      4.5 I love you Dammit Stars***********Spoilers**********“You…you mustn’t stare at me like that.” Soft as the murmur was, he caught it. “With you here, nothing else is worth looking at.” -Annabelle and SimonI love Lisa Kleypas! Now a little while back I bought the whole Hathaways series for 4.00 and it was my first taste of Lisa Kleypas. I fell madly in love with all the Hathaways and when I finished that series I went to to find more books by LK to read. That was when I found out th [...]

      What a wonderful story!This was another gem from one of my favorite authors. As always, Lisa Kleypas never ever fails me. Secrets of A Summer Night had me hooked from the very start, enraptured me in a way that I never imagined, and I found myself having a hard time putting it down.I loved Simon Hunt! He’s strong, smart, swoon-worthy, and sweet. Yet he could be a bad boy at times. No matter how rich he is, the peers have never accepted him as one of themselves. For the fact that he was born a [...]

      Gosh, what a standout start to the Wallflowers series. Simon is a definite hero in pursuit, one of my favorite types. He saw Annabelle and he had to have her. He wasn't always upstanding in the things he said or did, or his motivations. But it didn't help that Annabelle's inbred snobbery caused her to look down at him. Simon is a self-made man. He is very wealthy and his wealth has opened doors for him socially (just barely). The fact that he is a business associate (and friend of Lord Westcliff [...]

      First of all, a big fat boot in the rear (to me) for letting this gem languish in the TBR for so long! Why am I so stubborn? So I have drifted away from historicals, but c'mon, this is Kleypas--I should've known better! I've loved so many of her books, and her heroes are some of my all time favorite romance heroes (Zachary Bronson, Jack Devlin, Derek Craven)--now I can add one more to the list--the deliciously sexy Simon Hunt (be still my heart)! I loved this guy! Talk about swoon-worthy! I'm te [...]

      4 stars! “Having regrets is the only sign that you’ve done anything interesting with your life.”The first book in the Wallflower series, Secrets of a Summer Night is about Annabelle, a beautiful woman searching for a husband, but her family’s financial troubles prevent this. No man wants to marry a woman with no dowry, but Annabelle must marry soon to prevent her family from being put out on the streets.Annabelle’s only luck seems to be with Simon Hunt, a man not of the nobility, but o [...]

      Finally, FINALLY, a Lisa Kleypas book that I actually like! I'm not broken after all!I was beginning to think that perhaps I was the only person on earth to hate Lisa Kleypas. I 2-starred both Suddenly You and Somewhere I'll Find You, and I was really ready to just throw in the towel. However, I already owned Secrets of a Summer Night so I figured I would try one more time. #bathtubbookAnd I'm soooo happy that I gave this one a try. This was a great story with a complex H and h, a great set of s [...]

      Finally getting around this vintage Kleypas. I found it much better written and engaging than her latest historical offerings, which I recently read, though I must also admit I enjoyed Secrets of a Summer Night more as a fun series set-up than for the romance itself.Long story short, Annabelle Payton is a genteel but destitute beauty who needs to marry for money, quickly. Simon Hunt wants her, he's handsome and now filthy rich, and well-connected into the Ton, but remains a cleaned-up butcher's [...]

      This is my kind of leisure reading, a good historical romance, well written with charming characters and a lot of witty dialogue. I very much enjoyed the romance between the two main characters and loved the friendship between the four Wallflowers. The story was really entertaining and full of drama. Loved it:)I am looking forward now to the rest of the series!

      Written April 5, 20154 Stars - Charming, steamy and much chuckling fun. These determined 'Wallflowers' are women to admireYet another amusing 'Wallflowers' HR as audiobook (11 hrs) narrated by always excellent Rosalyn Landor. (You get this one for just $7 incl. the e-book / kindle at right now.)

      5+ stars – Historical RomanceThis is a great start to a fun, dazzlingly romantic series about four young ladies with very different personalities and backgrounds entering society who form a deep bond of friendship that grounds them as they traverse the rocky course of relationships and husband hunting in stuffy Victorian era England.Beautiful Annabelle Peyton is determined to find a wealthy suitor with a high position in society to wed in order to save her family from financial ruin. Simon Hun [...]

      I've put off reading this series for so long and I have no idea why! I read the Hathaway books and thought nothing in the HR world could compare. Was I being a tad too judgmental? Maybe. Am I questioning my fierce love of the Hathaway clan? Hell no! Cam's a delicious bit of man and remains to this day one of my favorite book boyfriends.That being said, I'm adding Simon Hunt to that list. Tall, dark, brooding and "commanding" in certain areas of his life *ahem*. Oh hell yes! Annabelle was a fanta [...]

      Why is it every time that I read a book by Lisa Kleypas, I am always so into the characters and the situations that surrounds them? Well, the answer to that is that Lisa Kleypas is clearly a brilliant romance writer and reading many of her books has been an awesome experience that I have enjoyed doing over and over again! This time, I have read the first book in Lisa Kleypas’ “Wallflower” series called “Secrets of a Summer Night” and it is surely full of drama, thrills and hot romance [...]

      I liked this one, a lot. Simon, a self-made man. Born the son of a butcher, he has worked hard to make his money and his place in society. OK, he will never be a nobleman but, honestly, who would want to be. But status matters to some and it matters to Annabelle. She needs to marry and marry well. Her family's finances are dwindling fast.He did not strike her as a trustworthy man in fact, for all his elegant clothes and polished appearance, he didn't seem quite civilised.He was the kind of man [...]

