Quirky and fun-loving American heiress Daisy Bowman is the last unmarried Wallflower. Her exasperated father has informed her that if she can’t find a husband by the end of her third London season, she will be forced to marry a man she hates—the ruthless entrepreneur Matthew Swift. 

Daisy is horrified. A Bowman never admits defeat, so she decides to do whatever it takes to marry someone... anyone... other than Matthew. What she doesn’t count on, however, is Matthew’s unexpected charm, or the blazing sensuality that soon flares beyond both their control. And Daisy discovers that the man she has always hated just might turn out to be the man of her dreams. 

But when a scandalous secret is uncovered, it could destroy both Matthew and a love more passionate and irresistible than Daisy’s wildest fantasies.


My Thoughts:

Scandal in Spring was the last book in the Wallflowers Series, and it was bittersweet leaving behind my much beloved literary friends, Annabelle, Lillian, Evie, and Daisy, but what a wonderful happily ever after!

Daisy Bowman, Lillian's younger sister, was such a fun character, and one that I could relate to.  Daisy is known for always having her head in a book, and getting lost in her spectacular imagination.  Her father, has given Daisy a short window of time to find a husband, or she will be forced to wed his business associate, Matthew Swift.  

Daisy hasn't seen Matthew in many years, but what she remembers of him is a serious stuffed shirt, who always took great strides to impress her father.  Daisy is determined to find a man to marry, and isn't going to be picky; because she doesn't want to get stuck with Matthew.

When Matthew comes to England, she see's a gorgeous man that she doesn't recognize.  As these two spend more time with one another, Daisy finds herself falling in love, but Matthew is hiding a secret from Daisy; one that could put her in danger.  Will Daisy get her happily ever after?

Scandal in Spring was a wonderful love story.  I loved Daisy and Matthew.  She was the relatable bookworm, and Matthew was so sweet and devoted to Daisy.  He had always had feelings for Daisy, but she had never known how he had felt about her.  He genuinely was a good guy that was misjudged, and I was glad when Daisy saw him for who he really was.  These two set my speakers on fire!  Their romance was both sweet and steamy.  Ms. Kleypas has officially cemented a place on my favorite authors shelf!!!
