That Wallflower Moment…when the hot guy seduces you in the library

Not all wallflower moments are agonizing. Some are downright delicious, especially when the hot guy notices the girl, learns her name, and starts falling for the wallflower. After their fake engagement announcement in The Wicked Wallflower, Lady Emma and the Duke of Ashbrooke embark on a sham engagement so they might be named winners of The Fortune Games (the most devious house party ever). Their relationship is totally just pretend…isn’t it? Emma tries very hard to keep that in mind. The duke, however, is hell bent on seduction.

Excerpt: The Wicked Wallflower and The Kiss

“Are you saying that you are London’s Least Likely to fall for me?” Blake asked, towering over her. She stepped back until the bookshelves dug into her back. Blake placed one hand on either side of her, effectively boxing her in.

“That is exactly what I am saying,” she said. He was so arrogant. He set her nerves on edge. He played with her affections and her very grasp on reality. He made her heart race and he made her crave kisses that drove her to dizzying heights of desire. With a gaze from his darkened eyes, he made her dare to believe that she was desirable.

“And yet some say I am a master of seduction,” Blake replied in a low voice that sent a shiver shimmying up and down her spine.

“And yet here I am, hardly seduced,” Emma replied. Breathlessly. Dammit.

“We can fix that,” Blake murmured, tracing a fingertip along the edge of her bodice and along the swells of her breasts. She fought back a sigh and tried valiantly to recall why it was so imperative that she not be seduced.

Maya Rodale’s captivating new series introduces London’s Least Likely—three wallflowers who are about to become the toast of the ton




Lady Emma Avery has accidentally announced her engagement—to the most eligible man in England. As soon as it’s discovered that Emma has never actually met the infamously attractive Duke of Ashbrooke, she’ll no longer be a wallflower; she’ll be a laughingstock. And then Ashbrooke does something Emma never expected. He plays along with her charade.


A temporary betrothal to the irreproachable Lady Avery could be just the thing to repair Ashbrooke’s tattered reputation. Seducing her is simply a bonus. And then Emma does what he never expected: she refuses his advances. It’s unprecedented. Inconceivable. Quite damnably alluring.


London’s Least Likely to Misbehave has aroused the curiosity—among other things—of London’s most notorious rogue. Now nothing will suffice but to uncover Emma’s wanton side and prove there’s nothing so satisfying as two perfect strangers…being perfectly scandalous together.

  1. I honestly cannot think of a scene from a book that would fit this description. However, from my own life, every time I have ever entered a library, I sigh and immediately fall in love because I want to read every book there! Love books and looking forward to reading Maya’s “The Wicked Wallflower” and the entire Wallflower series! Sigh….

  2. I know I've read many books with seduction going on in libraries, but I can't think of a single title off the top of my head. I can't wait to read this book!


  3. I read a historical romance recently where the hero and heroine got pretty frisky in the library, but I can't recall the name of the book, darn it. 😀 I've read quite a few others as well in the past and I do love those kinds of scenes. Nothing does it for me like a well stocked library.

  4. I can't really remember a specific romantic scene in a library, though I know I've read a number of them where the heroine goes looking for a book late at night and encounters the hero in the library.
