AUTHOR: Lorraine Heath
SERIES: Sins for All Season #4
RELEASE DATE: August 20 2019
GENRE: Historical Romane
RATING: 4 Stars


Lorraine Heath is certainly one of the authors who writes with romantic and poetic flourish. She just has this way that will make you swoon just for the prose alone. I was looking forward to THE DUCHESS IN HIS BED because I've had a soft spot for Aiden since Finn's book THE SCOUNDREL IN HER

I thoroughly enjoyed this addition to the Sins for All Seasons series. Of the six Trewlove children, I was most interested in reading Aiden’s story and Beast’s story. Aiden has intrigued me from the beginning, so I was happy to see his story. Next up is Fancy’s and maybe finally I’ll get to read Beast’s story.

Aiden is everything I thought he’d be – hard on the outside and soft in the center. He protects what is his and
Loved the hero, loved the glimpses into the lives of the previous couples but I hated the heroine Selena. Hated her. She was unlikeable and selfish, her motivations were selfish and she was using Aiden for her selfish purposes. Her redeeming quality was supposed to be that she was doing it for her sisters, to assure their position in society but she was mostly doing it for herself. I hated the way she made Aiden feel less than by insisting they could be together as long as they were never seen. ...more
I've given this an A for narration and a C+ for content at AudioGals - the narration grade bumps the overall grade up to 4-and-a-bit stars.

I’ve said before that I’m a fan of Lorraine Heath’s and it’s no secret that Kate Reading is one of my all-time favourite narrators. But The Duchess in His Bed, book four in the  Sins for All Seasons  series was a real slog and I had difficulty getting through it. The plot is fairly simple, albeit one that presented certain ethical dilemmas, but there was so

This one started out with too much inner-monologing. I skimmed and skimmed.

Ultimately, I did like the leads. Lorraine Heath is very good at creating characters I care about and want to see get their HEA. I just felt there was a lot of repetitive thought process going on when they could have been interacting with one another.

Here is a "quick" review:

I love Lorraine Heath but I had a really difficult time getting through this book. It took me 2 weeks to struggle through 300 pages and then I put it down and never picked it back up again. It wasn't exactly a conscious decision to stop reading it at that point, I just wasn't compelled to finish it.

For once I was not sure how this would end, I mean it is romance so I knew they would end up together but how?

Aiden is the bastard son of a nobleman who sold him to a babyfarm. Lucky for him a wonderful woman raised him and his other siblings. He now owns a gambling den, and one that caters to women. Women need to relax too and have some fun. And you know what, I liked all about Aiden, he was rather wonderful.

This was written by amazing author extraordinaire Lorraine Heath. That should tell you right there how scrumptious and delightful this story will be before turning the first page!! Seriously she is and has been one of my very favorite authors and her witty humor, strong emotiions and engaging characters always make for a memorable read!
The Prologue alone made me want to strangle a despicable Earl, but then the story picks up 32 years later with our heroine, Widow, Selena Sheffield, Duchess of Lu

This book was so good! I loved Aiden just as much as I knew I would and Lorraine Heath delivered another fantastic historical romance from beginning to end. When I first met Selena, I didn't think I'd like her that much because she was a bit of a snob and her whole plan didn't endear her all that much, considering it was Aiden that she chose for her plan. Still, she does a lot of growing over the course of this book and I ended up liking her for Aiden. Lorraine Heath is the bomb, one of my favor ...more

Ah, it’s been so long since I’ve read such an engrossing romance. I was a little hesitant, because some reviews made me think I wouldn’t like the heroine, but I found her completely empathetic and real. Selena was responsible and loving and so very strong, and I admired her greatly, both for her motivations at the start and her ultimate choices.

Aiden made my heart ache in the best way. So many of Lorraine Heath’s novels give me this bittersweet feeling, because she really does put her character

Aiden Trewlove understands women; it's part of his business of introducing them to vice at his club, The Elysium. But he never personally interacts with his guests. Until one masked woman catches his attention. She asks for forbidden moments with him and soon has him breaking all his own rules.

