Title: The Wicked Wallflower (Wicked Wallflowers, #1)
Author: Maya Rodale
Genre: Historical Romance
Length: Novel (384pgs)
Lady Emma Avery has accidentally announced her engagement—to the most eligible man in England. As soon as it’s discovered that Emma has never actually met the infamously attractive Duke of Ashbrooke, she’ll no longer be a wallflower; she’ll be a laughingstock. And then Ashbrooke does something Emma never expected. He plays along with her charade.
A temporary betrothal to the irreproachable Lady Avery could be just the thing to repair Ashbrooke’s tattered reputation. Seducing her is simply a bonus. And then Emma does what he never expected: she refuses his advances. It’s unprecedented. Inconceivable. Quite damnably alluring.
London’s Least Likely to Misbehave has aroused the curiosity—among other things—of London’s most notorious rogue. Now nothing will suffice but to uncover Emma’s wanton side and prove there’s nothing so satisfying as two perfect strangers…being perfectly scandalous together.
The Wicked Wallflower was a light hearted and humorous read. Perhaps not the most historically accurate, but lovers of comedic chic-lit will be happy with Emma's quick wit and Blake's transformation from rogue to hero.
With a bevy of hilarious situations and over the top characters anyone that likes laughing their butt of while getting a *sigh* worthy happily ever will enjoy this one. I look forward to seeing how the rest of Emma's wallflower friends fare in future installments.
