New York Times and USA Today Bestseller They call him the Duke of Ruin. To an undaunted wallflower, he's just the beast next door. 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.… (mer)

t is the first time in many years that I have read all the books that have been published as part of the quartet 'Girl Meets Duke.'
'The Wallflower Wager' is my favorite of the series for the time being. I love both Penny & Gabe's characters.
Both of our main characters had a difficult childhood; even though Penny comes from a privileged family and background, she had a traumatic experience explaining why she is fond of her animals. Penny such a big heart, and she has so much life to share not only with her creatures but also with Emma, Alez, Nicola. Ash. Chase, and whoever is willing to open his/her heart to receive Penny's love.
'The Wallflower Wager' is an entertaining story, and at the same time, it is filled with these heartfelt and emotional moments. The friendship of the four women and the husband of Emma and Allex is absolutely wonderful. I love how Ash & Chase are looking after Penny in this book, especially with her potential partners. As always, we have a small glimpse of Nicola's potential partner in the ball that Gabe throws in honor of Penny.
This time Tessa Dare has outdone the story because it is thought-provoking and makes you see the class issue and the liberal guilt.
Tessa dare knows how to write beautiful spicy historical romance, and I am looking forward to reading the fourth book of the quartet. Hopefully, it will be publishing soon. Thanks also to Mrs. Dare that has more books to enjoy her writing.
There are trigger warnings for child abuse and physical abuse. ( )

Fun, but the mix of period language and Americanisms is surprisingly annoying. It’s also a struggle to accept the modern female friendships that persist past marriage and even include husbands mixed in with the stuff about dowries and virginity and maiden aunts. Somehow the heroine being an early ethical vegetarian is much easier to accept - maybe because it’s shown as something unusual in the world of the book.

The friends and their 2 husbands (I assume because this is apparently book 3 of a quartet and they were the couples in the first 2) are incredibly annoying and only bearable in the scenes where the two husbands are annoying the hero, maybe because this is the only time Dare acknowledges how annoying they are. I can’t imagine reading books starring them. The couple in this book are great though. ( )

4.5 of 5 stars

Listened to audio narrated very well by Mary Jane Wells. I really enjoyed the characterizations and the accents.

Witty and humorous, I found myself smiling often while reading.

Penny the vegetarian, animal rescue maid is given an ultimatum. Get back out in society, get rid of her animals and cultivate suitors or she must return with her brother to live out the rest of her life as a spinster aunt.

Gabriel Duke went from rags to riches and is now known as the Duke of Ruin. He purchased a property next to Lady Penelope knowing it would increase his profits after he sold it, but only if she doesn't ruin her reputation before he sells.

He's determined to help her win but finds himself falling in love with all her quirkiness and charm.
Gabriel is such a dry wit and the narrator read him perfectly. Too many good parts to list them all. It was heartbreaking finding out what drove Penny all these years to become a wallflower but it also seemed a bit disconnected, hitting a reader out of the blue as there was almost no hints that this was coming or that the story would take this sort of turn. So the last part of the book didn't seem to fit well with the first part but I still enjoyed their story.

Tessa Dare is the queen of historical romance. This is the next instalment in the fabulous series ‘girl meets duke’. This one features a now an all time favourite couple of mine, Gabriel and Penny. Penny heart is huge and caring, while Gabriel’s is dashing and brooding. This also features favourites from the other books in the series. It also features a parrot with an interesting vocabulary, that made me laugh. I also cried due some of the events that are mentioned. Tessa Dare knows how to send the reader on a emotional rollercoaster. Cannot wait for the next novel. ( )
