Jeremy Cleland, the third son of the Earl of Hutton, had always wanted to help the more unfortunate, but he never wanted to become a vicar. Still, this position was what his father demanded of him, if Jeremy was to continue receiving his allowance. When his father suddenly calls him home, Jeremy knows that something is up, but what? He soon finds out when his father informs him that he wants Jeremy to uncover the identity of the ton's most scandalous author who writes using a pen name, the Lady of Dubious Quality, and shut her down. Although Jeremy has enjoyed reading the lady's works, he knows better than to mention this to his father. Although others have tried to learn the author's true identity, Jeremy's father feels that with his son's high moral position, he should be able to do what others have not been able to uncover so far. In fact, his father promised to increase Jeremy's allowance, if he would give him the information about the lady in question. His parents were also eager for him to find a bride. At a social event, Jeremy meets Sarah and the two soon become inseparable.

Society has dubbed Lady Sarah Frampton, the daughter of the Duke of Wakefield, as the Watching Wallflower since she is always watching and thinking, but never participating. After several seasons and four wedding offers, she is still unwed. But Sarah has a secret; in private, she is the Lady of Dubious Quality, the author of the very popular erotic fiction novels. She has no interest in marriage and already turned down four offers from some of society's best. But then they had only been interested in her father's fortune, not her.

As the attraction between Jeremy and Sarah grows stronger, they sneak off and get married and are extremely happy. Still, Jeremy must keep his investigation a secret, even from his wife. When the truth comes out, will it destroy their marriage, or will Jeremy be tempted even more by his wicked little wallflower wife?

Sizzling hot, TEMPTATIONS OF A WALLFLOWER, the third book in author Eva Leigh's THE WICKED QUILLS OF LONDON series, is a witty, sensual tale that fans of historical romance won't want to miss. Both Jeremy and Sarah are innocents, but thanks to the titillating tales that she has overheard as well as things she has read, along with her imagination all serve as fodder for the heated stories she pens. I enjoyed the interaction between these two main characters and the antics that Sarah and her two friends become involved in will keep you laughing. I cannot help feeling sorry for Jeremy who is put in a very difficult position, trying to find the Lady of Dubious Quality without telling his wife about his assignment and then the shock of discovering that his wife, the woman he loves, is the very woman he has been seeking.

Sexual tension, humor, interesting characters, secrets, passion, innocence and romance combine to give readers a truly delightful read. Although this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Still, if you enjoy this one, you may want to also pick up the first two installments; FOREVER YOUR EARL and SCANDAL TAKES THE STAGE. Whatever you do, be sure to pick up a copy of TEMPTATIONS OF A WALLFLOWER. It is a deliciously romantic tale that is not to be missed!
