characters è eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Lauren Willig Lauren Willig ´ 3 read & download review The Betrayal of the Blood Lily Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB A New York Times extended list bestseller in hardcover the sensational sixth book in the national bestselling Pink Carnation series Whisked away to nineteenth century India Penelope Deveraux plunges into the court intrigues. I m so happy I scored the ARC and got to read this before seeing a bunch of other reviews for it Although its also a mixed blessing because I m of course already dying for the next one and now I just have to wait that much longer for it Anywayon to my reviewHenrietta and Miles have been dethroned from the status of my favorites of the series Alex and Penelope really got to me I LOVE how they have all sorts of issues I hate disgustingly perfect characters Alex s issues rest mostly on his family and crazed sense of loyalty while Penelope has a rather large mass of unresolved personal issues she wrestles with throughout the book I really love the way Willig interpreted her character and have a great respect for her ability to do so because I don t think most authors could have pulled it off Just like Aunt Arabella told Eloise she comes off as spirited but she is also pretty weighted down with horribly low self worth Like Alex comes to realize the spirited courageous Penelope is hidden behind the stone cold Lady Staines He helps Penelope kick Lady Staines out on her ass and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed reading about it I love when authors can convey a real chemistry between characters it comes off wanting often then not This series however never fails to deliverI was blushing and getting warm fuzzies right along with PenelopeAnd of course there is the ever wonderful Eloise and Colin I think Eloise has to be one of my favorite characters of all time She is bumbling awkwardand also loyal charming and absolutely hilarious I will never give up hoping they will get their own book one of these days I hate only getting short glimpses into their world I want Anywaythis series as a whole is just fabulous The settings are always historically sound the characters and their feelings always believable there is always an abundance of delightfully biting wit and some of the capers these people get into are ridiculous enough to be on the point of spoof I don t mean spoof in a bad way I mean it as in the characters are channeling the spirit of Amelia Peabody but real enough to put you on the edge of your seat In short this series has it all And this one for me was the best of the lot so farThere was one thing toward the end Alex and Penelope rush off somewhere in a hurry so she just jumps on his horse with him but then when they are leaving their horses plural are waiting for them But I do just have the ARC so maybe it was cleared up shrug small potatoes either way

Penelope is forced to marry Freddy through her own flirtation gone awry As Serena Selwick Adderly says of Penelope she s a bit of a lost soul There are none that think of her that way accept for Captain Alex Reid the guard that takes charge of Freddy and Pen s travels to Hyderabad the place where Freddy has a cushy job with a title he hasn t deservedFreddy doesn t love his wife and Pen most certaintly doesn t love her husband hell she doesn t even like him but there are ways that a marriage of convenience can hurt and Freddy knows how to twist the knife in What no one expects lease of all Alex is that Penelope is daring brave stubborn impetous regal and hard but most of all she s just a young woman who feels alone She acts out and sells herself cheaply when she s than what she thinks and than what most people assume A crackshot a horsewoman a seductress and witty Penelope meets her match with AlexUnfortunately it s a case of bad timing or is it Alex is the epitome of an honorable service man He s a protector and believes in Penelope when even she doesn t Of course he has his own flaws and his own demons most noticeably in the form of his brotherIndia beautiful but wild untamed with parts of civilization and hot with bits of staggering coolness best describe Penelope and Alex a British born child who had grown up in India it s the perfect matchExcept for the husband the spies and the politics There is aspy going by the flowery epitaph of the Marigold Which one of Freddy s weasly friend s could it be Or is it any of them Could it be Alex Is it Pen Lots of accusations and suspicions abound but the core of this book isn t the spy story or the adventures It s a lost little girl who was made a woman too soon through her own recklessness and treatment and a man who has a fierce love but no one he deems good enough to share it withThere are twists and turns and it s all well worth it The story the landscape and the characters seem to come out of the page and grasp your attention with both hands Willig has mentioned how much she loves and admires Georgette Heyer and I have a funny idea that Ms Heyer would like this series as well Though this is a standalone book with none of the core characters in it there is one character that does show up toward the end and is a nice foil for Penelope s brusue blunt mannerAs with every book in this series it is a story within a story and I must admit that I was a little bored with Eloise and Colin until their last two chapters That might be part of the problems with carrying two stories especially when the modern story is used as a vehicle to get the main historical story across but I felt like Eloise and Colin fell a littel flat this time around Let s hope they pick it up in the next bookI did miss Jane and Henrietta but Penelope with all of her faults was a good enough heroine for me to overlook them for 396 pages