      My Review::This was a very easy, enjoyable read and though it seemed to drag in the beginning, I did learn things about class distinction that I had not been aware of.I am adding Simon Hunt to my rapidly growing list of favorite heroes, but I can't tell you how many times I wanted to kick Annabelle to the curb. Hmmmdid they have curbs back then? Well, if the did she would have found herself sitting on one had I had my way.I enjoyed the devious banter between the wallflowers, Annabelle, Lillian, [...]

      Miss Annabelle Payton, Miss Lillian Bowman, Miss Evangeline Jenner and Miss Daisy Bowman are regular sights at the peripheral of a ballroom. With each young lady having oddities and foibles that make them untenable to the bachelors of the ton. However, they strike up an unlikely friendship each vowing to help the others out to find a husband by means fair and foul. With the beautiful and spirited Annabelle being the firstMiss Annabelle Payton’s family are on the knife edge of poverty, to stop [...]

      Historical romances are like my "Chicken Soup for the Soul." They just make me feel better. When my daughter was younger and would get sick and stay home from school, we would watch Pride and Prejudice - in our P.J.'s, with chocolate. And, I'm not talking about the Keira Knightly version - I mean the six-hour A&E Colin Firth one. It took all day, but it was comforting.Mr. Darcy makes everything betterThis book is like that. No matter what's going on, it made me smile. The characters are ador [...]

      Awesome narrator enhanced the story.I love this series and was excited to try out the audio version. The narrator does a fabulous job and I never struggled to decipher which character was talking. This is the first book in the series and my second favourite but only by a smidge. I love the rough around the edges, Simon Hunt. I don't particularly enjoy seeing the class distinction and resulting snobbery. I will definitely be listening to the rest of the series in the future.

      ★★★★★ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Good Gravy Beansis book is good. 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! I popped this book in my ears b/c it was loaded on my iPod and it has helped me get through a rough couple of days. LOVE Simon & Annabelle's story. Love how Simon is attracted to Annabelle at the beginning, and pursues herbut also comes to truly love her. Love how Annabe [...]

      Annabelle Peyton no pasa por su mejor momento, lleva unas cuantas temporadas sin conseguir un compromiso matrimonial que la saque de las dificultades económicas por las que pasa, a pesar de ser de buena familia su falta de dote la convierte en una florero, es decir, el tipo de mujer que pasa “desapercibida” en los bailes y demás eventos. Es así como conocerá a tres chicas en su misma situación: Evie, Lillian y Daisy, las cuatro jóvenes deciden convertirse así en las “floreros” con [...]

      Reviewed for THC Reviews"4.5 stars" After reading numerous rave reviews, I have been quite anxious to start Lisa Kleypas' Wallflowers series. However, when I first began Secrets of a Summer Night, I found myself wondering if I was going to like it as much as some of Ms. Kleypas' other works. 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 [...]

      What a fabulous read! It's an incredibly romantic book :)Here you have sexy Simon Hunt who has been pursuing a very poor Annabelle for years but in a very roundabout kind of way. He's like a little boy yanking on a girl's ponytail claiming to want to bug her but really just dying to be near her. He's so mean to her at the beginning, mocking her that she's a wallflower during the parties and she should be grateful that at least he comes to ask her to dance--but she refuses and basically tells him [...]

      ¿Por qué, señor, por qué? ¿Por qué he tardado tanto en leer esta joyita? Creo que mentalmente estaba esperando que lo reeditaran para tenerlo en papel, así que ¡chica lista yo! :D Simon Hunt ya está en el grupito de protas masculinos de Lisa Kleypas que tienen mi corazón. Demasié <3

      4.5 starsAnother winner from Lisa Kleypas! Secrets of a Summer Night is the first book in this series and on the face of it, the plot is simple and straightforward and yet there are meaningful layers and sub-plots to this HR. The Wallflower series is about romance, about making an advantageous marriage in a society that only cares about pedigree/aristocratic titles and wealth. But there is a new class of people emergingThe newly rich, usually Americans, they are on the fringe of influential Engl [...]

      4.5 This series is fantastic!!!I’ve been sick for the past few days and what I really wanted were some good romance books to comfort me. Some people eat chicken soup, I curl up with Lisa Kleypas, who I think is one of the best historical romance writers.If you haven’t read this series, you really need to. The series is about 4 ladies and they are consider Wallflowers, which basically means they aren’t the traditional English single ladies and because they are so very untraditional, they ar [...]

      Love this. I can't believe I waited so long to read this. My first Kleypas novel. I have most of the Wallflowers & all of the Hathaways but I borrowed this from Overdrive. I will definitely buy this to reread.The heroine, Annabelle grew on me. I loved the Wallflowers. I'm on their side. I want them all to have their own happiness. Simon grew on me. He was so antagonistic, but such magnatism. I just knew that he was attracted to Annabelle. Was it more?I loved "watching" them together. They ha [...]

      An impoverished heroine who does not know what she wants. A determined hero who wants her as a mistress. A psychotic son-of-a-bitch who lusts after the heroine and is sleeping with the heroine's mother.(WTF!!!!) Debates about how men were superior to women. Drama about belonging to a lower class. And a predictable ending.Yeah, in short, this book was barely okay. There was virtually no character development, man. I did not like the hero, the heroine and most of the characters here (except for Ev [...]
