Publisher's Summary

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.

A Male Perspective

What made the experience of listening to Secrets of a Summer Night the most enjoyable?

The way in which is was performed was excellent. The story was perhaps a bit drawn out.


If you’ve listened to books by Lisa Kleypas before, how does this one compare?

First time with this author


What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

The way in which her voice portrayed the various characters was extremely well done


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I like the way that the story built to a climax. The scene in the music room where Annabelle and Simon have to quietly wait while the musicians practice. The sexual tension and the anticipation is amazing


Any additional comments?

As a male, I don't usually read or listen to this kind of story. I must say it was very well written and the whole thing was very tastefully written.
