If you've never read The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy, order this great book now! Move over Zorro and Dr. Syn here is the first ever costumed-hero with a secret identity, the man who inspired them all, plus literature's most fiery, independent and alluring heroine.

Sir Percy Blakeney is by day a witless fop interested only in clothes and gambling, by night the daring, courageous, elusive rescuer known only as The Scarlet Pimpernel. Marguerite St. Just — after what one of them had done to her and her family, she had every reason to hate the aristos the Pimpernel rescued and every reason to betray him.

Star-crossed lovers meet in the shadow of the guillotine in the midst of history's bloodiest frenzy, the French Revolution! Marguerite never dreamed that the man she once loved, her husband, the cowardly dandy, Sir Percy Blakeney, was the notorious Scarlet Pimpernel not until the moment after she sprang the trap that would send him straight to the guillotine. As for the Pimpernel, he was growing more careless of his life everyday, believing the woman he loved above all others had sent his best friend to the guillotine! And the merciless secret police are closing in on both!

Read it and then read the sequel, The Elusive Pimpernel, also a PageTurner from Renaissance E Books. Both have outstanding introductions by Jean Marie Stine.
