In the first in a dazzling new series, New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath introduces the Hellions of Havisham—three charismatic rogues destined to lose their hearts...
After six unsuccessful Seasons, Miss Minerva Dodger chooses spinsterhood over fortune-hungry suitors. But thanks to the Nightingale Club, she can at least enjoy one night of pleasure. At that notorious establishment, ladies don masks before choosing a lover. The sinfully handsome Duke of Ashebury is more than willing to satisfy the secretive lady's desires—and draws Minerva into an exquisite, increasingly intimate affair.
A man of remarkable talents, Ashe soon deduces that his bedmate is the unconventional Miss Dodger. Intrigued by her wit and daring, he sets out to woo her in earnest. Yet Minerva refuses to trust him. How to court a woman he has already thoroughly seduced? And how to prove that the passion unleashed in darkness is only the beginning of a lifetime's pleasure?
Getting into this story the drama was compelling and very layered, with multiple issues that kept building keeping me engaged in Ashe and Minerva’s journey.
Ashe and Minerva’s romantic journey was a slow burning one that I really enjoyed filled with bold wit and a battle of wills. There was instant chemistry between them that started sizzling but as they got to really learn about each other it quickly turned blazing. I really enjoyed the premise of which they met, it was so scandalous and intimate it really brought up the intensity of the story and my curiosity at what would happen next.
I really enjoyed how the characters had such strong interesting personalities. It made their interactions with each other exciting and unpredictable. Giving their strong views it lead to some of the issues they faced but how they worked through their issues was what made the story so enjoyable. Overall I really enjoyed reading Falling Into Bed With A Duke by Lorraine Heath.
