Good Book Devil in Winter *This review contains spoilers for It Happened One Autumn*DNF AT PAGE FUCKING EIGHT. BECAUSE RAAAAAAAAGE.Welcome to YET ANOTHER feminist rant. If that sort of thing isn’t for you, look away now, or unfriend or unfollow me. Because this sort of thing IS for me, and it’s something I do with alarming frequency when reviewing books in the romance genre. Let's jump right into it, shall we? THIS FUCKING "HERO".You have got to be kidding me with this shit. Look, I consider myself a Kleypas fangirl (see any of my reviews for the Hathaway series), but this book is completely unacceptable. This book made me nauseous. This book made me want to punch a baby dolphin in the blow hole. Don’t worry; I would never actually do that. Because I am not a Sea World trainer. Let’s talk about something that’s rampant in preeeeetty much the entire romance genre; the romanticization of abusive, rapey fuck knuckles. This book is a wonderful example of that. And by wonderful, I obviously mean rage-inducing. The “romantic lead” in this book is easily one of the most loathsome men I have ever come across in a romance novel, and if you take a look at my shelves, you’ll notice that I’ve read a lot of fucking romance novels. I’m beginning to think that I’ve read too many fucking romance novels. Let me tell you something, I can buy the redeemed rake trope. I can even, sometimes, fall madly in love with irredeemable assholes *cough* Jericho Barrons *cough* But even I have my limits. For example:# 1. You cannot take the villain of one book and make him the romantic lead in the next after he kidnaps a woman with the intent of marrying her against her will and then threatens to TORTURE her if she refuses to go along with it: "We're going to marry, sweet." "I won't cooperate," Lillian finally whispered. "I'm afraid you will," he replied evenly. “I know several methods to solicit your participation, though I would prefer not to cause you unnecessary pain.”# 2. You cannot take the villain of one book and make him the romantic lead in the next after the woman he kidnaps tells him that any consummation of their marriage will be rape and he completely fucking dismisses her because of his “sexual prowess”: “Not if it’s rape,” Lillian choked, flinching as she felt the easy slide of his palm over her shoulder. “It won’t be rape,” St. Vincent said gently. “If I know one thing darling, it’s how to…well, I won’t boast.”# 3. You cannot take the villain of one book and make him the romantic lead in the next after he threatens to RAPE the woman he kidnapped: “Don’t even think about struggling or kicking. Or I may decide to delay our journey while I demonstrate precisely what my paramours find so delightful about handcuffs.”Held in check by the credible threat of rape, Lillian held still as he carried her outside the carriage.# 4. You cannot take the villain of one book and make him the romantic lead in the next after he restrains and then sexually assaults the woman he kidnapped: A painful knot gathered in her throat as St. Vincent lifted a practiced hand to the exposed skin of her upper chest, and stroked the edge of her chemise. “Would that we had time to play,” he said lightly. Watching her face, he slid his fingers to the curve of her breast and fondled until he felt the nipple harden at his touch. Shamed and enraged, Lillian breathed rapidly through her nostrils.# 5. You cannot then try to make me question this fucking rapey piece of shit’s intent by opening your next book with the following: “Would you have f-forced yourself on her, or not?”Sebastian stared at her with patent mockery. “If I say no, Miss Jenner, how would you know if I were lying or not? No. I would not have raped her. Is that the answer you want? Believe it, then, if it makes you feel safer.”WHAT THE EVER-LOVING FUCK? HAVE THEY ALREADY FORGOTTEN #4?! HE DID FUCKING FORCE HIMSELF ON HER.Fuck this book. Fuck this male lead. This review can also be found at The Alliterates.

What a truly beautiful, romantic book, with so many sigh worthy moments, so many humorous moments, lots of wickedly sexy dialogued featuring some very satisfying emotional growth from both the hero and heroine I ve always loved the stammering, shy, yet beautiful red headed Wallflower character of Evie Jenner, and could hardly wait to read her story But when the hero of this book, 32 year old Sebastian, Lord St Vincent was introduced in It Happened One Autumn, I had my doubts about him Sure, he w [...]


  4. Sebastian is one of the sexiest heroes ever written Gosh the man just makes me melt Out of all the Wallflowers, Evie is my favorite, hands down I thought she was an interesting character and I wanted to know about her, although she didn t seem to say much But what she did and didn t say sparked my curiosity about her I knew I was eager to read her book I was overjoyed that Ms Kleypas paired her with Sebastian I saw a possibility there between them, don t ask me why Literally, I said, Yes when I [...]

  9. Colour me baffled Why does everyone love this book At least finally we have a genuine rake here meaning a total selfish, overbearing asshole He is a rake alright He is also a rake in need of money And then we have a shy, stuttering, abused heroine who has grown up in a family that can be described as dysfunctional In a way it all makes sense, she would gravitate towards overbearing assholes, while he enjoys being one AND getting praise for being a little better than her fucked up family.So the s [...]

