After spending three London seasons searching for a husband, Daisy Bowman’s father has told her in no uncertain terms that she must find a husband. Now. And if Daisy can’t snare an appropriate suitor, she will marry the man he chooses - the ruthless and aloof Matthew Swift.
Daisy is horrified. A Bowman never admits defeat, and she decides to do whatever it takes to marry someone…anyone…other than Matthew. But she doesn’t count on Matthew’s unexpected charm…or the blazing sensuality that soon flares beyond both their control. And Daisy discovers that the man she has always hated just might turn out to be the man of her dreams.
But right at the moment of sweet surrender, a scandalous secret is uncovered…one that could destroy both Matthew and a love more passionate and irresistible than Daisy’s wildest fantasies.
Don't be shy! Listen to another Wallflowers romance.

I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.
Lisa Kleypas brings back all the Wallflowers and introduces us to yet another one in this short but sweet tale. Given the short length of the book, and the updates on our previous Wallflower's happy endings, she still did a fairly good job of developing the new characters in this book. It would have been better, obviously, if there had been more time to build on these characters, but all in all, it was another great read. Rosalyn Landor was as brilliant as ever, and her continued participation throughout the series certainly added to the feeling of "getting to know" the characters.
This is my favorite romance series of all, so far. The Wallflowers are all so endearingly unique and the books are never predictable, they are always laugh-out-loud funny, and much to my distress, cry-out-loud as well. Once again the narration is excellent! What a truly talented/gifted combination, writer and narrator. Rita should take another look at the series, and discover how wonderful a romace series could be.
I really liked this book in the series. I loved the entire Wallflowers series, and have a hard time choosing a favorite of the group. The writing was superb - very entertaining, funny and exciting.
I recommend this series and this author.
one of my favorites in this genre
I love Lisa Kleypas' lyrical writing style that keeps very much in line with the period in which she writes. Her characters are interesting and the storyline is well developed.
Miss Landor's performances never fail to be spot on!
Yes, the stories are little over the top, but isn't that why we read romance novels? they are pure enjoyment.
All business but contemporary fun!
Daisy is a charming innocent young lady who loves books and is unconcerned with marriage prospects until her dad forces the issue to her. Matthews character, which was not mentioned in the prior books, re-emerges In Daisy's life from their New York past. He is a tough businesman but the whole book is based on his secrets which unfold at once at the end of the book. That detracted quite a bit from the story as I kept expecting the big reveal instead of enjoying the journey.
Yes! It was entertaining.
I only give this 3 stars because it is an average book. It's highly enjoyable and entertaining, but is not earth shattering.
A busy Mum and Accountant. Listen to books while driving to work or sunbathing is my guilty pleasure.
Did not read the print version
In the beginning I got the impression this was written because the author had finish the series, not so much she felt passionate about Daisy's story. It seem so predicatable.
The middle it did become passionate, like the previous books, no real suprises but a good storyline. Unfortunately the end seemed so rushed as if there she was ending her word limit.
I have listened to the 4 of the 5 books of the Wallflowers.
It took a short while for me to get use to the period speak, and now it would be a contributing factor choosing a book.
The did laugh and cry during different spots in the book, but I won't tell you where.
Although the narrator does do similar voice for the characters in the series for the men (and yes I did listen to them all), the book still had a good plot and the characters endear themselves to you.
Lisa Kleypas is a good author and she is CONSISTENT! I can not say how important that is! With all the formulaic romance novels you need to understand good characters and their interactions. Lisa Kleypas does this.
