Four young ladies enter London society with one necessary goal: they must use their feminine wit and wiles to find a husband. So they band together, and a daring husband-hunting scheme is born. 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…thank goodness they weren't caught very nearly in the act! 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 unsuitable…as his bride?

3.5: I'm going to explain the best I know how. I've forever preferred Batman to Superman. Superman is good and Noble and perfect and...BORING. Marcus is Superman. While I enjoyed Lillian in this book(as an irreverent brat myself) and even their relationship push and pull, they just aren't my favorit...
This review is for all 5 books in the series, because while I think they're harmless one by one, taken as a whole, they support rape culture. Let me say that there is no outright rape in these books, but they are all steeped in the trope of a beautiful virgin (in this case one in each book) who on...
Her wish was more along the lines of, I hope that Lord Westcliff will meet a woman who will bring him to his knees.Lillian and Marus, the Earls of Westcliff, are a well matched couple. While he is proper and at times cold and reserved, she vivacious and doesn’t let him boss her around. As a girl who...
This was definitely my favorite in the Wallflower. Lilian and Marcus are great match and it was hilarious watching headstrong Lilian bring uptight Marcus to his knees. As usual Lisa Kleypas writes extraordinary with great characterization and vivid storytelling.
Loved this book and this author!! This is the second book in the " Wallflower series" I love reading the books in order just so that I can catch up with the previous characters. But this is a standalone book, so don't feel like you have to read them in order!
