This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.

 


 

Four young ladies enter London society and band together to each find a husband. Has the third “Wallflower” now met her match?

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 thirty 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 have mixed feelings about this book. At one point, I think the overall plot has rather repeated itself enough. The same things end up happening making it predictable. The road toward achieving love is different though, and I personally like how things developed between Evie and Sebastian.

I like the personal development the main characters are going though; it made the story so much deeper and heartfelt. Language wise it’s still great as always, I’m truly a fan of Kleypas’ work. The genre isn’t usually my thing but the way she writes the stories and their buildups is just fantastic.

I had some issues at first with Sebastian and how he was displayed in the previous book, I thought it was weird that he was the lead actor in this book but as it turns out, he’s actually the most interesting male lead in the series so far, very unique take on a love affair.  Evie grew on me, be patient, she’s going to knock your socks off!

Her work is truly recommendable and I enjoy every minute reading about these four wallflowers.
