Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Though this historical romance kicks off on a corny note—with the heroine, who has a supersensitive sense of smell, buying a seemingly magical perfume—the story quickly evolves into the kind of engrossing, dynamic romance that readers have come to expect from Kleypas. The setup is familiar: strong-willed American heiress Lillian Bowman gets under the skin of straitlaced earl Marcus Westcliff, and soon finds herself sharing the sheets with him. But what distinguishes this book from a multitude of similar stories are Kleypas's characters. One can imagine the mouthy Lillian as a regular on Sex and the City and, with his contemporary sensibilities and hunky good looks, Marcus could easily win the heart of a modern woman. Indeed, while the protagonists are both hardheaded in a typical way and their path toward love is peppered with few surprises, it's no chore to sit back and be amused by their antics and engrossed in their struggles. Even if this romance isn't as fresh as the first book in Kleypas's Wallflowers series, Secrets of a Summer Night, the charismatic characters—including Lillian's pert sister and chatty, mischievous friends—ensure that it's never boring.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The second installment in the series of five (so far) did not disappoint. It was as enjoyable as the previous. I love the way this author spins the story to include multiple relationships and stories which keep previous/future characters alive. I also suggest checking out the associated Hataway series (5 books) starting with Mine Until Midnight. It Happened One Autumn

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.

With so many good reviews, I had high expectations for this book. But meh. Lots of descriptions, lots of interactions that do not include the hero and heroine. The meatless story started taking shape after 60% of the book. When the heroine got drunk was to me, the first fun/funny hero-heroine interaction. I didn't feel any attachment to Lillian or Marcus. I fell more in love with Mr and Mrs Hunt, even though I didn't read their book. Love came so fast and the book ended. 2 stars for love, though it came too late in my opinion.

Except for the kidnapping theme that has been many times developped in other of Kleypas's books, this read was enjoyable. It is always interesting to see the development of other characters than the main couple. Though the heroine might seem a little too spoiled and careless, hence becoming a little detestful, you can't help but like the hero. I think this book was enjoyable mainly because of him.
