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 . . .

Guh. I enjoyed this book so much. It wasn't Devil in Winter but that is the built image romance and I don't think anything has ever topped it.
I greatly enjoyed how utterly unique Pandora was! So different from any other heroine I've read. Gabriel was reminded me so much of Evie with his calming influence and had the smooth seductive demeanor of his father that he was the perfect blend of the Duke and Dunchess of Kingston!
Not going to lie, I enjoyed the parts with Evie and Sebastian and seeing their wonderful family had me grinning from ear to ear through the book.
The Victorian era was interesting and the wealth of research Kleypas put to page is fantastic. I'm so happy she's back on the historical train and so utterly enchanted with this unique story.
Thank you Lisa Kleypas!
Couldn't put it down
Pandora is hilarious. Laugh out loud humor coupled with rich character development makes this book pure pleasure to read. I hope Dragon gets his own book! Don't start this book unless you have time to finish it!

Lisa Kleypas’s romance and sex scenes are delicious and spicy, creative and poetic... but that isn’t what I love most about her writing. The rich descriptions, the breadth of the glimpses she gives us into Victorian life, the clever, laugh-out-loud wit... all delight, but to me, what makes her stories unique to this genre is her marvelous, nuanced characters. And Pandora the Pirate is my utter favorite. Pandora’s unconventional (and sometimes accidental) creativity is magnificent, and I hope I can read more about her in future stories.
