Temptations of a Wallflower

Eva Leigh. Avon, $7.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-0-06-235866-0

Leigh’s intelligent and emotional third Wicked Quills of London Regency (after Scandal Takes the Stage) proves that even the most demure ladies can hide a sexy side. Lady Sarah Frampton, the Duke of Wakefield’s daughter, has been nicknamed the Watching Wallflower. She must hide her identity as the Lady of Dubious Quality, the author of several shockingly erotic novels, to avoid scandal and shame to her family. When she meets Mr. Jeremy Cleland, a vicar and the son of an earl, she’s instantly drawn to him. Unbeknownst to Sarah, Jeremy’s father has demanded that he expose the identity of the Lady of Dubious Quality. Though Sarah and Jeremy’s brief acquaintance results in marriage, Sarah’s not sure that their newfound happiness can last if Jeremy learns her secret. Sarah is a refreshing heroine who insists on following her passion for writing. Jeremy is the perfect hero for her; despite his somewhat puritanical demeanor, he has a passionate heart and sees Sarah as a woman worth more than just her dowry. Leigh’s latest is a thoughtful and sensuous romance. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (Apr.)
