New York Times bestselling author LISA KLEYPAS delivers the unforgettable tale of a strong-willed beauty who encounters her match in one of London’s most notorious—yet irresistible—rakes . . .

An eccentric wallflower  . . .

Most debutantes dream of finding a husband. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans. The ambitious young beauty would much rather stay at home and plot out her new board game business than take part in the London Season. But one night at a glittering society ball, she’s ensnared in a scandal with a wickedly handsome stranger.

A cynical rake  . . .

After years of evading marital traps with ease, Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, has finally been caught by a rebellious girl who couldn’t be less suitable. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him. But Gabriel finds the high-spirited Pandora irresistible. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her, even if their marriage of convenience turns out to be the devil’s own bargain.

A perilous plot  . . .

After succumbing to Gabriel’s skilled and sensuous persuasion, Pandora agrees to become his bride. But soon she discovers that her entrepreneurial endeavors have accidentally involved her in a dangerous conspiracy—and only her husband can keep her safe. As Gabriel protects her from their unknown adversaries, they realize their devil’s bargain may just turn out to be a match made in heaven . . .


  • Disappointed!!!

    Devil In Winter was one of my favorite Lisa Kleypas stories. I was so looking forward to the son's story Devil in Spring. The story line was bland, and it didn't have the pop and sizzle of Devil In Winter. Pandora's character was weak and dull and so was Sabastian's son, there was nothing rakish about him. This book reminded me of the ones you purchase for a $1.99 the ones where you are not expecting much, just a story to pass the time. Very disappointed!!!

    So glad Lisa Kleypas is back to the Victorian era. If you read the earlier books you will see how everything tied together - past and present. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
  • Fun and gripping

    Love Lisa's books! It was fun to read about old characters.
  • Swoon-worthy revisit to the St. Vincent charms

    I loved returning briefly to the original wallflowers series, especially because Devil in Spring is about Evie and Sebastian's son. I hope after the Ravenels, she writes about all the wonderful siblings Gabriel has!! Witty banter, adorable sweet love affair, intrigue and danger with a happy ending that will have you sighing.
  • Well worth the wait!

    I was anxiously awaiting this book and it did not disappoint. I loved both characters and that's saying a lot bc I did not like Pandora in Marrying Winterborne. But in this book, her character is well developed. Some of the criticism has a been that she is too childlike......but what did you expect when she has been a literal prisoner her whole life. Also I loved was refreshing to read about the hero falling in love with their heroine first. I didn't find him insipid.....just bc he didn't have some big angst in his life, didn't make him less of a hero in this book. In reality, he is the son of a loving couple (Evie and Sebastian) who have given their all to the family. It would be weird if he did have angst filled issues. I of course LOVED anything about Evie and Sebastian.......Devil in Winter being one of my all time favorite books! The ending do feel a bit rushed but obviously the author was setting up future storylines. There were many funny moments in Pandora and Gabriel's interaction. This book was well worth the time!
  • Too political

    By Dolcedonna1
    Lisa has been my favorite historical romance author... this book however was way too political...very disappointing... it as though you tried to weave your political point of view in every turn of the novel... I read your stories to escape the political climate noise... there is a reason why women read historical romance and it's not because of women's suffrage or inequality...also, the IRA were not seeking to destroy the entire western world...ugh! Also, as a woman, I know my worth and this book was certainly not worth my time or hard earned money...
  • One of the best in the series

    I loved Gabriel. What a sweetheart and great hero. Liked Pandora but didn’t love her as much as I had hoped. But all in all it was a wonderful romance.

    This story started out well, but I kind of lost interest about half way through. It just didn't have the magic for me that I've found in many of her other stories.

    I don't like reviews that rehash the plot. So why I like Ms. Kleypas's writing is that the dialogue is clever, light and fun. There is always fun historical facts, decent sex, suspense, a strong heroine with a few quirks, and a sensitive sexy male lead. Her books , I cannot put down and they make me smile.😆
