    4. Was I in some kind of super warp drive ? This started and concluded before I knew it. I never got to know any of the side characters, who had potential. The build up for the romance was nonexistent. It just happened, instant love. Okay, yes there was an issue that was supposed to keep them apart but it was paved over with the all too fast resolution.A poor American girl returns to the home of her mother, England, to find a rich husband so she can get her dowery and return to America to save her [...]

    5. actual rating 2.5 starsARC provided by the author through NetgalleyThis is a difficult book to rate. I have trouble discerning if the problem was actually with the book or with my frustrated expectations.I LOVED the prequel to this series, I gave it 5/5 stars. If you follow my reviews you know how rare such a thing is. So I went into The Earl's Defiant Wallflower expecting more light-hearted romance, with a lot of humour in the mix.I instantly disliked the main characters. Why? I don't really kn [...]

    6. lástima de traducción que hace que la historia pierda en cada página. A eso se añade precipitación en la historia, información incompleta, etc. hace que no se disfrute. Eso sí, la abuela de ella es un buen secundario. Qué ganas de hacer que se trague sus palabras.

    7. His lips brushed hers. Light. Feathery. Still giving her a chance to say no, to turn away.She would not. She would have this moment, every bit of this moment, because it would have to carry her through the rest of her life. This was Oliver. In her heart, he was hers. If only for this moment.5 fantastic stars!I finished this book with a satisfied sigh and a smile. Erica Ridley can write a story! I was captured within the first few pages and before I knew it, the book had ended. I just wish it was [...]

    8. The Earl’s Defiant Wallflower(Duke’s of War Book #1) by Erica RidleyThis is the first in a new series for Erica Ridley.

    10. HAPPY RELEASE DAY!!!I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, The Viscount's Christmas Temptation.

He is incredibly worried about the people that depend upon him. He's really not ready to marry, but he has to find a bride with plenty of money. He's also a rescuer.

    14. A delightfully lovely historical romance, The Earl's Defiant Wallflower was a truly enjoyable read. It was romantic, witty, and I really liked it.Grace was a great heroine. Determined to find a way to help her mother, she went to England to find herself a husband. Though her plan seemed cold, it was immediately obvious that she wasn't the coldly calculating type. She loved fiercely and fought for what she wanted. I thought she was lovely.Oliver was just as likable. Very sweet and determined to s [...]

    15. The best thing I've read since Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series. Grace is an American looking for a rich, titled husband. She needs the money to bring her sick mother home to England. She is attracted to Oliver, the Earl of Carlisle. The only problem is his finances are in complete disarray and he is looking for a rich heiress to pull him out of bankruptcy.This is such a sweet, romantic story. Grace and Oliver are just adorable. There is a fairy tale quality about how they meet and fall in love. [...]

    16. I am so glad I decided to try this author again. This is book 1 from Dukes of War Series. I had previously read her 0.5 short novella first, The Viscount's Christmas Temptation and it was too Vanilla for me, even though it had tons of potential.The Earl's Defiant Wallflower was very good. I loved the storyline, humor and the descriptive passion. It truly redeemed my view. I look forward to the next book in the series.

    17. What a beautiful story about Grace and Oliver, two people trying to make it in historical England without any family support at all. Oliver's father, spent all his money on drunken liaisons with his mistress. Grace's selfish grandparents refuse to help their own daughter. So Grace is desperately trying to find a rich husband so she can get her mother the necessary medical help. Lots of surprises, twists and turns in this one!

    18. En este libro, la ambientación brilla por su ausencia. Solo la fecha de inicio, la descripción de algún vestido, la guerra de Napoleón a la que se hace referencia de pasada y el título de Oliver indican que estamos en la Regencia. Por lo demásHay expresiones y pensamientos muy actuales. Sin embargo, me he entretenido.

    19. GreatAnother wonderful story from Erica's. This gas van American who comes to England to get help from her grandparents. They will only help if she marries well. He just became a Count since his father died while he was a war, but left him penny less. Can love and honor concur all.

    21. The reason why I didn't abandon this earlier is that I forgot I was even reading it.I liked this first one in this series, but I'm no slave to continuity because I'm abandoning the second. It's boring, I guess? I can't remember. At 33%, I give up.

    22. The Earl’s Defiant Wallflower is a short historical romance, which is a series opener. The series is to focus on three young men who went away to war, and perhaps the young man that did not.In the first book, Lord Oliver York has returned to society. He’s determined to encourage his mute friend, Captain Xaiver Grey, back into the land of the living, even if his return to the ballrooms of the ton gives the impression he’s in want of a wife. He’s not. He’d prefer never to get married, at [...]

    23. Grace Halton came from America, more precisely from Pennsylvania, looking for a rich husband. Not that she wanted his money. But if he had enough money, would not mind if she took away money from her dowry for a simple matter: her mother was extremely ill in America, barely able to get out of bed, and this money would help to have sufficient resources to her medical treatment.But Grace, even though a certain beauty, needed to overcome some barriers. First her grandmother; an uncompromising woman [...]

Then Erica Ridley's The Earl's Defiant Wallflower is perfect for you. In book one of her Dukes of War Series, Ms. Ridley lays the groundwork for her new series and I believe she does a very good job.Miss Grace Halton has a duty to perform. In order to obtain her dowry she must marry. Hopefully her husband will th [...]

    25. Right off the bat, I was thinking the title should have been The Earl's Bitchy Wallflower. Since Santa paid full price for this book, I forced myself to read as much of it as I could. I made it to page 110 of 194, to the scene of the heroine describing to the hero how her father died years ago. The hero's reaction was over the top corny. This might be the first time I actually thought 'gross' to this first kissing scene Actually most of the book was like watching extremely bad acting in a soap o [...]

    26. I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review through Wicked Reads.I had mixed feelings about this book. It was a charming, easy to read HEA type of book, but it ended up feeling rushed. It started off nicely with an interesting and developed stroline with Grace and Oliver both struggling with their own issues. Their stories were detailed and intricate, but somewhere at the midpoint, it seemed like it was suddenly time to wrap things up and the depth completely disappeared and was r [...]

    27. I wish this book was longer :( It was lively and fun and easy to read so once I started, I didn't put it down and then WHAM, it was done :( The entire book was FULL of witty and hilarious humor! I think it has a lot to do with the 'times', but when I read a historical romance novel, I find myself VERY entertained. The speech is just so 'highfalutin' for lack of a better term that it just makes it laughable! Every scene was FULL of good, sassy, witty banter! SO the story goes like this . Oliver c [...]

    28. Grace Halton has come to England from her home in America to beg her grandparents to help her sick mother. Instead she finds her wealthy grandparents intent on getting her married off to a member of the ton and disbelieving of her mother's illness. Unfortunately, her grandparents are self-made wealthy people which coupled with her American accent have made Grace a figure of fun with the ton. In fact, they call her Miss Macaroni and make crude suggestions about what she might be good for. Grace i [...]

    29. 1.5 stars. This is a novella, not a novel. The info says 250 page ebook, but mine was 120 pages maybe. And 120 pages was not nearly enough to tell this story. All you get is people moving from point a to point b with no real character development except what is explicitly told in the first five pages. The two lovebirds meet maybe twice before they're in love with each other. And the book makes a point of stating that Grace's grandparents made their money profiting on the Napoleonic Wars when Oli [...]

    30. Oliver York returns from the wars on the continent to find his father dead, his fortune gone, and his ancestral estate in disrepair. Now an earl, he needs LOTS of money to save his home.
