A Wallflower Christmas

Author: Lisa Kleypas    Series: Wallflowers #5

It’s Christmastime in London and Rafe Bowman has arrived from America for his arranged meeting with Natalie Blandford, the very proper and beautiful daughter of Lady and Lord Blandford. His chiseled good looks and imposing physique are sure to impress the lady-in-waiting, and if it weren’t for his shocking American ways and wild reputation, her hand would already be guaranteed.
Before the courtship can begin, Rafe realizes he must learn the rules of London society. But when four former Wallfowers try their hand at matchmaking, no one knows what will happen. And winning a bride turns out to be more complicated than Rafe Bowman anticipated, especially for a man accustomed to getting anything he wants.

However, Christmas works in the most unexpected ways, changing a cynic to a romantic and inspiring passion in the most timid of hearts.

This book may contain explicit intimate scenes, so if you are not 18+ then I probably wouldn’t recommend it for younger readers.
My Review

First off lets say, that Lisa Kleypas can do no wrong in my book when it comes to penning historical romances. I feel that I never will be disappointed with her novels that she is that good.

“This is how we court girls in America. We grab them and kiss them. And if they don’t like it, we do it again, harder and longer, until they surrender. It saves us hours of witty repartee.”

With A Wallflower Christmas, you have a different take on this series, this time the male perspective of the courting scene of London society. I loved Rafe, boy was he a mischievous naughty man (he even said something about Hannah brings out the devil in him). I loved all the scenes with him and Hannah, I don’t think I could pick one favorite because they all were that good. He was frank and very forward with his way of things, especially his feelings for her.

“Something about her brings out the devil in me.”
“Beautiful Hannah. If you were mine, I’d lay you on silk sheets and wrap you up in ropes of pearls, and feed you honey from a silver spoon. Of course, you wouldn’t be able to make all your high-minded judgments if you were a fallen woman…but you wouldn’t care. Because I would pleasure you, Hannah, every night, all night, until you forgot your own name. Until you were willing to do things that would shock you in the light of day. I would debauch you from your head down to your innocent little toes-” “Oh, I despise you…”

And the love letter he wrote… Pull out the smelling salts ladies because it will make you swoon! Sure it was a little naughty but the meaning – oh lord… *Fans myself* He was a delectable cad of a man.

If only I could visit you as a foreigner goes into a new country, learn the language of you, wander past all borders into every private and secret place, I would stay forever. I would become a citizen of you. […] You would say it’s too soon to feel this way. You would ask how I could be so certain. But some things can’t be measured by time. Ask me an hour from now. Ask me a month from now. A year, ten years, a lifetime. The way I love you will outlast every calendar, clock, and every toll of every bell that will ever be cast.
“Hannah leaned her face against his chest, and he felt the curve of her smile. “What is it?” he asked. “Our first night together. And our first morning will be Christmas.” Rafe patted her naked hip. “And I’ve already unwrapped my present.” “You’re rather easy to shop for,” she said, making him laugh. “Always. Because Hannah, my love, the only gift I’ll ever want” —he paused to kiss her smiling lips— “is you.”

With this being the last in the Wallflower series, I am a bit sad to see them go. But then another part of me is a bit giddy to start the Hathaway series and get to discover their memorable characters as I got the pleasure of discovering the Wallflower ones.
