Description

Narrated by the wonderful Emma Newman, this is Gail Carriger's first steampunk lesbian romance featuring a maid bent on seducing a brilliant cross-dressing scientist who's too brokenhearted to notice. Or is she?

Imogene Hale is a lowly parlor maid 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.

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

Supernatural Society novellas can be consumed in any order. Look for surprise appearances from popular characters and the occasional strategic application of cognac.

Entirely delightful f/f romance!

I love the way this author does romance. Intriguing characters, quirky and vivid turns of phrase (I particularly enjoyed "gertuding"), humor, and just enough detail in danger or dishabille to titillate and make the heart pound.

I am most pleased that my favorite hat making inventor finally has someone to love her properly. If you're already a fan of the other books in this universe then you will probably enjoy this bit of dandelion fluff quite as much as the rest. You'll definitely feel more warmly disposed toward a certain wicker chicken.

Warning: do not read if a couple ladies getting naked and lovingly frisky with each other makes you uncomfortable. Gail Carriger has many other books of a more heteronormative and less descriptive bent, if that's your fancy.

A voice like silk.

I've been an avid fan of all things Parasol since I was given the first Parasol Protectorate novel years ago. I'm overjoyed to see LGBT themes in her novels, and now, with this story a fantastic f/f story.
When listening to an audio book, the narrator is so important. I've heard books that were good, but the narrator was not and it ruined the experience.
This narrator was prefect! Her voice was soothing and silken. I could listen to her read almost anything.

Loved it!

I really enjoyed this book. Its about one of my favorite characters in the Parasol universe, and I loved to meet her again.
This is a romance book, and I loved the story and the drama. It is also really really funny, as is all Gail Carrigers book.
Emma Newman did a wonderful job, and she is always a pleasure to listen too. Loved the French accent!!

I love listening to French accents!

Even if it's fake, she sounds so silky! Most books would have a side character have such an amusing accent, but a main character in a romance novella with the accent of the language of love? I can listen to this for hours! Emma Newman can really pull it off and the storyline is just great! Definitely worth it for me.

A beautiful love story

This story has werewolves, vampires, math and two women falling in love. It’s clever, witty and charming. Listen to it, do

Greater the second time around!

I knew I loved the story already, this being my second time going through it. But the reader's performance made the story coming alive in entirely different way! Both my interpretation reading it and her vocal presence reciting it created two wonderfully unique experiences, each great in its own way. The romance was sweet, Imogene really shined through Emma this time around just as strongly, and Genevieve's charms showed through just as well. Another job well done!

Hooray for Madame Lefoux

Finally, Madame Lefoux has the opportunity for happiness. The story touches on Genevieve and Alexia’s relationship, how Woolsey Castle fared under the vampires overseeing, and introduces another wonderfully strong but not one dimensional character. It was rather fun to play “find the character” as several former denizens of Carriger’s novels make appearances. Anyone who loved the original Soulless series and is open to the many forms of love will enjoy the book.

Romancing the Reader

I’ve only recently discovered the joy that is Gail Carriger and her books, and this one by far is my favorite.
Finding content with such well done sapphic leanings is very difficult, and a lot of the time it comes across in a way more suited for the male gaze. The way Gail presented these two wlw characters made it feel as if I were falling in love.
The writing is beautiful, clever and authentic at every turn. Imogene is as easy to love as Geniveve is enigmatic and It left me breathless and wanting more. My only qualm with this book is that it’s a stand alone novel.

The Inventor and the Maid

There are other things in life besides octopuses, even if they can destroy London.

A wonderful love story for inventor Genevieve Lefoux, finally. What is it about a French Maid's outfit that drives partners wild?

Romantically lovely

I wasn’t sure what I was getting into and was tentative after the lengthy disclaimer at the start, but the lovely story and beautiful narration left me on the edge of my seat and enjoyed the interplay of the characters from the other series.
