I borrowed Lord Worthing’s Wallflower from Kindle Unlimited back in July 2020. I thought I should read it and clear it out as I always have at least 10 books borrowed at once. So I spent most of my day finishing the book. I probably should have done a little more work, but I felt the need to read more. ORD is something I suffer from- Obsessive Reading Disorder, yet again.
Jacob Wilding, Baron Worthing has a mission. His father’s health is declining and the one thing his father wants to see is his son settled. So Jacob ventures into the marriage mart. After making a short list and checking off some names, he decides on Lady Eleanor Chalcroft.
Juliette Aston is Lady Eleanor’s best friend. Yet, while Eleanor is so popular, Juliette is a wallflower. Lady Eleanor and she come up with the sobriquet Lady Invisible as the men never seem to see Juliette. It’s her third season and her last if her father has anything to say about it.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In Lord Worthing’s Wallflower, Juliette’s father does not like London. She’s in her third season with no prospects so he gives her an ultimatum- find a husband or return home with him to serve as his housekeeper. Jacob meets Juliette at a ball when she and Lady Eleanor are talking. Juliette quotes Shakespeare and that seems to pique Jacob’s interest.
While Jacob is slowly falling in love with Juliette, he continues to court Lady Eleanor as his father wants. What will happen? Read the book! It’s on Kindle Unlimited.
This was a very entertaining read. While it’s the first in a series, I’m not sure how quickly I’ll jump to read the next. Although I do want to read it as it’s Lady Eleanor’s story and hopefully I’ll see Juliette and Jacob some more. I fell in love with these characters, for sure.

And in case you hadn’t figured it out, my plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. We’ll see how I do this year.
