WHAT A WALLFLOWER WANTS – On sale September 30, 2014
About the book –
In the third novel in Maya Rodale’s charming Wallflower series, London’s Least Likely to Be Caught in a Compromising Position finds temptation in a devilishly handsome stranger . . .
Miss Prudence Merryweather Payton has a secret.
Everyone knows that she’s the only graduate from her finishing school to remain unwed on her fourth season-but no one knows why. With her romantic illusions shattered after being compromised against her will, Prudence accepts a proposal even though her betrothed is not exactly a knight in shining armor. When he cowardly pushes her out of their stagecoach to divert a highwayman, she vows never to trust another man again.
John Roark, Viscount Castleton, is nobody’s hero.
He’s a blue-eyed charmer with a mysterious past and ambitious plans for his future-that do not include a wife. When he finds himself stranded at a country inn with a captivating young woman, a delicate dance of seduction ensues. He knows he should keep his distance. And he definitely shouldn’t start falling in love with her.
When Prudence’s dark past comes back to haunt her, John must protect her-even though he risks revealing his own secrets that could destroy his future.
Prudence glanced at the Vicar. He caught her eye and hastily bowed his head and resumed his prayers. She wanted to tell him not to waste his breath. She wanted to tell him to have mercy on her in this moment. Everyone tensed at the sound of heavy boots crunching on the dirt and gravel road. Ominous, those steps were. Everyone was completely awake now. Prue’s heart thudded loudly as she looked at her fellow passengers. All of them pleaded with their eyes for her to sacrifice herself. “You can distract him,” Cecil whispered quickly. “While we escape for help.” “Cecil, please…” Prue begged, knowing it was useless. The very reasons she had assumed him safe doomed her now: he didn’t care for her, he wouldn’t touch her, he wanted only the distraction she offered. “Go on, Prudence. Please,” Cecil pleaded. He reached over her to unhitch the latch. The door swung open. He gave her a shove and then pulled the door shut. Because she hadn’t actually believed he would be so cruel as to physically shove her in harms way, she hadn’t braced herself. She went tumbling to the ground, landing on her bottom. Immediately a bloodcurdling scream emerged from within the carriage. Her eyes adjusted to the dark, she held her breath and peered under the conveyance. She saw moonlight reflecting on the highwayman’s polished black leather boots on the other side of the carriage.
