I'm not a huge steampunk or western fan, but I really enjoyed this cross between the two. The book is about a prostitute with a heart of gold in the Pacific Northwest during the Washington territory days in the 1800s. It's mixed with a Jack the Ripper style murder mystery where women are found in alleyways flogged to death. It was nominated for the Gaylactic Spectrum Award in 2016 for positive LGBTQ content in Science Fiction/Fantasy.
