“If you’re not reading Lisa Kleypas, you are missing the best historical romance has to offer.”
~ Under the Covers
Lisa Kleypas has proved, once again, that she has a magical gift for words. Whenever I start one of her books, I get swept up in the beautiful stories she weaves and transported to another time and place. It’s really a special experience that not many authors can get me to achieve. She does it every single time. And quickly after starting DEVIL IN SPRING, I knew this would be another one of those stories.
The anticipation for this story was high. The fact that this is Sebastian and Evie’s son we are talking about was more than I could bear. I needed to know about him, just as much as I needed to know what his parents were doing! For my Wallflowers fans, there will be definitely be some cute reminders of our favorite couple from the series. But maybe not quite as much as I was hoping for! As much as I was a bit disappointed by this fact, I didn’t feel like I was really missing it at any point in the story. I was so wrapped up in Gabriel and Pandora that I didn’t see anything else.
You can’t help but love Pandora. I’ve loved her from book 1 and from the very first page in this book. She’s fun and carefree, but also a strong, independent woman. Gabriel certainly has his hands full with her, and he shows throughout his courtship that he knows exactly how to handle her, while giving her everything she needs. Even though they find each other thrust together by circumstance, there is so much more that flourishes quickly thereafter.
Gabriel isn’t the typical rake hero, nor is he damaged or tortured by a dark past. There is something adorable about him that I couldn’t help but be drawn to. From the caring he shows with his siblings and family, to the sweet way he manages to draw Pandora out of her shell. Gabriel has everything you’d want in a great hero.
I can’t think of this series without thinking of an overload of sweetness. DEVIL IN SPRING was no different. Lisa Kleypas dials the romance up a notch with this sweet and endearing tale. It truly makes it difficult for me to pick a favorite among this series because they are all so good!! I just wish she would write faster, because I always gobble up her books in one sitting then I’m left waiting forever for another taste. If you’re not reading Lisa Kleypas, you are missing the best historical romance has to offer.
