Simon isn’t really tortured like many of Ms. My Lady Original by Elise Clarke.

That is why I loved that Annabelle was such a strong heroine, I think if she was a weaker person and gave in to Simon at the beginning sumer this story would have been vastly different, and not so happily resolved. Annabelle also seemed to have the idea that Simon only wanted her as his mistress, but contrary to what the cover blurb stated, I never really got that feeling from him at all and felt that if she had taken the time to get to know him, he might have surprised her with what he had to offer.

Jight, they strike up an unlikely friendship each kleypsa to help the others out to find a husband by means fair and foul. Why am I so stubborn? Initially, the story had a much lighter feel than the author’s other books I had read to date, with the relationship between the Wallflowers seeming a little like chick-lit not exactly my favorite genre in a historical setting.

Secrets of a Summer Night is definitely one of my all time favorite Lisa Kleypas novels. Simon was sexy, sweet, kldypas to the point of rude at times, possessive, and confident. I know Annabelle had her mind set on marrying a peer to kleyypas out of a horrible financial predicament, and Simon son of a working class butcher was anything but.

Secrets of a Summer Night Wallflowers, 1 4. They need to relax these ideas about bloodlines and social klegpas to survive into the next century. Number 1 in series. Hello Stranger Lisa Kleypas. Other books in this series. He is a self made man, a son of a butcher who has made his fortune in financial speculation and then on the blossoming trade of the railway.


Annabelle also was prepared to do literally anything it took to win a marriage proposal from a titled gentleman even if he was a poor match for her. But you and your cackling group of friends, were a challenge for me to love.

Secrets Of A Summer Night : Number 1 in series

I got that in spades with Simon. Plan on reading more by the author: James that just gets me. This is the last season for her to find a husband before she is considered a spinster and no one will want her. I’ve been having a few major problems with my house remodel, and this book – always my favorite of the Wallflower series, saved my sanity!

The banter between the 4 wallflowers was witty and true to life. It saddens me to say that this book is merely average, but that is just what it is. Am I questioning my fierce love of the Hathaway clan?

Secrets of a Summer Night (Wallflowers, book 1) by Lisa Kleypas

Apr 21, Princess under cover rated it really liked it. It was everything I love about LK’s books. Read this book to find out! A determined hero who wants her View all 23 comments. Hopefully, now that the groundwork for the Wallflowers has been laid, there will be earlier and more prominent focus on the romance in the remaining books of the series. Dabney Grinnan August 31, at 9: It was such a good buy!

View all 3 comments. This was a sweet, romantic read and I loved it! I can understand culture shock, but she was married to Simon, and her life had changed permanently. But the thing that melted my heart was that Simon thought she was sleeping with a man for money and didn’t care that she wasn’t a virgin he still wanted to marry her and take care of her.

I didn’t really see her setting her mind on the fact that she was now a middle class businessman’s wife to the degree that I hoped for. May 20, Daniella rated it it was ok. This is one of my favourite series, and Mr Simon Hunt is one of my favourite heroes. Another character I really loved in this book was Annabelle Peyton herself as she is clearly a strong and independent woman who does not let anyone get in the way of her goal of obtaining a husband.

I’ll be interested to see how her character develops as the series goes on, as her book is the fourth one. Her relationship with Hunt was a hate to love kind of story where over time the two get to know each other and fall in love, rather than love at first sight and it worked for me.

Everything I’ve ever wanted in a romance book is here! A little more pragmatism from the heroine’s part and a little less cynicism from the hero’s and this book would have ended by what, page 50?

En resumen, el primero de los libros me deja muy buen sabor de boca y con ganas de seguir conociendo el destino de las fabulosas floreros. I fell madly in love with all the Hathaways and when I finished that series I went to goodreads to find more books by LK to read.
