Description from

Responsible, practical Miss Hermione Rogers, has been crafting stories as the notorious Mr. Michael Michaelmas and selling them for a meager wage to support her siblings. The only real way to ensure her family’s ruinous debts are paid, however, is to marry. Tall, thin, and plain, she has no expectation of success. In London for her first Season she seizes the chance to write the tale of a brooding duke. In her research, she finds Sebastian Fitzhugh, the 5th Duke of Mallen, who unfortunately is perfectly affable, charming, and so nicely… configured… he takes her breath away. He lacks all the character traits she needs for her story, but alas, any duke will have to do. Sebastian Fitzhugh, the 5th Duke of Mallen has been deceived so many times during the high-stakes game of courtship, he’s lost faith in society women. Yet, after a chance encounter with Hermione, he finds himself intrigued. Not a woman he’d normally consider beautiful, the young lady’s practical bent, her forthright nature and her tendency to turn up in the oddest places has his interests… roused. He’d like to trust her, he’d like to do a whole lot more with her too, but should he?


Why did I feel absolutely compelled to read this book when I’ve never before read this author, or even heard of her? I don’t know why!!! But it was something almost supernatural that led me, and I am so happy that I followed this compulsion and purchased this novel. Within these pages there is a depth of emotion I seldom find and it is all wrapped up in superbly nuanced characters. Hermione and Sebastian are meant for each other and they feel it right from their first meeting but they are not astute enough to realize that this is true love. No, Hermione must envision the relationship as research for her novels and Sebastian knows there is a connection but he just can’t figure out why he finds ways to keep meeting Hermione. And then of course there are tremendous roadblocks to their Happy-Ever-After. You will have some smiles and some tears but you will not put this book down until you have turned the last page. Way to go Christi Caldwell!

This is a standalone novel with characters from previous books in the series.

    Hi, Dot! I’m so glad you were drawn to Christi Caldwell’s novel. She has an uncanny way of expressing a depth of emotion that is quite rare in an author. I hope you will read more of her novels. She’s very gifted.


  3. La Deetda,
    I hope you don’t mind me posting a response to your review…but I wanted to say I came across your beautiful review on “Once a Wallflower, At Last His Love” and I am so incredibly touched and honored by the words you’ve written about Hermione and Sebastian’s story. As an author, all my stories are special to me. However, as the mother to a child with special needs, this story contained the hopes and fears I carry for my son and his two sisters, and was a poignant one for many reasons…and so I just wanted to say thank you for finding “Once a Wallflower, At Last His Love” and sharing it as you have.

    Tremendous hugs,
    Christi Caldwell
