In a steam-powered world, Miss Constance Haltwhistle is the last in a line of blue-blooded rogues. Selling firearms under her alias, the "Brass Queen," she has kept her baronial estate's coffers full. But when US spy J. F. Trusdale saves her from assassins, she's pulled into a search for a scientist with an invisibility serum. As royal foes create an invisible army to start a global war, Constance and Trusdale must learn to trust each other. If they don't, the world as they know it will disappear before their eyes.

"Chatsworth debuts with a fun, frothy blend of fantasy and romance . . . Fans of humorous fantasy and headstrong heroines will be delighted." --Publishers Weekly

"At times wondrous, at times romantic, and very often gut-bustingly funny." --David Farland, New York Times bestselling author of The Runelords series

Elizabeth Chatsworth is a British author and actor based in Connecticut. She loves to write of rogues, rebels, and renegades across time and space.

Gabi Coatsworth is an award-winning British-born writer and blogger, who has spent half her life living in the United States.

“Chatsworth builds an intriguing alternate world, filled with sharply amusing dialog and lively characters. VERDICT A delightful gaslamp fantasy that will please readers of Gail Carriger and Kate Locke.”

–Library Journal

“With a satisfying bite, this steampunk venture includes an insightful twist on the British Empire, making frequent nods to Queen Victoria’s bloodthirstiness and the era’s inequitable treatment of women. Best of all, Constance stays center stage: a feisty, lovable heroine who is capable of rescuing herself, thank you very much.”
