Book Description

Second book in New York Times bestselling Lisa Kleypas's historical Wallflowers series

Product Description

It happened at the ball...Where beautiful but bold Lillian Bowman quickly learned that her independent American ways weren't entirely "the thing." And the most disapproving of all was insufferable, snobbish, and impossible Marcus, Lord Westcliff, London's most eligible aristocrat. It happened in the garden...When Marcus shockingly - and dangerously - swept her into his arms. Lillian was overcome with a consuming passion for a man she didn't even like. Time stood still; it was as if no one else existed. It happened one autumn...Marcus was a man in charge of his own emotions, a bedrock of stability. But with Lillian, every touch was exquisite torture, every kiss an enticement for more. Yet how could he consider taking a woman so blatantly his bride?

4.0 out of 5 stars Book Two Of The Wallflower Series! 25 Oct 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Kleypas has created another entertaining read for her long time fan's and new readers alike. Marcus and Lillian are two fun characters that prove that opposites can and do attract. But watch out for the sparks!!!
Lillian and her sister Daisy are in England with their parents looking to attract some poor unsuspecting member of the peerage into a happy union. With the help of their new friends and fellow members of the Wallflowers they have set out to find a happy ending for Lillian. Lillian is not your average miss and she truly has no like for Lord Westcliff or his snooty ideas. So imagine her surprise when his kisses turn her inside out and upside down. How can she find herself attracted to...heaven help us a peer of the realm!!! Fear not she will have her happy ending but not before the sparks fly.
Marcus took an instant dislike to the loud American chit and when he finds himself not only teaching her how to hit a ball but kissing her sensless the world in which he knows no longer makes sense. How is this totally different woman the one that speaks to his heart? She is totally unsuitable to be his lady...or is she?
Lillian and Marcus were fun and entertaining characters. There were plenty of laugh out loud moments and if the reader can get past the first twenty or so pages (this read does start off a bit slow) they will be in for a treat with this read. I look forward to the next "Wallflower" book and can't wait to see what happens next this this small group of friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars AN ENJOYABLE READ 18 Oct 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I Love Lisa Kleypas-she writes about spirited heroines who often challenge the accepted roles of women of their time by being able to think for themselves and refusing to become a doormat, and the beautiful but bold Lillian Bowman is no exception. A rich American with no pedigree, but a socially ambitious mother, she finds London society less than accepting, and makes few friends other than the 'Wallflowers', a group of young women largely ignored by the ton. Invited to a houseparty on sufferance because of her father's business connections, she is infuriated and strangely attracted to her host, Marcus, Lord Westcliff, one of London's most eligable batchelors. Marcus makes no secret of his disapproval of her outspoken ways, but neither does he resist the temptation to keep kissing her. Gradually, through a series of encounters, their hostility changes to grudging respect.There are some obstacles to be crossed, however, before they can find true happiness, including the objections of Marcus' mother and another suitor for Lillian who has his eyes on her fortune.
This is the second in the series about the Wallflowers-the first featured Annabelle, now happily married to Simon Hunt, and I look forward to reading the next two. I definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, A Book That Left Me Satisfied 1 Jun 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I know it has been said before about many other authors...but Lisa Kleypas has done it again! I couldn't put it down. I didn't want to put it down. If anyone had tried to make me I would have had to deck them!

Wow, I am completely blown away and one hundred percent impressed with the latest in her wallflowers series. How could we not love Lillian Bowman, the daring, fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants American heiress? Her intro in Annabelle's story, Secrets of a Summer Night (book # 1), more than assured us that we would be getting an enthralling heroine in which to laugh along with, cheer on and delight in. Her first meeting with Marcus, Lord Westcliff, was priceless in the first installment (Remember the game of rounders played in their knickers?) and Kleypas starts this book with a bang as well, with another game of rounders no less. Yes, Marcus is more than an observer this time, but read for yourself to see how that turns out! It's pulse-pounding! It's steamy! It's - you get the idea.

Lillian is an original, completely individual young woman, seeking, as all young ladies of good standing did at the time, a suitable husband with which to settle down. She knows that her vulgar American tendancies will do her no favors in that arena so she is depending on her massive fortune to attract the right sort of man - a titled one of course. The book takes place almost entirely on Marcus's country estate, where, the confused lord is not quite sure why he's invited the irritating miss. Despite the possibility of business with her father, he'd much rather not have anything to do with her. Fortunately for him, Lillian is of the same mindset. Is it possible, though, that something could possibly change Marcus's mind?

5.0 out of 5 stars The second Wallflower 27 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second book in the Wallflower series, following Secrets of a Summer Night, with Annabelle and Simon Hunt. This story follows the romance between Lillian and... Westcliff! This must be one of Kleypas' most perfect couples, and their story is full of laughter, passion and drama.

Much to Marcus' annoyance, he finds he can't stop thinking about the impetuous and bold but beautiful Lillian. Lillian realises she needs to learn the English ways and to lose her American-ness if she is ever going to find a husband, but does this mean she has to compromise herself, and can she ever find someone accepting of her just being herself? Together they find that they are a flammable combination and the fun begins.

We also meet Lord St Vincent in this story for the first time who will return in later stories (not to give anything away).

An enjoyable easy read, that you will devour in one sitting and still be left wanting more.
