Tasty Book Tour Spotlight + Excerpt + Giveaway: What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale

What a Wallflower Wants
Bad Boys & Wallflowers # 3
By: Maya Rodale
Releasing September 30th, 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 from What a Wallflower Wants:

Prue forced her breath to be even. In. Out. In. Out. She willed her heart to beat in a steady rhythm as she tried to reclaim power over her emotions and fears.  Castleton’s gaze settled on her face. She peered up at him. This time she really looked at him focusing on his mouth, which was firm, sensual and smiling encouragingly. It wasn’t like The Beast’s tight and cruel smile. The memory of that made her stomach ache and her palms dampen. Everything about Castleton was different. His blue eyes had darkened in the candlelight. That friendly sparkle had been replaced with something darker. In spite of her efforts, her heart began to race. This was a mistake. She wasn’t ready for this. Her limbs tensed. Her lungs started to tighten and she couldn’t quite breathe. “Are you having fun yet?” Castleton asked her affectionately.Her gaze flew up to his. Ah, those eyes. Knowing. Dark. “It’d be rude to say no, wouldn’t it?” he murmured. “So you won’t say anything. How about now?” “I can’t explain what this is making me feel,” she said, her voice breathless. But, for two eighths of life, she wanted to make it through one dance. “Tell me,” he urged. “I hardly know you,” she said. She couldn’t even explain it to her best friends, because she hadn’t even told them what had happened to traumatize her. “I was born and raised in at Castlemore Court in Yorkshire. I’ve read over three hundred books. My sister’s name is Martha. I spend an inordinate amount of time traveling around the countryside, playing cards and wagering. I’m on a winning streak. And I hate turnips.”
