About the Bad Boy Billionaire and Wallflower series:
Maya Rodale has taken the art of writing to the next level, with a delicious twist. The series features a modern-day heroine, Jane Sparks, who writes historical romance novels based on her romantic misadventures with Duke Austen, a tech entrepreneur better known as the Bad Boy Billionaire. The series includes Jane & Duke’s love story (the Bad Boy Billionaire novellas) and the romance novels Jane “writes” about three Regency era Wallflowers with few marriage prospects. Modern day wallflower Jane has been a good girl all her life until a sudden chain of events (including a sham engagement to a bad boy billionaire) are helping Jane break out of her shell. She’s been writing historical romances based on her whirlwind romance with Duke Austen, the very sexy, rather dangerous bad boy billionaire to whom she’s now engaged. Maya’s world building delves into the love story of “the author” as well as the characters, creating a more immersive experience for the reader.

THE BAD BOY BILLIONAIRE’S WICKED ARRANGEMENT starts off a new series about the sexy, whirlwind romantic misadventures of librarian Jane Sparks with an unlikely match—Duke Austen, the bad boy billionaire. The series is the fresh and delicious contemporary counterpart to Rodale’s recently published Wallflower series—a new historical romance trilogy!
Meet Jane Sparks. Librarian by day, aspiring writer by night, she’s a modern day wallflower in New York City who discovers that the sexy stranger she kissed at a fabulous party is none other than the infamous bad boy billionaire, Duke Austen. Of course she discovers this on Facebook—after her friend jokingly posts an announcement that Jane and Duke are engaged!
Duke’s hard partying, playboy reputation is jeopardizing a 150 million-dollar investment deal and he needs to do major damage control. There’s no better way to show he’s staying out of trouble than settling down with a seemingly “good” girl like Jane. It’s a brilliant plan—but he doesn’t count on just how alluring, irresistible and distracting he finds her.
As this tech entrepreneur and librarian embark on a fake romance, something crazy happens: they start falling in love. But Jane is secretly writing a historical romance novel (The Wicked Wallflower) based on their fake engagement and it threatens to destroy their carefully constructed romance…unless these perfect strangers are content to be perfectly scandalous together.
