In exchange for an honest review

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.

Selena is a widow and in dire straits. Her family is poor and she wants to give her siblings the freedom she did not have. But for that she would need to be raising a ducal heir, and she is not. Selena was played with this cool, calm voice and it fit her so well. She was the quintessential Duchess. I also liked that she had actually not had a bad marriage, no her husband had been kind, but they had been friends only. That is why her choices had me wondering, and  I did not know what route I wanted her to take.

Sparks fly, they really want each other.
We meet the other Trelowe bastards, an interesting bunch to be sure!

But she is a Duchess, he is a commoner. She needs money to back her siblings in society. So that is the drama.

I enjoyed it.

I did have to up the speed to 2x, but that is only a good thing in my book. I liked her calm Selena voice like I mentioned before, she was marvelous. She also had nice voices for the rest too. A good reading

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.


  1. It's so rare that you come up against a romance where there is doubt about how exactly, they will end up together. As a romance reader I love when that happens! Great review x

    1. It was really tricky, I just could not see it. And that is great

  2. Sounds good. I recently read Bringing Down the Duke and I loved that the author addresses the class divide instead of just saying "hey they are in love so they'll make it work."

    1. Here I just could not see it working, if she didn't give it all up that is

  3. Ooh that naughty Elysium Club!

  4. This sounds wonderful! I wish I could listen to books at 2x speed. My brain doesn't go that fast!

  5. Not really a book for me, but I really love Kate Reading.

  6. I have liked Lorraine Heath books in the past and this one sounds great on audio.

  7. I haven't read anything by Heath in a really long time but this sounds good, Especially the hero.

    And I love when you know it will end happy but HOW????

    1. HOW? Since I mean I did want her to keep the dukedom, but at the same time it was such a bad way to do it, so I wanted her to go

  8. I don't mind when I bump up the speed to 2x and it works because I can get through the story and find out what happens quicker. I'm impatient! I'll keep this one in mind. :)

    1. yes I certainly do not complain :D I love going even faster so that I can see the end
