SCANDAL’S SWEET SIZZLE

“How then did you come by the name Rhoda?”
She sighed loudly. “Rhododendron.”
A pink flower, from what he could recall. Hearty for landscaping. “One of my favorite flowers.” He would not make a joke of it.
She chuckled. “Well done, my lord.”
Could he woo this prickly young woman? As the thought crossed his mind, he brought himself up short. He was not looking for a wife. Was he? And he certainly couldn’t take on a woman in her circumstances.
God, but she was a beauty though. And she tugged at him in a visceral way. His eyes searched her face; strong, high cheekbones; delicate arching brows, and lips, full, plump, the color of a pomegranate.
She watched him back warily, as though waiting for him to chastise her for such insolence. Behind her eyes lurked that combination of defiance and fear he’d begun to recognize. He quickly searched his memory for what he knew of various flowers. “The Rhododendron is one of the heartiest of flowers, you know. It’s from the evergreen family. Why wouldn’t it be somebody’s favorite flowers?”
She looked for a moment as though she might soften, but then straightened her spine. “You haven’t studied the language of flowers, have you?”
He hadn’t. He’d heard of it but considered it something frivolous – something suited for lovesick swain with nothing better to do with their time. “I’m afraid not. Feel free to enlighten me.”
“But of course.” She pinched her lips and narrowed her eyes. “The Rhododendron isn’t exactly a romantic flower. Whereas most flowers signify beauty, or devotion or other such nonsense.” She bit her lip and twisted her mouth into that brittle smile once again. “The Rhododendron leans more toward the macabre side of human nature. When you see a rhododendron, you ought to consider it a warning. In the language of flowers, it means caution. Beware. Danger.”
“That doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful,” he nearly whispered the words. He’d not meant to say them out loud.

“Yes! Another book from one of my newest favorite authors!!!! I have been waiting for the second installment of the Devilish Debutantes since I first read Hell Hath No Fury. I absolutely love this author and will buy and read anything she writes!! Her books are lovely escapes that have substance and meaning. As a SAHM, I am constantly bombarded with other people’s problems, but when I’m able to grab time for myself – THIS author has perfectly embodied everything I want in my ‘mini vacations’.” – AvidReader, Amazon
“Brilliantly charming! Romance, Comedy, and heartwarming…what more could you ask for! Love how their relationship grew with suspicion and it ends up with love. Some parts of the story were very heartwarming and I said ‘awwww’ out loud many times. And some things that had me laughing. You have to read it to believe it! I love the character so much that I drew the author fanart. This is a definitely a re-read for me. This was my first book by the author and I am awaiting for her next book. I cannot wait for what’s in store in the next book when she writes another! Brava!😍” – Carlene Michalk, Amazon
