A Wallflower Christmas

A Wallflower Christmas is the latest in the Wallflower series by Lisa Kleypas. From the back cover.~

The Wallflowers are four young ladies in London who banded together in their wild and wickedly wonderful searches for love. Now happily married, they join together once again to help one of the world's most notorious rogues realize that happiness might be right under the mistletoe...

It's Christmastime in London and Rafe Bowman has arrived from America for his arranged meeting with Natalie Blandford, the very proper and beautiful daughter of Lady and Lord Blandford. His chiseled good looks and imposing physique are sure to impress the lady-in-waiting, and if it weren't for his shocking American ways and wild reputation, her had would already be guaranteed. Before the courtship can begin, Rafe realizes he must learn the rules of London society. But when four former Wallflowers try their hand at matchmaking, no one knows what will happen. And winning a bride turns out to be more complicated than Rafe Bowman anticipates, especially for a man accustomed to getting anything he wants. However, Christmas works in the most unexpected ways, changing a cynic to a romantic and inspiring passion in the most timid of hearts.

A Wallflower Christmas takes a trip to Victorian London, under the mistletoe, and on a journey of the heart. With her trademark charm, sensuality, and unforgettable characters, there's no one like Lisa Kleypas to make you believe in the magic of Christmas.

I loved every minute of A Wallflower Christmas. It was so much fun to see what had become of each of the Wallflowers. When Rafe arrives to court Natalie Blandford, he must first convince her cousin, Hannah Appleton, that he is worthy of Natalie. Rafe only has one problem with courting Natalie, he is completely attracted to Hannah. I enjoyed watching the romance between Rafe and Hannah develop, while both tried to fight their feelings. With the help of the Wildflowers, Rafe and Hannah each find a way to admit their true feelings.

Lisa Kleypas gives the reader another winner with A Wallflower Christmas. I've only tried Lisa's historical romances so far, and have loved them all. I look forward to giving her contemporary romances a try in the future.
