The Wallflower Wager by Tessa Dare

I’ve said it before and here I am saying it again – I have no idea why I haven’t read these books before! Consider me a convert…

They call him the Duke of Ruin.
To an undaunted wallflower, he’s just the beast next door.

Wealthy and ruthless, Gabriel Duke clawed his way from the lowliest slums to the pinnacle of high society—and now he wants to get even.

Loyal and passionate, Lady Penelope Campion never met a lost or wounded creature she wouldn’t take into her home and her heart.

When her imposing—and attractive—new neighbour demands she clear out the rescued animals, Penny sets him a challenge. She will part with her precious charges, if he can find them loving homes.

Rising to the challenge, Gabriel, who wouldn’t know a loving home from a workhouse, is bewitched by the shyly pretty spinster who defies his every attempt to resist. But now she’s set her heart and mind on saving him.

Not if he ruins her first.

The main characters, Gabriel and Lady Penelope, are to die for – I loved their first meeting so much. It was funny yet cute and sexy all at the same time.

Their story is beautiful and requires a lot of discretion to make it work. She works on fixing him and he champions her wholeheartedly. How could they not fall in love with that being the case?

Thanks so much Netgalley and Mills & Boon UK for the advance copy of this book in return for an honest review.

You can get your hands on this book when it’s published on August 13, 2019.

Mother of Dragons, rugby coach and eternal dreamer. I love nothing more than being lost down the rabbit hole of books and my Kindle. With a pinch of empowerment, a teaspoon of solitude and the odd G&T I'm not shy of an opinion or letting you know what passions stir my mind! Musings of a binge reader.
