I was sent a free copy of To Kiss a Wallflower by Jen Geigle Johnson. All opinions are my own.
About To Kiss a Wallflower:
Eventually, all wallflowers will have their chance at love . . . This is where it begins.
The Wallflower’s Dance by Jen Geigle Johnson
Lottie Hughes likes people, as long as they aren’t too close. Does it bother her that no one asks her to dance? Yes, but she’s not sure how to drum up dance partners when she has almost no dowry, no title, and freezes up when anyone tries to talk to her.
When she suddenly inherits a huge amount and is the new center of attention all over London, her secret dreams might come true but also her worst nightmares. Suddenly everyone wants to talk to her.
Men ask her to dance. And she is inundated with interested suitors. She fights to stay close to the few friends she knows are true. One man saw her before her life changed forever. But does she want to accept his help when he, too, might be insincere?
Letters to a Wallflower by Heather B. Moore
Ellen might be beautiful and considered a diamond of the first water by Society, but she is so very tired of the pressure to marry a titled gentleman so that her beauty won’t go to waste.
When her cousin Dinah dares Ellen to attend a ball with no frills and to stand with the wallflowers, Ellen takes on the dare. What’s in the wager for her? The prize cuttings of her aunt’s extraordinary roses. But what Ellen isn’t expecting is Lord Ravenshire to engage her in the most interesting conversation.
When she confesses to him of her opposition in marrying for a title, he confesses his distaste of the London scene. They strike a bargain together, one which will either push them apart or lead to a future sweeter than either of them could have imagined.
To Marry a Wallflower by Anneka R. Walker
Charlotte Winters is destined to spinsterhood until she turns down an unwanted proposal and everything changes. With gossip rampant, her father attempts to salvage her reputation by betrothing her to another.
Soon she is sent off to her aunt’s to meet Lord Templeton, her intended. Anxiety-ridden, Charlotte begs her aunt to let her observe Lord Templeton from afar before their introduction. She never planned to pretend to be her fictional cousin to learn more about him, or to fall in love with Lord Templeton’s friend in the process.
Lord Templeton dreads returning to the empty halls of Newcliff Manor. When his father’s old friend, Mr. Winters reaches out for assistance, Lord Templeton finds himself returning home engaged to a woman he has never met. Desperate to learn more about Miss Winters, he befriends her cousin.
He wouldn’t have spoken to her, or lied about his identity, if he’d known the quiet woman would sneak into his heart.

What is wonderful about this book is that it is not one long story but rather three individual novellas detailing tales from a trio of well known romance authors.
Each one takes the story of the wallflower and gives her reader a tale we all know and enjoy; boy and girl meet. Boy and girl soon fall in love and boy and girl eventually get their happily ever after.
I do not think I am giving any spoilers away with that description. It’s why we read romance novels, isn’t it? We all want the the ride off into the sunset.
What I especially like about the way this book is put together is that each story is unique despite their similarities. You can read them quite quickly and end up with an ending that will allow for a good night’s sleep.
Not that there isn’t some romantic tension; it wouldn’t be a romance without a little give and take now, would it? These are “clean reads” so you don’t have to worry about what you might find between the end covers.
If you are looking for some sweet tales with happily ever afters this book will do that for you.
