TVBT: WHAT A WALLFLOWER WANTS by Maya Rodale (Bad Boys & Wallflowers #3) #Review #Giveaway @AvonBooks @Mayarodale

Print set of Bad Boys & Wallflowers Series
(Three Full Length Books)

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.

So, I don't usually read too many historical romances...why...I don't know...I LOVE Lisa Kleypas' Historicals and Judith McNaught, but haven't ventured out of my comfort zone, but I am SOOOOOO glad that I did with Maya Rodale's Newest Release, and the final in the Bad Boys & Wallflowers Trilogy, WHAT A WALLFLOWER WANTS.

John Roark...Just says it all...John Roark...If he isn't one of the best heroes I have EVER read, well then I just don't know romance.  He couldn't have been more perfect for our heroine Prudence, who I have to say, has become one of my favorite heroines in romance, and for those of my readers who read most of my reviews...well..let's just say I want all the heroes for myself...not too keen on sharing with the heroine!

Maya Rodale couldn't have done a more perfect job at writing such a delicate plot and weaving in a budding romance, while keeping the importance, and strength of the underlying message there at all times.  The beauty of healing is written at it's BEST in WHAT A WALLFLOWER WANTS.  John doesn't "save" her, well...not in the mental sense, Prudence herself is strong, he just gives her a push in the direction to start the real healing, and to feel empowered instead of afraid.  I swear, I couldn't have LOVED him more.  

Such a great romance, and an even better message to those who have been hurt by a similar tragedy...and God Does Answer, a Hero Does Come...You are NEVER alone!!  

Thank you Maya for a TRULY amazing book!!  (and on a side note...Now I have to go and read the OTHER two in the series AND the three Modern Day Companion Novellas...So much for sleep these days!)
