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.

I'm glad to see that I am not the only person who found the lengthy pauses between chapters very annoying. Overall, this is an entertaining light-hearted series.
I loved this story. It was well written and Emily Gray makes me envision this story so clearly. I laughed and fell right into the times. The whole combination of werewolves and vampires coexisting in this book is rich. Looking forward to the next one.
Love Sci Fi and Fantasy books since I was 8, starting reading A Princess of Mars series in Junior High School thanks to my Uncle Lester.
Fun series with witty interactions and a feel of P & P to it, though a lot more romantic interactions, all tastefully done of course.
A delightful mix of fantasy and Victorian England, at the same time fresh and wittty. The quirky mix of characters is great. The action and adventure have the flavor of the "Wild, Wild West" storyline, with crazy gadgets and wacky heros and villains--and steamy love interest. Great chemistry among the characters. Don't be fooled by the outward simplicity, Carriger walks the walk of both the erudite and urbane.
I really enjoy this series, but the pauses in the narration of this installment were really, really irritating. They pull the listener out of the story, which is why I only gave it four stars instead of five.
I enjoyed Soulless so much I couldn't wait for the second book to come out, and it appears I accidentally downloaded this book second. The best thing about Soulless was the witty, snappy rapport between Alexia and Connall, although I thoroughly enjoyed the supporting characters. In Blameless, Connall spends most of his time in a drunken stupor, separate from his wife, who is in grave peril. Unfortunately, whe he finally comes to his senses, he puts duty before love, and delays in finding her. So much for his volatile, emotional character. She easily forgives him, and they reunite with little fanfare. I waited through the whole book for this disappointing climax. The book was amusing, a nice little book, but I definitely won't wait with bated breath for the next in the series.
While not quite as good as the first two in the series (Soulless and Changeless), it still is a fun book. The only fault is in the production. For some reason the engineers have lengthened the dead space between chapters and this is very annoying.
Hilarious satire about the dress of the Victorian era.
It is a Steampunk Victorian version of Sookie Stackhouse.
The GRRR of the handsome sexy werewolf.
YES and I got the rest of the series immediately and wanted more.
One of the best series I have listened to lately. Maybe ever and I listen a lot.
The story was okay....It still was not as good as the first and I kind of lost some respect for Alexia Tarrabotti for running so swiftly back to her stupid husband after he basically called her a whore....but what are you going to do? I am very interested in the baby though can't wait to see about that.
