The Wallflowers are four young ladies in London who banded together in their wild and wickedly wonderful searches for true love. Now happily married, they join together once again to help one of the world’s most notorious rogues realize that happiness might be right under the mistletoe.…

It’s Christmastime in London and Rafe Bowman has arrived from America for his arranged meeting with Natalie Blandford, the very proper and beautiful daughter of Lady and Lord Blandford. His chiseled good looks and imposing physique are sure to impress the lady in waiting and, if it weren’t for his shocking American ways and wild reputation, her hand would already be guaranteed. Before the courtship can begin, Rafe realizes he must learn the rules of London society. But when four former Wallflowers try their hand at matchmaking, no one knows what will happen. And winning a bride turns out to be more complicated than Rafe Bowman anticipated, especially for a man accustomed to getting anything he wants. However, Christmas works in the most unexpected ways, changing a cynic to a romantic and inspiring passion in the most timid of hearts.

A Wallflower Christmas takes a trip to Victorian London, under the mistletoe, and on a journey of the heart. With her trademark charm, sensuality, and unforgettable characters, there’s no one like Lisa Kleypas to make you believe in the magic of Christmas.


Sweet, romantic, passionate, and angst-y. Those are a few of many words that I use to describe this book. 

A Wallflower Christmas is the last novel of the Wallflower series by Lisa Kleypas. Since all the wallflowers have, how to we say, graduated from Wallflower academy and are now happily married. The four ladies come together again to try their hand in match making. 

Rafe Bowman; the brother of both Lilian and Daisy, had arrived from America and is required, by his father, to marry Lady Natalie, or else he'll get cut off. The worst fear of a rake from a wealthy family, to get cut off and disinherited by their father. 

The book started off really well and it got me wanting more with every page I turned. It was engrossing, enthralling, and I was deep deep deep in the world of the Wallflowers − plus, reading it during winter time makes it twice as better. 

I loved every bit of this book, from the unrequited love to the sexual tension, and of course the detail of the Christmas decor. It's the perfect type of book to literally read during or before Christmas day. It really puts one in the mood to redecorate the entire tree and surround the entire household with Christmas cheer. 

A Wallflower Christmas, you will blush, you will smile, you may burst out laughing, and you will feel that passionate love between the two protagonists. It's the last wallflower book, and I am sad to see it end. BUT, I will be purchasing multiple other Lisa Kleypas books in the very very veeery near future.
