My darling Gentle Reader!
I’ve new cover art for you to see today. I known, I know, it seems like there have been a lot of covers on the blog recently.
But I have a lot of books coming out this year, so there’s a lot to reveal.
As always the Chirrup got to see this first, but here it is for the wide world to consume:

I love this cover. It’s a bit of a change for me, except that as the first in a new series, it’s pink. All the first books in my traditionally published series tend to be pink or have pink elements…
Since one of my tags for this book is, Georgette Heyer goes to the wolves.
There have been some fun covers playing with the puddle or mirror look. I took that and since this book involves a trek across the Atlantic for our heroine, Faith, I wanted a dirigible porthole.
I do hope you like this new style of cover, and even more so, Channing’s story within! Look at the wallpaper background? Do you see the wolf? Squee!
In accordance with my usual OCD nature everything is GOING PINK for the next few months – my Instagram, Retro Rack, & my outfits. You know how it goes… I like to theme my universe to my latest book cover.
Do you want to read the blurb? Find out what Channing is up against?
Guilty of an indiscretion? Time to marry a werewolf.
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.
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 New York Times bestselling author of the Parasol Protectorate series comes a stand alone romance set in the same universe. Look out for appearances from favorite characters and the serious consequences of unwarranted geology.
A Note On Chronology
The Claw & Courtship novellas can be read in any order. This book can be enjoyed without having read any of Gail’s other works.
Set in the spring of 1895 this story occurs after events chronicled in Romancing the Werewolf and contemporaneous with those of Competence. Channing is first introduced to readers in the second Parasol Protectorate book, Changeless. He also appears briefly in the Supernatural Society novellas.
