Downgraded from 10 to 7 stars after a reread. (MAY 2017)
Another fantastic romance from Lisa Kleypas! I really love Lisa Kleypas's Wallflower series. I like the idea of these 4 women bonding over a common misery and turning each of their lives into something wonderful as a result. Women can be very powerful when working together rather than against each other, and I like that this theme was evident through the entire series.
I loved reading about Lillian and Westcliff in Secrets of a Summer Night, their squabbling and bickering. But Lillian in this book came across more like a brat, rather than a grown woman. She did what she wanted, whenever she wanted, she did things out of spite, and it's very hard to like someone who behaves the way Lillian did.
Also it is good to see the rest of the Wallflowers and keep up with their stories. I love when an author intertwines stories so seamlessly. So, annoying heroine aside, I devoured this book in a day and I was entertained. Not everyone
can pull this off, but Lisa Kleypas did an amazing job and I can't wait to reread the next book in series (it's my absolute favorite).MoreLess

"It Happened One Autumn",the second book in the "Wallflowers"-series about the cynical and cold-blooded Marcus Lord Westcliff and the headstrong spitfire american heiress Lilliana Bowman.It was clear in the first book that these two clashing personalities would get their own story,together.
And weren`t i just excited for that,Yeah!
Lisa Kleypas captured my heart yet again with this exciting,sensual,funny and romantic Love-Story.The undenyable epic chemistry between Marcus and Lilliana are remarkable,i love and adore every scene with them.They have both of their utterly attentions,passion and the blooming love that proved they could ever find true happiness with each other.
Lilliana are famous for having the talent to curse like a pirate and have a great talent for smelling scents,she are so good that she can actually detect a person’s intrinsic scent.Her love for adventures together with her younger sister Daisy was adorable.She are a independent and a very stubborn heroine who hates Marcus at the start with a passion that she wishes with smugness that one day a woman will be able to bring him to her knees,...but what she doesn`t know is that she is the woman.
Marcus-how i LOVE the man.I remember how i really liked him in "Again the Magic",if it weren`t for him,his sister Aline (heroine in "Again the Magic") would never had the courage to give in to her hero McKenna.I remember his upbringing his father put him through,but in this story i got to see how much he really had suffered in his fathers hands and i cried for him when his sister Livia told Lilliana about his miserable childhood.It is so clear that he is facsinated against his will to the wildness of Lilliana and how he deeply fell fast for her.I love the romantic steamy scenes with them so much,as always Lisa Kleypas are a pro at writing steamy sex-scenes..WOW!
We get to meet all the other wallflowers again and i was yet again happy for Simon and Annabelle,the scene where Simon smells the perfume on Annabelle and drags her away from the party to ravish her all night was so freaking hilarious,haha!
We get to see appearances of Livia and Gideon (they are the second-couple in "Again the Magic") and i was so happy for them,and the merest mention of Aline and McKenna made me so HAPPY!
And least of all...i got to meet the ONE man i so desperately started this series for,the exotic beauty of a sinful Devil,Sebastian St. Vincent..!OH MY GOD what a sexy man!!!And the ending with his and Evies scene was so EPIC!!!Now i have got to read their love-story in..."Devil in Winter".

Guest 5 years agoThe heroine/hero in this book were shallow and selfish. I could not like either one. Another pet peeve, this author seems to throw in everything and sometimes the kitchen sink and it jars the reader right out of the plot. Silly, page filling nonsense thrown in. Not good.
