A review by soulkissed2003
The Seduction of the Crimson Rose by Lauren Willig


In modern day England, graduate student Eloise faithfully plods along through her research. By now, she has learned the identities of several British spies from the Napoleonic era. Eloise has her own continuing romance with Colin, a descendant of some of the aforementioned spies. While delving into his family records, she reveals the romances and intrigues that marked his ancestors lives as well. By this, the fourth book in the series, I feel like I've gotten to know the characters well and enjoyed seeing that two of the lesser liked, more forceful personalities got some time in the spotlight.

Political turmoil, romantic tension, and secret identities . . . it makes for a powerful combination and an excellent story. Light yet compelling reading that will keep you hooked.
