This is one of my favorite romance novels and the best of the Wallflower series. Loved it!

Possibly my favorite installment so far in Kleypas' Wallflowers series. The pairing of a totally degenerate rake (who was the villain in the previous book) with an excruciatingly shy girl with a stammer was a great choice on Kleypas' part, and the resulting relationship is super fun to read about. A very fun read.

Two desperate characters elope to secure their futures without any plans for a workable marriage, but love has a way of changing the best-made plans. Lisa Kleypas takes the villain from her last book, pairs him with the shyest of her Wallflower quartet of heroines, and shows us how to do the "reforming a rake" plotline right. With the hero's wonderful dry wit and a luscious sensuality between our couple, "Devil in Winter" is pure delight, from the hilarious wedding in Gretna Green to the colorful setting of a gambling club. A gold standard of historical romance.

What an amazingly rich and engrossing story! I was hooked from the very beginning and absolutely did not stop reading until the very end. Ho my god! The best in the series. I have to admit I wasn't expecting this. Kleypas blow my mind with Evangeline story. With this series Kleypas has created a wonderfully romantic world for us readers.

Hands down, best regency romance book ever. I read this (3rd in a series) first, and it's still my favorite of all of the historical romance books that I've read (and there've been a few). I own a copy of this book, and still break it out once in awhile to re-read. I love the development of the characters as well as the progression of their love story.

This is part of a series called the wallflowers which is excellent in itself, but this book goes beyond that! It is brilliant! And if you really want a juicy rendition of these books, listen to the audio books! Wow!

Really enjoyed this light romance. Lots of fun. A little surprising that someone supposedly so shy she can't speak for stammering is able to talk to this intimidating, domineering man with hardly a trace of her characteristic stammer. Looking forward to the final book in the series.

Book 3, my fave yet of the Wallflower series. Takes a break from Stoney Cross Park and gives the reader a different, slightly seedier perspective of the British Aristocracy. Def my fave in the series!
