Lady Wilhelmina Stanhope is ruined and everyone knows it. Back in Town for the first season since her downfall, Willa plans to remain firmly on the shelf, assuming only fortune hunters will want her now. Instead she focuses on her unique tea blends, secretly supporting a coffee house which employs poor women and children. If her clandestine involvement in trade is discovered, she'll be ruined. Again.
No one is more shocked by Willa's lack of quality suitors than the newly minted Duke of Hartwell. Having just returned from India, the dark duke is instantly attracted to the mysterious wallflower. His pursuit is hampered by the ruthless Earl of Bellingham, who once jilted Will and is now determined to reclaim her.
Caught between the clash of two powerful men, a furious Willa refuses to concede her independence to save her reputation. But will she compromise her heart?

A good, but very simple book.
Did I enjoy the book? Sure. Would I recommend it? Meh. The whole book was about some thwarted guy crazily pursuing the h and H stepping in to "save" her. It was not that exciting. The author did not do a good job explaining or detailing why the h and H came to love each other. No examining of feelings. And her chapters tended to jump from one situation to the next with no transition or flow. I had to re-read a few parts to understand them. A bit disappointing all in all. I still don't know why they liked each other. '\(--)/'
