How To Woo a Wallflower

Harlequin Historical. (Society’s Most Scandalous, Bk. 1). Aug. 2022. 288p. ISBN 9781335723352. pap. $6.75. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Lady Harriet Fitzroy is trying to live her life unburdened by by a leg injury that she incurred in a horseback riding accident and now views as a serious limitation. She now finds that socializing is difficult and that society has little place for her. The Earl of Beaufort, Jasper, returns to his stomping grounds and is entranced by Harriet’s joie de vivre and sense of self. Unfortunately, his history as a rake and his child born out of wedlock throw a wrench into his wishes to settle down.
VERDICT Heath’s (The Earl’s Inconvenient Houseguest) series launch, with a slow-burn romance and a heroine with a disability, is sure to woo fans of Regency romances; both leads are well-drawn and relatable.
