She makes bold move to visit him at his home where she propose the deal. He agrees and off they go do get married. Instantly changes are seen in the hero that where uncharacteristic of him.
It is like his dormant protective and caring instincts have been awoken by the heroine. As much as he has a sharp tongue his actions are very different. He does everything in his powers to ensure she is safe, comfortable and well cared for. He does everything her promised, but the heroine has many enemies that want her money or dead.
Only the hero stands in the way of those that want to harm her.
This story is very romantic and safe. You have heroine that has been beaten down, ridiculed and shy. However, she had an inner strength that the hero appreciated and loved about her. The climax scene was very touching. I loved how the hero lays down his life for her. I loved how he saves her countless times form her family and any that he felt threatened to take her.
The dialogue was brilliant and the story line well written. It is a safe read. There are no OW or OM from the second hero meets heroine. He loves everything about her. The more he falls in love with her the more devoted he is. It was so sweet how he loved to be near her, have her touch him with soft caresses, courts her, sweet talks to her and the last love scene was soooo romantic.
He worshipped her body is all I am saying. The ending was so sweet. Hero really opened up and you got to see why he was the way he was. He has gone through so much loss that he was afraid to love and really just wanted the love of a good woman. There is no cheating. Hero is heroine's first. Love scenes were beautiful written. Hero turns from rake to devoted husband. The humor was great. Best dialogue I have read.
Very witty and charming. Highly recommend this read. I really loved this story. It is the third in "the Wallflowers" series but it is fine as a stand alone. I have not read any other of the books in this particular series. The hero in this story, Lord St. Vincent, was the bad guy in one of the previous books in the series and in that book had kidnapped one of the four young ladies to elope to Scotland.
He was desperate to marry a rich wife due to his father's estate being nearly bankrupt. There are hints that his friend may have been opposed to being married so perhaps St.
Vincent felt he wasn't actually doing anything that would hurt his relationship with his best friend, but the friend stopped the kidnapping and beat St. Vincent quite badly and proceeded to marry the girl. Vincent is at home recuperating from the beating when one of the Wallflowers comes to his house insisting to talk to him. He recognizes her as Miss Evangeline Jenner, the painfully shy girl with a terrible stammer.
She is so shy she has never been able to carry on a meaningful conversation with any man at the many balls and events she has attended.
He is shocked to learn that she wants a marriage of convenience, in name only, with him even though he has a terrible reputation as a rake. She is desperate to hide from her guardians who have treated her abominably and she will soon come into money when she reaches the age of majority. She knows of St. Vincent's need for money and is willing to give him a large share of her money and let him continue to live the life of debauchery in exchange for his name to protect her from her aunts and uncles.
If he does not help her she is afraid they will force her to marry her cousin and suspects she will be murdered soon after so they will have access to her fortune. Vincent agrees this may be the answer to both his and her problems. So they immediately leave for Scotland where they can be married. They drive straight through at the fastest speed the horses can carry their carriage stopping only to change horses and take bathroom breaks, always looking over their shoulder for any sign of her relatives pursuing them.
That is only the start of their adventures. Lily's scandalous father runs a gambling parlor and he is dying of consumption. She arrives to take care of him when he is at his deathbed. Vincent is afraid she will be harmed at the rundown establishment so he goes with her and ends up running the place. He is so successful at pulling the place out of ruination the ton attends in droves. But not all the staff are glad to have a member of the aristocracy running the place and some blame Evie for him being there, and her life is in danger.
There are quite a few explicit scenes of marital sexual activity, but they are well written and very loving. I think the story would have been as good without them and I skimmed over most of them. The story is well written, good editing, and had appropriate word use.
Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse. But Evie's proposal comes with a condition: She will never become just another of the dashing libertine's callously discarded broken hearts -- which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions 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. My biggest complaint is when she did Sebastian's voice. She made him sound like some sort of pompous ass villain from an episode of Monty Python.
It did manage to kill the mood at times, admittedly. However, I adored this story so much that I couldn't even be bothered to mind that. I loved everything about it. Watching Sebastian slowly and unwillingly fall for the beautiful Evie. Watching Evie slowly grow into her own and become a strong and completely endearing heroine. I'm going back and reading yes reading. I don't think I can handle another pompous ass voiced hero LOL every other book in this series and the spin-off because I need Cam's book.
If you haven't read many historicals like me and want to dip your toes in the genre, you really can't go wrong with this one. A beautiful, touching and wonderfully written romance that will stay with me for a long time! Find me on: View all 51 comments. Mar 08, Kinga rated it it was ok. Colour me baffled. Why does everyone love this book? At least finally we have a genuine rake here — meaning a total selfish, overbearing asshole.
He is a rake alright. He is also a rake in need of money. And then we have a shy, stuttering, abused heroine who has grown up in a family that can be described as dysfunctional. In a way it all makes sense, she would gravitate towards overbearing assholes, while he enjoys being one AND getting praise for being a little better than her fucked-up family.
Devil in Winter
S Colour me baffled. She would share her inheritance if he promises to marry her and take her out of her messed-up domestic situation. So far, so good. Honestly, fuck knows, The book hardly makes it clear. I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. Please spare me this virginal nonsense, I beg you. So he whored around for the better part of his life but now he wants to settle down with an innocent flower.
He never knew love because how could he love those slutty women he banged. They were spoilt goods. But there is his virgin and he is gonna love her the best he knows how, meaning, by being a controlling, overbearing asshole. How romantic! Because there are men out there who take a rich heiress, drug her, try to rape her and force her to marry them.

