Soulless by Gail Carriger
Though I did find a few plot points a bit tiresome (we get it, Alexia, your father is Italian, your nose is Roman, your best friends are a flamboyant vampire and a woman with horrendous taste, and your Victorian era suitor is a smoking hot Scottish werewolf Alpha who is the picture of a perfect gentleman…
