Secrets of a Summer Night by Lisa Kleypas {Review}

Secrets of a Summer Night
{ Wallflowers Series #1}
by Lisa Kleypas
Mass Market Paperback, 375 pages
Published December 1st 2006 by Avon Books

"Four young ladies enter London society with one common goal: they must use their feminine wit and wiles to find a husband. So a daring husband-hunting scheme is born."
Annabelle Peyton, determined to save her family from disaster, decides to use her beauty and wit to tempt a suitable nobleman into making an offer of marriage. But Annabelle's most intriguing--and persistent--admirer, wealthy, powerful Simon Hunt, has made it clear that while he will introduce her to irresistible pleasure he will not offer marriage. Annabelle is determined to resist his unthinkable proposition . . . but it is impossible in the face of such skillful seduction.

Her friends, looking to help, conspire to entice a more suitable gentleman to offer for Annabelle, for only then will she be safe from Simon--and her own longings. But on one summer night, Annabelle succumbs to Simon's passionate embrace and tempting kisses . . . and she discovers that love is the most dangerous game of all.

First Line(s): Although Annabelle Peyton had been warned all her life never to take money from strangers, she made an exception one day... and quickly discovered why she should have heeded her mother's advice.

Favorite Line(s): “The truth is, you can never really know a man until you've loaned him money. And you can never know a woman until you've slept in her bed.”

My Review: I enjoyed this book! If you love "historical" romances this is right up your alley. Mega points for being written by the delightful Lisa Kleypas!
