Date Read: April 4th 2017

Goodreads

DARE TO FALL IN LOVE

Alexander Savage, the Duke of Blackshire, is known throughout the ton for three things: the burn scars on his neck, his ornery disposition, and the trail of broken hearts behind him. None of which would concern Miss Elizabeth Lacey in the least—if she weren’t living under his roof. As his grandmother’s companion, Beth is all too concerned with the moody and compelling duke. Incensed by his plans to banish the sweet dowager duchess to the country, Beth refuses to do his bidding. If Alex wants her help, he’s going to have to take her dare…and grant her three wishes.

Alex adores his grandmother, which is precisely why she must leave. A string of unfortunate incidents has him worried for the safety of everyone around him—including the dowager’s loyal and lovely companion, Beth. But the notorious wallflower isn’t as meek as she appears, and as their battle of wills heats up, so does Alex’s desire. He’s dangerously close to falling in love with her…and revealing secrets he’d rather keep hidden. How can he convince her that his darkest days are behind him—and that, for the first time in forever, his heart is true?

Read for Review (NetGalley)

I enjoyed this book, the second in the Wayward Wallflowers series. You can easily read this one if you haven’t read the first one, “My Brown-Eyed Earl”. This is the middle sister’s chance at love.

Beth Lacey is the companion to the Dowager Duchess of Blackshire, whose grandson, Alexander, is the current Duke. She believes that the Duke resides primarily at his country estate but then he comes to London and everything changes.

Alex expects everyone to jump at his bidding, but Beth doesn’t. He wants his grandmother to move to the dower house on his estate but won’t say why. Beth agrees to move with his Grandmother if he gives his Grandmother 3 wishes. He agrees as he knows someone is trying to hurt him and he doesn’t want anything to happen to his Grandmother, or Beth.

I won’t spoil the rest of the story, but you find out who started calling the girls wallflowers. I did enjoy this book and look forward to the youngest sister’s HEA.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me this ARC.
