"In October of 1806, the Little Season is in full swing, and Sally Fitzhugh has had enough of the endless parties and balls. With a rampant vampire craze sparked by the novel The Convent of Orsino, it seems no one can speak of anything else. But when Sally hears a rumor that the reclusive Duke of Belliston is an actual vampire, she cannot resist the challenge of proving such nonsense false. At a ball in Belliston Square, she ventures across the gardens and encounters the mysterious duke. Lucien, Duke of Belliston, is well versed in the trouble gossip can bring. He has returned home to dispel the rumors of scandal surrounding his parents' death, which hint at everything from treason to dark sorcery. While he searches for the truth, he welcomes his fearsome reputation--until a woman is found dead in Belliston Square, her blood drained from her throat. Lucien and Sally join forces to stop the so-called vampire from killing again. Someone managed to get away with killing the last Duke of Belliston. But they won't kill this duke--not if Sally has anything to say about it. "--

While the penultimate installment in the Pink Carnation series feels like a bit of a placeholder, filling time before the final book (which was released this past August), it's still a totally enjoyable read, featuring a lot of appearances by familiar characters, Willig's usual witty banter, and a kind of silly but still quite entertaining faux-gothic storyline. A very fun, fizzy read.

As usual I enjoyed all the froth and the fizz.Very Gothic. I'm not into Vampires but in this context they worked well. Basically this was a very sad story of a child's life ruined in the interests of greed and property.Looking forward to the next book!
