The Elusive Pimpernel continues the enthralling of Baroness Orczy's glamorous heroine and rakehell hero. Only months after being outwitted by Percy Blakeney in The Scarlet Pimpernel, Chauvelin of the secret police concocts a cunning plan to catch the Scarlet Pimpernel in France, using Marguerite as bait.

It's 1793, the Terror is at its height!Heads are rolling like ripe cabbages! All Paris is seething with revolutionary fervor and hatred for the legendary Pimpernel, who dares pluck the hated aristocrats from the very jaws of the guillotine. And all Paris knows the Pimpernel is the thrice-damned British aristo, Sir Percy Blakeney! If found, he is to be marched to Madam Guillotine, if he isn't torn to pieces by an enraged mob first. But when Chauvelin insults Lady Blakeney and challenges Sir Percy to a duel in France before the Prince of Wales and all the British court, what can a cavalier do but accept? And when her husband sets sail for Europe , what can Marguerite do but follow, determined to avert, or share, her husband's fate!

Chauvelin licks his lips, stations his men and waits; he has no intention of fighting any duel. The lovers will be trapped in the midst of a nation of enemies with no hope of escape! Don't miss this heart-stopping sequel to one of the world's most beloved novels. Introduction by Jean Marie Stine.
