One of my top romantic reads so far this year

Waking Up With the Duke - Lorraine Heath

Opening Line: “I’ll consider your debt paid in full if you get my wife with child.”


Big Sigh* Oh this was just so good. Absolutely perfect romance filled with great dialogue and moments of humour amidst all the angst. Loved everything about this, and really, really wondered how this couple was going to get their HEA? Totally surprised by the outcome. Did not see that coming! What does one read next after such a perfect story? Thank you Lorraine Heath.


"Renowned for his bedchamber prowess, Ransom Seymour, the Duke of Ainsley, owes a debt to a friend. But the payment expected is most shocking, even to an unrepentant rake—for he's being asked to provide his friend's exquisite wife with what she most dearly covets: a child.


Lady Jayne Seymour, Marchioness of Walfort, is furious that such a scandalous agreement would be made. If she acquiesces, there must be rules: no kissing . . . and, certainly, no pleasure.


But unexpected things occur with the surprisingly tender duke—especially once Lady Jayne discovers the rogue can make her dream again . . . and Ransom realizes he's found the one woman he truly cannot live without."


Bummer she has to return to her husband when their month together is up. And just to keep the reader on their toes Heath makes the husband a good guy so you can’t even wish him harm.
