Fans of historical romance authors Lorraine Heath and Sophie Jordan will adore Vivienne Lorret's latest Wallflower Wedding novel.
Delaney McFarland is on the hunt for a husband—preferably one who needs her embarrassingly large dowry more than a dutiful wife. After the unspeakable incident at her debut, Delaney knows marrying for love is off the table, but a marriage of convenience—one that leaves her free to live the life she chooses—is the next best thing, never mind what that arrogant, devilishly handsome Mr. Croft thinks. Delaney plans to marry for money … or not at all.
Ever since the fiery redhead burst into his life—in a most memorable way—Griffin Croft hasn't been able to get Miss McFarland out of his mind. Now, with the maddening woman determined to hand over her fortune to a rake, Griffin knows he must step in. He must help her. He must not kiss her. But when Griffin's noble intentions flee in a moment of unexpected passion, his true course becomes clear: tame Delaney's wild heart and save her from a fate worse than death … a life without love.
My Review:
Three Stars
Copy received for an honest review
I've never read Vivienne Lorrett before so I was not sure what to expect.  That she was compared to Lorraine Heath was enough to peak my interest since she is one of my favorite writers.  I also love a good wallflower story. 

I liked the originality of the story.  Delaney has dealt with some humiliating events in her coming out and also with the embarrassing amount her father has put aside for her dowry.  Although this is part of a series I did not feel like I missed anything.  I have to confess the first couple of pages I was a little confused but everything started to fall into place.  Delaney was a great heroine, at times a little on the dramatic side but overall a fun heroine that I enjoyed.

Griffin, the hero, was also fun. They had great chemistry and great banter.  I loved that the author showed him with his family, it gave a different perspective to Griffin.  Although Delaney is determined to avoid Griffing it quickly becomes apparent that he is the answer to all her problems and although he wants to stay out of her life, Griffin quickly realizes that he needs to step in and help Delaney.  I knew that this was a romance novel but I wan not expecting the adventure, that was a nice touch.  Overall, I enjoyed the book and found it to be fun. I put it down a couple of times and came back to it and it was worth the read.

Author Info
I fell in love with fairy tales and the romance behind happily ever after at a very young age. Like a lot of you, I tweaked the fables bit by bit in my imagination until they suited me perfectly. By the time I was eleven, a teacher encouraged me to start writing.
Throughout the years that followed, my teachers remained my most fervent supporters, giving me the tools I needed to continue my journey as a writer.
My husband and I have two teenage boys, who are heroes in their own right. For now, we live in a small Midwestern town near Lake Michigan…until a time in the future when a new adventure calls us to other shores.
I am currently working on my next novel, but I always enjoy hearing from my readers. Feel free to email me at vivienne@vivlorret.net
