Author: Maya Rodale
Publisher: Avon
Release Date: 30 September 2014

In the third novel in Maya Rodale’s charming Wallflower series, London’s Least Likely to Be Caught in a Compromising Position finds temptation in a devilishly handsome stranger . . .

Miss Prudence Merryweather Payton has a secret.

Everyone knows that she’s the only graduate from her finishing school to remain unwed on her fourth season-but no one knows why. With her romantic illusions shattered after being compromised against her will, Prudence accepts a proposal even though her betrothed is not exactly a knight in shining armor. When he cowardly pushes her out of their stagecoach to divert a highwayman, she vows never to trust another man again.

John Roark, Viscount Castleton, is nobody’s hero.

He’s a blue-eyed charmer with a mysterious past and ambitious plans for his future-that do not include a wife. When he finds himself stranded at a country inn with a captivating young woman, a delicate dance of seduction ensues. He knows he should keep his distance. And he definitely shouldn’t start falling in love with her.

When Prudence’s dark past comes back to haunt her, John must protect her-even though he risks revealing his own secrets that could destroy his future.

Excerpt

Ever since her first season, Miss Prudence Merryweather Payton had known that she would never marry. By her third season, she had made peace with the sad truth that love and marriage were not in the cards for her. Which was fine. FINE. Truly, she was not bothered in the slightest at the prospect of a long, boring spinsterhood. Why, think of all the needlepoint or charity work she might do. Or so she had thought. But that was before the invitation had arrived. A delicately-worded missive, written in an elegant script inviting her to the 100th anniversary of her finishing school, Lady Penelope’s Finishing School For Young Ladies of Fine Families. With that invitation came the mortifying and heartbreaking truth: no graduate had ever taken more than four seasons to land a husband.

Except for Prudence. Until recently, she not alone in her matrimonial failures—her friends Emma and Olivia were also Wallflowers with hardly any suitors among them. Prudence envisioned a future for the three of them, living happily in a cottage by the sea. She had known this invitation, this ball, this moment would come, but Prudence always thought she’d confront it with her very best friends by her side. But then Emma landed a Duke and Olivia found love with the most unlikely man. She was happy for her friends—truly. No one deserved love and happiness more than Emma and Olivia.

Now Prudence was on her own. The last wallflower.
