Set in Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate and Custard Protocol world, How to Marry a Werewolf is another irreverant romp through a regency England filled with Werewolves and Vampires. Familiar characters fill the pages even though this novels heroine is a new entry. American Faith Wigglesworth is leaving the gossip behind and traveling to England to hopefully meet and marry a werewolf. Her dirigible lands and she immediately faces off with a familiar face an irritatingly grumpy Major Channing.
Faith doesn’t realize that Channing is an actual werewolf and stands firm, arguing against his manhandling of her precious collection of rocks. Not used to this lack of fear, Channing can’t help but be curious over this American, a curiosity that comes to the attention of his Alpha Biffy, who can’t help but matchmake.
Even though How to Marry a Werewolf is a novella, Carriger is able to build a back story for Faith that gives her character depth making her three dimensional. If you’ve read past novels (and you should before reading this novella!) Channing is a familiar face. Always growly and at times rather inhumanly wolfy, it’s surprising to see him as a romantic lead. However, somehow it works! Faith needs that strength that Channing has an overabundance of, and they seem to be the Yin to the others Yang. I really enjoyed their complicated flirtation and dramatic declarations!
It would benefit you to have read the Parasol Protectorate series, if not also the Custard Protocol, which is about the next generation although the supernatural set lives a few hundred years, so those characters pop in and out of both. However, if you do pick this up without that advance knowledge of this world I do think you’ll like the romance in this story. It has strength, verve and gives you all the feels.
