Teatime and Books Review ~ Wicked and the Wallflower - Bareknuckle Bastards Series by Sarah MacLean

When a man known only as Devil finds his way into her bedchamber and offers her his help in landing a duke, Lady Felicity Faircloth agrees. She might be a spinster, but she’s seen love in action and is willing to do whatever it takes to ensure that her future husband will love her beyond reason—even if it means she must make a deal with a man more dangerous than she could imagine.

Bastard son of a duke, and king of London’s darkest corners, Devil has made a lifetime of wielding power and seizing opportunity, and Felicity Faircloth is everything he needs to exact a perfect revenge. All he has to do is turn the plain little mouse into an irresistible temptress, set his trap, and destroy his enemy. If the girl is ruined in the process, so be it.  
Except there’s nothing plain about Felicity Faircloth, and soon it’s Devil who is trapped…along with his heart.

A Huge Dynamite 5 Teacups for Sarah MacLean's latest: Wicked and the Wallflower! You will need not only big teacups but a huge pot to go along with this book as you are going to need the caffeine and warmth to keep you up as this book is one I could not put down! 

We first meet Devil, a bastard of a duke who is very mysterious, he and his other brothers are out for revenge upon the new Duke. At one of the ball's, they are putting their plan into place when Devil, ready to make his first move is interrupted by a lady running through the hall. He ducks into the corner of the balcony and the lady flees to the balcony and the solace and darkness it brings. Thinking herself alone, Lady Felicity expresses her frustration and hurt. Lady Felicity is a spinster and aging more each day. She knows her prospects of finding love are dwindling and she no longer fully embraces her spinsterhood. She desires to be back in the arms of the Ton. She was horribly tossed out by her friends and expressing her hurt and frustrations she hears a mysterious voice in the darkness and they soon open up a conversation and in the midst of it, both feel a drawing to each other. However, Felicity leaves the mysterious man to his darkness and heads back to the ballroom hoping for a glimpse of the new Duke. There she happens upon her former friends who are terribly putting her down and once they spot her they just tear her to pieces. Hurt and torn, Felicity fights back as best she can.

In order to assure that she finds deep love and her future husband loves her beyond words, she deals with the Devil himself; however, she did not bargain on falling for him herself. Can Devil give her the love she so desires?

I really related a lot to Felicity and one can't help but root for her, she's just an amazing character. I absolutely loved the chemistry between her and Devil. both have very sad paths, yet each invokes so much passion and depth to themselves and they help bring this out in each other. Just amazing characters and a really creative love story! Something you would not expect in other Historical Romance Novels, huge kudos to Ms. MacLean's creative genius!
