How To Marry A Werewolf: A Claw & Courtship Novella
Guilty of an indiscretion? Time to marry a werewolf.
New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger brings you a charming stand alone story set in her popular Parasolverse.
The monsters left Faith ruined in the eyes of society, so now they're her only option. Faith crosses the Atlantic, looking for a marriage of convenience and revenge. But things are done differently in London...
Werewolves are civilized. At least they pretend to be.
Backward heathens with no culture, Major Channing has never had time for them. But there's something special about Faith. Channing finds himself fighting to defend his species and his honor (what little he has left). But this werewolf has good reason not to trust human women.
Even if they learn to love, can either of them forgive?
"This intoxicatingly witty parody will appeal to a wide cross-section of romance, fantasy and steampunk fans." ~ Publishers Weekly, starred review (Soulless)
Ilona Andrews meets Georgette Heyer in this charming romantic comedy from the author of the Parasol Protectorate books. Look out for appearances from favorite characters and the serious consequences of unwarranted geology. Perfect for fans of Kelly Armstrong, Shelly Laurenston, or Richelle Mead.

Great story for a familiar character
This was a fun story for a grumpy character we’ve come to love. It was an enjoyable read from start to finish.
Channing and Faith are perfect for each other
Channing Channing of the Chesterfield Channing is on of those characters in the Parasol universe that is misunderstood. Faith starts out seeing him the same way as everyone else does but over the course of the story she, and by extension we, see him as the devoted loving man he really is.
Worth the Read!
Well-crafted and immersive world that also still feels like very grounded in Victorian manners. Like all of Carriger’s other books, it’s the right amount of banter and love story.
