Publishers Weekly Review

In addition to a strong plot, this story boasts actualized characters whose personal demons are clear and credible. The chemistry between the protagonists is seductive and palpable, with their family history of hatred played against their personal similarities and growing attraction to create an atmospheric and captivating romance.

Author Review

Christi Caldwell writes a gorgeous book!

-Sarah MacLean, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

Adair and Cleopatra

Christi Caldwell can tell a story like no other. As her Regency universe expands upon itself, she has taken her readers from the glittering world of the Ton with its incessant concern with propriety and scandal to Upper Ten Thousand house parties where ruin lurks in the next hallway to the agonies of wounded warriors returning home to deal with shattered bodies and shattered minds. But this multifaceted author does not stop there, no, Caldwell has ventured to take us on an imagined journey into the underbelly of London.

I loved everything about this story. The code switching amongst the characters was true to their stations and added flavor to the telling of the story.

I can't wait for the next installment!

I give The Hellion 5 stars.

The Hellion is the first book in the Wicked Wallflowers series, and I was so excited to get my hands on this book, I looked like a kid at Christmas. 

These books are not simple and sweet romances, but gritty, fight for everything you have romances, that seem to steal your heart, especially when Cleo is willing to help Adair build a club, despite crossing family lines, and Adair fighting for the one he loves.
In my humble opinion, The Hellion is an amazing start to a series, and I cannot wait for the next book!

The Hellion


The Hellion

There’s only one thing that threatens the rules of the game: Cleopatra’s secret. It could unravel the families’ tenuous truce and shatter the unpredictably sinful romance mounting between the hellion…and a scoundrel who could pass for the devil himself.
