Publisher's Description

After her father lost the family's fortune, Wilhelmina was cast out of the fashionable set and banished to the wallflower section. Taking a position as a social secretary to help support her family, she's mostly come to terms with her new status. But when her old friend Edgar returns to New York society for the first time since she rejected his marriage proposal, she's newly ashamed at how far she's fallen--and how hastily she dismissed him years ago. Her strategy is to avoid a face-to-face encounter at all costs, but he seems to have other plans. Will Edgar take advantage of their now reversed positions and make her regret her refusal, or is there still hope for a friendship between them--or something more?

At Your Request is an e-only novella that gives an exciting introduction to Jen Turano's new Gilded Age historical romance series, Apart From the Crowd! Includes an extended excerpt of the first full-length novel in the series, Behind the Scenes.

    I have to start by mentioning the names of the characters in this charming novella. I got a chuckle out of quite a few of them just by reading them out loud. I know that different names were popular at different times in history, but I think that the author had to have put extra effort into coming up with some very funny combinations.

    The rules that people were expected to follow within society when attending a ball seemed strange to me. I was surprised to find that there were definite class distinctions within the upper class. I didn't realize that there was a special area for "wallflowers" and that they were supposed to behave differently.

    I thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet Miss Wilhelmina Radcliff and Mr. Edgar Wanamaker. They were well developed and their background as childhood friends was very sweet. I'm very glad that I will have a chance to learn more about the other ladies in the wallflower section in the other books in this series.

    Only Jen Turano could put her heroine in the hilariously unexpected position that society wallflower Wilhelmina finds herself in as she attempts to hide from the man whose proposal she once rejected. What follows is a delightful romp, as Edgar and Wilhelmina work through their emotional issues, though not without a mishap or two.

    As an introduction to a new series, this is a delight, particularly when several wallflowers break the unwritten social rule and actually speak to each other. This definitely does the job it sets out to do, introducing characters and their social environment, leaving the reader anxious to read the novels to follow.

    Highly recommended for fans of Jen Turano or anyone who wants to give her writing a try, as well as those who love more than just a dash of humor in a Historical Inspirational Romance. I'm so glad I waited to read this novella until the first novel,Behind the Scenes,was released so that I can dive right in!

    At Your Request by Jen Turano is the introductory novella for her new series Apart from the Crowd. It is a quick read with the laugh out loud humor that I've come to expect from Jen's books. Can't wait to read the rest of the series and see what antics the characters get into!

    First, the disclaimer. "I bought a copy of this book when it was offered free. All opinions are my own." That done, AT YOUR REQUEST is a novella (which at the time of this writing is still free) that begins Ms. Turano's new series Apart from the Crowd. I read (and reviewed) Behind the Scenes (the first book in the series) which follows after this and it is nice to see the iceskating incident which is referred to in Behind the Scenes actually written out in AT YOUR REQUEST.

    I had to laugh at Wilhelmina's antics... crawling under a chair and getting stuck (at a ball!) and Edgar's equal misadventures (falling in the center of the pond, multiple times) and I loved the quick, quirky way their romance played out -- and it was even mostly believable that it could happen that way.

    The language is still very formal and stilted, and I do wonder where the author came up with some of the names (I haven't looked them up to see if they are real yet and I probably won't) but they do add to the quirkiness of the tale.

    If you love historical, regency style romance, you will love Jen Turano's new series, starting with AT YOUR REQUEST (a novella), followed by Behind the Scenes. I can't wait to read the rest in this series.
