Historical Romances

What's a perpetual graduate student to do after she gets her law degree as well as her Ph.D. in history from Harvard? Become a historical romance novelist, of course! Fed up with historical inaccuracies in romance novels, Lauren Willig set out to do just that. Book 5 of the Pink Carnation series has just been published. It's The Temptation of the Night Jasmine, but the Wellesley Free Library has all the books in the series.

Library Journal writes:

"In her swashbuckling debut, The Secret History of the Pink Carnation , Willig reimagines France under Napoleon besieged by a whole bouquet of spying floral foes—not just the Scarlet Pimpernel but the Purple Gentian and the Pink Carnation to boot. Bad news for the Bonapartes but
barrels of good-natured fun for the rest of us. "
