The Duchess in His Bed
Sins For All Seasons Book 4
by Lorraine Heath
Genre: Historical Romance
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.
“I am here to be bedded.”
The bluntness of her words took him off guard.
He didn’t like at all the singular purpose for which she’d come to his club, and the irony was not lost on him. He reveled in sin, enjoyed his role in introducing people to vice. What the devil was the matter with him?
“If you look closely, you’ll see that some of the gents wear a red button on their left lapel. They will provide that service for you.”
“I’m not interested in them. You intrigue me, Mr. Trewlove. You are the one I want.”
“I do not involve myself with my clientele.”
“I’m not asking you to involve yourself. I’m asking you to bed me.”
Was it even possible to bed her without involving himself?
“We can stand here and debate or we can waltz and debate.” Bowing slightly, mockingly, if truth be told, he waved toward the dance floor. “Shall we?”
