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!
Sebastian, Viscount St. Vincent -- what a hot mess. The total degenerate who, after marrying solely for money, discovers he has not only a heart but also a talent for running his bride's inherited business. I do believe that LK has created the hottest bad boy in all of Romancelandia (although Lord Dain is a close second).
Rosalyn Landor is a wonderful narrator, and although I thought at first that her St. Vincent voice was a little too pompous, it grew on me. All of her other voices were great. She is indeed one of the top audiobook performers out there.

So far I love all the books in this series. This one is charming, romantic, and sexy. I cant say enough about this series. I highly recommend!
Never judge a book by its movie
Equal but Different. Both Are FANTASTIC
St. Vincent, he is quite the character. He plays the heartless rake, who is hiding all his pain of the losses he has experienced.
Along comes Evie,
A Self Proclaimed Wallflower who is abused by her oh so proper family. St. Vincent begins to see Evie's strength and loyalty, and soon wishes to be part of that circle.
She is the best.
Her characterization of St Vincent is brilliant!
Loved the relationship bewteen Evie and her Father, (Gambling club owner Ivo Jenner, who is introduced in the novel Dreaming of You)
The relationship between Evie and Cam Rohan ( who gets his own story in Mine Till Midnight)
and of course St. Vincent and Evie....it's hysterical when she lectures him..and how the relationship changes after a little twist of fate....
You will love this book, but be careful,, reading this book may make you a historical romance junkie
The heroines forward ness.
Sebastian. As a rake he overcomes and changes.
She is a very good narrator.
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!
