Can one gentle Highland soldier woo Victorian London's most scandalous lady assassin, or will they both be destroyed in the attempt?
New York Times best-selling author Gail Carriger presents a stand-alone romance novella set in her popular steampunk universe full of manners, spies, and dainty sandwiches.
Lady Preshea Villentia, the Mourning Star, has four dead husbands and a nasty reputation. Fortunately, she looks fabulous in black. What society doesn't know is that all her husbands were marked for death by Preshea's employer. And Preshea has one final assignment.
It was supposed to be easy, a house party with minimal bloodshed. Preshea hadn't anticipated Captain Gavin Ruthven - massive, Scottish, quietly irresistible, and...working for the enemy. In a battle of wits, Preshea may risk her own heart - a terrifying prospect, as she never knew she had one.
Delicate sensibilities? Contains men pleasing women, and ladies who know what they want and ask for it, sometimes in detail. May also contain plaid, appearances from dandy vampires, and the strategic application of leather gloves.

Great first listen to both author and narrator
This was both a good book and a good narrator to go with it. The story was interesting and kept me wanting to find out what was going to happen. The narrator has a great voice and did a fine job telling the story.
No I haven't but I look forward to listening to more of her narrations.
Yes, and I did listen to it all at one time.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Poison or Protect by Gail Carriger is a great read. This is a standalone romance that was set in Gail's steampunk universe. Lady Preshea Villentia is an assassin on one final assignment. This was a good read.
