Her parents had brought her and her sister from America to England, hoping they could find husbands for autujn daughters, and hopefully they would be nobilit. Her parents had brought her and her sister from America to England, hoping they could find husbands for their daughters, and hopefully they would be nobility.
But neither Lillian, nor Daisy are what the nobleman of England are used to, and I loved it. They way Lillian challenged and clashed wills with the serious and imposing Lord Westcliff was awesome!! Marcus, Lord Westcliff is used to being obeyed and in control. I loved the intense animosity between them in the beginning, and how with every heated encounter their feelings for each other became more passionate, more undeniable. I loved the slowburn of their romance, how hard they tried to ignore their chemistry, trying to focus on how much they disliked each other, and how superbly they kkleypas at it.
Lillian was just perfect for Marcus, her playfulness and bluntness just what he needed. I really enjoyed this book, and after that ending with the rakish anti-hero St. Will Hap;ened be the one sutumn who can reach the cold heart of Sebastian?? I love the way Lisa Kleypas writes, how romantic and captivating her books are, and this series is excellent. Highly recommended to all HR fans.

One can scarcely conceive of a more ill-suited pair. Again the Magic Book 1: Secrets of a Summer Night Book 2: It Happened One Autumn Book 3: Devil in Winter Book 4: Scandal in Spring Book 4. She cannot stand to be around the stuffy Earl, though he makes her tingle in odd places. Marcus steers clear of the willful American pretty much ever since he caught her playing baseball in her knickers.
She might do things to his libido, but that does not make her wife material. Trailblazer, charismatic, proper, loyal, hard-headed, graceful and noble. Seven words to describe Lillian Bowman, Lilly: Opinionated, snarky, strong, stubborn, innocent, independent and loyal. It Happened One Autumn, told from dual POVs, is an opposite attracts hate-to-love romance with sexual tension overload, hilarious situations and bantering plus lots of obstacles along the way. Stellar character development in both the superb cast to be featured in many more books and the unforgettable Lord Westcliff and his Lillian.

I was really looking forward to Lillian’s book. I loved her brash, foul mouthed, outspoken american ways. I couldn’t wait for her to bring Westcliff to his knees. So I was a little disappointed that for half the book Westcliff fought his attraction to Lillian. I also didn’t like that Lord St. Vincent was trying to court her or that they kissed. I wanted Westcliff to go after her like Simon from book one went after his wife!
I did like Westcliff and loved Lillian. I enjoyed their relationship when they got around to having one. I even liked St. Vincent even though he acted like a villain towards the end. I am still looking forward to his book with Evie. Overall it was an enjoyable read! Just not as good as I expected. View all 39 comments.
May 10, Auntee rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Every fan of historicals. Why are the best books the hardest to review? I’m not sure I can come up with enough superlatives for this one, the second book in Lisa Kleypas’s magical Wallflowers series. I think she hit the ball out of the park with this humorous, emotional, romantic read! I had my doubts coming into this, after reading Secrets of a Summer Night.
In that book Marcus, Lord Westcliff most eligible bachelor in Englandwas such an kkleypas, humorless stick-in-the-mud–how was I going to fall for him in his own Why are the best books the hardest to review? In that book Marcus, Lord Westcliff most eligible bachelor in Englandwas such an uptight, humorless stick-in-the-mud–how was I going to fall for him in his own book?
Ahh, but LK did a with his character, giving us his whole backstory including brutal halpenedand I got to understand him, and fall in love with him right along with the heroine, American soap heiress Lillian Bowman.
Now, Lillian–I loved this girl despite or maybe because she was so opinionated, headstrong, irreverent, stubborn, sharp-tongued, funny,–and she took no guff from the button-downed, often arrogant Westcliff. Oh how they battled! Their arguing and sniping masked a heap of sexual tension between the two. He wanted her but hated that he did; she wanted him but happendd that she did! You knew something had to give–who would be the first to break down and do ahppened about it?
There were many, many scenes in this book that either made me laugh or made me sigh in satisfaction. Any augumn the many conversations between Lillian and the other Wallflowers Annabelle, Evie, Daisy–they had such fun togetherbut especially between Lillian and younger sister Daisy and the experiments with the perfume that Lillian insisted worked as an aphrodesiac. I also got a chuckle out of Westcliff and his friends Hunt, St.
Vincent, Shaw discussing the frequency of klepas sexual liasons, and the time Hunt caught Westcliff and Lillian in a compromising position and teased him about his “once a week” beliefs. When Westcliff decides to give Lillian a few pointers about how to bat; their first kiss while hiding behind the hedgerow; the scene in the Butterfly Happene smokin’ hot ; the scene with the pear brandy funny and scorching hot ; when Westcliff professes his feelings and tells Lillian that she can be whoever she wants to be as long as she’s with him; the poached pear scene happsned As usual, Kleypas’s story is superbly written, with vivid descriptions of the characters, the food the calf’s head!
Kleypas leaves no stone unturned in her storytelling–the characters backstories and every emotion are all layed out for the reader to enjoy–I koeypas that I was right there in the s English countryside, witnessing it all. Now LK threw a bit of a curveball that I didn’t see coming, hap;ened St. Vincent who I was liking just fineautum made me dislike him. Now how is she going to redeem him in his book Devil in Winter? I can’t wait to find out! I don’t know if she can top this one, which earns 5 big stars!
