    Deciding that true romantic heroes are a thing of the past, Eloise Kelly, an intelligent American who 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: a secret history that begins with a letter dated 1803.

    Overall

    Cheesy romance in the guise of a romantic adventure. This had such a great premise- Too bad it was full of cliche-ridden dialogue, an unimaginative plot, a cheesy formulaic romance, and a really annoying heroine. I was prepared to enjoy this book- that is before the heroine opened her mouth. I think the author was trying to make her cute and clever- but she sounded like a spoiled, vapid, immature brat who needed a reality check and maybe a paddling. The hero was was such an archetypal cookie-cut robot romance hero. Er..does that make sense? I guess it makes more sense than how a book like this got published. I hope the writer doesn't read this review- I'd hate to hurt her feelings- but seriously folks- if you don't like 'crappy' romance novels- (and there are plenty of non-crappy ones out there) don't buy this one.
