The last book in the Regency Romance series A Wallflowers Wish #5 showcases the story of Lady Abigail and Major Alex Mayfield.
A well written second chance at love Regency Romance novel with a hint of mystery, a sensible heroine and a nice guy hero.
This Regency romance novella is absolutely adorable. It’s short (only 69 pages according to Amazon) but beautifully written. Recommended for a short break on a week day.
The blurb is a pretty good description of the novel – the hero is trying to write his maiden speech but finds his writing style is a bit too flowery and overwrought, the result of his experience as a Gothic romance writer. He wants to be taken seriously – he’s got a lot to say about social ills – so he seeks out Prometheus’ help (who’s really a woman writing anonymously) to craft a better speech.
This book starts off very promisingly – a gentle hero and a sensible, older heroine are matched by his sister and a proposal ensues almost immediately. She however turns him down and for a very good reason in my opinion:
“For so many years I’ve tried to be what others expected and needed me to be… I should like to have my freedom for the time being, at least to try another way, to discover myself.“
