A novelette of steampunk and magic, from one of the minds behind the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences.
Lucinda is a witch in a alternative Victorian London, where being a witch is a death sentence. Her coven harnesses sensuality and passion to make magic, and that is a crime according to the Association of Magicians. Women with control of sex and magic are too dangerous to tolerate. So Lucinda and her coven live in secret. That is until she meets a young American magician, and their attraction cannot be denied, but they have always been taught such a thing can never be.
Rules however do not apply to the young and powerful. Lucinda and Theo find out just how far they are prepared to go.
