Hail the Victorious Parasol! The delightful Gail Carriger is here as part of our Literary Swoon series, in which we’ve asked our favorite young adult authors to share their favorite romantic book scenes. As a writer who has written some giddily romantic moments into her own novels—you’ll remember she describes Lord Maccon in Soulless as “A man who tastes like one of those expensive French soups, dark and rich”–we couldn’t wait to find out what Gail herself found swoon-worthy.
Don’t forget that the scene may contain a spoiler, so proceed at your own risk!
Gail Carriger’s Favorite Romantic Book Scene:
Gail Carriger was raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and incurable curmudgeon. The New York Times bestselling author of the Parasol Protectorate books will introduce a brand new Victorian steampunk series for young adults entitled The Finishing School, to be released in February 2013. Her latest release, Timeless, comes out on March 1, 2012.
