The Sinful Wallflowers, Book 3
About the book...
Lady Ophelia Darby exists in two worlds. In one, she is the impudent, willful daughter of a powerful marquess and darling of the ton. In the other, she moves through the underworld’s shadows as songstress Lady Starlight, protected only by the notoriously wealthy scoundrel Devlin Byrne. But when she stumbles upon her beloved father’s darkest secrets, the line between her two worlds quickly blurs. Now she needs the help of the one man a lady should never trust.
Devlin Byrne stands on the edge of London society, knowing he will never be accepted. No one else knows that his obscene wealth and ruthlessness aren’t without purpose. Or that his purpose has golden-brown eyes that shimmer with mischief, the palest of skin, and a lush mouth that beckons to be kissed, and deeply. But having Ophelia is only the beginning of Devlin’s plans.
It’s undeniable that Devlin Byrne is a dangerous temptation?but just as Ophelia begins to trust him, maybe even fall for him, she discovers she’s not the only one with secrets. And his would lead her down more than just the path of scandal…
Each book in the Sinful Wallflowers series is STANDALONE:
* My Darling Duke
* Her Wicked Marquess
* A Scoundrel of Her Own
So, any time I break out the fangirl pic, you know things are about to get seriously real.
Another add to the Sinful Wallflowers series, and another FABULOUS story for Historical Romance fans to indulge in! These ladies are far from the wallflowers that the ton has made them into, and in an effort to hedge their bets in their own directions, they've come together and made a pact, if you will, to live life on their own terms, seek our their desires, and make their own way in a world dominated by men, but held captive by the women standing subtly by.
I really enjoyed how this story began, in childhood no doubt, sharing with us just how deep their bond really was. The innocent beginnings that turned into long held desires that seemed as if they would never see the light of another day...and yet, fate showed them just enough mercy for a reintroduction; what they did with it from there is entirely up to them. Or was it? It's a time when the voice of one among the ton can make or break you. Your reputation as a lady, and your family name, are the most important things outside of lofty bank accounts, and stepping outside your class, in any sense of the word, is pretty much forbidden. But what's a girl to do when her father, lying on his death bed, reveals a secret, startling, yes, and yet making clear things you never before understood? What if after same said confession, a turnabout in health occurs...leaving the secret aired, and both parties with whom the knowledge lies at opposing ends of what to do next? It's a predicament that sends Lady Ophelia into a world of shadows and darkness, as she seeks to make sense of her world torn asunder, but she's not truly alone in her endeavor...
Enter Devlin Byrne...my somewhat latest book boyfriend, and mysterious shadow to our Lady Ophelia. With his connections, nay with his reputation alone, her safety is not in question...but what of her heart? There's something there just beneath the surface that aches to know more. The why, what, and who that are driving her mad with curiosity, and yet...in the telling, in the revelation, in the removal of masks painstakingly set in place, her world is about to shatter all over again. She'll gain knowledge of things she never knew she wanted to know. She'll grow to understand things between men and women that she and her friends could only speculate about. She'll discover things about herself, society, and those she holds dear that will shock, awe, and inspire, but ultimately, when all is said and done, Lady Ophelia will understand that life is only well lived if one embraces it with a full and open heart.
The highs and lows of love and societal demands will keep you turning pages long into the night, while the relationship between our leads will have you on high alert. You'll hope against hope that all turns out well, both in Lady Ophelia's quest, and Devlin's endeavors...and while it may not all be a smooth road to happily-ever-after, those bumps along the way create pure magic. A high recommendation for ADULT Historical Romance fans...sorry younger readers, but there's definitely adult content and conversation best kept for older ears/eyes. Even I never knew there were so many names for certain things between men and women...some most comical too!
