Published Date: March 20, 2017
Historical Romance/Victorian/Short Reads
The lead female character, Jane, a wallflower, has all but given up on marriage and the lead male character, Caleb, loves his life as a rogue, neither of them see a wedding in their future. After finding themselves in a compromising situation, a marriage is born. The two main characters end up being a perfect match as they find their way past their rough beginning and end up with a happy union. The author has written a quick, enjoyable read with humorous and teasing dialogue as well as angst and desire. I’m a fan of the Ladies and Scoundrels series, and Scandalous Wallflower does not disappoint.
A wallflower by nature, Jane long ago accepted she would become a spinster. Perhaps such a fate was for the best. After all she’d witnessed firsthand how miserable marriage could make a lady. Still she dared to dream-that is until she finds herself thoroughly scandalized by a lord with the manners of a wild boar. After Caleb Wesley, The Earl of Keery, failed to protect the one person who’d counted on him, he embraced his role of blackguard. He holds his vices close-light skirts, gambling, and liquor-and has no intention of giving them up. Even after he accidentally ruins a lady and is forced to offer marriage. Two people brought together through an unwanted circumstance discover something neither one believed they’d ever have. Can they let go of their old hurts and beliefs long enough to embrace the gift fate bestowed upon them?
