Image of Wallflower Gone Wild

It’s one wallflower down, two to go, in Rodale’s delightful, humorous and sexy series. There’s just the right bits of mirth and poignancy as this good girl finds the way to win her bad boy — or maybe it’s the other way around. Rodale gives readers a slow-building romance, as the characters learn to fulfill each other’s emotional needs.

Being a model of propriety hasn’t helped Lady Olivia Archer find a husband. After three seasons all she’s earned is the sobriquet “Prissy Missy.” Her parents are so desperate they accept suit from Phinneas Cole aka the Mad Baron. Olivia is horrified — he has been accused of killing his wife! Her only hope is to ruin her betrothal by becoming a scandalous bride to be. Studious Phinn desires a quiet bride, but his slightly naughty betrothed has him leaving science behind to pursue her, even if he has to pose as someone else. Olivia might oppose him, but he’s not taking no for an answer. (AVON, Apr., 350 pp., $7.99)
