STORY: Pretty and popular, Miss Clare Westmore knows exactly what (or rather, who) she wants: the next Duke of Harrington. But when she twists her ankle on the eve of the Season’s most touted event, Clare is left standing in the wallflower line watching her best friend dance away with her duke.
Dr. Daniel Merial is tempted to deliver more than a diagnosis to London’s most unlikely wallflower, but he doesn’t have time for distractions, even one so delectable. Besides, she’s clearly got her sights on more promising prey. So why can’t he stop thinking about her?
All Clare wants to do is return to the dance floor. But as her former friends try to knock her permanently out of place, she realizes with horror she is falling for her doctor instead of her duke. When her ankle finally heals and she faces her old life again, will she throw herself back into the game?
Or will her time in the wallflower line have given her a glimpse of who she was really meant to be?
REVIEW: ‘Diary of an Accidental Wallflower’ is the first story in Ms. McQuiston’s new Seduction Diaries series and I loved it!
As soon as we meet the heroine of this piece, we know we’re in for a treat. She is outspoken, determined and a wee bit spoiled, yet I knew that I’d end up liking her because there was a lot of potential of growth in that character. It was hard to accept her actions at first, but the author made sure to fully develop her and with that, I could understand where she was coming from.
And as for the hero? I loved him right off the bat! Daniel was such a good man and had patience of a Saint when it came to our heroine.
When it comes to addressing social issues within the romance, I always find it hard not only on an author or a reader, but on the characters themselves and this story’s no different. The slow progression of their romance was a delight to read and vastly entertaining. It actually made the story feel more real.
I highly recommend this well written, very fun and sweet romance.
