I loved this book. All the charachters were well written, although both mothers were very harshly drawn. Lisa Kleypas has really made me a fan of historicals, which I used to never read.
This was not my favorite Kleypas book. I enjoyed the characters but at the same time found myself irritated with their behavior. My favorite comment: Marcus says to Lillian..."Queen Victoria herself could not drag a pair of savage brats like you along the path of respectability." Take that you heathen. He obviously wasn't trying to woo her at this point.
This is my favorite of the Wallflowers books. I sometimes find romances that begin with the hero and heroine disliking each other very annoying, but if they're done right they can be great. This is one of the good ones. I love the chemistry between the two characters. Also, Westcliff is AWESOME. If I were going to marry an English lord, he'd be at the top of my list. He's a very strong character, both as a forceful but honorable leader of his family, but also as a sympathetic character, protective of all those he loves (not just the heroine). I highly recommend this. I reread it from time to time when I need something light but satisfying.
Wonderful story of two strong characters who come to discover love after the initial dislike. opposites attract and fireworks ensue!
This book, along wtih "Devil in WInter" in the Wallflower series were my favorites.
Characters are well developed and flawed just enough to be interesting. The premise is interesting, kept me reading, and the side stories were fun too. The crisis to conclude the book was a bit unbelievable, but I went with it since the rest of the book was so fabulous.
When I read that the author envisioned Colin Firth as the hero in "It Happened One Autumn" I had to re-read it. Yep, totally believable. Love the Wallflower and Hathaway series.
