Bray Drakestone was part of a club that were reckless. One night one of the club members, Nathanial, dies and Bray makes a promise on Nathanial’s death bed that he would marry Nathanial’s sister. Bray made the promise to ease the mind of Nathanial, never did he think to actually marry the girl. Though two years later it seemed that Bray would have to follow through, but Miss Louisa Prim would not have him.
Miss Louisa Prim was heartbroken when her brother had died in an accident. She was even more furious when she was promised off to one of the men there that night. Louisa waits to hear from the Duke but it takes him two years to come to them. Louisa will not have him especially as she had to care for her sisters.
The Duke in My Bed is the first book to the series The Heir’s Club of Scoundrels Trilogy by Amelia Grey. I really liked this book. I thought it was fast paced, had some humor, and of course passion. I think what pulled me into the story was Louisa and her sisters.
Louisa’s character was the strong willed sister who did what she had to for her sisters. She protected them, loved them, and wanted them to make something of themselves. I loved that Louisa declined Bray’s proposal, well it really wasn’t a great proposal to begin with. Now I did find that Louisa was a little too quick to judge Bray. She already had her mind made up when it had come to Bray and she only really saw the faults in him. That will obviously change. Bray’s character was a carefree gentleman who had no thought to settling down. Bray doesn’t do a good job with Louisa and her sisters, but only at first. He does try and help out which showed that he was changing and for the better. It wasn’t like he was really bad, just inexperienced when it came to family.
I am reading the second book to the series next.
