A Lady of Resources: A steampunk adventure novel by Shelley Adina

Book 5 in the Magnificent Devices series!

You can choose your friends, but you cannot choose your family ... or can you?

Now sixteen, the twins Lizzie and Maggie are educated young ladies who have not been called "the Mopsies" in years ... except by their guardian, Lady Claire Trevelyan. With the happy prospect of choosing their own future, the girls can leave their dodgy past behind, and Lizzie can bury her deepest childhood memories where they can do no harm. 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. Lizzie must decide whether her true family is the one she was born to ... or the one she chose that long-ago day when the Lady of Devices steamed into their lives ...

About the Author

RITA Award® 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 ado-lescence, 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 pub-lished 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 play-ing the piano and Celtic harp, making period cos-tumes, quilting, and spoiling her flock of rescued chickens.
