Rarely have romance readers rallied around a redeemed bad boy as they have with Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent, the hero of the third book in Lisa Kleypas' Wallflowers series, Devil in Winter. Sebastian, Evie and their love story regularly rank near the top of readers' all-time favorites. Many times over the years, I've wondered about these two. Where are they? How many children did they have? Are they happy? I missed them! Well, guess what? THEY'RE BACK!!!!!!
That's right, dear readers. Yesterday, Lisa Kleypas released a video announcing the lead characters of her 2017 novel, Devil in Spring (the hero is Evie and Sebastian's son!) and shared a teaser scene starring our very own Sebastian and Evie! Watch the video announcement below...

I know. I know. We have to wait a whole year for this story. It's not fair, right? Except! Kleypas has another bright and shiny, brand new book all ready for release on May 31st and it's a winner!
Marrying Winterborne tells the highly anticipated story of Rhys Winterborne: coarse, self-made, Welsh, department store magnate and shy, sheltered, too-good-for-his-touch, Lady Helen Ravenel. These two are so, so good together! Both are so much more than they appear on the surface and their journey to love is classic Kleypas in all the very best ways.
Marrying Winterborne is one of the best books I've read this year. It's one of the best books I've read in many years. Not only have Rhys and Helen secured places among my favorite Kleypas couples but they are high on my list of all-time favorite couples by all authors. Mark your calendars for May 31st. This is one book you won't want to miss!
Are you as excited about the return of Evie and Sebastian as I am?
What other beloved romance couples would you like to see in a new book?
