Publisher's Summary

In the latest Pink Carnation novel from national best-selling author Lauren Willig, rumors spreading among the ton turn deadly as a young couple unites to solve a mystery.
In October of 1806, the Little Season is in full swing, and Sally Fitzhugh has had enough of the endless parties and balls. With a rampant vampire craze sparked by the novel The Convent of Orsino, it seems no one can speak of anything else. But when Sally hears a rumor that the reclusive Duke of Belliston is an actual vampire, she cannot resist the challenge of proving such nonsense false. At a ball in Belliston Square, she ventures across the gardens and encounters the mysterious Duke.
Lucien, Duke of Belliston, is well versed in the trouble gossip can bring. He's returned home to dispel the rumors of scandal surrounding his parents' deaths, which hint at everything from treason to dark sorcery. While he searches for the truth, he welcomes his fearsome reputation - until a woman is found dead in Richmond. Her blood drained from her throat.
Lucien and Sally join forces to stop the so-called vampire from killing again. Someone managed to get away with killing the last Duke of Belliston. But they won't kill this duke - not if Sally has anything to say about it.

Loved it!

Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation series is absolutely one of my favorite reads and I especially love them on Audible when narrated by Kate Reading (who has read all but one). While they are all enjoyable, this one took me back to the original book that started it all, The Secret History of the Pink Carnation. It was just delightful from beginning to end. If you are one of those lucky folks that haven't yet sampled the Pink series, I envy you. Do yourself a favor and dive in. Only one caution - they should be read in order since the characters are all intertwined and their progression needs to be followed logically.

Great addition to the series

I really liked this book. It was a lot of fun. Okay, there weren't many spies. And Eloise comes across as a 14 year old at times. (That could be Kate Reading's reading of her. That's why I gave the performance only 4 stars. At least she pronounced "Eloise" right this time.) But it's an entertaining book.

Sally's story is funny and easy to read. I totally enjoyed it. I'm so glad there's one more book in the Pink Carnation series. I really like Lauren Willig's books.
