Likewise, everyone has dismissed Sebastian as nothing but a rake and so he resigned himself to being one, despite his very sweet and gentle nature. I loved how both he and Evie come to get strength from each other, once they let down their walls and allow themselves to rely on another person’s support, for the first time in both their lives. Ah, Evie,” she heard him say softly, “I must have a heart, after all…because right now it aches like the devil. He and Sebastian started out not liking each other much, but they form a nice relationship that made me happy.

They both had major walls up, and it was so nice to watch them both slowly lower them for each other. Although Lisa Kleypas is a new to me Author, the fantastic reviews I've read from friends here on her works gave me comfort in regards to what to expect.I will admit that he was quite the silver-tonged devil when he wanted to be, as well as an incredibly skillful lover, but I really wish that those qualities had been embodied in a more pleasing overall package. I would also love any recommendations for similar books for next time I’m in the mood for some romance! end of spoiler*** Now how was Lisa Kleypas going to redeem this devilish rake and make me fall in love with him? I’ve got knots in my stomach, and constant pains in my chest, and when I see you talking to any man, I go insane with jealousy… Do as you please. He tried to act like he was a villain that didn't care for nothing but his actions always showed what a great guy he was.

She has a couple more vertebrae than other heroines cast in her mold, and I did like that she at least tried to stick up for herself and for the most part, spoke her mind when it counted. They bickered too much, though, and when their arguments started getting redundant, I began to eye the page count. I was *quite* worried that all the men or women were going to start melting together as it tends to happen in large groups. She goes through so much growth in this book, and really comes into her own and finds so much self worth and confidence. She went in with no expectations, and continued to outsmart Sebastian and protect herself as a result.Sebastian's discovery that he has unwittingly found an occupation that he both wants and is good at is so uplifting, while Evie, away from her ghastly relations, steps out of her shy and retiring nature, enough to give Sebastian a run for his money.

I also think that this story may have stirred up some personal issues (a very rare thing), and out of a sense of fairness to an author I've admired for a long time, I wanted to make sure that I didn't penalize the book/author due to my own objectivity being somewhat clouded by my personal prejudices. I am on to Daisy's book and though I'm sure I will enjoy it I think this book will go down as my favorite of the series! She doesn't care about his reputation as a skirt chaser (she wants nothing to do with him once they're married)--she just needs his protection from her greedy relatives.He did start to grow on me a bit when he showed some human kindness toward Evie during their arduous trip to Gretna Green, as well as during and after the wedding ceremony. Outwardly, she is a painfully shy but sweet girl, yet inwardly, she has a strength of spirit that can be easy for others to miss. They marry to save her from her abusive family and him from his debts, but her innocent sweetness melts his hardened heart.

It’s no wonder that Devil in Winter is a Kleypas fan favorite and historical romance reader’s dream. These are things that he does very early on that seem to come from an innate desire to make her comfortable, as well as self-restraint, which is at odds with his outward persona of a thoughtless hedonistic rake. Normally, we may be treated to a wallflower turning into a butterfly or a rake turning into a dutiful and loving husband, but in this case, we get both. It was a pleasure watching her overcome her shyness and learn to stand up for herself and fight for what she wants - to be with her father who is dying of consumption and to ease him through his final days.I was able to read this without having read the first two books and while there were moments were it took me a moment to put everything together this book can be read as a standalone.
