Publisher's Summary

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

What made the experience of listening to Poison or Protect the most enjoyable?

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.

Have you listened to any of Suzanne Lavington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but I look forward to listening to more of her narrations.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I did listen to it all at one time.

Any additional comments?

Great Novella with a Gentleman & a Lady Assassin!

I'm not familiar with this author but I did enjoy this book. The main character is quite unique and different than anything I have previously read about. Lady Villentia is an assassin and she has an assignment to fulfill.

Captain Gavin is tasked with keeping someone safe then he encounters the dangerous Lady Villentia. He doesn't know who she is there to kill...

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

I'm looking forward to listening to more audiobooks by this talented author.
