Secrets of a Summer Night by Lisa Kleypas Avon $67 This is the first of the Wallflower series, about four girls who help each other find husbands in 1840s London. Annabelle Peyton is determined to save her family from financial ruin. She decides to use her beauty and wit to tempt a nobleman into marriage. Time is running out because she's almost 25 and on her fourth season ('and one simply did not embark on a fifth season - it would be ridiculous'). But her most persistent admirer, Simon Hunt, has made it clear that, although he'll introduce her to pleasure he won't offer marriage. Annabelle tries to resist his proposition, but it's impossible in the face of such skilful seduction. Her friends conspire to entice a more suitable gentleman - to protect her from her desires. But one summer night, Annabelle succumbs to Simon's passion.
