RT Rating

The fifth installment in the Pink Carnation series is another spy thriller as the Duke of Dovedale hunts down a killer. In true Willig fashion the story is two pronged. She balances the contemporary love life of Harvard grad student Eloise with her historical counterpart. Witty, smart, carefully detailed and highly entertaining, Willig's latest is an inventive, addictive novel.

Lady Charlotte Lansdowne hopes that the return of Robert, the
Duke of Dovesdale, from India heralds
the beginning of a love affair. But
Robert is obsessed with finding the
spy who murdered his mentor. While he scours Hellfire clubs,
opium orgies and the dark corners
of London hunting his quarry, Charlotte works for the king. Their paths cross time and again, fueling their romance with as much danger as passion
until the thrilling climax. (DUTTON, Feb., 400 pp., $25.95)
