From Amazon.com:

Four young ladies enter London society with one necessary goal:they must use their feminine wit and wiles to find a husband. So they band together, and a daring husband-hunting scheme is born.
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?

FOUR POINT FIVE STARS

THE HUSBAND HUNTERS ARE BACK!
In London (1843) a pact is made between 4 wallflowers. They will help each other find husbands starting with the oldest and working down to the youngest.

(1) Annabelle is the oldest of the pact. Married – first book.
(2) Lillian is a rich American who has not acclimated to England.
(3) Evie is painfully shy and stutters.
(4) Daisy is the younger sister to Lillian.

IT HAPPENED ONE AUTUMN is another GREAT installment in this series of wallflowers. Lillian is the next one in line to find a husband. She’s unlike anything the English men are use to. She’s a rich American who comes off a little more wild and free than her English counterparts.

Then we have FOREVER and lifetime bachelor, Marcus, Lord Westcliff. His attraction to the brazen American girl is hidden from everyone. Being mixed up with someone of her standard wouldn’t look good for his family lineage.

In comes the play of a special perfume that holds a secret ingredient that turns men hot and heavy for you. Any time Marcus gets within a close distance to Lillian his animal magnetism goes wild for her.

Towards the end of the book there’s a little plot twist that I didn’t see coming which made for a fun adventure.

I read part of this and listened to the audio for the other half. If you haven’t read a Lisa Kleypas book you should give them a try. They’re well written with interesting plot lines.