Selena Sheffield, the newly widowed Duchess of Lushing, is desperate. Her husband's untimely death without issue, though he left her well provided-for, means the crown will receive all his estates and Sele

The moment she entered his club, Aiden Trewlove noticed her. He watched her watching him, curious about her reason for being there and to see the face behind the mask she wear. Owner of the Elysium Club who caters to women, Aiden will charm and he might flirt, but he never mix business with pleasure. And after seeing how dangerous love can be, he swore to never allow any woman to capture his heart.

Love is not the reason why the recently widowed Duchess of Lushing came to Aiden's club. She can't

I enjoyed this fourth installment in Lorainne Heath's Sins for All Seasons series, though I will admit I was not a huge fan of the heroine.

This is Aiden Trewlove’s story. Fans of the series will remember he is the brother who runs Elysium— the highly improper getaway for ladies. It is there Selena approaches him with a very indecent proposal.

He doesn’t know it at the time, but she is very recently widowed and is looking to get pregnant so she can pass the baby off as her late husband‘s child. If

Huge 5 Teacups for The Duchess in His Bed by Lorraine Heath! You need full, steamy cups of tea for this one! What an amazing tale, wow I just can't say enough about it. The storytelling is so impelling and so historically accurate with some very creative license that just moves the story in so many ways and brings out elements one wouldn't think of!

I have read and enjoyed the previous books in this series and I think I've been most eager for Aiden's story, so I was excited to start it.

I loved Selena and Aiden. She's in a crap situation and doesn't have a lot of options. He's always got a mask on and maybe pushes people away. They're both loyal to their families and instantly attracted to the other. Oh, and I forgot to mention he's a complete marshmallow who legit gives her whatever she needs, regardless of what it is. It was great to see

Selena Sheffield, Duchess of Lushing, is in a bind. Her husband of seven years has passed away before the two had started a family. With no heirs to be found, the dukedom, which her husband's family had held for ages, is about to become extinct unless Selena can produce an heir. The problem is there is no chance that she is with child. While Selena could live a rather nice life with the provisions her husband made for her in his will, her siblings could n

Lorraine Heath is a new-to-me author, so I can attest that The Duchess in His Bed can be read independently of the series as a standalone with little to no confusion, even with it being the 4th installment in the Sins for All Seasons series. With that being said, I was definitely intrigued by the entire premise and the characterizations, enough so that I am thoroughly looking forward to reading from the beginning, r

Finally! I’ve been waiting for Aiden to find a woman who captures his attention and lays claim to his heart.

Aiden Trewlove has watched his brothers and sisters fall in love and marry well above their station, but he has no intention of ever settling down with one woman. That is until Selena Sheffield, Duchess of Lushing walks into his club and askes to be bedded.

Selena Sheffield is in need of a lover. And quickly. She must get

3.5 stars!
This book is the fourth in the series, but it can be read as a standalone. I walked into this one without having read the other 3 and I could follow the story with no problems.
Selena is a recently widowed duchess that needs to secure an heir in order to maintain her status and provide for her three little sisters. Her path takes her to Aiden, the owner of a gaming hell and bastard son of nobility. Aiden is immediately attracted to Selena but he struggles with what she's asking of him.
4.5 Fantastic Stars.

This book felt so special for me. I liked everything about it even though some of the narration felt too long.

Thanks Lorraine Heath for never disappointing .

I feel like Lorraine Heath read my rant on her previous book, The Scoundrel in Her Bed and decided to prove me wrong. This one is such an improvement and I was so happy that my favorite 19th-century-adult-romance author is back on track! As you fellow readers know, erotic romance is one of the most difficult genres for writing AND reading, considering the language used. I admit, there are times when I think to myself - how did the Brits reproduce if their seduction style included words like "thr ...more

Uneven, this romance frustrated me. It had all the makings for a good story but it simply did not work.

There are too many stories here - the gay husband and his dear friend, the over the top villain who fucks his latest mistress in the room down the hall from his wife (who used to be his mistress who he’s about to poison), the H who finally finds and bonds with his birth mother, the multiple sisters on both sides who are all portrayed as sweet, kind, pretty, good hearted Stepford-youngsters, the

Lorraine Heath has always had a soft spot for emotional love stories. No doubt because growing up, watching movies with her mom, she was taught that the best movies "won't half make you cry."​​​​​​​

She is the daughter of a British beauty (her mom won second place in a beauty contest sponsored by Max Factor
