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.
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.
