Review: The Wicked Wallflower by Maya Rodale




In the second in Maya Rodale’s delightful Wallflower series, London’s Least Likely to Cause a Scandal is taking Society by storm…
Being good has worked out very badly for Lady Olivia Archer. All she has to show for four seasons on the marriage mart is the nickname Prissy Missy. Her prospects are so bleak that her parents have betrothed her to a stranger with a dire reputation. If Phinneas Cole—aka The Mad Baron—wants a biddable bride, perhaps Olivia can frighten him off by breaking every ladylike rule.
Phinn has admired Olivia’s poise and refinement from afar…qualities that appear to have vanished now that they are officially engaged. This Olivia is flirtatious, provocative, and wickedly irresistible. She’s not at all the woman he bargained for, yet she’s the only one he wants.
He’s determined to woo her. She’s determined to resist. But Olivia is discovering there’s nothing so appealing as a fiancé who’s mad, bad, and dangerously seductive…




Lady Emma Avery is fabulous; the way she handles the Duke of Ashbrooke's arrogance and charm is practically priceless, too bad she needs a fortune to help get her out of the misunderstanding she's landed in. I don't know what I enjoyed more Blake's shock at Emma's immunity to his charms or his actual charms. This couple really won me over as did all the other fantastically developed characters. I loved the Game and Ashbrooke's witty aunt. It's been a few days since I've read the story and as I write my review I cannot stop smiling, a clear sign that I will likely read this story again and again. I cannot wait to read the next story in this new series. London's Least Likely ladies’ man made a lasting impression and I'm looking forward to Emma's best friends landing the men of their dreams.
