The Professor Wore Prussian Blue

The Professor Wore Prussian Blue

Family. Gold. Both precious. Both all too easy to lose …

Daisy and Frederica Linden, having finally found their beloved father, Professor Rudolph Linden, are on the last leg of the journey they began so long ago. The only thing now in their way is the notorious gang of air pirates who haunt the archipelago between Port Townsend and Victoria. Corporal Kent of the Royal Canadian Airborne Police gallantly offers to escort their conveyance in an official airship, hoping against hope that Freddie will fly with him and give him an answer to a very important question.

But Professor Linden’s sense of propriety dictates that Daisy’s fiancé William Barnicott and their ward Davey Fletcher should become the corporal’s crew. They gravely underestimate the pirates’ abilities and are barely clear of the mainland when they are shot down. It is up to the Lindens to locate the pirate hideout among the islands and mount a rescue. But when Davey goes missing, will they find him in time … or is it the pirates who should fear one intrepid small boy?

INTELLIGENCER

Agatha Woosmoss, the Wallflower, is the greatest intelligencer of her generation. And no one knows she exists. She has been invisible, capable, and cunning for well over four decades. Her greatest skill is in her ability to go forever unnoticed.

Can Pillover hold onto the deadly woman who specializes in getting away? Will Agatha realize that patience is indeed a virtue, and that perhaps it is good to be noticed by the one who waits?

"This intoxicatingly witty parody will appeal to a wide cross-section of romance, fantasy and steampunk fans." ~ Publishers Weekly, starred review (Soulless)

Spinning off from Miss Gail’s Finishing School series, this story stands on its own and spans decades but was written after Defy or Defend. May contain vampires, old injuries, lost love, and the reappearance of many favorite characters. Perfect for fans of Julia Quinn, Jodi Taylor, or Meljean Brook.

Delicate Sensibilities?

This tale concerns a considerable amount of pining and the repressed passion of two people who secretly adore each other and occasionally act on it. Agatha and Pillover are mature characters who act maturely, please be aware of this. If you like gruff but caring men with secret sorrows and the tough smart women they love, you’ll also enjoy How to Marry a Werewolf.
