A Monday Giveaway: The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig

Lucky for me, and for one lucky reader, I picked up a brand new copy of The Secret History of the Pink Carnation for a pretty small couple of pennies. I haven't done a giveaway in quite some time, and I'm thrilled that this would be my first one back on the scene!

As mentioned here in my blog, I recently fell into these novels (thanks to many different book bloggers), and am quite enjoying them. If you're interested in the Scarlet Pimpernel, spy thrillers, Victorian romances, modern academia, or maybe a combination of all of the above, then you should try this book out. They really are too fun.

You can see more about The Secret History of the Pink Carnation at my March 2nd post, as well as a follow up to this book with The Masque of the Black Tulip, on March 25th.

    I just found this blog and became a follower. Also I became a follower on twitter and posted this giveaway on my twitter status. I couldn't get the link to post challenged at times. :|

  9. I agree this series is great, but um, not from the Victorian era, but the Georgian-era. Common mistake. People erroneously think Jane Austen has Victorian. The Victorian-era started in 1837 - the year Queen Victoria was crowned.

    Thanks for the great give-away. I love Lauren Willig. She is my hero.

  10. Please sign me up, I love The Scarlet Pimpernel.
