Scandal in Spring (Wallflowers #4)
"I want you to do everything you've ever imagined doing with me…" With those scandalous words, Daisy Bowman, the sole "Wallflower" yet to be married, seals her fate with the last man she ever expected to tempt her.
After spending three London seasons searching for a husband, Daisy Bowman's father has told her in no uncertain terms that she must find a husband. Now. And if...more
Thinking back on the other Wallflowers stories, maybe Scandal In Spring doesn't quite have all the drama, or even the passion (although Daisy and Matthew were passionate enough for me) of the oth...more
Book 4 in the Wallflower series finds Daisy Bowman, the only wallflower yet unwed, being faced with an ultimatum: Find a suitable husband by the end of May, or be forced to wed a man of her father’s choosing. Who is that man? Matthew Swift, Thomas Bowman’s protégé and the last person on the planet that Daisy would ever consider marrying.
Matthew Swift learns about the marriage ultimatum from Daisy herself. While he has secretly adored her for years, there are skeletons in his closet that would th...more
I loved the writing, the humor, the plot, well everything! If I could, I would have highlighted the whole book!
She was the most provoking, beguiling woman he had ever met. Thunderstorms and rainbows wrapped together in a convenient pocket-size...more
I really adored Daisy throughout the series and was really looking forward to her book, Daisy is such a dreamer and perhaps like many readers can relate to her more then the other wallflowers. When she forced to find a husband or get married to her father’s chosen man for her, she tries her best to find a husband and quick! What she doesn’t realize is her father’s chosen man would be the handsome and caring Matthew Swift, who I ju...more
Second read March 24, 2013.. yup read it in a day... that good!!
This is the fourth book, and perhaps my favorite in the Wallflower series. In the previous three books we are introduced to Daisy Bowman. The daughter of an American industrialist and entrepreneur. Thomas Bowman has brought his two daughters to England with the sole purpose of them marrying a Peer. His motives for this is so that his business connections will be better when he expands his Soap Empire t...more
Daisy's lack of success in the marriage mart forces an ultimatum from her father, Thomas Bowman. If she doesn't find a suitable husband within the next two months, she will marry her father's choice, Matthew Swift. This is Daisy's worst nightmare because she remembers Mr Swift as being an exact carbon copy of her father - cold,...more
Can I give this a million stars??!!!!
I don't know if I'm capable of saying anything that could come close to the worthiness of this book. It's LK. Enough said.
Honestly though, I LOVED THIS. I am battling over whether this, or 'Devil in Winter' is the best of the series. I keep coming up empty. THEY'RE BOTH AMAZING. BEAUTIFUL. MEMORABLE.
I love Daisy. She was the sweet, yet intelligent sister to Lilliane and the youngest of the wallflowers. She was magical and possessed a very...more
“The Lesson,” by Dita Joseph
★★★★★ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Ms. Landor is one of my favorite Historical Romance readers because she always gets the atmosphere right for the era. That, and her pacing is perfect. Here she convincingly depicts the outraged Daisy Bowman, who is appalled that her father wants her to marry his protégé. Ms. Landor adds dimension and emotion to Ms. Kleypas’ characters and I even cried over one conversation between Daisy and her sister, Lillian;...more
Check out the review and fantasy cast @ Under the Covers
Miss Annabelle Payton, Miss Lillian Bowman, Miss Evangeline Jenner and Miss Daisy Bowman used to be regular sights at the peripheral of a ballroom. This was before they formed an unlikely friendship each vowing to help the others out to find a husband by means fair and foul. Daisy Bowman is the last of the wallflowers to be wed and now her father has issued her with the ultimatum of finding a husband in the next few months...or he will pick...more
But I will say something about this book. I know it is not how everyone felt, but I have to say that this was my favorite in the series. I absolutely adore Daisy! She was amazing. And I won't even begin to talk about Matthew because I won't be able to stop. I'm not in the mood for a review, all I want to...more
Until now, the Wallflower series has been pretty good but not 100% satisfying for me like it has been for so many other readers. Based on the ratings I've seen at various book-related sites and the fact that I rarely see it mentioned as a fan favorite, it would seem that Scandal in Spring is possibly the least favorite book for most readers of the series. As such, I wasn't sure what to expect going into it, but now that I've finished it, I'm going to go against the grain...more
No wait, wrong story.
I meant to say: The Last Wallflower! NOOOOO! It’s so hard to say goodbye…
This is Daisy’s book, the dreamer/romantic/bookish wallflower. She has been husband-hunting for 3 years but as we all know men can be idiots and the girl is still single – and as so, her father sends for his most dedicated employee, Mr Matthew Swift, and tells Daisy she’ll have to marry the guy. Daisy can’t stand the idea, because she loads Mr Swift, who she thinks is the very image of...more
In the absence of a designated holiday read, Scandal in Spring was a lovely feel-good book to read at Christmas time, and was just perfect for my 100th read of the year (yay me!).
I have heard tell that Scandal in Spring was the weakest book in the series, and I’m happy to say that I didn’t find that at all. While it couldn’t quite match the fun of It Happened One Autumn (and also because...more
In all previous book we met the next match before their book was released. Even in the first novel we met Mr. Hunt in the very beginning before the season started and coincidently met Lord Westcliffe in the same novel. In Lillian and Lord Westcliffe's novel we met Sebastian but no where in Evie and Sebastian's book did we hear of Matthew Swift.
So here were are introduced...more
I think Matthew is probably my favorite hero of the four books, although Simon is close second...or maybe Westcliff...but then there's St. Vincent... Oh, who am I kidding? I LOVE all the men in this series.
I really have a thing for the unrequited love-from-afar story, and Matthew's love for Daisy is so real that it leaps off the pag...more
In SIS we get Daisy's story. Younger sister to Lillian Bowman (It Happened One Autumn), Daisy is the dreamy imaginative one of the self-proclaimed Wallflower girls. A typical head the clouds type a gal, you just know it's gonna take a special man to win her h...more
Daisy Bowman, Lillian's sister, the last of the Wallflowers. Short, but not shy of wit or courage. She can have a sharp tongue, but her heart is true.
Matthew, the bold American she loves (at first unwillingly, because Father selected him.) Extremely sexy, he is. And noble, trying to resist the delightfully rude and deliciously pugnacious Daisy, because his past has him in a chokeh...more
It was predictable and a bit boring. I wanted things to hurry along at times. Matthew doesn't really stand out as a strong hero like the other heroes in the previous stories and Daisy was too different from the other books where she appeared more whimsical. The steamy scenes were missing something too. Daisy's sister Lillian is a pain in this story, bossy, stuck up in a way and just...more
What can I say? Matthew was perfect for Daisy. The romance was fabulous. The sex hot. Westcliff became one of my fav Kleypas heroes (yeah, I'm still kinda shocked about that). The story was wonderful, and the ending was AMAZING. Like I said...WOW!
Oh, don't worry, Auntee (cause I know you're reading this and grinning). Sir Ross Cannon still owns me. Definitely still my...more
This was just wonderful! I loved it, loved it, loved it! Daisy is a romantic dreamer with a big heart full of wisdom, and she's probably my favorite wallflower gal. This was another remarkable addition to the enchanting, witty, and charmingly romantic Wallflowers series worthy of big 5 stars!
Kitaba dair ise sizlere söyleyeceklerim : PARDON DA NE DURUYORSUNUZ?
Ha bu arada seride ki favorimi-en beğendiğimi açıklıyorum: .....
Daisy is a precious heroine, I feel like we got to know so much more of her in this one. I loved that she is a dreamer and she has a love for reading. I think that describes myself and so many others of us and I adore that she'...more
