The Seduction of the Crimson Rose

by Lauren Willig, 385 pages

Between daydreaming about Colin and fending off the advances of a pompous archive curator, Eloise learns the story of a cool beauty drawn into the world of international espionage by a cynical pawn of the Pink Carnation as they finally uncover the true nature and identity of the deadly Black Tulip.

I like how this series flows from one interlinked story of the past to another.  It makes each new volume feel more grounded when you already know some of the people involved.  This particular installment also clears up some of Colin's less-than-genial behavior in the past, making it easier to like him now that his previous jerkiness has a logical explanation.
