I love a good romance based in the 1800's. Even better, a romance/mystery based in the 1800's plus werewolves, vampires, and a steampunk theme!! Soulless by Gail Carriger has all this and more. It was a pleasant vacation from some of the stuff I have been reading lately which has been really heavy. I blame it on Jane Austen, who has for a large chunk of my life influenced me to love the strong, intelligent female protagonist, who never compromises herself for anything or anyone. And funny! I had a few laughs which was really needed, so all in all a good romp in an alternate universe full of my favorite things. What's not to love?
