The much anticipated fifth installment in the inventive and original Pink Carnation series
“Pride and Prejudice
lives on” in Lauren Willig’s acclaimed Pink Carnation series, which
continues with another deliciously lighthearted, romantic, and
suspenseful novel. Willig introduces to her series the most elusive spy
of all time, whose calling card is the faint whiff of jasmine in the
cold night air.
After twelve years in India, Robert, duke of
Dovedale, returns to his estate in England to avenge the murder of his
mentor during the 1803 Battle of Assaye. Robert plans to infiltrate the
infamous, secretive Hellfire Club to uncover the murderer’s identity—
but he has no idea that an even more difficult challenge awaits him—one
Lady Charlotte Lansdowne.
Having cherished a romanticized view
of Robert since childhood, Charlotte is thrilled by his return. To
Charlotte, Robert is all the knights of the Round Table rolled into one.
That’s not exactly the case, but she can’t help but search for the man
she loves inside this less-than-pristine package. And while Robert works
to dissuade Charlotte from her delusions, he can’t help but be drawn to
her innocence and inner beauty.
When Charlotte is approached by
Lady Henrietta Selwick to join her in a bit of espionage—investigating a
plot to kidnap the king—Robert soon realizes that Charlotte is not only
the perfect partner in crime; she’s the perfect partner, period. Caught
in a dangerous game with deadly flower-named spies and secret members
of the Hellfire Club, Robert and Charlotte must work together to reveal
the villain…and confront their true passion for each other.
