How To Marry A Werewolf
Guilty of an indiscretion? Time to marry a werewolf.
New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger brings you a charming stand alone story set in her popular Parasolverse.
The monsters left Faith ruined in the eyes of society, so now they’re her only option. 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 them. But there’s something special about Faith. Channing finds himself fighting to defend his species and his honor (what little he has left). But this werewolf has good reason not to trust human women.
Even if they learn to love, can either of them forgive?
Don’t miss this charming story from the author of the Parasol Protectorate books. Look out for appearances from favorite characters and the serious consequences of unwarranted geology.

Accolades & Praise
How to Marry a Werewolf was an Amazon and Borderlands bestseller.
“Excepting the paranormal aspect of it, this is a fairly straight-forward historical romance — I’d call it a Regency Romance more for the style than the time period. Boy meets girl; boy and girl are both rather flawed; boy and girl spend the book trying to sort out each other and their romance. There is sexual wordplay but it’s overall chaste until the end.”
“But seeing Faith and Channing interact with one another, I loved seeing them become more a part of each other’s lives in a way they didn’t expect. They slowly pull down each other’s walls that they’ve built up, but they pull them down in such a way as to irritate anyone else.”
“I never thought I’d use the words “sweet” and “Channing” in the same sentence, but the romance that develops here is very sweet indeed. The road leading up to it is a bit bumpy at times, but readers will be thoroughly entertained by all of the witty verbal sparring that has an Elizabeth Bennet/Mr. Darcy-esque charm to it.”
Praise for How To Marry A Werewolf
“Despite its darker elements, or perhaps because of them, this was a lovely read. Faith and Channing’s relationship isn’t an all-consuming love story, but a story of two people finding something they both need in one another.”
“This book is a lot of fun but also goes a little deeper and darker into the worst of Parasolverse society problems than some of Carriger’s other books. From what sends Faith to London to Channing’s own past, I’d call both backstories much more tragic than others Carriger has written. It gives these two more minor characters a bit of depth that we don’t always get for “lesser” characters.”
