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 Garden...When Marcus shockingly -- and dangerously-swept 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 existed...thank 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 his bride?

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!

Skimmed through the book.
Early setting seemed unbelievable.
Without the long erotic passages it could have been a girl's preteen novel.
