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 .

I have and Always will be a fan of Lisa Kleypas. I am never disappointed with her books and I couldn’t wait for this one to arrive.
It was sort of like reuniting with long lost friends after years of being away and you see their kids. No longer babies but all grown up. Although, We get to glimpse some of the happily ever after of the former Lord and Lady St. Vincent, Evangeline and Sebastian with their children and grandchildren. And very tiny tease of Lord Westcliff of the wonderful Wallflower series.
Gabriel and Pandora were entertaining in their own right as it should be. I found my laughing out loud and Pandora’s questions about the Pox had me in tears!
This is a lovely tale of loving outside the lines of societal convention, allowing themselves to be individuals with a bit of history on women’s rights or the lack thereof and so much more.
I thoroughly enjoyed this one and I can only hope that Lisa writes more stories involving the Wallflower series children and oh also the Hathaway’s children!
