"Pride and Prejudice lives on" in Lauren Willig's acclaimed
Pink Carnation series, which continues with another
deliciously lighthearted, romantic, and suspenseful novel.
Willig introduces to her series the most elusive spy of all
time, whose calling card is the faint whiff of jasmine in
the cold night air.
After twelve years in India, Robert, duke of Dovedale,
returns to his estate in England to avenge the murder of his
mentor during the 1803 Battle of Assaye. Robert plans to
infiltrate the infamous, secretive Hellfire Club to uncover
the murderer's identity- but he has no idea that an even
more difficult challenge awaits him-one Lady Charlotte
Having cherished a romanticized view of Robert since
childhood, Charlotte is thrilled by his return. To
Charlotte, Robert is all the knights of the Round Table
rolled into one. That's not exactly the case, but she can't
help but search for the man she loves inside this
less-than-pristine package. And while Robert works to
dissuade Charlotte from her delusions, he can't help but be
drawn to her innocence and inner beauty.
When Charlotte is approached by Lady Henrietta Selwick to
join her in a bit of espionage-investigating a plot to
kidnap the king-Robert soon realizes that Charlotte is not
only the perfect partner in crime; she's the perfect
partner, period. Caught in a dangerous game with deadly
flower-named spies and secret members of the Hellfire Club,
Robert and Charlotte must work together to reveal the
villain . . . and confront their true passion for each other.

I don't know that they've changed so much as there are more genres to write in now. I'll always love an alpha male, though!

I've always liked the strong silent type.
They do what needs to be done, suffer in
silence, and can take what life throws at
