A DEVIL’S BARGAIN
Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage!
Sebastian’s reputation is so dangerous that 30 seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden’s good name. 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: no lovemaking after their wedding night. 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…or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.

I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.
How on earth was Lisa Kleypas going to make a hero out of St. Vincent? That one question had me rushing to buy this book. By the end of the previous book in the series, I thought him the most despicable kind of reprobate. I defiantly set out to prove that there was no way she could convince me to like the cad. To pair him with sweet gentle Evie, my favorite wallflower? Oh how could Klypas be so cruel? Well, all I can say is I was half in love with the complex man myself by the end of the book, and her development and expansion of our shyest Wallflower's character was spot on. An absolutely fantastic read that was brought to life by Rosalyn Landor. Well done!
Totally loved St. Vincent and Evie. What a great match. The story continues with these two characters and brings the others back. Love that Lisa Kleypas does that without taking anything away from the main characters. Glad Rosalyn Landor was the narrator she brings the characters to life making the experience a wonderful one.
This is the third book in the Wallflower series, and probably one of my favorites in the series. There isn't one thing that I would change, including the most excellent of narrations. I also want to thank Audible for making available immediately upon it's release, thank you!
This wallflower series just keeps getting better and better! Lisa Kleypas writes a great story and successfully makes a hero out of the previous book's villain. Rosalyn Landor also does a great job with narration. Can't wait to listen to the next installment.
This is the 3rd book in the series. I actually listened to the first two and then ordered the last two from Amazon and read them, since they were not on Audible at that time. I loved this one so much, I purchased the audio version and listened to it and I love it even more now. Very sexy. The most steamy of the three and Sebastian is one of the best rake turned hero characters ever!
This audible book has everything it needs to be great and it is. Rosalyn Landor is one of my favorite narrators she captures each characters essence. This book is about Evangelines story the shyest of the wallflowers who blossoms while married to London's biggest and most sexiest rakes. Listening to this book never fails to put me in a good mood.

I love to read! With kids, that hobby is impossible...enter Audible...problem solved. Chores that I dread are now quiet time for this Mommy!!!
I am addicted to Audiobooks, and this series is one I will listen to again and again! Evie is this one character that I wanted to learn about, and the fact that Sebastian's character is finally fleshed out was very satisfying! I would definitely recommend you read them in order...worth the wait!
One of my favorites. Really awesome bad boy heros are far to few in regency works, but if you like them this is a book for you. Just had my SECOND listen and it was as good as the first. Kleypas is ALWAYS to be counted on for great plots, wonderful prose, and characters you don't want to give up. Hated to finish this one, again!
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
Lord St. Vincent was a selfish mean SOB on the previous book so I had my reservations about this book. Evie was the shyest of the wallflowers. This is the story of a marriage of convenience that unites two opposites. Lisa Kleypas works her magic into a wonderful story that complety redeems the manwhore St Vincent and makes Evie come out of her shell. A very romantic story and the sexiest of the series so far. Definitely recommend it to those who love a good Happily Ever After.
Narration: Rosalyn Landor is a very good narrator. Perfect appropriate accents and distinct voices for each character. I recommend this narrator for historical romance stories.
