Overview

Parlormaid seeks scientist!

From New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger comes a delightful lesbian Victorian romance featuring a maid bent on seducing an imprisoned cross-dressing inventor.

FEATHER DUSTER

Imogene Hale is a lowly parlormaid with a soul-crushing secret. Desperate to understand her own desires, she takes work at a local vampire hive, only to fall in love with the amazing lady inventor the vampires have imprisoned in their potting shed.

LEATHER GOGGLES

Genevieve Lefoux is lonely, brilliant, and French. Obsessed with her cogs and devices she refuses to risk her heart. With culture, class, and the scientist herself set against the match, can Imogene and her duster win Genevieve's love, or will the vampires suck both of them dry?

"Carriger excels at wry humor and clever phrasing, and her ensemble cast is thoroughly charming and satisfyingly diverse. There's a genuine sense of whimsy and fun running throughout this story, making it a treat for fans of the series." ~ Publishers Weekly (Competence)

Set in Carriger's popular steampunk Parasolverse, this story is full of class prejudice, elusive equations, and paranormal creatures taking tea. Perfect for those who enjoy Jenny Frame or Sarah Waters only bonus light-hearted urban fantasy. If Jane Austen dated Gentlemen Jack this charming stand-alone romance would be it.

Supernatural Society stories can be read in any order, but if you're a stickler, this book falls in between the Parasol Protectorate series and the Custard Protocol series. Want more Sapphic ladies from Gail? Try Competence. Meet Imogene and Genevieve again in Reticence.

About the Author

Ms. Carriger began writing in order to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning. Ms. Carriger then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She now resides in the Colonies, surrounded by a harem of Armenian lovers, where she insists on tea imported directly from London and cats that pee into toilets. She is fond of teeny tiny hats and tropical fruit.