  11. 3.5 starsNature had squandered an unreasonable quantity of male beauty on this undeserving creature.This was a re read for me, having first read it when it came out in 2006, it was a little different this time around.The Devil in Winter is amazingly popular It has been often voted as readers most popular romance novel And its hero, Sebastian, Lord St Vincent readers favourite romance hero Ever Its popularity, I think, is due almost entirely to its hero, Sebastian, and the pairing with the shy, s [...]


  12. 4 stars Mysteries of attraction could not always be explained through logic Sometimes the fractures in two separate souls became the very hinges that held them together Devil in Winter is probably the most hyped historical romance novel I ve ever come across, and while I really enjoyed it, I didn t love LOVE it like everyone else did This is the story of Evie the wallflower, cursed with a stutter she has spent much of her life on the side Once her home situation becomes life threatening she appr [...]

Devil in Winter is, no surprise here, another winner in Lisa Kleypas Wallflower series.In my opinion, this story was a deeper, slightly darker installment as we watch Evie escape the clutches of her horrid aunt and uncle, and take the necessary steps to remain free of them 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 Ms Kleypas wrote these [...]


  14. Everything has already been said about this top favourite, and there are already tons of great reviews here on covering both ends of the scale, so I won t go into storyline details, but as you can see by my rating, I happily fall in the category of readers who have utterly loved Devil in Winter.The marriage of convenience , the opposites attract and the reformed rake tropes are probably as old as the genre itself and have been done innumerable times before, though rarely as engagingly as I ve fo [...]


  15. 5 stars Historical Romance It s no wonder that The Devil in Winter is a Kleypas fan favorite and historical romance reader s dream because the beautiful, touching, and evocative love story of awkwardly shy wallflower with profound, quiet inner strength, Evangeline Jenner, and dashing libertine and unscrupulous, villainous rake Sebastian, Viscount St Vincent, is absolute magic Verrry big 5 stars for this remarkable, beautifully romantic, top favorite, keeper I think this quote from Marcus, Lord W [...]

  20. 4.5 Reformed Rake StarsI was really ready not to like this book I was totally loving St Vincent in the last one until.well you know what he did He didn t seem to take it well, my borrowing of his betrothed You k kidnapped her, Evangeline countered calmly Borrowing implies that you intended to give her back But it seems that our little stammering Evie is just as desperate if not even so than St Vincent and needs a husband quick Evie has way strength and gumption than I had initially thought Who [...]

  24. Loved Evie and Sebastian s romance Wanted to read their story since I read Gabriel their son and Pandora s in Devil in Spring Any fan of Devil in Winter should pick up Devil in Spring to see Evie and Sebastian in the future People mistook Evie for a shy wallflower with her stuttering, but it was clear from page one she had some determination and backbone Her mother s family was just awful and I m glad she had the chance to ditch them Sebastian was a infamous rake, so I was pleasantly surprised a [...]


  25. This is one of the loveliest historical romances I ve ever read Sebastian is a darling Indolent, witty and an amoral rake, he constantly surprises himself by his feelings for Evie and his efforts on her behalf From the beginning he protects and takes care of her He never mocks her stutters or social clumsiness The scene where he asks her what it will take for him to get back into her bed is awww worthy Evie is a worthy heroine Spirited but not foot stampingly annoying, stubborn but not stupid, s [...]


  26. Of course, this was a 5 star book I d give it infinity stars if that was possible.It ll take me a while to write a proper review for this, though I want to give justice to it, and to my feelings for it.Now, if you will excuse me, I ll go meditate under a waterfall for a few days Full review to follow.

    Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestI ve heard about the polarizing event in the previous book that caused so many people to hate Sebastian, Lord St Vincent I also agree with what others are saying that despite all the other characters in the book telling the readers, repeatedly, what a villain he is, he sure doesn t walk the walk apart from that one incident If I m going to suck it up and read a book about a rake and a virgin, then by God, I want a man who is in desperate need of reformation Th [...]


  28. 3.5 StarsOverall Opinion This was cute, but sadly wasn t all I had built it up to be in my expectations This book is on the top of most of the lists on GR for historical romances That along with all of the raving reviews needless to say I was expecting magic Yes, it was cute and I liked the characters.but I wasn t all that sucked in to their story as I would ve liked I m not even sure how to explain what was missing, but it definitely felt like something was missing The ending was lackluster, an [...]


  29. Sooooo good I loved St Vincent in the last book and in this one he actually gets swoon worthy St Vincent, who was than a little intimidating, with his golden beauty and wintery ice blue eyes , and a mouth made for kisses and lies He looked like a fallen angel, replete with all the dangerous male beauty that Lucifer could devise.Along with his gorgeous looks is a wicked sense of humor about his own depravity When he tells Evie that he doesn t want her living in the apartments over the gambling [...]
