Publisher's Summary

Guilty of an indiscretion? Time to marry a werewolf.

New York Times best-selling author Gail Carriger brings you a charming stand-alone story set in her wildly popular Parasolverse. Described as: Georgette Heyer goes to the wolves. 

Werewolves

The monsters left Faith ruined in the eyes of society, so now they're her only option. Rejected by her family, 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. 

Americans

Backward heathens with no culture, Major Channing has never had time for any of them. But there's something special about Faith. Channing finds himself fighting to prove himself and defend his species. But this werewolf has good reason not to trust human women. 

Even if they learn to love, can either of them forgive?

From the best-selling author of the Parasol Protectorate series. Look out for appearances from favorite characters and the serious consequences of unwarranted geology. 

A Note on Chronology

The Claw & Courtship novellas can be heard in any order. This book can be enjoyed without having heard any of Gail's other works. Set in the spring of 1896, this story occurs after events chronicled in Romancing the Werewolf.

Another Great Tale

I love the stories in this world created so well and tonight kept listening very late into the night to see how it played out. I did not want to wait until the next day. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful imaginative stories.

Entertaining

Wonderful to see Channing find Love. Heartbreaking to learn both pursuer and pursued are hiding such devastating secrets from their pasts. I enjoyed the narrator, but did not like the echoey effect they used to show when someone was thinking a monologue or comment instead of speaking it. Neat idea, but annoying in practice.

Witty, funny and delightful

If you like Carriger's work you'll like this. Same funny wit, hilarious banter and great characters. You don't need to read the other novels in her series, but previous knowledge makes the enjoyment all the richer. Narrator is good, but there's some timing issues with the inner dialogue effects towards the end, hence the three stars. Otherwise, a highly enjoyable book.

A miss

Normally I LOVE Gail Carriger. But this one was...pretty bad. I'm actually doubting if Carriger actually wrote it. The prose was purple, the love scenes were cringeworthy, and the romance fell flat. Additionally, the production did this odd tinny effect anytime a character had a "thought," and it was very distracting.

I really can't recommend Carriger enough, but skip this one.

My favorite Gail Book

I have loved the Parasol Protectorate series and all the other books that have come with it. Imagine my surprise when I was casually reading this and fell madly in love. I then ran out and bought the audiobook and between the two I’ve listened/read at least 30 times in recent months. It’s just that good.

Impressed as always

Channing was not one of my favorite characters in the Parasol-verse so I wasn’t entirely sure I’d like this book. I should know better by now that Ms. Carriger will not let me down. Lovely book. Faith is the perfect foil for Channing. Narrator pronounced a few things differently than other books in the series, which annoys me, but that’s more of a personal pet peeve than a criticism of the narrator.

Wit, wisdom and werewolf shenanigans: perfect mix

This is another gorgeous notch is Ms. Carriger's belt (pardon the pun). It's a surprisingly meaningful story that takes one of the most amusingly cantankerous characters in her Victorian-period books, and gently redeems him through love, banter, and the powerful support of his pack. His new lady is a perfect match for him. All this is set against the backdrop of Ms. Carriger's perfectly zany world and its mix of steampunk zaniness and Victorian-era morales (which is its own craziness in modern eyes.) The reader underlined and emphasized all these emotions beautifully, bringing the story to life.
I loved it!

Great read but not my favorite narration

I LOVE Gail Carriger and the world of the parasol protectorate and so after listening to so many books it’s hard to listen to names and phrases common to other books in the world being mispronounced. Otherwise I loved the story!

Loved This

It has been a while since I enjoyed the Protectorate series and I was happy to be back in that world. Major Changing is a growly, reluctant suitor but he meets his match in Faith. She is a bit of an independent, strong American who had been rejected by her family and sent to London to capture a werewolf mate if she can.
The character interaction is fun especially with the secondary characters pushing things along.
I enjoyed when these two revealed their vulnerabilities and accepted each other's strengths.
I like this author and recommend her werewolf series for the light escape and romance they share.
Audio Notes: Emma Newman does a fine job with the narration. She gives each character their appropriate voice and personality. There are some 'thought asides' presented in a different tone, which I found acceptable once I realized what it was. I do recommend this as a fun audio experienced.

Major Channing!!

I enjoyed the Major Channing character in the previous series, its going to be fun to have Ms Carriger fully develop his personality and story line. This book did not disappoint, I am looking forward to more! Its also great to hear more about Biffy and Lyle! Keep creating!
