It’s a joy to read Lisa Kleypas. Every time I pick up one of her books, I’m instantly addicted, obsessed, consumed by the story. Drawn in by her singular way of weaving together humor, sexiness, intrigue and romance. I was so looking forward to reading Devil in Spring—I loved Devil in Winter and to think about a story which centered on Evie and Sebastian’s son… well I was just bursting with excitement, eager to get my hands on this novel.
Kleypas did not disappoint.
Gabriel and Pandora’s story is everything I hoped it would be. Funnier than usual, with notes of suspense woven in to keep the pace fast and fresh. I loved Pandora from the get go—we’d met her in Marrying Winterborne—and she was spirited, quirky and interesting… the perfect partner for a cynical rake like Gabriel St. Vincent.
Theirs is a story of unexpected passion and connection. Neither willing participants in the marriage season, both determined to live their lives by their own design. But when fate pushes them together (in a hilarious way), they can’t help but be drawn to each other, albeit reluctantly.
I can’t recommend this book enough, I loved it and I know you will too. You’ll happily be transported into the late 1800s, swept away by the love story of this feisty young woman and her cynical-but-kind-hearted rake.
For those of you new to Lisa Kleypas, even though this is the third book in the Ravenels series, you can pick this book up as a standalone, however I highly recommend you at least read Devil in Winter (and maybe Marrying Winterborne) prior to reading Devil in Spring.

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 . . .