He thought there was nothing new to experience. He was wrong. That never happened before. He experienced the longest, hardest climax of his life… memories of other women were banished permanently from his mind… there was only Evie, her playful fingers and frolicsome mouth causing him an agony of pleasure like nothing he ever felt before.

Sometimes the fractures in two separate souls become the very hinges that held them together. Lord Sebastian St. Vincent is not a good man. He is a man whore.
He is a spoiled rich boy. He is selfish. He is mean. His is penniless and must marry for money. After this attempt fails, Evie realizes that Lord St. Vincent is as desperate as she. Thus begins the Devil in Winter. He looked like a fallen angel, replete with all the dangerous male beauty that Lucifer could devise.
Sebastian has a dirty mouth, and I love it. He is sex on a stick. I just want to run my face up his body and purrrrrrr. He broods and smirks at the same time swoon! Everything he says is sarcastic and hilarious oops!
My panties just fell off! My Sebastian: Evangeline Jenner Evie has been physically abused by her Aunt and Uncle since she was a little girl. She stutters and is considered a wallflower. Her father is a gambling club owner and is dying, but her Aunt and Uncle refuse her wishes to see him.
Ever since she was promised to her cousin for marriage, she is desperate to get away from her abusers and will do anything necessary to see her father before he dies, including asking Lord St.
Vincent to marry her. Evie is a fabulous heroine. She is shy but also strong and intelligent. She has had to depend on herself her whole life. I love that she is the one to make the marriage proposition to Sebastian, knowing that it would only be a marriage of convenience.
She does what she has to do in order to survive. My Evie: Because they are traveling from London, it is a long trip. This trip is very significant because Ms. Kleypas quickly shows us a side of Sebastian that we had not seen in the previous book, a softer side while still keeping his callous, sarcastic side. The rest of the book takes place in the gambling club in the streets of London. Trust me. This book is much like Jane Eyre which is my favorite story of all time.
It has a darkness to it, and when you are least expecting it, a ray of light shines through. It shines through the characters as they grow and learn and love.
As high as the fire in me burns, Evie, I will stoke it in you. I want to fill every part of you…breathe the air from your lungs…leave my handprints on your soul.
My prize…my pleasure and pain…my endless desire. If you are looking for epic love, this is the book to read!!!!

Once her home situation becomes life threatening she approaches Sebastian St. Vincent with a proposition: Vincent needs money and Evie needs a way out and the two run off in the night and elope. So they make a deal, if he can go celibate for three months, Evie will succumb to him.
Everyone knows that. Basically more character development between the two main characters. I can tell Kleypas did her homework and I found the setting just as interesting as the plot.
I was able to read this without having read the first two books and while there were moments were it took me a moment to put everything together this book can be read as a standalone. I am definitely intrigued by the other characters and want to check out their stories asap!

