Review: The Seduction of the Crimson Rose (Pink Carnation #4) by Lauren Willig
It's not your typical historic romance, as both characters have rather Machiavelian i. Heck, in the previous book in the series, the heroine from this book contrived to create a compromising situation with an eligible lord of the realm in order to force him into marraige :- But that is what makes this book so delightful, as like meets like and discovers that maybe love is a real emotion after all.
I think it was one of the best books in the series so far. And when it comes to history, the author Lauren Willig knows her stuff. She has a graduate degree in history.
She does play around a bit with the order of events in the books, but she always explains the proper order in a post-script to the book - which I greatly appreciate. Note to Historic Fiction lovers: When I say that this series has chick lit and historic romance, I mean it. So if you like your historic fiction straight instead of blended with other genres, you might not like this series. Doreen O. Along with Lettie's sister, Mary.
