This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
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?
I had my doubts with this book, the reason for this is quite simple, I read the first book in the series and fell in love with Annabelle and I was about certain that this book couldn’t possibly be as good as the first one, but thankfully, I was wrong, in a way this book is better than the first.
Lillian Bowman is such an enchanting person and it was an absolute thrill to read about her road to success. Kleypas is amazing when it comes to creating a world that is easily visible and I’m a huge fan of her hidden humor made me chuckle quiet often.
What really captures my attention is her attention to detail. It’s so lively and it seem so real. It’s almost as if you’re one of the guests at Stony Cross.
Sublime writing! Even though the overall plot is pretty, much the same as in the first book it’s still very different. I’d be surprised if not anyone whom likes romance novels liked this, because it truly is a gift to the genre. I’d recommend this in a heartbeat it truly deserves more attention than it’s gotten already. Even though the focus is upon Lillian, we still get a slight insight in how Annabelle is doing and it’s epic, so I’m going to start the next book right away!
