Booklist, April 2015 ( Prudence ) Behind the delightful whimsy and snarky observations, there is a great deal of heart and soul... RT Book Reviews ( Prudence ) A character-driven romp with great world-building and delicious rapier wit that recalls Austen and P.G. Wodehouse. io9.com ( Soulless ) Read more From the Author Hello my dears, This is my first novella set in the Parasolverse. It is stand alone, you don't have to have read any other of my steampunk books or novellas, even those in the Delightfully Deadly Series. Poison or Protect is a romance and it does have some nookie, so be aware. It still contains tons of humor and I think you will really love Gavin, and learn to love Preshea as you see her through his eyes. Preshea first appears as a side character teen in the Finishing School series, but you don't have to have read those books first. Happy Ever After and completed story arc guaranteed. Hope you like it!~ Miss Gail Read more See all Editorial Reviews
