Parlormaid seeks scientist! Lesbian Victorian romance featuring a maid bent on seducing an imprisoned cross-dressing inventor.

FEATHER DUSTER

Imogene Hale is a lowly parlourmaid with a soul-crushing secret. Seeking solace, she takes work at a local vampire hive, only to fall desperately in love with the amazing lady inventor imprisoned there.

LEATHER GOGGLES

Genevieve Lefoux is heartsick, lonely, brilliant, 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?

New York Times best selling author Gail Carriger presents this stand-alone lesbian romance set in her popular steampunk Parasolverse, full of class prejudice, elusive equations, and paranormal creatures taking tea. Look for surprise appearances from popular Parasol Protectorate characters and the occasional strategic application of cognac.

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 ladies in love from Gail? Try Competence. Meet Imogene and Genevieve again in Reticence.

Delicate Sensibilities?

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