Her dream is to open a music hall. Only one thing stands in her way—the man she loves. The final Wicked Wallflowers novel from USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell.

Leaving behind her life as a courtesan and madam, Clara Winters is moving far from the sinful life to which she was accustomed in the gaming hell the Devil’s Den. Her more reputable and fulfilling endeavor is a music hall for the masses. One night, when she sees a man injured on the streets of East London, she rushes to his aid and brings him home. It’s then that she discovers he’s Henry March, Earl of Waterson, and a member of Parliament. No good can come from playing nursemaid to a nobleman.

When Henry rouses to meet his savior in blonde curls, he is dazzled. This smart and loving spitfire challenges his every notion of the lower classes—and every moment together is a thrill. But after Henry returns to his well-ordered existence, he strikes a political compromise that has unintended consequences. Will his vision for London mean dashing the dreams of his lovely guardian angel?

At last we have the fifth installment of the Wicked Wallflowers and I'm thrilled to get to read Clara's book. This book is not a fluffy upper-class book, this is a book about an ex-prostitute finding her own happiness, and for Clara, that means starting her own music hall! A place where she can be safe and her own boss. But that all changed in an instant when she saves a man from being murdered and she possibly destroys her own future. 

Henry March, Earl of Waterson is a Member of Parliament, is determined to get the New Police force approved by parliament, in order to protect everyone in England, something that he couldn't do for his own sister, but when he is attacked he thinks that his life is over, until Clara saves him and evokes than just gratitude. 

I really enjoyed The Spitfire, it has such a refreshing take on a regency romance. I have really enjoyed the author Christi Caldwell Wallflower series, where she focused on the not so glamorous part of regency life, reinforcing the stance that everyone deserves their Happy Ever After. 

I give The Spitfire 5 stars!

USA Today Bestselling author, Christi Caldwell blames Judith McNaught's "Whitney, My Love," for luring her into the world of historical romance. While sitting in her graduate school apartment at the University of Connecticut, Christi decided to set aside her notes and try her hand at writing romance. She believes the most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections and she rather enjoys tormenting them before crafting a well-deserved happily ever after! 

Christi makes her home in Southern Connecticut where she spends her time writing, chasing around her feisty six-year-old son and caring for her twin princesses in training!
