The Viscount's Wallflower Bride Book Summary

“The Viscount’s Wallflower Bride” is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of “Violet” by Lauren Royal.
From a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

England, 1673: Lady Violet Ashcroft grew up sheltered in the countryside, far from the dashing gentlemen of the court—and that’s how she likes it. Here on her family’s beautiful, quiet estate, she needn’t fight off suitors who are only after her sizable inheritance, or play second fiddle to her prettier younger sisters. Love and marriage aren’t for everyone, and sensible Violet would rather spend her days improving her mind than risking her heart. Until a rather dashing gentleman shows up next door…

Ford Chase, Viscount Lakefield, has had it with women. Who’s got time for them, anyway, when there’s important work to be done? Fresh out of Oxford, Ford is ready to devise his first world-changing invention. All he needs is some peace and quiet on his neglected country estate, where there is no family to nag him and, most especially, no women to distract him—until he’s thrown into the company of the intriguing Lady Violet…

PLEASE NOTE: This book is the SWEET & CLEAN version of “Violet” by Lauren Royal. If you’d prefer to read the original book, which includes steamy love scenes and stronger language, look for “Violet.”


A complete, standalone story—no cliffhangers!

The Viscount's Wallflower Bride - Lauren Royal & Devon Royal Reviews

  • A viscount wallflower bride

    By Trena10
    Wonderful romantic book that can be read by all. Unbelievably creative with humor, mischief and much more woven with the thread of compassion and love.
  • Sweet and adorable romance!

    By Teri Donaldson
    Every time I complete a Chase family book, I say that it is my favorite. That's until the next one comes along. This is no exception with Ford and Violet's story. Violet is a girl after my onw heart. She would rather be smart than pretty. She would rather read philosophy books than go to a ball. About to turn 18, her sisters consider her an almost spinster. Ford would rather invent things than take care of his estate. He wants to perfect the watch with a minute hand, but has no interest in patenting it if he is successful. Ford and Violet are next door neighbors. Violet's mother, Mum, is the town matchmaker and she has her sight set on these two. She is successful with her matches and feels that this match is worth pursuing. I loved that they eased into their relationship and that Violet continued to be unsure of Ford's motives. No jumping in for that girl! Ford was convinced that there was no woman for him after his long time girl ran off with another (not that he was too disappointed). The spectacles were such a thoughtful gift and the book of instructions was so funny. I have never seen that in a Regency romance. You'll need to read this book to learn about both. I love Lauren and Devon's writing. These sweet romance books make me smile. I cannot wait to read Lily's story! I received a free review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

  • Can a nerdy girl find love?

    By Jps621
    Can a nerdy girl find romance in an era when a woman is valued mostly for her looks and rarely for her brain? I love this sweet and clean book. It is beautifully written and could easily be enjoyed by anyone. It would be good for a book club or even a mother/ daughter to read together. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
  • Great romance!

    By Charming Rose
    I received a free review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved this book. I love how Ford and Violet are both from eccentric families so they understand that about each other. What love would be worth it if you didn't have obstacles in the way like Ford and Violet do?
