Classic Romance Between Two Strong Willed People
IT HAPPENED ONE AUTUMN is the second book in Lisa Kleypas’ Wallflower series. The series is the stories of four women who band together to find husbands. This book is the story of Lillian Bowman, the daughter of a wealthy American shoemaker, who has come to England to catch a peer for a husband. Sparks fly between Lillian and Marcus, the Earl of Westcliff. Lillian finds Marcus to be cold and domineering; Marcus finds Lillian to be an ungovernable menace. Of course, that makes them perfect for one another!
I really enjoyed this book. The romance between Lillian and Marcus sparkles. The book is funny and emotional. Keypads, of course, writes in such a manner that every page is interesting. My only complaint is that I find Lillian a difficult heroine to love. I believe it is my bias and not any weakness in the story. Bo th Lillian and Marcus are arrogant, strong willed characters. That makes it somewhat difficult for me to like her as quickly.
This book also has the strong appearance of St. Vincent,who is the villain here and the hero in the next book. I think he steals the book and the last part of the epilogue is my favorite.
