Welcome to Wallflowers & Rakes, a place for romance novel reviews, romance trope unpacking and general discussion about all things related to the genre. My name is Veronica Douglas and although historical romance is my kryptonite, a little fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary romance will sometimes sneak its way in to the blog. Prepare for lots of exclamation points and ALLCAPS rants when I’m excited about a book, and awkward half-compliments and ambiguous innuendo when I don’t love it.

I’d love to hear from you in the comments section. If you have your own romance review blog, let me know and I’ll follow you!
