As you know, I frequently get asked to suggest books to fill in those long gaps between the publication of the Pink books. Even more frequently, I find myself in need of new books to read to fill in those long gaps when I’m supposed to be writing, but don’t feel like it.
So I thought I’d try something new here on the website: book recommendation Thursdays.
This Thursday, someone just asked me for books like Baroness Orczy’s The Scarlet Pimpernel. I’ve suggested:
— Rafael Sabatini’s Scaramouche (old fashioned swashbuckling in the same era)
— Jessica Benson’s The Accidental Duchess (hilarious romance novel featuring Napoleonic spies and dual identities)
— Barbara Michaels’ Wings of the Falcon (another masked adventurer!)
What would you recommend?
If you’re looking for books in any particular style, just drop a request in the comments section or email me with the author/type of book, and I’ll put out a Thursday request for more like it. Between all of us, we probably have a pretty thorough database of what’s out there!
