, we have a great sense of time and place that's really immersive and fun." -Fangs for the Fantasy: The latest in urban fantasy from a social justice perspective

About Shelley Adina

RITA Award(r) winning author and Christy finalist Shelley Adina wrote her first novel when she was 13. The literary publisher to whom it was sent rejected it, but he did say she knew how to tell a story. That was enough to keep her going through the rest of her adolescence, a career, a move to another country, an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction, and countless manuscript pages. Shelley is the author of twenty-four novels published by Harlequin, Time/Warner, and Hachette Book Group, and several more published by Moonshell Books, Inc., her own independent press. Shelley is a world traveler who loves to imagine what might have been. Between books, she loves playing the piano and Celtic harp, making period costumes, quilting, and spoiling her flock of rescued chickens.
