In 1843, American heiress Lillian Bowman, a card carrying member of the Wallflowers, sets her sights on marrying the ¿Ice Prince¿ Marcus. He rejects her advances as he sees her and her three Wallflower compatriots as uncouth barbarians, who think nothing about parading in front of him in their undergarments though he admits only to himself the colonist looked quite alluring.............. With his aloof put downs, Lillian concludes that her beloved is a snob who needs to be yanked down a peg or two and she, the Yank, will do so. Marcus, in turn thinks her insolence is a case of poor breeding. With all that going on it is no wonder that Lillian and Marcus are falling in love with one another, but first must put aside the boxing gloves for a moment an act neither wants to do first for fear of a low blow retaliation................ As she did with the first Wallflowers¿ historical romance (see SECRETS OF A SUMMER NIGHT), Lisa Kleypas provides her audience with a delightful Victorian tale starring two individuals in this case who detest one another at first sight. The theme is opposites might attract, but also expel as neither wants to desire the other in a classic case of reaction formation because deep inside their hearts they know they have met their soulmate, who is not the image of what they thought they wanted. The lead couple keeps the fun story line brisk as enemy combatants in love.......... Harriet Klausner

If you are looking for a steamy, funny, and in-depth romance novel, then this is the one for you! It does lag a little at the beginning, but soon picks up, and does not slow down. The dialogue was funny, especially Lillian's colorful language. This is a perfect book for rainy days because you will not be able to put it down, or get much done. Truly enjoyed it. Since I am reading the series, I cannot say this is my favorite of the four, but so far I prefer it to the first one - Secrets of a Summer Night.

I absolutely loved seeing this other side of Marcus, Lord Westcliff, especially since he seemed really stuffy in Secrets of a Summer Night until the end of the story. What I liked most is just how astonished Marcus felt about his whole relationship with Lillian. She's the worst match for him possible - American, loud, and troublesome, yet he falls completely in love with her. He becomes utterly confused as to why he loves her and despite that, keeps finding himself in situations that end up working out quite well for him. I love how the story shows that once you fall in love, you can't fight it. Highly recommended for any romance novel fan.

I loved this book. I was hooked after the very first page. This book was great. It had just the right amount of romance. I wasn't expecting how funny Lillian was. There were parts that I couldn't help but laugh out loud. I was totally entertained. I couldn't put this book down. I must have read it in 2 days. A must read! You will not regret it.

Yeah, I've been waiting for this book for a year and a half. Great book. Marcus was a perfect alpha hero. He has this macho air about himself, yet he knows when he's been bitten by the 'Love Bug'. He's really mature and that's what I like about Lisa Kleypas' novels. Lillian is an American - hardheaded, outspoken, and unpolished. But she completely relieves this burden of Marcus and makes him act younger. It's wonderful to read a love story like this.

If you are going to read this series about four women who want to find love and marriage in England, it is best to start with the first book. Unfortunately, I started with No.3 and I had to reread it to catch up with no. 1 and 2. Lisa Kleypas does well with descriptions of the early 1800's when the British aristocracy was losing their properties due to debts, the railroads were being built, young men in business and merchant enterprises were being sought after as husbands and women were being given more rights. The dialogue is very witty between the young men and women.
