Romance: Heroine lacks self-esteem and quite shy

Hi,
I'm looking for contemporary romance books where the heroine lacks confidence because she wasn't pretty as a teenager and got a bit bullied (I'm open to other reasons too) and even though she's good looking now, she doesn't realise it. As well, she's not girly girly (lots of make up and always well dressed). And although she's quiet and a bit shy with people she doesn't know and with attractive men especially and she's socially awkward (doesn't know what to say with new people), she's fine with her family and friends.
I don't mind who the hero is and how they meet. I really like small town stories and especially books by Kristan Higgins. Levi, Tyler and Liam from her books are some of my favourite heroes.
It would be a plus if heroine has a child and has a good friendly relationship with the dad. They fell out of love or something like that)

Thanks!
Sorry about the long post and all the requirements. I'm not even sure there're books like this out there :-)

Look at this, maybe it is like something you search for:

http://www.amazon.com/Nothing-Girl-J...e+nothing+girl

Getting a life isn't always easy. And hanging on to it is even harder...

Jodi Taylor brings all her comic writing skills to this heart-warming tale of self-discovery.

Known as “The Nothing Girl” because of her severe stutter and chronically low self-confidence, Jenny Dove is only just prevented from ending it all by the sudden appearance of Thomas, a mystical golden horse only she can see. Under his guidance, Jenny unexpectedly acquires a husband – the charming and chaotic Russell Checkland – and for her, nothing will ever be the same again.

With over-protective relatives on one hand and the world's most erratic spouse on the other, Jenny needs to become Someone. And fast!

Fans of Jodi Taylor's best-selling Chronicles of St Mary's series will adore the quirky humour in this new, contemporary novel.

I saw this on my Twitter feed and remembered this thread. I don't know if the first book is like you're talking about?

Oh wait, it said she was a wallflower, but it was capitalized, so maybe that was her last name, and not an indication that she was shy and awkward.

It's not her name, it's a series about several friends who are wallflowers, and each book of the series follows a different member of the group finding romance. I think they're Regency-era. I don't remember much about the books beyond that, so I don't know if they'd fit the OP's criteria.

Thanks for the recommendations. The first one sounds a bit weird but I'll check it out and I've read the 2nd one already. I did like it quite a lot.
