Even though the Scarlet Pimpernel is not the main hero in this book and only plays a small part to rescue the hero & heroine, I think this is my favourite Scarlet Pimpernel book. I've always loved it ever since first reading.
A lovely book. Lighthearted and well written; I enjoyed every minute of it. Humour as well and a delight to read.
Looking back my review, I meant I was thinking how good it was that NOT everyone has to be a prince or royalty to be a hero. So I was slightly disappointed in the ending.
This is an excellent book. A light adventurous romance but at the same time really enjoyable and delightful.
I enjoyed it much more than the prequel, "Graustark".
Nevertheless, I thought the ending was a tad disappointing when everyone (trying not to give away the story) really did turn out to be royalty, when I was thinking it was so good that every hero (or heroine) has to be a prince or king.
But a really enjoyable book and well written too.
