It Happened One Autumn | Lisa Kleypas
21 posts | 57 read | 3 to read
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 GardenWhen Marcus shockingly -- and dangerouslyswept 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 existedthank 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 unsuitableas his bride?

Ugh, the moment when you think you have 20 pages left and it‘s a preview for a book you‘ve already read.

That‘s what keeps happening to me while reading the Wallflowers series. This romance was fun and enjoyable. Honestly I‘m really looking forward to the next one more. Evie and St. Vincent! Mostly because I‘ve seen reference to them in other Lisa Kleypas books!

Lillian wasn‘t my favorite. I liked hearing more about Annabelle and Simon 💚

Nessavamusic Evie & St. Vincent are my favorites! Enjoy!! 7mo

This book is set up using sexual assault (the “hero” continuing to kiss her after she says no and tries to push him away several times), culminates in rape (the heroine is explicitly too drunk to consent), and uses abduction and threat of rape as the tool to get the “hero” to realize he loves her. The guy who abducted and threatened to rape her is set up to be the hero of the next book. Sexy? No. And I won‘t be reading any more of these either.

I did enjoy this more than the first of the Wallflowers series though I'm not jumping to go on to book 3 - the villain is quite obviously set up to be the next hero and he did some shit that's hard to stomach.

I do enjoy Kleypas' historical romances but the one thing that always keeps me from fully enjoying is that the heroes can be alphaholes at times. I always get a lingering mental image of Gaston in front of Belle's house with a wedding party and chuckling over "now just need to propose to the bride!"

And on top of my beloved love-hate trope, there's a cross old lady tossed in the mix ❤️. Enjoying this one a lot.

Just starting the second Wallflowers book! I'm a sucker for love-hate tropes and was most interested by Lillian in the first book so I have high hopes.

Reread. Really enjoyed rereading this, I adored the chemistry between Lillian and Marcus, and I had forgotten how it ended with St Vincent, so that was a nice surprise to build to the next book (I LOVE a good villain turned hero romance).

Day 5 of #Riotgrams: Bookish Tattoo. Romance has helped me through so much that it only felt right to make things permanent.

Shoutout to Lisa Kleypas for starting this whole mess.

Slower than the first in the series but still so great :) Loved Lillian's bullheadedness.

I'm enjoying this series - and I adore Kleypas - but I'm so done with the swarthy alpha man and the heroine with ivory or porcelain skin. Is there something inherently more masculine about a tan? I'm also rather over the calloused male hands vs silky/satiny female skin. I get that contrast is interesting but it's significantly less so when so many books use the same set of contrasts. Hrmph. /end rant
