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.
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.
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?Read more ›
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.
