  • It's a catastrophy

    It's a catastrophe. It started with a chair. Edward, the Duke of Thornfield, just fended off another desperate debutante trying to trap him, when minutes later, he is caught kissing Georgiana, a miss from the Yorkshire dales, in his library. Compromised, they must wed. But they both know it will be a catastrophe. What I liked was that Edward is a bit on the spectrum, suffers from social anxiety in large crowds or groups of people. Ironically, Georgiana also actively avoids crowds and social gatherings. She's a spinster with limited social exposure. Edward is very constrained by societal norms and expectations while managing his condition. In plain words, he's no cad and does the right thing, even though he was a rake at Oxford. Georgiana knows herself and is very comfortable in who she is as she is forced into her role of duchess. Witty banter, attraction and verbal sparring make for an engaging read. Recommend.

  • A spinster accidentally snags a duke

    Miss Georgiana Bly has a very thin thread attached to the aristocracy. Her mother, the daughter of an earl, married a mere mister, a mister who is quite inept when it come to the family finances. Georgiana and her sisters are so far down on the ton ladder, she never expects to ever marry. That is until she mistakes the Duke of Thornfield for a servant and is caught with him in an unusually passionate kiss. Edward, the Duke of Thornfield, at first believes Miss Bly is a schemer like all the rest of the single ladies at his house party. Even after he accepts his fate to make her his duchess, he has severe doubts about her abilities to stand by his side. To ready her for the position of a lifetime, Edward with his Aunt Agatha, begin giving Georgiana “duchess lessons” to teach her what her mother never thought to prepare her for. As things progress and the wedding date nears, the duo can’t deny the passion that flairs between them even if Edward is somewhat frosty most of the time. While Devon keeps an air of mystery around the reason for Edward’s personality traits until later in the novel, I understood his slow thaw where Georgiana was concerned. Georgiana was true to herself throughout the entire novel. While she found herself in a situation she never expected to be in, she wanted to learn all she could about being a successful duchess and wife. I really loved the little moments between the duo that brought them inches closer. By the time the end of the novel arrived, they were so naturally at the perfect place for their burgeoning relationship. Devon has a five star novel to begin this unforgettable new series. While we know Georgiana’s sister begins a romance in this novel, we don’t get all the juicy details. Maybe Devon will grant us the story of a jovial earl and another Miss Bly as the Never a Wallflower series continues. I received The Spinster and the Rake (Never a Wallflower, #1) for free. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review

  • Couldn't Put it Down!

    Have you ever sat through a movie needing to go to the restroom but afraid you would miss something good? That is the way this book is. From the moment Edward Stanhope, the Duke of Thornfield, finds Georgiana Bly sitting in his favorite chair and he kisses her you are hooked. There is definitely something going on with the Duke of Thornfield and I am a little sad that the author didn't explain the malady but Georgiana is determined to fix him. She sees a cold and distant Duke and she wants a warm and affectionate husband. Once I started this book I just could not put it down. The life and marriage this couple was building was so fragile that you pray that it holds together while at the same time looking for it to fall apart. Thank you Eva Devon and Entangled Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fantastic!

    This book will kill your reading slump. Right from the start, Devon sucks you in to the story of Georgiana Bly and Edward, Duke of Thornfield. The second these two are on the page together, when Georgiana mistakes Edward for a servant and refuses to leave his private library, the story flows in such a delicious way that you don't want to put the book down. She calls Edward's bluff of his threat to kiss her to scare her away and the two are caught into an unwanted marriage on both sides. What's particularly great about this book is both characters are so likable. Georgiana is smart and witty and unafraid to say what's on her mind...even to a Duke. Edward is that grumpy hero with a soft center that is truly a good person deep down, despite what he may think of himself. I loved that Devon wrote Edward to be on the spectrum and how he handles the challenges that brings. I love that Georgiana is put in an unwanted to very difficult position as she is not someone of rank before her marriage to Edward and still puts on her big girl panties and deals with it in the best way she knows how. The writing is great and this book was just fun. I'm looking forward to more in this series. 4.5 stars!
