Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage! Sebastian's reputation is so dangerous that thirty seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden's good name. Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse. But Evie's proposal comes with a condition: no lovemaking after their wedding night. She will never become just another of the dashing libertine's callously discarded broken hearts -- which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions ... or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.… (plus d'informations)

Book on CD read by Rosalyn Landor.

Book number three in the Wallflower regency-romance series.

Evangeline Jenner has been sent to live with her relatives, as her father, Ivo Jenner, does not deem it appropriate for her to grow up in his gambling club. Her maternal aunt and uncles have their eye on her fortune and have arranged a marriage for her to one of her cousins. But Evangeline has other plans. She presents herself at the home of Lord Sebastian St Vincent, a viscount with significant need of funds and a notorious rake, and strikes a bargain with the devil.

Well, this was a fun romp of a novel. The situations are melodramatic and full of sexual tension. Kleypas’s characters are straight out of central casting, but that’s part of the fun. The action moves forward at a steady pace, there are dastardly villians, innocent damsels, mysterious foreigners, handsome heroes, and a feisty heroine.

Rosalyn Landor does a marvelous job of reading the audio. She sets a good pace and does a pretty good job of differentiating the many characters. The deep voice she uses for Sebastian makes me laugh but it’s really all part of the fun. I did read about half the book in traditional text format, however. ( )

This is my favorite of the Wallflower books.

Evie needs help, the kind of help only an aristocrat on the edges of respectability can provide. Good thing she knows one. St. Vincent is a libertine in need of redemption. He agrees to Evie's proposition, mainly due to his own need, but there is something about her...

I wish it was as good as it was interesting. I liked Sebastian, but I couldn't care less for Evie. Constantly through the book, I'm told that Evie was strong-willed and intelligent, yet all I saw was her being docile and timid.
It was interesting but in the sense that you can't look away from a train-wreck, or maybe -less cynically speaking-seeking out that bit of the book that'll make it worth reading, you know, in the hopes that if I plow through the start maybe, at some point, the rest will make it worth reading and prove to me that it was not a complete waste of time. While the ending was good (in terms of quality of plot), didn't quite make up for the first half.

I really really liked this. I think Lisa Kleypas is becoming my favorite romance author. There's just nothing that I wouldn't like. ( )

Love Sebastian, but this is another one with a questionable love scene. Also not enough of Sebastian's perspective during his period of celibacy. It made his character development feel a bit flimsy

As Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent, stared at the young woman who had just barged her way into his London residence, it occurred to him that he might have tried to abduct the wrong heiress last week at Stony Cross Park.

One of Sebastian's brows arched. "Evie," he said dryly, "you eloped against your family's wishes, you married a notorious rake, and you're living in a gaming club. How much more damned gossip do you think you could cause?"
