If you love great historical romances, you'll love Lisa Kleypas's Wallflower series. In Devil in Winter, the third book in the Wallflower series, this was Evangeline Jenner's story of how she won the heart of Sebastian St. Vincent. She proposed a bargain he couldn't stand to lose: marry her to prevent her evil relations from forcing her into a marriage with her cousin. St. Vincent's agreed to the bargain and married her in a marriage of convenience. Later, after they married, with one night of seduction, they faced many challenges, including a dying father, her father's club, and secret enemies who wanted to do her in. When he protected her from them, when one time it endangered his life, they couldn't help, but fall in love with each other in the end.
I loved how each season corresponded to one central Wallflower character from the series to focus on their search for romance. To every season, there was a reason for why they find romance. For Evangeline and Sebastian, you can tell there was a chemistry between them. He would most certainly warm her heart during the winter season. Tenderness, passion, and heavenly bliss, that's what I love about their explosive connection between them. I didn't care much for her evil relations to set her up someone creepy, when that was the norm in the back of the day. What a splendid story.
