Summary (From the publisher):

Eloise Kelly was looking for answers to one of history's greatest mysteries, but found something even better...

Deciding that true romantic heroes are a thing of the past. Eloise, an intelligent American who nonetheless always manages to wear her Jimmy Choo suede boots on the day it rains, leaves Harvard's Widener Library bound for England to finish her dissertation on the dashing pair of spies the Scarlet Pimpernel and the Purple Gentian. What she discovers is something the finest historians have missed: the secret history of the Pink Carnation-the most elusive spy of all time, who saved England itself from Napoleon's invasion.

The Secret History of the Pink Carnation opens with the story of Eloise Kelly settling in to read the secret history. But before Eloise can unmask the Pink Carnation, she uncovers a passionate romance that almost threw off the course of world events. How did the Pink Carnation save England? What became of the Scarlet Pimpernel and the Purple Gentian? And will Eloise Kelly find a hero of her own?
