Description

New York Times bestselling author LISA KLEYPAS delivers the unforgettable tale of a strong-willed beauty who encounters her match in one of London’s most notorious—yet irresistible—rakes . . .

An eccentric wallflower  . . .

Most debutantes dream of finding a husband. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans. The ambitious young beauty would much rather stay at home and plot out her new board game business than take part in the London Season. But one night at a glittering society ball, she’s ensnared in a scandal with a wickedly handsome stranger.

A cynical rake  . . .

After years of evading marital traps with ease, Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, has finally been caught by a rebellious girl who couldn’t be less suitable. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him. But Gabriel finds the high-spirited Pandora irresistible. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her, even if their marriage of convenience turns out to be the devil’s own bargain.

A perilous plot  . . .

After succumbing to Gabriel’s skilled and sensuous persuasion, Pandora agrees to become his bride. But soon she discovers that her entrepreneurial endeavors have accidentally involved her in a dangerous conspiracy—and only her husband can keep her safe. As Gabriel protects her from their unknown adversaries, they realize their devil’s bargain may just turn out to be a match made in heaven . . .

Review

  • The most beautiful light hearted story

    By Mikaelahuffffff
    I owned this book as a paperback for years and lost it in a recent move. It’s one of those books that read for comfort because it’s so sweet. Needles to say I love this book and the whole series as well. I always feel like the stories are ending too soon but it’s only because I love the characters so much that I just want to keep enjoying them. I think we all wish we had a Gabriel in our lives who can love us not despite our flaws but because of them.
  • Best romance novel ever

    By JoinLittleRebel
    Lisa Kleypas has a magical way with words. She crafts delightfully real heroines, flaws and all. Her artful plots have just the right amount of twists and turns. Her attention to details is astounding. From the scenery to the dress, no one sets the stage better! I adore Pandora and Gabriel’s story. Pandora’s guileless curiosity provides the perfect counterpoint to Gabriel’s worldliness. Scene after scene, the development of their romance is perfection! If you enjoy this book read the Travis series.
  • Oscar Wilde Meets ADHD

    Lisa Kleypas’s romance and sex scenes are delicious and spicy, creative and poetic... but that isn’t what I love most about her writing. The rich descriptions, the breadth of the glimpses she gives us into Victorian life, the clever, laugh-out-loud wit... all delight, but to me, what makes her stories unique to this genre is her marvelous, nuanced characters. And Pandora the Pirate is my utter favorite. Pandora’s unconventional (and sometimes accidental) creativity is magnificent, and I hope I can read more about her in future stories.
  • Bravo Lisa, Favorite of the Ravenel Series!

    By Darbyj17
    Such a fantastic story! Pandora is a charming heroine. When learning about her character in earlier books of the series I was questioning how her story would play out but, as always, Lisa Kleypas shatters all my expectations! The addition of Sebastian and Evie and their family feels like a happy reunion for anyone who has read the Wallflower series, and the interactions and scenes they’re included in feel so authentic and well thought-out instead of a pop-in to the story. This book is so classically Lisa Kleypas but fantastically unique and fresh.
  • Twin?

    By moonbuggy11
    First of, there was no mention or description of Cassandra’s interaction with Pandora throughout the entire room. If they were supposed to be close, especially since they’re twins, this book did not show any confidentiality or private interaction between them. That’s what’s lacking in this book.
  • Loved it!

    By Yvette Br.
    I loved this book so much! So many surprising aspects of this book. I loved the woman empowerment as well as the unexpected suspense at the end. Their love story was amazing too. Definitely my favorite from the series. Great read.
  • Captivating

    Lady Pandora Ravenel is pretty and of marriageable age, but has no interest in tying the knot. Why would she want to hand over to a man the business she’s worked years to establish, along with her independence? But, because she was caught in a compromising position with Lord St. Vincent, she was expected to do just that. Gabriel Challon, Lord St. Vincent, has been an expert at avoiding marriage entrapment schemes until he came across Lady Pandora. She was in distress and Lord St. Vincent, couldn’t just leave her there. But, for or his act of kindness, he was going to be matched with the most unsuitable marriage partner possible. However, to his complete surprise, he found Lady Pandora’s spirited nature refreshing. Lord St. Vincent had never met another woman like her, probably because Lady Pandora was the complete opposite of the type of woman he should be marrying. But to his amazement, the more time he spent with her, the more besotted he became. Any woman would love to marry the devilishly handsome Lord, except, of course, Lady Pandora. But can Lady Pandora give up her independence to Gabriel, trust him with her business and still save her family from scandal? Devil In Spring is a well-written adult historical fiction romance, with witty dialogue, developed characters, and a captivating plot. A very enjoyable read.
  • Decent book

    By Logalita
    Hold have had more of a plot. The build up was nice. Good book overall. Easy reading
  • Best in the Ravenel Series

    By embege
    Pandora is a very unique young lady, and needs a fella who will understand her and not dismiss her ideas and desires. Gabriel is an elegant, worldly man who has a sense of humor and honor, and is a perfect match for her. The witty banter and romantic meetings are very well written. There are even visitors from other Kleypas novels. Definitely worth the read!
  • Disappointed!!!

    By RCMS-PLLC
    Devil In Winter was one of my favorite Lisa Kleypas stories. I was so looking forward to the son's story Devil in Spring. The story line was bland, and it didn't have the pop and sizzle of Devil In Winter. Pandora's character was weak and dull and so was Sabastian's son, there was nothing rakish about him. This book reminded me of the ones you purchase for a $1.99 the ones where you are not expecting much, just a story to pass the time. Very disappointed!!!
