Secrets of a Summer Night (The Wallflowers, Book 1)

The Wallflowers

Four young ladies at the side of the ballroom make a pact to help each other find husbands . . . no matter what it takes

Proud and beautiful Annabelle Peyton could have her pick of suitors—if only she had a dowry. Her family is on the brink of disaster, and the only way Annabelle can save them is to marry a wealthy man. Unfortunately her most persistent admirer is the brash Simon Hunt, a handsome and ambitious entrepreneur who wants her as his mistress.

Annabelle is determined to resist Simon’s wicked propositions, but she can’t deny her attraction to the boldly seductive rogue, any more than he can resist the challenge she presents. As they try to outmaneuver each other, they find themselves surrendering to a love more powerful than they could have ever imagined. But fate may have other plans—and it will take all of Annabelle’s courage to face a peril that could destroy everything she holds dear.

Simon is only barely tolerated in “polite” society because of his friendship with the estimable Lord Westcliff (the hero of the next book in the series) and because the crumbling aristocracy can’t ignore his millions try as they might…

  2. Not Bad…. I nearly didn’t buy this book because the reviews on this site were so lukewarm, but as a fan of Kleypas’s I couldn’t pass it up. I actually read this title in little over a day. It held my interest and didn’t strike me as having been written by someone who was on automatic pilot. I don’t think it is Lisa’s best. (The best was “Suddenly You,” in my humble opinion.) But I very much liked the hero and the heroine. The heroine did not strike me as money-grubbing, just someone who knew what she…

  3. The book that finally got me started on romance novels I’m new to the romance genre, and I hadn’t found any books that really got me into it. I was close to giving up, when I read “Secrets of a Summer Night.”
