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?

First Thought when Finished: Minerva from Falling in Bed with a Duke just became my favorite leading lady in Lorraine’s connected series. I feel kinda bad because she knocked her mom down to 3rd!

Overall Thoughts:I freaking loved Minverva. I liked her brass and matter-of-fact way of looking at things. I also love that she is not a classic beauty. I already loved her parents but I was so glad to see them support her in every way. I have to say I liked her spirit too. Spinster or not–I am not sure I would have had the fortitude to visit the Nightengale. Ashe though I both loved and at moments really wasn’t sure if he was good enough for her. At one point in the story, I was yelling at him to use his words! Since I both listened to and read this book (yep twice y’all)–the second time around I yelled at him louder LOL. Though I never doubted his awesomeness the second time around. If you like historicals with peculiar leading ladies then I think you will love Falling Into Bed with a Duke!

Audio Thoughts

Narrated By Helen Lloyd, Rich Cope/Length: 10 hrs and 5 mins

Normally Helen is paired up with James but I actually really enjoyed her narration with Rich. I think this is the first time I have listened to him and he did an excellent job. Helen always does an outstanding job. If she or Susan are narrating Lorraine’s stuff, I know it will be excellent. I highly recommend this on audio.

  1. I love the heroine that is somewhat “modern” for her time, who thinks on her own and who doesn’t act like she needs a man to solve her problems.

    I’ve read Lorraine Heath before and loved her but I haven’t been able to catch up on all of them… YET. I will remedy this soon.

    I love when women can hold there on and get a little bit of sas. SASSY SASSY. It’s always good when they can also be both naughty and a lady.

    I really want this signed copy from you!!

    • Right? They are so fun just because bucking the rules of society while trying to stay at least somewhat respectable took some talent. Talent I wouldn’t have LOL
