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.
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.
Ok, I absolutely love this book. I adore Gabriel, and his attempts to make Verity fall in love with him and I love how Verity just gets on with her life with absolutely no clue as to why he’s so nice to her.
Hmm where to start? Well I guess there’s the fact that the book’s first chapter is written from two male points of view – only one of whom is the hero – which is slightly unusual. Then there’s the older heroine (yay!) who has found it possible to “read and appear the perfect hostess at the same time.” As a bookworm myself, that really appeals to me!
