Wallflowers vs. Rogues: Book 1
Release Date: October 27th, 2020
Once upon a time in Mayfair a group of wallflowers formed a secret society with goals that had absolutely nothing to do with matrimony. Their most troublesome obstacle? Rogues!
They call her Beastly Beatrice.
Wallflower Lady Beatrice Bentley longs to remain in the wilds of Cornwall to complete her etymological dictionary. Too bad her brother’s Gothic mansion is under renovation. How can she work with an annoyingly arrogant and too-handsome rogue swinging a hammer nearby?
Rogue. Scoundrel. Call him anything you like as long as you pay him.
Navy man Stamford Wright is leaving England soon and renovating Thornhill House is just a job. It’s not about the duke’s bookish sister or her fiery copper hair. Or the etymology lessons the prim-yet-alluring lady insists on giving him. Or the forbidden things he’d love to teach her.
They say never mix business with pleasure. But when Beatrice and Ford aren’t arguing, they’re kissing.
Sometimes temptation proves too strong to resist…even if the cost is a heart.
Lenora Bell writes superbly, dialog-driven stories that almost always feature a rather unconventional heroine and a swoon-worthy rogue, which is a combo that just happens to be one of my all-time faves!
After being introduced to Beatrice in the final installment of the “School for Dukes” series, I was thrilled to see her story as the launching pad for this new series. Pairing her off, with the most unlikely match possible, was a pure stroke of brilliance.
Stamford “Ford” Wright may be a simple carpenter for the Royal Navy, but he is 100% the perfect foil for Beatrice as they match wits, break down barriers and enjoy a heated flirtation that lights up every page.
Pair this spectacular match with a bevy of unforgettable characters from the previous series, an obnoxious villain or two and one seriously overbearing mother and you have a fabulous read that will grab hold of you and not let go until the final page is turned.
