{Historical Romance Minute Review} The Wicked Wallflower by Maya Rodale

{Historical Romance Minute Review} The Wicked Wallflower by Maya Rodale

The Wicked Wallflower (Bad Boys & Wallflowers, #1)
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. (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 4/5 -- I really liked it!


"Any minute now Lady Emma Avery's life would truly begin." (page 1, line 1)
Loved Emma's pluck. Loved Ashbrooke's sense of humor. Loved Emma and Ashbrooke together. Loved that he saw her, the things she didn't even see in herself. Loved that he didn't try to change her. Aunt Agnes was a riot, her idea of the Fortune Games was so amusing, I just wished there had been more of it. I smiled, I teared up. I want to read more from Rodale.
