Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.

Yes, I love the the overarching plot of the series
It's really good, you'll have to read the next...
Started with a bang and ended with a bang, but the middle dragged and I had to put it aside for a bit... luckily shadow of night came out to distract me. There were also a lot of long pauses between chapters that made it hard to follow at times.
the first one was funny sexy, and fast paced, but they keep going down hill. Less suspense, less romance, less humor. and more unintelligible, made up science
the narration was still as good as the first
Great Fun ! Love the fact the heroine is lauded for her bodacious-ness instead of being "rail-thin"...
But also a fun story. Part animal story, part mystery, part lusty romance.
The best part of these books is Ivy. The author's use of her voice highlight the absurd in polite society has me cracking up every time.
The protagonist's forthright manner and prosaic attitude make nearly all her battles and chases entertaining.
This entire series is so much fun. I listened to all of them back to back, I was so into them.
The narrator does a stellar job, so I'd highly recommend to read them as audio books.
this series is great. it gets better as you get to know the characters, it reminds me a little of the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth peters, same type of lead characters without the supernatural. i have completly enjoyed the series and love that it has some comedy to it too.
One of the more fun historical novels recently written.
Alexia is fun, witty and determined. What's not to like?
The narrators ability to portray the different characters by vocal inflection, accent, and pitch is fun and easy to listen to.
I laughed all the way through it!
A witty and fun way to spend listening time...anytime!
I only gave a 3 star on "OVERALL" because the spacing between chapters was WAY to long anywhere from 6 to 10 seconds. Most spacing should be only 1 or 1.5 seconds tops. The problem being that your not sure if your Ipod or MP3 player has died. I think that this story can easily be re-edited to remove the time between each chapter, and make the story much more fluid. I love the characters, and I love the idea of a whole new kind of para-normal situation. I can't wait until the baby is born. Gail Carriger has a wonderful and spirited heroine. And Emily Gray is wonderful with narration. (But please fix the LONG pauses between CHAPTERS) I will defiantly continue with this series.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
This is the most interesting of the books in this series and I can hardly wait until the nex the series is published.
