Bestseller Kleypas's latest begins with the rake Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent, striking a deal with Evangeline Jenner, the stuttering daughter of a sickly club owner whose uncle is plotting to marry her to a cousin, kill her and take her father's money. Evangeline offers up her future inheritance to Sebastian in exchange for the protection of marriage and assistance in seeing her father before he dies. They embark for Scotland, where they have a hasty marriage. Despite their mutual mistrust, they forge a tentative bond, but Sebastian is alarmed by his powerful reaction to the consummation, while Evie tries to defy her feelings for this "muff-chaser." After Evie's father dies, Sebastian takes an interest in the club, and while reforming it, Evie challenges him to a three-month celibacy bet before she'll bed him again. The suspicious newlyweds fight growing passion and frustration while a mysterious villain makes attempts on Evie's life. Kleypas's fans will appreciate the high action and scintillating twists and trysts.

St. Vincent has returned from his foiled attempt to kidnap, wed and seduce Lillian Bowman. Beaten and downtrodden, he's not expecting the shy and reclusive redhead that insists on entry into his home. Even more surprising, he's astonished at Evangeline Jenner's proposal of marriage - a marriage of convenience in which she receives sanctuary and protection from her abusive family and he gets what he so desperately needs. That would be money, of course. The daughter of a notorious gaming club owner and a rumored half-wit, St. Vincent never thought he'd be stooping to such a level as to consider Evie's offer. Hard times call for desperate measures, on both their parts, and the two are quickly off the Gretna Green for an elopement of the not-so-heart. Both are determined to maintain their distance, but both are in for some eye opening experiences, ones where prior assumptions and false conclusions about one another will be tossed to the curb. Is it really possible for a self-professed rake to do a complete one eighty? The chances are good for St. Vincent, and watching his awakening to Evie's not so obvious charms is a wonderful experience.Read more ›

If he doesn't he will loose the one thing in his life that means something. But will he admit that his heart has already Evie's?
Sebastian and Evie were wonderful protagonists in this romance. Ms. Kleypas has done a fine job turning this anti-hero into a hero readers will fall in love with. Ms. Kleypas is at the head of her game now. Her stories only get better with each effort. This one read you will want to add to your "must read" stack.
Wow, Lisa has really outdone herself this time. It's is rare when you want to read a book so badly just because you got a glimpse of the hero's and heroine's character from another book. I feel in love with Devil in Winter long before i got the chance to read it! Eva and Seb are so different from one another, yet so alike in their vulnerabilities and loneliness.
He is unscrupulous, a careless seducer who isn't even above betraying his best friend to suit his purposes. He is beautiful, like the Devil, and just as cunning. Cynical, corrupt, and weary, he is the epitome of a RAKE. To top it off, he needs money desperately.
Enter Eva: An awkward redhead, painfully shy with a stammer! She could've made a perfect Cinderella... hated and abused by her uncle's family, she flees to the lair of London's most notorious lord in the middle of night. She has no illusions about the man, yet he is her only hope. They make a deal which would provide Sebatian with funds and Eva protection. They were married with no love lost between them, but then, love is stubborn.
fall in love with each other. The end is predictable, but the rest of the book is just marvelous.
You easily fall for Evangeline Jenner and Lord St-Vincent, because they are believable caracters, full of flaws, but heartful. Their chemistry is undeniable. You actually feel the passion/tension/fright in their relationship. You feel the longing they experience for one another. It is so well written that your own heart is overwhelmed by all the feelings described. The action is great, since it is realistic, and the love scenes are simply WOW !
Last, but not least, let's not forget Cam Rohan who will eventually have his own great story. It is remarkable how Kleypas is able to include past and futur main caracters in her stories and still continu to be loyal to them in each different novel.
Guys (girls, lol) you are in for a treat, garanteed!

until the last page.
Good historical romances must be very difficult to write, for the author must walk a very fine line between delivering a sense of historical realism and addressing the modern... Read morePublished on Dec 8 2013 by Amazon Customer
