Orczy, Baroness: Scarlet Pimpernel Vol 2. v1. 18 Dec 07
I'm going on a trip soon and had a hankering to read some more Scarlet Pimpernel, so I decided to bind up the rest of the lot, in three book omnibi as HarryT started. Hope he doesn't mind. =)
I took the following blurbs and some of the texts that weren't at PG or PGAU from www.blakeneymanor.com
In this volume:
This time, the League is after one of the biggest, and smallest, fish in the proverbial sea: the Dauphin. And to make matters worse, the plan is complicated by the betrayal of one of their own members, and Blakeney's own brother-in-law! Will the Dauphin be captured? Can Armand make atonement for his crimes? Will Percy die in prison while being tortured slowly?! Is this the end of the Scarlet Pimpernel??
Wikipedia notes that this title serves as a partial basis for most movie versions of the original novel.
The Laughing Cavalier
The original tale of Sir Percy's ancestor, a mercenary fighter in Holland. He helps the freedom fighters, meets the English father who left him as a child, and the woman of his dreams. A prequel to The First Sir Percy and a wonderful story!
Lord Tony's Wife
A coniving peasant, Pierre Adet, leads a mob against the Duc de Kernogan in Nantes and assaults his daughter, Yvonne. Because of his crime, Pierre flees Nantes for many years. His father is hanged for his crime, and he is determined to seek revenge. Under the alias of Martin-Roget, he returns and, with the help of Chauvelin, plans to marry Yvonne and lure the Duc back to Nantes. However, Yvonne has eloped with Lord Antony Dewhurst. Martin-Roget still manages to persuade her father to lure Yvonne away from Lord Tony. Martin-Roget then kidnaps her and the three set off for France. Lord Tony must seek the help of The Scarlet Pimpernel to save his wife! Can Yvonne and her father escape the clutches of Pierre Adet? Will Lord Tony ever see his wife again? Does Sir Percy really spend 100 francs on silk cravats??
