"I'm Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent. I can't be celibate. Everyone knows that."

Desperate to escape her scheming relatives, Evangeline Jenner has sought the help of the most infamous scoundrel in London.

A marriage of convenience is the only solution.

No one would have ever paired the shy, stammering wallflower with the sinfully handsome viscount. It quickly becomes clear, however, that Evie is a woman of hidden strength--and Sebastian desires her more than any woman he's ever known.

Determined to win her husband's elusive heart, Evie dares to strike a bargain with the devil: If Sebastian can stay celibate for three months, she will allow him into her bed.

When Evie is threatened by a vengeful enemy from the past, Sebastian vows to do whatever it takes to protect his wife . . . even at the expense of his own life.

Together they will defy their perilous fate, for the sake of all-consuming love.

This is one of my favorite romance novels and the best of the Wallflower series. Loved it!

Possibly my favorite installment so far in Kleypas' Wallflowers series. The pairing of a totally degenerate rake (who was the villain in the previous book) with an excruciatingly shy girl with a stammer was a great choice on Kleypas' part, and the resulting relationship is super fun to read about. A very fun read.

Two desperate characters elope to secure their futures without any plans for a workable marriage, but love has a way of changing the best-made plans. Lisa Kleypas takes the villain from her last book, pairs him with the shyest of her Wallflower quartet of heroines, and shows us how to do the "reforming a rake" plotline right. With the hero's wonderful dry wit and a luscious sensuality between our couple, "Devil in Winter" is pure delight, from the hilarious wedding in Gretna Green to the colorful setting of a gambling club. A gold standard of historical romance.

What an amazingly rich and engrossing story! I was hooked from the very beginning and absolutely did not stop reading until the very end. Ho my god! The best in the series. I have to admit I wasn't expecting this. Kleypas blow my mind with Evangeline story. With this series Kleypas has created a wonderfully romantic world for us readers.

Hands down, best regency romance book ever. I read this (3rd in a series) first, and it's still my favorite of all of the historical romance books that I've read (and there've been a few). I own a copy of this book, and still break it out once in awhile to re-read. I love the development of the characters as well as the progression of their love story.

This is part of a series called the wallflowers which is excellent in itself, but this book goes beyond that! It is brilliant! And if you really want a juicy rendition of these books, listen to the audio books! Wow!

Really enjoyed this light romance. Lots of fun. A little surprising that someone supposedly so shy she can't speak for stammering is able to talk to this intimidating, domineering man with hardly a trace of her characteristic stammer. Looking forward to the final book in the series.

Book 3, my fave yet of the Wallflower series. Takes a break from Stoney Cross Park and gives the reader a different, slightly seedier perspective of the British Aristocracy. Def my fave in the series!
