The heroines of Lauren Willig's bestselling Pink Carnation series have engaged in espionage all over nineteenth-century Europe. In the sixth stand-alone volume, our fair English heroine travels to India, where she finds freedom—and risk—more exciting than she ever imagined. Everyone warned Miss Penelope Deveraux that her unruly behavior would land her in disgrace someday. She never imagined she's be whisked off to India to give the scandal of her hasty marriage time to die down. As Lady Frederick Staines, Penelope plunges into the treacherous waters of the court of the Nizam of Hyderabad, where no one is quite what they seem—even her husband. In a strange country, where elaborate court dress masks even more elaborate intrigues and a dangerous spy called the Marigold leaves venomous cobras as his calling card, there is only one person Penelope can trust: Captain Alex Reid. 

With danger looming from local warlords, treacherous court officials, and French spies, Alex and Penelope may be all that stand in the way of a plot designed to rock the very foundations of the British Empire...

    " So excited to have discovered there were more books in this series!! This one takes place primarily in India (say it in British in your head...come on now... Inja...) about which I know very little, so I thoroughly enjoyed all of the historical context in the book. I love the tone of these books, I love the back and forth from modern to historical...lots of good information but still not 'heavy'...thoroughly delightful reading! "

    " So I really didn't "read" this book. I tried and got through like 40 pages and it just didn't hold my interest. I enjoyed her previous books so I don't know why this one wasn't so interesting to me. Will try it again maybe in the summer when I need some light reading. "

    " Alas I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first 3 of her books. I can't seem to put my finger on what is missing but it is missing something that makes it magical. "
