Book 2, The Parasol Protectorate

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Alexia Maccon, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears; leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria.

But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. So even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can. She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.
CHANGELESS is the second book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.

The Perfect Read

Amusing and entertaining in extremely well-written English. What more do you want?! Buy it and read it already. Your only regret- like mine - will be that the series isn't longer. But nothing is perfect, you see.

Diverting and Highly Entertaining

This is a terrific second installment in the Parasol Protectorate series. I love the interaction between Alexia and Conall, and Ivy's idiotic utterances are absolutely hilarious. The dirigible scene is well-plotted and exciting, and the doozy of a cliffhanger will definitely drive me to buy the third book. Highly recommended to fans of Juliet Blackwell, Madelyn Alt and Meljean Brook.

Great fun

Really enjoyable, light-hearted series. I just don't understand why a book that is set in England and purports to be British, has so many Americanised words - a 'blond' lady, 'color', 'ladybug', I could go on and on. Doesn't make sense to me. It's either all British or it's not.
