April A-Z W is for Waltzing with the Wallflower

W is for Waltzing with the wallflower

A sweet regency romance, Waltzing with the Wallflower by Rachel Van Dyken, is one of the books you could win by entering the giveaway here at Charlene Blogs.


The Season has only just begun, but already Ambrose Benson Earl of Hawthorne is bored. That is, until his brother offers him a challenge.  Something worthy of his particular talents.

The object:  The girl hiding behind the potted plants:  the one in the horrible dress.

The Goal:  Turn her into the envy of the ton.  A lady suitable for a duke.

But there is just something about the lady.  In spite of all her social misgivings, something inexplicably draws him in, making him want to waltz with the wallflower.

Meet the author:

I grew up in a small farm town where cows outnumber people and tractors are more common than cars. I desperately wished to one day wake up and be a princess. My sister and I often played "pretend," though she was always the princess and I the prince or evil step mother.

Maybe that's why I write? I wanted to be the princess so desperately that I decided to write my own story. I've always been a dreamer and a thinker. I blame my parents for allowing Disney to pollute my mind, not that I care, considering I live and breathe all things Disney.

I went to college thinking I would change the world one child at a time via counseling...I ended up being a K-8 school counselor for around five years while getting my MBA....the whole time I kept feeling like I was not necessarily doing something I was very passionate about.

One day, after a terribly sad counseling session with a few young girls--I began typing. I've been typing ever since.

The book looks good, and I love the author's profile. She used what she knew, and wrote. Blog on!
