to scare the chit away within five minutes of meeting him, scarred and
brooding Nicholas, the Viscount Ashfield, is intrigued by the
unfashionably lovely Mira, but his family’s dark secret means he must
fight his attractions. No matter what his heart wants.
wedding approaches, Nicholas and Mira grow ever closer, yet so does the
very real danger. Will the truth bring Nicholas and Mira together or
tear their love apart?
I just love the downtrodden heroine that finds love, acceptance of herself, and becomes successful!
I got all that and more from Once Upon A Wallflower
Nicholas was a great hero. He's just the right mix of dangerous, dashing, and lovable.
Mira throws caution to the wind a couple of times too many and displays some definite TSTL moments, but I think her overall personality made up for any DUH moments.
The mystery was a little predictable, but that was fine with me, because I usually can't stand a mystery that goes on until the last page of a book.
I recommend this one for lovers of the scarred hero and rags to riches troupe. (two of my favorites!)
