Today is kickoff day for Pink II! I’m thrilled to introduce you all to Erin, a fellow Pink Enthusiast who will be leading us through the month of October with her thoughts on The Masque of the Black Tulip. Just like last month, there will be giveaways, weekly recaps, and a few non-Pink posts thrown in. Since we’re beginning Erin’s month of moderating, I will go ahead and turn this post over to her!
Hello, my name is Erin. I am a Pink Addict, and I will be your guest blogger for Pink II. So today is October 1, and we start The Masque of the Black Tulip. I am super excited to host this book because I love Henrietta and Miles. Their relationship has always existed for them, but it is fun to watch it evolve and have them discover each other in that way. We get a preview of them in Pink I, especially when everybody’s over in France to “help” Richard. Here is Lauren’s recap of Pink II:
Who: Henrietta Selwick and Miles Dorrington
When: Summer, 1803
What: That vicious French spy, the Black Tulip, is on the trail of the Pink Carnation—but the Tulip never reckoned with Lady Henrietta Selwick.
Historical Cameos: William Wickham, the Patronesses of Almacks
So without further ado, let’s get back to the story and to Eloise, as she and Colin drive in uncomfortable silence out to Selwick Hall… “I bit my lip on an ‘Are we there yet?'”
