New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas delivers a scintillating tale of a beautiful young widow who finds passion with the one man she shouldn'tAlthough beautiful young widow Phoebe Lady Clare has never met West Ravenel she knows one thing for certain he's a mean rotten bully Back in boarding school he made her late husband's life a misery and she'll never forgive him for it But when Phoebe attends a family wedd If you asked me about my favorite Historical Romance author I wouldn't be able to pick one There are too many who write exceptional stories But there is one who will always be in the top three Lisa Kleypas I've read almost all of her HR books and there wasn't a single one I didn't love But we all have this one hero written by one of our favorite authors that stands out and will always occupy a special place in our hearts In my case that is Sebastian St Vincent from Devil in Winter That is not to say however that there isn't room for another one because let me tell you Weston Ravenel settled in right next to Sebastian ALL THE SWOONSPhoebe is a spirited young woman who married her childhood sweetheart Henry who was ailing from a disease that would eventually take him away from her At her brother Gabriel's wedding she meets the man who bullied Henry in boarding school Having to make nice with somebody who was so horrible as a youth goes against the grain but when she comes face to face with West he's not at all what she expected This man was the storm and the shelter pulling her into a deep encompassing darkness where there was too much to feel—hot soft firm sweet hungry rough silken tugging—She strained helplessly in his arms although she didn’t know whether she was trying to escape or press closer Like her mother Evie Phoebe has the heart of lioness brave fierce and tender for the ones she loves a steely will but also a tiny bit of her mother's shyness Admittedly I found her to be a little judgmental in the beginning but truth be told I'd probably react the same way if I were confronted with someone who hurt a loved one so deeply over a long period of time I also felt that Phoebe was of a mother a best friend to Henry than a wife she was stronger in every way so her sense of protection and justified indignation were strong One of my favorite scenes was when Phoebe forgave her husband's tormentorSoon West takes up residence in her mind and heart his unearthly good looks and boyish charm don't leave her unaffected By the end of the book I had nothing but love and admiration for Phoebe left How surprising life was Once she would never have considered this man for herself And now it would be impossible to consider anyone else Weston Ravenel was a scoundrel until he realized what he was doing to himself He sobered up and took over the management of his brother's estate Meeting Phoebe makes something click inside him and he falls hopelessly in love Hopeless because he's too tainted to ever consider marriage to this beautiful vibrant and good young woman He had so much of Sebastian in that regard He too felt that he never deserved Evie but he was way too much of a selfish rogue to not take her anyway “I don’t deserve her” he mumbled without intending to “Of course you don’t Neither do I deserve my wife It’s an unfair fact of life that the worst men end up with the best women” Westonwhat a dreamboat He was such a hardworking smart man audacious approachable humorous disarmingly charming swoonworthy and utterly endearing I laughed so much about his sense of humor the way he treated Phoebe's children like little people with their own personalities I adored him And when it got too dark in his mind I hurt for him it was the reason he didn't allow himself to be happy He kissed like a man who had lived too fast learned too late and had finally found the thing he wanted Now for one of the best part we get soooo much of Sebastian and I loved every single word coming out of his mouth He has become such a wise sweet man yet he still has this roguish witty charm that hasn't lost anything of his self confidence The years have been good to him and Evie and they are still as in love as they were back then a certain bathroom scene made sure that I wouldn't forget what a sensual creature he's always been I wouldn't mind to read how they fared after Devil in Winter “From time to time I may adjust a situation to achieve a desired outcome for the benefit of my children but that’s not meddling” “What do you call it then” “Parenting” he said smugly and kissed her before she could reply Lisa Kleypas has this incredible talent to make a scene appear right before your eyes while you read about it she writes in vivid pictures She also has a knack for timing the humor in her writing is on point and don't get me started on her beautiful writing style Ms Kleypas can write a thousand historical romance books and I'll read them all Devil's Daughter was everything I hoped for  unforgettable romantic dreamy uproarious laughter invoking and heartwarming The cherry on top would have been an epilogue but I have a feeling we'll see Phoebe and West in future books And that I was able to catch up with Sebastian and Evie Priceless And maybe just maybe Lisa Kleypas really is my favorite HR author
