What a Wallflower Wants
Bad Boys & Wallflowers # 3
By: Maya Rodale
Releasing September 30th, 2014
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 clutched her valise to her chest and took one soft step backwards, then another. And another and another. No one noticed, for Prudence had made an art of not being noticed. She heard the Vicar praying, loudly. Prudence knew that wouldn’t do any good—she knew firsthand that God didn’t answer prayers. The stout matron wailed. Prue wanted to tell her there was no point in crying. Cecil loudly made promises to the highwayman. She wanted to tell the highwayman that Cecil wouldn’t keep his word. She had just been jilted. During a highway robbery. Cecil ought to have protected her; instead he abandoned her. The Vicar hadn’t shown her any mercy. It proved to her, once again, that regretful truth: men never came to save the day. Once again, no one ever came to save Prudence in her hours of need. A girl was on her own. She’d do well to remember that. Thus, knowing better than to wait by the side of the road for a hero to come along, Prudence began to step quickly and quietly through the dark forest as she made her escape. Pine needles cushioned the steps of her thinly soled leather boots. The night air was cool against her skin and a welcome relief from the relentless heat of the preceding days. In her hands, she clutched her valise. She ran as fast and far as she could, until her lungs were bursting and near to bursting. Then she slowed to a walk and carried on, speaking softly to herself.
