Summary

USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell pits a fiercely independent beauty against a devilish investigator.

Set apart by her ethereal beauty and fearless demeanor, Ophelia Killoran has always been a mystery to those around her - and a woman they underestimated. No one would guess that she spends her nights protecting the street urchins of St. Giles. Ophelia knows what horrors these children face. As a young girl, she faced those horrors herself, and she would have died…if not for the orphan boy who saved her life.

A notorious investigator, Connor Steele never expected to encounter Ophelia Killoran on his latest case. It has been years since he sacrificed himself for her. Now, she hires orphans from the street to work in her brother’s gaming hell. But where does she find the children…and what are her intentions?

Ophelia and Connor are at odds. After all, Connor now serves the nobility, and that is a class of people Ophelia knows firsthand not to trust. But if they can set aside their misgivings and work together, they may discover that their purposes - and their hearts - are perfectly aligned.

Moving Romance With Some False Notes

Although well written the 2nd in the Wicked Wallflowers series included too many instances where I found it difficult to suspend my disbelief sufficiently to fully lose myself to the story. Given the time period & the characters portrayed I believe a money hungary crime boss as evil & unfeeling as Mac Diggery would have sold the beautiful Ophelia into prostitution long before she reached her majority. Regardless, if you enjoy this genre Christi Caldwell is a good author & her books worth reading.

The Vixen

I enjoyed this story, but not as much as I enjoyed the first one in the series. I read both of them quickly and was never pulled out of either of them by stilted language. I strongly dislike when that happens, I get deeply engrossed when I read or listen or both. I will read the next book in the series.

Another great story in Christi Caldwell’s Wicked Wallflowers series. What a wonderful, twisty ending. Highly recommended!

Can’t wait for Wicked WallFlowers Series Book 3 comes out in Feb 2019👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

I think I’ve now read nearly every series of Christi Caldwell books, and Wicked Wallflowers Book 3 is coming out in February 2019, and I can’t WAIT...I’ve left so many reviews either on here or Audible. The love scenes are brilliant, sometimes the stories can be very much intertwining—but—there’s just something about the way she writes that I can’t put them down. Book 1 and 2 are basically attracted to the other side—the boys, basically their “hatred” ones on the street...yet, they are falling in love and nothing in their background will stop them anymore. I have no clue HOW Ms Caldwell will be setting up the next 2 books in this series, but I have NO WORRIES

If you read & listen you’ll also love my ‘bestest’ Narrator in the world...Tim Campbell—I’ve written about 10 reviews on the ones I’ve read and listened, maybe more, and all I can say is—she is my favorite Romantic British History Fiction writer—by far...

Profanity and child sexual abuse alert

Perhaps, the author commonly uses the F word. No one else mentioned it in review, so I will.

If 'child f'er' does not startle or offend you, read on.

Beyond that, there is far too much information dropped into the 1st few chapters to allow the reader to get into the story.

The characters are poster children for the accumulated woes of every abuse, and I'll bet its difficult to remember later who is messed up from what.

It's over the top, uninteresting, crude and a jumble of too much urgency. I'll pass.

It's impossible to not cry!

An amazing story of survival, forgiveness and love. You are taken through so many different emotions. Tim's performance is amazing as usual. You can hear each and every sentiment. If you do not cry at least once...I'd check for a pulse.

The best yet!!!

I loved this story, a great plot. Make sure you have some tissues handy. This has one of the most fantastic, emotionally gripping scenes I have read. I got this in audio, the accent of the narrator really adds to the book.
