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 . . .

How could you not love Pandora and Gabriel ? They are great. You should start at the beginning of the series though. Lisa Kleypas never disappoints me. I hope you love it as much as I did.55
I owned this book as a paperback for years and lost it in a recent move. It’s one of those books that read for comfort because it’s so sweet. Needles to say I love this book and the whole series as well. I always feel like the stories are ending too soon but it’s only because I love the characters so much that I just want to keep enjoying them. I think we all wish we had a Gabriel in our lives who can love us not despite our flaws but because of them.55
Lisa Kleypas has a magical way with words. She crafts delightfully real heroines, flaws and all. Her artful plots have just the right amount of twists and turns. Her attention to details is astounding. From the scenery to the dress, no one sets the stage better! I adore Pandora and Gabriel’s story. Pandora’s guileless curiosity provides the perfect counterpoint to Gabriel’s worldliness. Scene after scene, the development of their romance is perfection! If you enjoy this book read the Travis series.55
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.55
Such a fantastic story! Pandora is a charming heroine. When learning about her character in earlier books of the series I was questioning how her story would play out but, as always, Lisa Kleypas shatters all my expectations! The addition of Sebastian and Evie and their family feels like a happy reunion for anyone who has read the Wallflower series, and the interactions and scenes they’re included in feel so authentic and well thought-out instead of a pop-in to the story. This book is so classically Lisa Kleypas but fantastically unique and fresh.55
