The second in a series, this book explores the romantic attraction between a British earl and an American socialite. The sparks fly when these two opposites clash.
This is the second installment in an enjoyable late regency/early Victorian romance series. The hero and heroine -- who both played supporting roles in book 1 -- are well-matched, and as always, Kleypas does a good job of balancing humor, chemistry between the leads, and lots of interesting details and insight about mid-19th century British society. A thoroughly entertaining read.
I really enjoyed this romance, probably better than the first in the series, Secrets of a Summer Night. I am suprised that I did enjoy it so much because I found Marcus really high and mighty in Secrets of a Summer Night, and although I imagined that it might be Marcus who was the hero for Kleypas' next book, I didn't imagine I would like it at all due to my already bad impression of him. Reading his small parts Secrets of a Summer Night I also imagined him to be considerably older than the usual age for a romance book hero - like 65, because of his personality and behaviour towards the Wallflowers when he found them playing rounders in their undies.
This is part of a series that I have fully enjoyed. Lisa Kleypas is a wonderful writer that makes it hard to put her books down.
Just finished this one and loved it too. I *think* I liked book 1, (summertime) with Annabelle and Simon a bit better but both were great!
The wallflower series is amazing!
Skimmed through the book.
Early setting seemed unbelievable.
Without the long erotic passages it could have been a girl's preteen novel.
