Ambush or Adore Cover Reveal

Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. Ambush or Adore by Gail Carriger is the third book in the Delightfully Deadly series. Spinning off from Gail Carriger's Finishing School series, this story stands on its own and spans decades. We follow finishing school graduate Abigail Woosmoss aka the Wallflower, into adulthood. Ambush or Adore was written after Defy or Defend (Dimity's story).

Full of vampires, old injuries, lost love, and the reappearance of many favorite characters, Defy or Defend is sure to appeal to fans of the series. I cannot wait to read this gem! The entire Parasolverse brought me so much joy and got me through the pandemic. If you haven't read any of the books in this universe, I highly recommend them!



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.

Except by one man.


Pillover Plumleigh-Teignmott is a professor of ancient languages at Oxford University. He’s tried to ignore his training as an Evil Genius and live a quiet life away from politics and intrigue.

When an assignment goes horribly wrong, Agatha must hide and heal. So she goes to ground with the only person who’s always kept her safe, Pillover.

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?

Published by Gail Carriger LLC, Ambush or Adore will release on October 1, 2021 and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this book? Have you read any other books in this series? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