Its popularity, I think, is due almost entirely to its hero, Sebastian, and the pairing with the shy, stuttering wallflower, Miss Evangeline Jenner. I hadn't planned on reviewing, but felt I needed to explain my rating to all my friends who love this book. I won't rehash the plot. There were some minor issues I had regarding plotpoints, lack of characterisation, etc but nothing major.
My main problems with The Devil in Winter were that it wasn't quite as wonderful as I remembered, mainly due to my disappointment that St Vincent wasn't really the villainous hero I'd thought, the sometimes flowery writing, and the lack of remorse and apology from the hero to Lillian.
The Badboy More Boy than Bad Ah, no When I'm told all sorts of deliciously bad things about him, I expect to see the evidence. Except for the incident in the previous book, I never saw anything that would really make me believe that this guy was dangerous. There was a lot of talk about how very bad he is, but very little action. He did say a few things to Evie that were But I'd thought of him as an unrepentant, tormented, whoring predator.
Instead, I found St Vincent just adorably naughty and boyishly charming. Touted as a golden, fallen angel, he was more angel than fallen. And for an ice-cold, cynical reprobate who supposedly did unspeakable things, he folded pretty quickly. Evie basically had him whipped soon after the nuptials.
For a man who ate virgins St Vincent is actually a delightful hero, but just not the dark, untamed antihero I'd remembered and expected. Purple Prose Here are some examples, mainly from the love scenes, that had me raising my eyebrows.
This light shade of purple just isn't for me. Sebastian gave himself up to the squeezing, enticing, pulsing flesh, letting her pull the ecstasy from him in great voluptuous surges.
That whole scene didn't come across to me as Jax Teller-bad, so much as incredibly stupid, immature and selfish. What I wanted from St Vincent here in this book though, was a genuine, heartfelt, remorseful apology to Lillian for his behaviour. Well, he did give an apology of sorts.
To her husband. Not good enough. I liked The Devil in Winter, but didn't love it. Maybe I've read too many historical romances since this was released, but there was nothing new here.
I did like the pairing of Sebastian and Evie; and St Vincent was charming, but for me, not outstanding. And I honestly never noticed before the purple descriptors that Lisa Kleypas uses, especially in her love scenes. I intend re-reading her The Hathaways series and the Travises.
I'm kind of interested to see if it truly is me, and for some reason I've moved on from Ms Kleypas's writing.
Or, if it's simply this series that hasn't wowed me. With an average rating of 4. View all comments.

The "marriage of convenience", the "opposites attract" and the "reformed rake" tropes are probably as old as the genre itself and have been done innumerable times before, though rarely as engagingly as I've found here. The storyline is nothing new and, frankly, the suspense sub-plot is not particularly well-structured, but the characterisations of the leads, the chemistry and the romance—oh, perfection! Evangeline is a great heroine, quietly strong and smart, but this is really Sebastian's book.
His debauched days are at an end as the novel starts, more due to a shortage of funds than goodwill to tell the truth, so we don't get to witness firsthand all his despicable proclivities though, if this aptly serves to make him more readily believable as a hero, the aftertaste of his rakish past is nonetheless present in the rightful suspicions surrounding him and in his ambivalent reactions to what probably are the most genuine feelings he has ever experienced in life.
And it's not an overnight change, thankfully. The inspired writing, each banter, every playful dialogue, all the touching interactions and meaningful love scenes splendidly do the rest. I can't be celibate. Historical Romance Lovers. Devil in Winter is, no surprise here, another winner in Lisa Kleypas' Wallflower series.
In my opinion, this story was a deeper, slightly darker installment as we watch Evie escape the clutches of her horrid aunt and uncle, and take the necessary steps to remain free of them. It was a pleasure watching her overcome her shyness and learn to stand up for herself and fight for what she wants - to be with her father who is dying of consumption and to ease him through his final days.
Kleypas wrote Devil in Winter is, no surprise here, another winner in Lisa Kleypas' Wallflower series. Kleypas wrote these moments with such tenderness, it was impossible not to shed tears right along with Evie. We also see Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent - yes, the Lord St. Vincent, villain extraordinaire from It Happened One Autumn - as he struggles to hold his defenses against the woman who has, despite his best efforts, found her way into his heart.
What had started out as a marriage of convenience became oh, so much more. Watching the transformation from the man he was, to the man he became is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. I loved how he cared for Evie, stumbling and fumbling his way through understanding these new, frightening emotions and learning how to act on them.
For me, the true joy in this novel came as the self-deprecating St. Vincent and the timid wallflower, Evie, cast off their pasts and took a chance for a future filled with light, love and happiness ever after.

Verrry big 5 stars for this remarkable, beautifully romantic, top favorite, keeper! How someone like Evangeline Jenner could have wrought such a change in St. Vincent, the most worldly of men, was difficult to understand. However, Westcliff had learned that the mysteries of attraction could not always be explained through logic.

The Devil in Winter
Not sure this is gonna help when it comes to Phoebe and West though. I'm not sure I was intrigued during his scenes when we met St. Vincent in It Happened One Autumn. He was menacing and seductive I tried to wait to read this, and then as I I did it. I tried to wait to read this, and then as I mentioned in an update, determined I could just, ya know, read it again instead of delayed gratification.
And a quick warning I'm rambling. Likely because my review did not start forming in my head until I had dealt with my swooning and fainting spells from this perfect book. Sebastian has just enough self-control, self-involvement, and desperation to make him a very interesting character.
Even his words in cruelty which there were several to the heroine were essentially protective of him or her. And basically, he wasn't fooling anyone.
I found his irritability to be the most telling trait about him. You can't get irritated if you don't feel, no matter what everyone, including yourself, says about you. You also probably don't keep friends for 22 years. Basically what I'm saying here is that Sebastian was clearly more like burning embers that just needed to be fanned to give light to the passion underneath As a bonus, he unexpectedly cracked me up.
I adored his quips and his exasperation in equal measure. I loved her.
