Meet Jane Sparks, librarian by day, aspiring writer by night. She’s a modern day wallflower trying to make it in New York City. Jane’s discovered who’s the stranger she kissed at a fabulous party—but in a shocking and unexpected way. Her friend has jokingly posted a Facebook announcement that Jane is engaged to none other than bad boy billionaire Duke Austen! Duke’s hard partying, playboy reputation is jeopardizing a 150 million-dollar investment deal and he needs to do major damage control. What’s the perfect solution? Settling down with a seemingly “good” girl like Jane. But he didn’t realize how alluring, irresistible and distracting Jane is.
Things with Jane and Duke are going better than expected, until Jane’s historical romance novel (The Wicked Wallflower) threatens to expose the whole charade. There are just too many uncanny similarities to her real-life whirlwind engagement…unless these perfect strangers can be perfectly scandalous together.
THE BAD BOY BILLIONAIRE’S WICKED ARRANGEMENT kicks off the sexy, new series and is the counterpart for Rodale’s recently published Wallflower series—a new historical romance trilogy!

Who’s that girl? Meet the heroine who captured the heart of the bad boy billionaire
By Maya Rodale
What’s not to love about a bad boy billionaire? Modern day Wallflower Jane Sparks can’t think of any reasons not to…other than the possible broken heart. But his kisses are damn hard to give up. Here’s what you need to know about the girl who captures the heart of Duke Austen, the bad boy billionaire.
1. She’s a small town girl, living in the big city. After one really bad day in which she lost her job and got dumped by her boyfriend of twelve years, Jane does the sensible thing: ditches her small town life and moves to New York City for bigger and better adventures.
2. She’s a librarian by day…A lifelong book lover and librarian, Jane lands a job at the New York Public Library. True fact: I had a really awesome day researching NYPL! It’s definitely a great place to visit in the city.
3. …And a romance novelist by night. She’s always kept a stack of romance novels under the bed, but now she’s determined to write one. The problem: she doesn’t have an idea for a story. The solution: Duke Austen, the bad boy billionaire. He definitely gives her something to write about (and it’s The Wicked Wallflower, a historical romance).
4. The hero calls her Sweater Set. Because Jane wears sweater sets. She’s a good girl who plays by the rules, likes things just so and hasn’t done a daring thing in her life. Until now…Duke tempts her in ways she never imagined (and gives her pleasure she’s never imagined). Soon enough this good girl is breaking all the rules.
