In Willig’s Pink Carnation series, Eloise Kelly seeks information about spies during the Napoleonic Wars. She learns of French and British spies in colonial India. At that point the plot and setting shift to early-eighteenth-century India and a plot to overthrow British rule. Kate Reading performs this historical romance with a sultry voice and steady pacing. As the love affair between Lady Frederick Staines, née Penelope Deveraux, and Captain Alex Reid heats up, the tension between the British, French, and Indians simmers and then explodes. Reading’s graceful narration makes vivid India’s ornate palaces and arid countryside, and her delivery of the passion between the two principals keeps listeners hooked on every word.
