Review: Excellent continuation of the Wicked Wallflowers series. I never thought I'd find the Mad Marquess sympathetic but Christi did it again. Gertrude is wonderful -strong yet gentle and caring. Partially blind thanks to Diggory, her father, and counted fairly useless in the Devil's Den, she really stands up for Stephen and works her way into the Marquess's home and eventually his heart.
Series: Wicked Wallflowers #4
Tropes: Enemies to Lovers, Wounded Heroine,
Premise: Gertrude has been the one everyone underestimates, due to her partial blindness - but Lord Edwin, The Mad Marquess demands his son - her young brother Stephen - come to live with him. Stephen is a bit of a pyromaniac and Gertrude has been watching him and watching over him. She follows him to protect him and ends up being the conduit through which Edwin & Stephen learn what love is.
The Good: Love it when the underestimated heroines can bring the big, bad brutes to heel.
The Bad: None
