London, England, 2003

I bit my lip on an "Are we there yet?"
Friday 56:
"Ah, the sister of our gallant adventurer." On Lord Vaughn's lips the word "gallant" sounded more insult than praise. 
I am spotlighting The Masque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig. This one has been on my TBR mountain forever. I bought it after reading The Secret of the Pink Carnation. Here is the description from Amazon:
...But now she has a million questions about the Pink Carnation's deadly French nemesis, the Black Tulip. And she's pretty sure that her handsome onagain, off-again crush, Colin Selwick, has the answers somewhere in his archives. But what she discovers in an old codebook is something juicier than she ever imagined.


  1. Sounds fascinating...and I LOVE that cover. Here's mine: “INTRUSION”

  2. I could feel his sarcasm. LOL Such a lovely cover for this book.
