More Than a Match for the Earl

Harlequin Historical. (Wallflower Academy, Bk. 2). May 2024. 272p. ISBN 9781335596222. pap. $7.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Marilla moved to the Wallflower Academy three years ago. After being forsaken by one fiancé, she’s in no hurry for another, certainly not another earl. When her blindness leads to accidental amorous advances with Finlay, Earl of Staromchor, she’s aghast that her common sense failed as badly as her sense of sight. Finlay recently proposed to the sister of a deceased friend, out of duty and to allay the debts he left. After another friend wagers that wooing Marilla might harmlessly distract him from his responsibilities, Finlay realizes that relationships can be built on desire, rather than duty.
VERDICT Murdoch (Least Likely To Win a Duke) presents the second installment of “The Wallflower Academy” Regency romances, a slow-burn love story as alluring as it is endearing.