characters è eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Lauren Willig Lauren Willig ´ 3 read & download review The Betrayal of the Blood Lily Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Of the Nizam of Hyderabad where no one is uite what they seem New to this strange and exotic country where a dangerous spy called the Marigold leaves venomous cobras as his calling card she can trust only one man Captain Ale. After the fifth Pink Carnation book I kind of felt like I needed a little break from the Pink Carnation series And by little break I mean like five yearsthats how long it s been since I read one of the Pink Carnation booksI love the series as a whole but the last book in the series that I read just left me a little wanting in the uniueness categorySo I abandoned it in favor of other books though I always knew that someday I would come back to it because lets face it I am in love with this series but I needed little time to step away from it and come back to it in order to love itGranted five years seems excessive but it happened eventuallyI picked up The English Wife also by Lauren Willig though it is not connected to the Pink Carnation books I easily fell in love with her writing and story in The English Wife So much so that I was reminded why I love the Pink Carnation bookssuperb story telling So I picked up The Betrayal of the Blood Lily and went to townAs I ve mentioned before in my other reviews of the series Willig has a kind of formula that she uses in her Pink Carnation seriesstrong aristocratic lady meets stubborn dashing bachelor in tights and they blunder through espionage 101 and ultimately end up having a HEA While it s formulaic it doesn t ring false for Willig because she always comes up with memorable and uniue charactersI never liked Penelope in the other books She was kind of the resident skank She was reckless and impulsive and I just wasn t really into her however I was interested to see how her romance was going to play out in this book Could Willig convince me that she was able to find true love based on what I had seen of her in the other booksThe short answer is yesI loved how Willig took the classic romance troupe and kind of made an anti romance of sorts When we meet Penelope she is married to Freddy whose she was forced into a marriage with back in the fifth book I believeFreddy is positively useless and a complete jack ass In the fifth book Charlotte had said that maybe the marriage and removal to India would be the making of their marriage so I thought that this book would be about them coming together but it was far from that I literally couldn t stand Freddy by the end of the first chapter He was irritating useless and puffed up well above his station I felt so bad for Penelope but at the same time I wasn t completely sorry for herThen we have Captain Alex Reid Straight laced and noble A man who can hardly stand the sight of Freddy It became rather apparent that Penelope had designs on Alex but as a noble officer he was inclined to pass on that situation However against his better judgement he finds himself being won over by PenelopeI agree with Collin s great aunt s opinion of Penelope s storyit s the most tragic Penelope is so impulsive and self destructive at times that is boarders on disastrous I loved how that played out in the developing romance between Alex and Penelope It made for a completely different approach to romance than in some of the other Pink Carnation books In this book Penelope is very married and Alex is almost too noble when it comes to respecting women Slowly I was just as won over as Alex and I appreciated the uniue trope in this book I didn t find the adultery aspect distasteful at all though others might not agreeThe only thing that I thought distracted from this novel was the Indian history All the other Pink Carnation books are set in England The last book s hero was from India but it was still set in England so the landscape and politics were familiar In this book that is not the case I had a hard time following or appreciating the politics in India and basically the entire setting didn t do a whole lot for me It should have been this exotic and uniue land but I felt like the setting was under utilized I was interested in the romance than anything else and as far as I can tell it was only set here to set up future books and characters In my opinion this could have been set in England as well but I guess if Willig wanted to give readers a break from the Western politics then India seemed like the next logical settingOver all this was a good book and I was reading well into the night Even if I didn t think it was as good as some of the others in the series I still enjoyed it enough to start the next book immediately after closing the cover on this oneSee my full review here
