    Why was this so short?When her MF books are so long? Let’s face it, I wanted more. And.....😱I’m sorry, but I do not feel this is a stand-alone because as I opened the first chapter I was lost and went back to read the series, it was available at the public library. But, the page count was all time consuming.😘But, there was so much to love about this book to make it worth it:💫I loved the romance. Lyall finally made it home to Biffy th...

    Biffy x Lyall are reunited once more!I was very much excited about this one, I loved Biffy and Lyall together in the Parasol Protectorate books. Even though they weren't together for long, I was shipping them instantly. They just made the perfect couple. <3The book features several plots. From babies left on the doorstep to Biffy trying to get the pack together (and his worries about it) to them having to settle in a new place (our pack has final...

    Cute, fluffy, and the long-awaited happily ever after. Complete with babies, the best of men's fashion, and arguments about purple drapes.

    Fans of Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series have been waiting for one story to play out for a very long time. With the glimpses given in The Custard Protocol, we only grew more desperate. Finally, the second of the novellas in the Supernatural Society series have given us what we have all be waiting for. You guessed it – we finally got our Lyall and Biffy story.I doubt I need to explain how excited I’ve been waiting to grab this one...

    I first discovered Gail Carriger in early 2010. I loved her Parasol Protectorate series so much for a number of reasons, but mostly because of how well she developed her world.Since completing the series she has gone on to write a number of other novels/series and novellas in the same world.When the second installment of the Supernatural Society came out, I was happy to review it and see what characters would find a HEA.So let’s get the most ob...

    3.5-4 starsOriginally posted at For What It's Worth on 11/6/17: http://www.fwiwreviews.net/2017/11/mo...Source: e-arc provided by the author in exchange for an honest reviewI’ve been enjoying all of Carriger’s Parasolverse spin-off novellas. Even though I haven’t finished the original series yet – I’m still able to follow along and read these all as stand-alone's. Romancing the Werewolf has an excellent prologue that recaps Biffy and Ly...

    This was everything I wanted it to be and more. I have desperately been waiting for my favourite werewolves to get the ending they deserve and this novella made me so very, very happy. I might have shed a tear.

    This is a classic Gail Carriger, so it's a little silly and OTT but a nice, fun read. I smiled and I giggled a little and generally had a good time. What it's not is a real stand-alone novel. Technically it is because it is not about the main characters from the "Parasol Protectorate" series but this book here is set in that universe and basically a spin-off. The author has spent idk how many books to create this really rather complex world and t...

    Vraiment très très chouette. Le 5 étoiles est peut être un peu exagéré mais j'étais tellement contente que deux de mes personnages chouchous aient une belle conclusion à leur histoire que je suis prête à être indulgente. Romancing the werewolf; c'est donc l'histoire des retrouvailles entre Biffy et Lyall après 20 ans de séparation. Entre temps, Lyall est allé se perdre en Egypte, a changé de look mais c'est surtout Biffy qui a chan...

    SO GOOD!First: if you haven't read her Parasol Protectorate series, then do it! It's so good, and this story centers around things that have happened in that series.I was a little worried. I have waited 5 years for their reunion, and it was so beautiful. Honestly, Biffy and Lyall are one of my all time favorite couples in literature. Carriger's writing style is so witty, and well thought out. I've read so many of her books throughout the last 7 y...

    We finally see what happens to Biffy and Lyall! In Timeless, we see the beginning of a relationship between the two werewolves, interrupted when Professor Lyall is sent to the Kingair pack to be their Beta for 20 years. Fortunately, Romancing the Werewolf prefaces the main body of the story with a replay of that encounter. 20 years has made for many changes in Biffy's life: he is no longer a newly made werewolf; he is now the London pack's Alpha ...

    This was the incredibly sweet reunion of two Parasol Protectorate characters that I desperately wanted a happy ending for. The other plot threads were amusing and interesting. They taught us more of the world's werewolf culture and inner workings. I also appreciate that the characters are not beholden to tropes and stereotypes, but get to be unique individuals who don't quite fall into any perfect little box.

    This novella still has all the things I love about Carriger’s writing: her brand of humor, werewolves, vampires, fancy dress and hats, intrigue, and a quick little mystery to solve, and a peak into an alternate Victorian England. It also is a sweet romance between two characters who have been separated for a long time and aren’t sure what they are to each other anymore. Any time spent with Biffy and Lyall is time well spent. I wish there was ...

    This was the most delightful bit of fluff I could have ever wanted. It delivers 110%.

    If you have been eagerly and longingly awaiting the story of Biffy and Professor Randolph Lyall–first introduced in the Parasol Protectorate series–you are going to be pleased with this novella. I haven’t read, yet, the previous book in the Supernatural Society Series, but Biffy’s story is one I have been wanting since I first met him in the Parasol books.It has been years since I read any of the Parasol Protectorate books, so I must admi...

    A Joyfully Jay review. 3.75 starsRomancing the Werewolf is a Supernatural Society story, set within Gail Carriger’s steampunk Parasol Protectorate series. The book is intended to stand alone within the broader series and be outside the series timeline. It features Biffy and Lyall, two side characters from the main series, and shows how the men end up together. I have not read any of the Parasolverse stories, so this was a bit of a leap in for m...

    “Sex complicates matters.” [...]“Sometimes, it simplifies them. It brings them here, to this place, to need and gratification and connection. I am entirely yours now.” Biffy buried his face in Lyall’s neck and inhaled. “Yes, you are.” “And you are mine.” I found myself lost while reading this book. Not being able to connect with the writing, really.This is labelled as a standalone, I haven't read any books in this universe so th...

    Carriger's skill in the world building of this series is to be congratulated, years after picking up a proper Parousol novel the characters and their circumstances all came flowing back as I started reading the story of Biffy and his adventures as the new Alpha of the pack. I also seem to have missed the entire arc detailing the sad end of Lord Macon succumbing to the Alpha's curse (couldn’t quite get into the Custard Protocol where this all go...

    It is always a delight to return to the world Gail Carriger created with her book series. I've read most (if not all) of the books set within this universe, but I never grow tired of it. The reunion between Biffy and Lyall was one that was long overdue, and I was immediately invested in their relationship. But what really sold this novel to me was how grounded it is in the world Carriger made (view spoiler)[ I screamed a little bit at the tiny So...

    So this wasn't quite as cute as Romancing the Inventor but it was still adorable! Biffy and Lyall were pinning for each other the entire book so uncertain if the other still wanted them, it was so cute. Especially when they had to fight against the easiness of falling into the past relationship with the 'my' and 'mine's. The story was weak and a little boring. Infants randomly being dropped on the drop step of the werewolf house and ended up havi...

    3.5 starsI just had to read Lyall and Biffy's book, since I loved them in the Parasol Protectorate series. This takes place about 20 years or so after that series, and it was .....nice if not particularly exciting. It starts off slowly and ends much the same way. I've been charmed by their romance from the start, but this novella wouldn't have worked as well had I not read the earlier series. It was a nice postscript though, doesn't spoil what's ...

    Fabulous reuniting story. I enjoyed the amusemwnt with the children, a chance to get to know some of our pack werewolves better and for Biffy to show his power. Lyall and Biffy's Aplha and Beta dynamic complimented so well with their romantic reunion; very glad to have them back together. It was a joy over too soon.
