"Laugh out loud funny and refreshingly different, Soulless kept me turning pages well into the night. I enjoyed every minute of this wonderfully unexpected twist on paranormals." – Angie Fox, New York Times Bestselling author of The Accidental Demon Slayer and The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers.

An Alexia Tarabotti novel

Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she is being rudely attacked by a vampire to whom she has not been properly introduced!

Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire, and the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate. With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible.

Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society?

Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing?

Who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

It is either Jane Austen does paranormal, or P. G. Wodehouse does steampunk.
