Trilogy description from publisher's site:
In K.H. Koehler's post-apocalyptic/ string-bean western/ science-fiction/ steampunk/ action-adventure/ romantic suspense/ sexy pirate trilogy, a bounty hunter named Wild Alice West struggles to survive in a vast desert known as the Skillet, which has no tolerance for women trying to do a “man’s job.”

Though fiercely independent, Alice recognizes that she needs a front man to give herself legitimacy in her chosen career, and after weeks of looking around New Hope, she thinks she’s found the perfect partner in Mr. Treen, who has his own dark secrets.

Book 1 Description from Horror Mall:
All “Wild” Alice West wants is to be a respected bounty hunter, and make some legitimate cash along the way. But in the post-apocalyptic world of the Skillet, there is no room for a woman doing a “man’s job.”

Enter Mr. Treen. Alice believes that by hiring the albino card sharp, she can give her business the legitimacy it needs. But Mr. Treen has his own secrets—some of them dark. And once these misfits get together, you can be sure the Skillet will never be the same again.
