Sinful Wallflowers, a series of three historical romances by USA Today award-winning author Stacy Reid, is being adapted for television by Sologne Angelique Productions. The novels – My Darling Duke, Her Wicked Marguess, and A Scoundrel of Her Own – tell stories of women who boldly navigate the many challenges of life in a patriarchal society.
Moving forward, Sologne Angelique Productions CEO and Executive Producer Sologne Schumacher will work closely with Reid to create the television series. The production company is also currently seeking a streaming partner.
“Our company’s mission is amplifying the voices of historically excluded creators, and given Stacy Reid’s gifts as a storyteller, we knew she was someone we wanted to work with,” Schumacher explains. “When I read the Sinful Wallflowers series, I knew these were characters the world needed to see.”
Stacy Cantor Abrams, editorial director of Entangled Publishing and Reid’s editor, is eagerly awaiting the TV adaptation of Reid’s novels. “The Sinful Wallflowers books are bestsellers and fan favorites out of Reid’s entire backlist, meaning they represent the very pinnacle of historical romance,” Abrams says. “Now, we’ll get a chance to see these exceptional plots and characters transformed for the medium of television. It’s always an exciting process, and I’m confident these books will adapt particularly well.”
