Publisher's Summary

It happened at the Ball….
Where beautiful but bold Lillian Bowman quickly learned that her independent American ways weren’t entirely “the thing.” And the most disapproving of all was insufferable, snobbish, and impossible Marcus, Lord Westcliff, London’s most eligible aristocrat.
It happened in the garden…
When Marcus shockingly – and dangerously – swept her into his arms. Lillian was overcome with a consuming passion for a man she didn’t even like. Time stood still; it was as if no one else existed…thank goodness they weren’t caught very nearly in the act!
It happened one autumn.…
Marcus was a man in charge of his own emotions, a bedrock of stability. But with Lillian, every touch was exquisite torture, every kiss an enticement for more. Yet how could he consider taking a woman so blatantly unsuitable…as his bride?

Great Second Book in the Wallflower Series

This book is even better than book one "Secrets of a Summer Night." It has romance, mystery, intrigue, and some whit. If you like historical romances you will love this one. Wonderful book.

Did not like main female charactor's voice

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I was irritated by the way Ms. Landor portrayed the voice of the main female character. It made me hate the main character by the end of the book. I realize she was to be outspoken, but it came across as arrogant. Also it took me half the book to get used to her male voices. <br/><br/>All in all the story was ok, I will read the series in book form and skip this narrator.

Very entertaining - escapism at its best

Great story And very good narration. I love my historical romances and don't get tied up in the exactness that some of my fellow listeners require - if you love escapism this is well worth a credit!

Kleypas does it again

i'm a big fan of lisa kleypas' writing style "It Happened One Autumn"was a thorough delight. I couldn't put it down I adored Lillian,I thought that Marcus, the intriguing Earl of Westcliff and Lillian Bowman the brash American heiress where two characters that made me feel so satisfied the whole book through



The plot of the story was very good with Lillian and Westcliff initially attempting to deny then to come to terms with their unexpected attraction to each other and then gradually discovering the deeper facets of each other's personality. Realizing that despite their mutual attraction, Westcliff considers her the precisely wrong woman to take as his wife, Lillian begins a flirtation with the fabulously handsome and rakish Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent. Although Sebastian is obviously being set up as the hero for the next book in the series, he is far more than wallpaper in this story. His character is well-developed



so if you like a hero who is strong yet unable to control his emotions in the face of true love, sexual tension that is electric, witty banter, and a hero and heroine who are strong in all areas, yet vulnerable to love, this is the book for you.



I HIGHLY recommend it!
