1824: 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.

I fell asleep several times while trying to read this book. Really liked the hero, but heroine, while interesting was annoying. I stopped reading at the point where she wanted to pretend to be married at a ball. But what about *after* the ball? You could only marry once back then, so you couldn't fake it and then really get married later to someone else. You could pull something off like that today, but not back then. Stopped reading at this point.

The third in the enjoyable Wallflower series, WHAT A WALLFLOWER WANTS covers many serious topics (facing a life of spinsterhood, marriages of friends, a lack of resources, and, most significantly, sexual assault) with a wonderful blend of levity, romance, and honesty. Roark and Prue are wonderful characters.

" One had a title, a country estate, and a fortune; one had nothing of value, but everything that really mattered."
