The Wallflower Wager is the third book in the Girl Meets Duke series, and while it’s a stand alone story it is in my opinion better read after the first two books. The character from the first two books reappear frequently, which is delightful. Lady Penny is a quirky animal lover who takes in every abandoned creature she comes across - for good reason, as we find out later. Gabriel Duke (Mr. Duke, not His Grace), is a merciless business man who has just moved in next door to Penny. In a slightly too convenient plot twist, the two meet, and sparks fly. Between the animals, Penny’s friends, both of their backgrounds, a complicated relationship ensues. The story is entertaining, funny at times, dramatic at others, and is very much worth reading. It does have a trigger, hinted at fairly early on, and described in more detail at around 75%. More detail would be a spoiler, but something to keep in mind if you have triggers. While I did very much enjoy the book, I had to give it four stars rather than five for its historical inaccuracies and very modern thinking. It didn’t ruin the story, but it did make it a little harder to become engrossed in. I would still recommend the book, and the entire series. I was provided with an eARC of this book in return for my honest review.
