Book Blurb – Her Majesty’s Milken by Nicki J. Markus

When part-time pilferer Sir Wesley Smythe seeks out famous housebreaker the Mayfair Milken, he little suspects he could soon be using his skills in service of the crown. 

Whitechapel resident Grace is the pluckiest thief in all of London. Her housebreaking feats in the heart of fashionable Mayfair have earned her the nickname the Mayfair Milken. All members of high society fear for their valuables—all except Sir Wesley Smythe.

Sir Wesley, one of London’s most eligible bachelors and a keen amateur mechanist, thrills at each new report of the Milken’s exploits. Prone to a little light pilfering himself, he longs to meet his idol, only to be shocked at the discovery that the Milken is a woman.

However, they are not the only thieves in the city, and when they uncover a plot to steal from Queen Victoria, they must work together if they wish to foil the criminal.

Her Majesty's Milken

Nicki on Her Inspiration—Her Majesty’s Milken

The initial idea for Her Majesty’s Milken came to me when I saw a call listed for tales about jewel thieves. My mind went straight to an historical setting, and a social divide, with a gentleman thief and a lower-class female burglar. To begin with, I was only thinking about jewels in general; however, once I decided it should be a Victorian-era piece, my thoughts to turned to Queen Victoria, and then to the Koh-I-Noor diamond. At that point, the rest of the plot slotted into place, along with the cogpunk elements you’ll find woven into the tale. To find out more, you’ll need to pick up a copy!
