THE SEDUCTION OF THE CRIMSON ROSE
Genre: Historical Romance, Historical Fiction
The flower-named spies of Regency England return as Willig's smart, sassy style cleverly incorporates a modern-day historian's hunt for information with Regency characters and events. Willig switches from a historical voice to a modern tone with ease, drawing readers back and forth in time as they hold their breath to see what happens next.
As Eloise Kelly researches
As the novel moves into the past,
With Vaughn as her mentor, Mary navigates the maze the Tulip has laid out and prevents his plot from destroying England. Her more difficult task is not falling in love with Vaughn, who finds Mary his equal in every way. But then his wife returns from the dead, throwing them into danger. (Dutton, Feb., 400 pp., $24.95)
