A natural at the art of seduction, Mary easily catches the attention of the French spy, but Lord Vaughn never anticipated that his own heart would be caught as well. Fighting their growing attraction, impediments from their past, and, of course, the French, Mary and Vaughn find themselves lost in a treacherous garden of lies. And as our modern-day heroine, Eloise Kelly, digs deeper into England?s Napoleonic-era espionage, she becomes even more entwined with Colin Selwick, the descendant of her spy subjects.

This 4th book in the series starting with THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE PINK CARNATION continues the mystery and fun of the earlier books.

Lauren Willig's fourth Pink book tells the story of two very SLYTHERIN characters (and do pardon me for the use of Harry Potter parallels)

Lauren Willig's fourth Pink book tells the story of two very SLYTHERIN characters (and do pardon me for the use of Harry Potter parallels). The girl is Mary Alsworthy (sister of Letty Alsworthy, the leading lady in the Book 3, who is portrayed as a haughty and opportunistic debutante. In Book 3, we learned that Mary schemed to get a viscount to marry him, only to have her plans foiled when the viscount decided to marry her sister instead.

Willig’s series gets better with each addition, and her latest is filled with swashbuckling fun, romance, and intrigue.

Also, although there are romantic scenes, both characters are so pragmatic that they don't get swept away in the manner of the pairings in the other three "Pink Carnation" books. This is not to say, however, that there aren't romantic scenes. They are, and they are sweet, although still in keeping with the characters' more emotionally reticient natures.

Determined to secure another London season without assistance from her new brother-in-law, Mary Alsworth accepts a secret assignment from Lord Vaughn on behalf of the Pink Carnation - to infiltrate the ranks of the dreaded French spy, the Black Tulip.
This episode stars Lord Vaughn and Mary Alsworthy. Both of them have appeared in earlier books. Neither was really a positive character. Mary is single-minded in her search for a husband and is willing to use all her womanly wiles to capture one. Lord Vaughn has been a mysterious character of uncertain loyalties.

In this story, Vaughn offers to pay for Mary's next London season if she will act as bait to capture the mysterious Black Tulip. Mary wants the season. In her defense, marriage really was the only acceptable path for a woman in her social class at the time. I loved the dialogue between the two of them as they sparred, exchanged quotations, and tried to outdo each other.

It was fun to watch two cynical and practical people fall in love but secrets from Lord Vaughn's past threaten to derail their bright new future. And the Black Tulip has plans of his own that create all sorts of danger for both Vaughn and Mary.

In the present section of the story, Eloise finally gets to have her date with Colin wherein she learns why he was so unwelcoming when she came to look at the family papers.
I really enjoyed the writing, the story line and the development of the characters as they fell in love. For the first time the humour is not overdone, at least in the historical section in this series.

Baroness Orczy's 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' was one of my favourite novels as a child and it has been such a pleasure to revisit this era in Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation novels. I very much like the plot device of using the historical researcher 200 years later discovering more and more about the spies of the time. Eloise and Colin's romance is contrasted with the romances of Colin's ancestors. For me this novel was the most believable and by far the best of the Pink Carnation series.
I have been listening to the audio and reading the book because I love it! This is probably by far my favorite installment next to the first book. The characters are great. I was hoping Lauren Willig would write a book involving Vaughn because through all the books he interested me a lot. I had a feeling he would be the kind of hero I like. He is a rake, funny and can be wonderfully sarcastic. I think Amy needs a man like this in her life. He is almost real to me. I myself could fall in love with him. He is irresistably sexy too if I may say so. He is a man who will remain loyal to his woman for all eternity. Most rakes are in my books, very protective of the women they love. I can't wait to pick the book up tonight and read more. I love Eloise and Colin a lot. The relationship is developing nicely and realistically. For all the books, they are books like Harry Potter where you can never get tired of reading it again or listening to it. I think these are the best books since the Harry Potter series. More people need to read it. Maybe not children but teens would love these books too I think.
I love the Pink Carnation series and while Mary's book isn't my favorite, I recently re-read the series and I feel I have a better appreciation for her character that I didn't have the first time through. I highly recommend this series for any who like strong female characters and period literature. The writing style is a little less period and a lot more contemporary perhaps, but for the most part I have no complaints. But then, if you're looking at book 4 then you probably already know this and aren't bothering with reading the reviews.
This 4th book in the series starting with THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE PINK CARNATION continues the mystery and fun of the earlier books. I really like the way Lauren Willig alternates between her modern day researcher, Eloise Kelly and the British spies from the era of Napoleon, where Eloise is working to uncover the identity of spy known as The Black Tulip. I wish Willig would spend a little more time developing the relationship between Eloise Kelly and her love-interest, Colin Selwick, but I look forward to each book that picks up where the one before left off. I would like it if Willig would briefly remind readers of how characters from previous books fit into the story, as the length of time between books makes it difficult sometimes to remember who people are, but I'm willing to read these books more than once to find out.
I would rate a 5 except for the typos that make you read a sentence repeatedly trying to figure out which word(s) do not belong in it. It is markedly worse in the last 5 chapters.
This reviews the CD of the book. What I love most about this series is the wonderful, strong and brave female characters who still manage a lot of grace and tact. The handsome and gentlemanly male characters keep their wit while "tolerating" the amazing feats of their ladies. The worst thing I can say about this series is that they are so good you can't stop listening and then it is over so soon! (kind of like that box of chocolates you wait for and then devour because they are just so good). Of course, I love Kate Reading's characterization and vocals. she really made the series come alive. Lauren, quite that dumb day job (I mean, that super high powered legal job) and write more of these gems!
What I like about this series: The adventure, comedy, fun, historical references, and that the characters (the lead women) are all very different, and still find a man that fits perfectly into their lives. There is hope for everyone!
What I love about this series: The developing story between Eloise and Colin and the wit! Lauren Willig does a good job of visiting the lives of all of her characters. Unlike so many books that introduce a character and never mention them but in passing later, readers get to know the characters and feel loose ends tied up in this series.
This particular book was not my favorite but sheds light on some of the characters you may be wondering about in previous books.
