From the Back Cover
For a duchess with practical desires, falling in love is an inconceivable part of her plan . . .
As owner of the Elysium Club, which caters to women’s fantasies, Aiden Trewlove is accustomed to introducing adventurous ladies to sin and vice. But he is uncharacteristically intrigued by the mysterious beauty who visits his club one night, yearning to indulge in the forbidden—with him. Drawn to her indomitable spirit, he breaks his rule of never becoming personally involved with his clientele and is determined to fully awaken her desires.
A recent widow, Selena Sheffield, Duchess of Lushing, has never known passion, not until Aiden’s slow, sensual seduction leads her on a journey of discovery and incredible pleasure. But her reasons for visiting the notorious club are not all that they seem.
As Selena’s motives become complicated by love, she finds herself with a most unexpected choice: forge ahead with a secret plan that could secure her future—or follow her heart, which could prove ruinous.
About the Author
When multiple New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath received her BA degree in psychology from the University of Texas, she had no idea she had gained a foundation that would help her create believable characters—characters often described as “real people.” The daughter of a British beauty and a Texan stationed at RAF Bovingdon, Lorraine was born in England but soon after moved to Texas. Her dual nationality has given her a love for all things British and Texan, and she enjoys weaving both heritages through her stories.

As a bastard, one thing Aiden knows how to do is prevent creating more bastards so when Selena presents him with her problem he isn't happy with the idea. If he would give her a son, it would be raised as a Duke but he would forever never know who his true father would be.
There were many tears throughout this book and while you understand why Selena is doing what she does it is hard to see two hearts broken by placing responsibility over love. The last few chapters provide the happy ending that these two lovers deserve and make the whole heart-wrenching read worth it in the end.
« The heart did as it wanted, loved who it would love. And seemed to have a penchant for choosing those who provided the most difficult of challenges. »
This was one unexpected ARC I was granted by the publisher Avon, and Mrs Lorraine Heath is part of the many authors I wanted to discover works. So once I finished my already due reads, I jumped in this new release.
I confess I am not fond of betraying/scheming characters, whatever the circumstances are. And early reviews left me with some doubts about this read.
But Mrs Heath’s talent erased my worries, I fell in love with all the main characters.
Sure Selena, The now widow of a duke, is at fault, following her brother’s silly scheme. She appears as very selfish, and in some way she is as with her lies she will provide her family but also herself a better future. Her marriage was one of convenience , an other choice she was robbed when she had to think about her family welfare, and even if she has not loved her husband with passion, she has cared for him.
Aiden Trewlove like all his sibling raised himself from the gutters, he has built a business of his own but the woman whom reared him made sure he has all the right cards in his hands.
He is such a caring, respectful and worthy man, always with due regards for not only the women surrounding him but also all the women and the weakest.
So was it Selena’s sadness and the mystery of her presence that drew him to her?
So soon their main problem was their two different agendas, he to introduce her to the pleasure of the flesh and she to get pregnant.
Hopefully the ruse was discovered at half mark.
It is a tale with aplenty of musings, each reflecting on each of their encounters, what to expect next or what transpired genuinely.
The author plays with her characters’ introspection as each has to rethink its past expectancies and decides what she/he wants for her/his future.
I should have be angry at Selena’s deceit, but I liked her and then loved her when she couldn’t abuse his trust anymore and going too far to have no way to turn around, even if she was close to carry out the unthinkable.
Their romance was quite doomed from its beginning, I wondered how the author would stitch everything together, but she did it with a harrowing scene close to the end of the book.
The side characters added to the story even if it was more a huis-clos or closed door narrative than a boulevard play. While I had no doubt about Aiden’s mother, I adored the way the vilain of the story received his right due by the person he lest expected it. So exquisite.
In all, I loved this book and I am very curious about the other Trewlowes siblings. Now I long for Fancy’s tale.
I was granted through Edelweiss an advance copy by the publisher Avon. I so loved this book I purchased my own copy.
Here is my true and unbiased opinion.
problem is destiny has choose other ways that Aiden and Lena will be in relationships. Mrs Health is has had a talent to develop a great characters and accordingly when the story others characters Aiden brothers shows and included his parents. I recommend this book and other books by this author. I had had reading her books for years and she is at the top of my list and if the readers read her books she will be at the top of their lists. I will read all the series and I recommend the readers will not be disappointed 😔.

Das Buch besteht zu 40% Wiederholungen, 40% aus Sexszenen und zu 20% aus Handlung, die auch noch an den Haaren herbeigezogen ist. Außerdem inkorrekt.
Ein Kind galt damals 12(!!) Monate nach dem Tod des Ehemannes als legitim, ehelich und erbberechtigt! Wer die Serie kennt wird es lesen wollen, allen anderen rate ich ab. Da hat die Autorin besseres geschrieben.
Hoffe sehr, dass der nächste Band wieder besser wird.
