Review: Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas (2021)

The Ravenels, Book #7 

(a.k.a. The Wallflowers, The Next Generation, Book #3) 

(a.k.a. The Devil in Winter Epilogues, also Book #3)

Erin’s reviewed the whole Ravenels series: Book #1 | Book #2 | Book #3 | Book #4 | Book #5 | Book #6

Heat Factor: These are some horny Victorians

Character Chemistry: It’s totally insta-love, and it was written lucidly enough that it worked for me

Plot: “We’ll never work because of an unequal match” + “Why is someone trying to murder me?”

Overall: I re-upped my membership in the Bad Decisions Book Club for this one and read it in one sitting. No regrets.
