Title: Winter’s Woman
Author: Scarlett Scott
Series: The Wicked Winters #9
Lady Evangeline Saltisford is betrothed to the most eligible bachelor in London. When she finds herself in danger she is hidden away for safety with the broody and gruff Devil Winter as her bodyguard. But she quickly realizes there’s more to Devil than he lets anyone see.
I am really loving these Winter men. Devil is a large overbearing man who uses his brawns to protect his family and business. He finds Lady Evangeline to be most annoying and uptight when he first interacts with her. But as you can imagine, their forced proximity brings with it new feelings, especially as they learn more about each other. Devil was very reluctant to let anyone in but he can’t resist Evie’s stubbornness. Devil was just another broody hero who I instantly liked and quickly grew to love the more I learned about him.
Evie was the proper society woman in the beginning but she quickly shows that she is different.. She isn’t afraid to stand up to the men, especially when it comes to decisions involving her. I was surprised by how much I liked her. Also I adored the scene with Evie reading to Devil in the library. It was totally a Beauty and the Beast moment, and I couldn’t get enough of it.
Overall, this was another wonderful historical romance from Scarlett Scott. I think she might be a new favorite historical romance author.
