I'd been waiting for ages to hear St Vincent's story. Love it that a strong woman turned him from a kidnapper of her best friend and rich heiress to a strong man who took an interest in something and someone besides himself. Watching him progress and grow with logical reasons behind his behaviors had me glued to the story. Went back and relistened to parts over and over because it's so richly layered. Even tho' this one ties together multiple story threads, it makes a fantastic stand alone if you've never listened to (or read) one of this author's books.
An absolute stand out.
Engaging, romantic, a satisfying read.
Dreaming of you. By the same author, and both are among her best. Romantic characters not only fall in love and lust, they genuinely like and appreciate each other. Also, has a great overall story.
She did a good job as voice actor creating character voices for the male characters rather than just speaking in a deeper voice.
My favorite moment is when Evie confides that she would be glad to have Sebastian as her husband even if he lost his looks.
I enjoyed seeing the positive changes in these characters. I like that Lisa Kleypas creates great drama without wallowing in it in her books!
Yes, I would recommend Lisa Kleypas to most!
I like that Evangeline finally gets a backbone while maintaining who she is.
Just a great Narrator!
I fell in love with Lord St Vincent in the last book and was very upset when he turned villain. I had to get this book so I could see him redeemed. He and Evie make a wonderful couple. I was not at all let down by this story. It was everything I had hoped and more.
I've fallen in love with Lisa's book and with Rosalyn's narration. they always transport me away from reality, and to a place where I feel a connection with the women, and drool over the men. Can I please keep one or two??? ;)
I enjoyed listening to this third in the series book. I love the idea of the wall flowers and that you can hear how they are doing as each book progresses.
This is my favorite in the wallflower series. The reason I like this one in particular is because darkly handsome Sebastian underwent a believable and remarkable change during the corse of this novel. He went from being a jerk to a true hero and a man worthy of poor misunderstood Evie. The only sad part is that I've forgotten what happens to the couple after their HEA. Evie fought so hard to stay with him at the club so they wouldn't be separated, and yet I can't see her staying there once the children come. Will they have to separate so Sebastian can run the club? How will they live their lives long term? I wish I knew. Such a wonderful story but with so many nagging questions. To get the answers I may have to listen to wallflowers books 4&5 and maybe the Hathaway's book one. Lol I'm sure it won't be a hardship. (Especially with the Hathaway book one since Cam is in it)
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
Story - Devil in Winter is the story of a young couple who don't know each other but then meet and plan a marriage of convenience which occurs in two days. Sebastian (a ladies' man) and Evie (a wallflower) develop a mutual sexual attraction quickly, but the rest of the relationship...well, you need to hear the book. The setting is London in the 1800's. The story is good, but I never really fell in love with the characters or cared a lot about their story. There are 3-4 sex scenes which are pretty hot, and there is a decent story line running along with the romance aspect.
Narrator - While the reader did a good job, I didn't like the way she performed Sebastian. He was portrayed as 32 years old and very sexy, but I thought he sounded like a stuffy old codger. NOT a romantic voice.
Overall - If you like historical romance, you will probably like this story, but it's definitely not a "must hear."
