A steampunk lesbian romance featuring a maid bent on seducing a brilliant scientist who’s too brokenhearted to notice. Or is she?

Imogene Hale is a lowly parlourmaid with a soul-crushing secret. Seeking solace, she takes work at a local hive, only to fall desperately in love with the amazing lady inventor the vampires are keeping in the potting shed. Genevieve Lefoux is heartsick, lonely, and French. With culture, class, and the lady herself set against the match, can Imogene and her duster overcome all odds and win Genevieve’s heart, or will the vampires suck both of them dry?

This is a stand-alone LBGTQ sweet romance set in Gail Carriger’s Parasolverse, full of class prejudice, elusive equations, and paranormal creatures taking tea. Look for surprise appearances from popular Parasolverse characters and the occasional strategic application of cognac. Supernatural Society novellas can be read in any order.

Delicate Sensibilities? This story contains women pleasing women and ladies who know what they want and pursue it, sometimes in exquisite detail.

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.

A quick love story between a country girl who feels out of place because of her sexuality and an inventor indentured to the local vampire clan. The inventor doubts her ability to love after the loss of her last partner but so long as there is hope the mathmatically gifted young girl who desire her will not lose faith in their ability to build a life together. Some characters from the Proctectorate series make an appearance but the storyworks as a standalone.

Spectacular! I would expect nothing less of Gail Carriger. You get some insight into Madame Lefoux's character as well as meeting the new (and adorable!) Imogene. A must read, don't miss it!

Such an amazing book. I love Genevieve. Would love to see more of her, and that wicker chicken.

All of her stories deserve 5 stars. The characters are a riot and so well thought out. I love reading her books. Besides, what's better than steampunk, supernaturals, and tea?

Omigod, so good. So you're THINKING you might read this book? You should. You might read it twice. You'll probably dog-ear the pages. #SorryNotSorry

A rollicking good read. Gail Carriger never fails to deliver great reads. Here she's offered up a slice of romance with paranormal, steam punk, LGBTQ mixed in. Added snark for seasoning caps it off. A delightful read.
