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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
