How to Marry a Werewolf (In 10 Easy Steps) ~ A Claw & Courtship Novella by Gail Carriger features a certain white wolf we all love to hate (except those of us weirdos who love to love him).

Guilty of an indiscretion? Time to marry a werewolf.

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.

    Your recommandation of “Daughter of the Empire” is right. Feist’s trilogy is a must-read. I read this trilogy of a strong woman in an alternate medieval Japan 12 years ago and I still remember it very well.
    And one question about the picture of you in some non-American city. The slate rooftops, the granite rampart, the cathedral spire in the background all indicate that it was taken in Saint Malo in France. Am I right? If so, when was it? It must have been before I became one of your readers, or I would come. (I live in France).

        Hello. I hope that you had time to go to the nearby places of Cancale (to enjoy some seafoo) and the beautiful and unique Mont Saint Michel. Regards.
