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.

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.

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?

I was a little wary coming to this romance because of the less than enthusiastic reviews. However in the first book the tensions betwen Lillian and Westcliff intrigued me greatly. Whatever the other reviews I LOVED this book.

Lillian is a typical American Regency character, brash, confident and careless of English customs. New money, their mother is desperate to marry them to a peer..and especially Lord Westcliff, possibly the most eligible bachelor in England. Westcliff on the other hand is controlled, seemingly cold and proper to the English extreme. And you wonder if these two are made for each other?!

The struggle between these two characters is great to read because neither of them want to give in to the other. I particularly enjoyed the scene in the library - you'll know the one I mean when you read this book! As in the first book, parts are very dramatic which simply makes the book much more enjoyable to read and some are heart-rendingly sweet and sigh-worthy. It was also great to visit old characters and meet new ones. St Vincent is an intriguing character and since he is the protagonist in the next book, clearly Kleypas thought so as well.

Conclusion then: A witty, brilliantly written, entertaining, sweet and romantic novel that I already look forward to re-reading. I would seriously advise buying all the Wallflower books, especially this one.
