"Wealthy and ruthless, Gabriel Duke clawed his way from the lowliest slums to the pinnacle of high society--and now he wants to get even. Loyal and passionate, Lady Penelope Campion never met a lost or wounded creature she wouldn't take into her home and her heart. When her imposing--and attractive--new neighbor demands she clear out the rescued animals, Penny sets him a challenge. She will part with her precious charges, if he can find them loving homes. Done, Gabriel says. How hard can it be to find homes for a few kittens? And a two-legged dog. And a foul-mouthed parrot. And a goat, an otter, a hedgehog...Easier said than done, for a cold-blooded bastard who wouldn't know a loving home from a workhouse. Soon he's covered in cat hair, knee-deep in adorable, and bewitched by a shyly pretty spinster who defies his every attempt to resist. Now she's set her mind and heart on saving him. Not if he ruins her first."--Page 4 of cover

It's worth reading if only for the rescue scene between the goat and 3 men full of'll burst out laughing.

Another cute, witty and sweet installment of the Wallflower series from Tessa Dare. Without any spoilers my favourite parts involved a goat and three gentlemen and a foul mouthed parrot... enjoy!

Another witty and wonderful historical romance in the Girl Meets Duke Series. And, again, some of the best scenes involve the Duke of Ashbury. Love that man and his irascible demeanor. Gabriel, aka The Duke of Ruin, was a fabulous hero in his own right. I always enjoy a brooding hero who slowly reveals his softer side to a tenacious heroine. Getting to know Lady Penelope beyond the quirky animal rescuer we’ve met in earlier books, was enlightening. Not only quirky and loving, but also hiding a devastatingly sad secret from her past. The author handled that element with sensitivity and with a satisfying comeuppance towards the end. I loved the humor, romance, and subtle drama in this series and eagerly wait for the next story.

Review excerpt: "'The Wallflower Wager' delivered many things I love with humor, pathos, and sexy times. It involves a woman who loves everything and everyone and a Very Bad Man who is helpless against her powers. It also involves animal rescue. While there are some structural flaws and the pace of the character revelations bothered me, I ate it up."
