Maya Rodale’s new Wallflower series continues with WALLFLOWER GONE WILD and this book is even better than the last—which is saying a lot considering how well I liked THAT one!

“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…”

After playing by all the rules for four years on the marriage mart and now an unwanted engagement to a notorious lord thrust down her throat, Lady Olivia Archer decides that it’s time that she sheds her “Missy Prissy” persona and prove all those that have called her “London’s Least Likely to Cause a Scandal” wrong.

A well rounded cast of characters that completely compliment the hero and heroine…

After a disastrous first marriage to a tempestuous woman ends in tragedy and leaves Phin with the dubious moniker “The Mad Baron”, the last thing he wants is to marry another woman with a passion for scandal. When he meets Olivia, the attraction is instantaneous, but it’s her reputation as a stable and proper lady that prompts him to make a surprise offer of marriage to her father.

The journey these two take is chock full of angst—between Olivia’s efforts to frighten Phin away and his employment of a friend’s bad courting advice—and the romance comes with a healthy side of laughter.

There were many scenes when I found myself laughing out loud and others where I could have used one of the ladies fancy silk fans to cool down my blush.

As always, Maya Rodale has written a well rounded cast of characters that completely compliment the hero and heroine, a smooth storyline that flows effortlessly through the pages and as a whole, a story you will most likely want to read again and again.

Be sure to look for the contemporary companion book to this story—THE BAD BOY BILLIONAIRE’S GIRL GONE WILD—available now at most online and local book retailers.
