All the Wallflowers books are excellent and get better and better as you get to know all 4 women, i was lucky and had bought all 4 at once and i say you should do the same so you'r not left wondering what is going to hapen.
This book has humour, fun, dancing and love, trust me if you enjoy reading then read this book. as it was my first romance regency type book its a good place to start off. ENJOY
Another read from LK that is just a little bit different from the usual in the historical romance genre.
The heroine here is definitely different. At times I struggled to like her, she was quite mercenary and determined to "marry a peer" by any means possible. Yet, I also admired her for it. While it did not make her come across as a particularly sympathetic character, she was doing the only thing she COULD do, given her circumstances and the time she lived in, to try and secure not only her future, but the future of her mother and little Brother. What other choice did she have? other then some very unsavoury offers. She could not just sit and wait and hope, she had to be pro active and maybe be a bit underhanded as time was not on her side.
The hero, Simon was great, again a man who had gone a different path and forged his own way, making himself something more.
If nothing else, it just worked to highlight the difference between men and women then - Simon a man born a commoner, decided his own future, forged his own path, made it to a position of power and privilege, yet Annabelle supposedly born into privilege, and being quite intelligent herself, had no option other than to be wife or mistress - who could blame her for being so mercenary and ambitious in trying to find a husband.
And I loved loved loved it once they were married. Annabelle learned and grew, and saw outside her narrow world of the Ton, to what life was like for others not in the small narrow view. And she grew as a person due to it.
Chock full or passion and romance, another excellent historical by LK.

When it comes to historical romance I'm usually very picky and I don't normally fall for those more Mills and Boons style history books. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Pix
