I decided to Read The Devil in Winter because it was bad week and I need something to make me happy, at least my hope was that it would make me happy. I was wrong. This book made me beyond happy, I wanted to wrap myself up in this book and stay with it forever. Even the little sneak peak of The Devil in Spring had me making good book noises .
Evie goes to Sebastian, Lord St Vincent… did you hear me sigh? that man. Because she knows he’s desperate for an heiress with money, Which she just happens to be. Evie is desperate to get away from her disgustingly controlling aunt and uncles so it’s a perfect match so to speak once she convinces Lord St. Vincent its off to Grenta Green! Which Evie insists they don’t stop until they reach the village, from the beginning Lord St. Vincent took care of Evie making sure ate and she was warm he even helped her untie her boots! Sebastian,Lord St Vincent may have put on a good show with his snarkiness and ‘I don’t care about you attitude’ but really when push came to shove he was kind, sweet and just so very wicked. This book ( while I admittedly have yet to read Daisy’s story) is my favorite I feel it really showed how the relationship between Lord St.Vincent and Evie grew, everything from him protecting her from her relatives, to caring about her health while she took care of her father. The man even took a bullet for her! Oh you read that right. I feel this book was more relationship building focused and how both characters changed as people, Evie became more confident and found a hidden strength that she didn’t know she had, and Sebastian found he could actually love someone other than himself, that he actually deserved loved. it was just wonderful watching them change.
The best part of the book is when Evie starts to have doubts so she purposes a bet the Sebastian remain celibate for three months To quote that sexy beast…er I mean Sebastian “I’m Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent. I can’t be celibate. Everyone knows that.” Evie is devious in this and I love it so hard, secondly I found myself saying how can we deny this man ANYTHING?! Because he’s Sebastian,Lord St Vincent and it just felt a little wrong but it just worked on so many levels and made me happy.
Overall this mark book hit the mark on the sexy factor,heartwarming factor and the ability to make the reader fall in love. You know what I mean by that, that feeling you get when a book is done and you think ‘if only I could go back and stay longer’ or even reread it because you can’t let go. The Devil in Winter covered all the bases to make it a perfect romance novel . and in my opinion it is well worth the $4.99 and so worth the read I hardly ever read excerpts for the next book because I don’t want to ruin it, but you will want to read it ! I am so looking forward to The Devil in Spring!
I will leave you with the gorgeous cover and a picture of my version of Sebastion,Lord St Vincent
