After reading Mine Till Midnight, I discovered that it connected to the Wallflowers series. So I decided to read Secrets of a Summer Night, which is the first in that series.
Annabelle Peyton is a beautiful young lady. However, beauty is not the only thing most men in the Ton look for in a wife. Instead, they also look for a dowry. Since Annabelle has been out for some seasons, most men prefer to offer her carte blanche, rather than a marriage proposal.
Simon Hunt is the son of a butcher. But he didn’t let his modest origins stop him from becoming a very wealthy tradesman. What he wants, well, he finds a way to get. For the last few years, what he has wanted has been Annabelle. But she always puts him off.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In the book Secrets of a Summer Night, four ladies, who often spend their time along the wall during balls, decide to join together to help each other find husbands. First up is Annabelle because she is the eldest of them. But will she find a husband or not? Read and find out!
This book is not on Kindle Unlimited. It did take me some time to get into this one. But once I was in, I couldn’t wait to devour it. This one does get steamy (definitely not a fade-to-black situation), so if you’re looking for a clean, historical romance, this one is not for you!
