    Why hadn't he thought of that before? So each book is like a spin-off of the one before, and I just want to get back to the original story! Henrietta might have freed herself from Vaughn's henchmen and fought her way downstairs. He didn't think it was fear of the field of honor—Vaughn had a reputation as a fierce and practiced swordsman, whatever he might say about a recent dearth of duels—but it was deuced annoying.

    The latter struck her as a decidedly more attractive option. I took myself off to bed, but couldn't sleep, mind moving in an endless hamster wheel of Did he? She had been suffering from a minor case of food poisoning on Thursday night. My elbow whapped painfully into Colin's chest.

And he wanted to do bodily violence to Vaughn. I couldn't tell whether he meant I should be leaving any time now, or to keep the injuries coming. See also under Tete-a-Tete and Rendezvous. Maybe not quite as much as the first but close.

The Masque of the Black Tulip book

Waving back the footman who drew up stiffly to attention as if to ward off the intruder, Vaughn treated Miles's precipitate entrance with as little attention as though such scenes were a commonplace of his breakfast routine.

Come, Mr. I yanked up my sweater and lavishly slathered white goo anywhere but where it was supposed to go, most of it onto dry-clean-only cashmere.

And I know there are tons of adorably bantery conversations we could watch enfold between Henrietta and Miles! I tried to tuck my legs up under me, but Colin wasn't paying any more attention to Fifi the Playful Poodle than he was to the transparency of my tank top. His aunt might have had a heart attack.

He must have a hidey-hole somewhere, a cottage in the country, or a dodgy flat in one of the seedier parts of town, where he could question his victims at his leisure. You wouldn't have her here; that would be too obvious.

And he wanted to do bodily violence to Vaughn. Miles fumed. I glanced at the big grandfather clock on the far wall. Dee way I speak. Or what his minions might be doing to her now?

He wouldn't have. I didn't think it possible for this books to be even less believable than 1 but it was.

Cursing, I tore the sweater back off over my head, accidentally sending my glasses flying in the process, added bra, replaced sweater, and fumbled around for my glasses, which had scooted all the way under the bed in that way inanimate objects have when you're in a hurry.

Miles remembered Henrietta's unfortunate contact and wished he hadn't. The more Henrietta and Miles attempt to protect each other from Lord Vaughn and the Marquise, respectively, the more they realize that they love each other.

Henrietta's lover, to be precise. Colin was already in the car, the engine running, drumming his fingers against the steering wheel in an anxious tattoo. Fifteen minutes. Henrietta, as many younger sisters in literature do, just wants to tag along and do her part for the cause.

There was one slight snag. Could one even get cholera in England? The marquise laughed delightedly. The identity of the Pink Carnation was important enough that Vaughn would want to question her himself.
