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.

"By turns amusing, sensual and sober, but always compelling, this is a first-rate offering from a truly talented storyteller." (Publishers Weekly)
I would if I knew they liked romance novels. It's juicy, although it is quite formulaic.
This is going to be a fun and fantastic series if the rest continue like this first one. Such realistic characters and fun story. This Kleypas in her element and Landor at her best.
I would recomend it to those who like to get an arousel through their ears
The love scenes
It made me wan't my husband.
It is very classic romantic but with the grafic love scenes that really are well written. If you can get by your high literature standards, and don't laugh to much of the tall dark mysterious stranger caractor vs beautifull young damsell in distress theme, it is good for what it is.
The story is very intriguing . it did make me feel a little bit embarrassed. the story keeps you coming back for more listen to. It does capture a woman in what they are like and what other people to be like.
I loved the plot and the realistic way she conveys conversation and life. The narrator was amazing! Great accents and every character was recognizable. She obviously read what she was reading before she started because she always knew what emotion to put into the dialogue even before the author made note of it.
It was romantic, it made me chuckle and it made me tense with anticipation.
... this novel and it's story came in as a B+ to me. Still a good read/listen but it kinda pales in comparison to some of her other books. I had hoped to read all the Wallflower books but with #2 focusing on Lillian (Rosalyn Landor's American accent is hard on the ears, to be honest) I don't see myself reading a Wallflower novel beyond this one.Also, this book left a lot to be desired in terms of romantic magnatisim. They had character chemistry but it certainly didn't sweep me off my feet. It made me miss the passion of Alex & Lily (Then Came You) and Sara & Derrick (Dreaming Of You).
Great performance but her American accent sounds super obnoxious.
I wanted to feel more passion btwn the characters
yes over and over!!
Since this is part of a series I guess it would be the other books.
all of them
Very disappointed in this book. To much repeating previous dialogue/events between characters and the story dragged on-and-on. How many chapters did it take to tell us why "Mary" could not marry?
Say something about myself! I'm 66 with poor vision and HANDICAPPED,I save all my actual reading for my bible. My pleasure is at AUDIBLE!
with many short side trips that end up dead ends and some "stuff" one would not expect, this is a delightful and although a beautiful love story, it is a book with humor, friendship, backdoor planning and ....oh I don't want to say more because right at the moment you sit back, secure in the fact that you have the plot figured out ,WAM,..... not so and off it goes again...No profanity and oops there I go again..lots of surprises......READ THIS BOOK!!
The characters in this story are very well developed. I like the long-standing attraction between the two main characters and the way they truly came to understand and love one another. The action scenes are very well described and the plot is excellent.
