Summary
In the year 1792, Sir Percy and Lady Marguerite Blakeney are the darlings of British society--he is known as one of the wealthiest men in England and kimwit; she is French, a stunning former actress, and "the cleverest woman in Europe." Together they find themselves at the center of a deadly political intrigue. The Reign of Terror grips France, and every day aristocrats in Paris fall victim to Madame la Guillotine. Only one man can rescue them--the Scarlet Pimpernel--a master of disguises who leaves a calling card bearing only a signature red flower. As the fascinating connection between the Blakeneys and this mysterious hero is revealed, they are forced to choose between love and loyalty in order to avoid the French agent Chauvelin, who relentessly hunts the Scarlet Pimpernel
