Renee Michaels, "Sleight of Hand" (from Carnal Machines: Steampunk Erotica)
Carnal Machines: Steampunk Erotica is a collection of erotic short stories with steampunk settings.

"Sleight of Hand" by Renee Michaels, is the third story in this collection. The story has the interesting quality of being monogamous and confrontational all at the same time, when a skilled thief and her estranged mad inventor husband have a fateful meeting. The dialog is quick, witty, and brings a smile to the face; the sex is wonderfully written and delightfully cute, and the resolution well worth the effort. The story does feature more than a hint of (initial) non-consensuality, which may be triggery, but so far this has been the best of the bunch.
