Publisher's Summary

England, 1805. Lady Wilhelmina Stanhope is ruined, and everyone knows it. Back in town for the first season since her downfall, Willa plans to remain firmly on the shelf, assuming only fortune hunters will want her now. Instead she focuses on her unique tea blends, secretly supporting a coffee house which employs poor women and children. If her clandestine involvement in trade is discovered, she’ll be ruined. Again.

No one is more shocked by Willa’s lack of quality suitors than the newly minted Duke of Hartwell. Having just returned from India, the dark duke is instantly attracted to the mysterious wallflower. His pursuit is hampered by the ruthless Earl of Bellingham, who once jilted Willa and is now determined to reclaim her.

Caught between the clash of two powerful men, a furious Willa refuses to concede her independence to save her reputation. But will she compromise her heart?

Willa-fully obtuse

I wanted to love this story. The premise was good and so too were the bones of the story. There was even a surprising revelation at the end which I didn’t see coming.

However, Willa…argh…despite her ruin seems to receive more lucky chances than a Monopoly game and fails to count her blessings. How much more does the Duke have to do before she realises he’s not hosting her pity party.

By ch.13 my eyeballs were rolling to the back of my head, so it was a relief when she finally had an epiphany and ceased being an ingrate.

The narration was ok - very expressive but female voices were a bit weird at times however I like this man’s storytelling, so it didn’t bother me.
