Her Sky Cowboy by Beth Ciotta

Amelia Darcy has no interest in the titles of Victorian London's eligible bachelors. Her heart belongs to the sky and the dirigibles of brass and steel that swoop over Big Ben. But after her inventor father's untimely death, Amelia and her brothers are left with scrap metal --and not a penny to their names.


But then a contest in celebration of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee is announced. The prize: fame and fortune to whomever discovers an invention of historical significance. Amelia sets out across Europe with her flying kitecycle in search of Leonardo da Vinci's lost inventions, when a run-in with sky pirates forces her into the arms of Tucker Gentry, a handsome airship captain with a roguish reputation.


Can she trust the Sky Cowboy and his band of outlaws--or should she take wind while she can?
