Absolutely one of the most wonderful reads of the year! A dynamic high 5 stars for Temptations of a Wallflower by Eva Leigh. This story kept me attached and up all hours reading from the first page!
We first meet Jeremy, a country Vicar who’s been asked to undertake a very special mission and find out who this Lady of Dubious Quality is, she’s the author of the most sensual, passionate erotic novels out there that have captivated the ton. Jeremy is tasked with finding this author out and shutting him or her down.
Lady Sarah Frampton known as the Watching Wallflower to society is a quiet, shy lady who’d much prefer being curled up with a book or writing a book than hunting for husbands. However, her mother is insistent that she find a husband and drags her to a garden party. Here she hides herself away in a little nook that’s got just what she desires, a writing desk. She brings out her quill and paper and begins daydreaming until her mother finds her and drags her out. While at the party she is introduced to the host’s nephew, the holy yet dashingly handsome, Vicar Jeremey Cleland. She and Jeremy have a stroll through the gardens and to Sara’s surprise she can’t help but find herself taken by this country vicar and finding her imagination going wild with stories. Jeremy too finds himself taken by the shy yet beautiful Lady. There’s just one problem, he’s far below her rank in society’s eyes. Also, Sarah holds a very dark and deep secret… she is Lady of Dubious Quality, she is the one who pens these steamy erotic reads… the one who Jeremy is on the lookout for… Will Lady Sarah finally give in and find a husband? Will the true identity behind these steamy reads be revealed? Will Jeremy find her out?
This series just keeps getting better and better and Eva Leigh’s writing is just phenomenal and this story is pure genius! I absolutely fell in love with our shy yet very sensual Sarah. Her character just comes alive on the pages and what a perfect character, one so backward and shy and one who wants nothing to do with a husband and the marriage bed, yet inside her lives this very steamy and sensual imagination… and one that is not at all shy in the ways of the marriage bed! I loved that she’s a writer and has this very vivid and wild imagination. I also loved Jeremy’s character, he too is one so shy and his passions and sensuality are hidden by the cloth yet it’s soon to be sparked! Excellent storyline and plot and one that is filled with suspense and thrill! I absolutely loved this book and I can’t wait to read more! I highly suggest this whole series, you won’t be disappointed!
