The Heirs’ Club only accepts titled gentlemen and the heir to the title as members. It must make interesting conversation at the family dinner table when the firstborn son is admitted but all additional sons are excluded. For three roguish young gentlemen this stuffy club is just the kind of place they feel compelled to liven up. Bray Drakestone, the future Duke of Drakestone, is the heir that opens the door to the stuffy gentlemen’s club; you’ll read about him in The Duke in My Bed (Book #1.) Harrison Thornwick, fourth son of the Earl of Thornwick, is one of Drakestone’s best friends that accompanies Drakestone to the club; you’ll learn more about Thornwick in The Earl Claims a Bride (Book #2.) Adam Greyhawke married young but after losing his wife and child he spent his days carousing and gambling with his two best friends; you’ll want to see how a grown up Greyhawke still seeks out his friends at the Heirs’ Club in the Wedding Night with the Earl (Book #3). Don’t miss out on the two holiday novellas that give insight into two other gentlemen who visit the Heirs’ Club; you’ll enjoy the holidays reading The Duke and Miss Christmas (Book #2.5) and Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis (Book #3.5).
My Review of: Wedding Night with the Earl (Book #3)
Our hero and heroine have both suffered. Adam Greyhawke married young only to lose his wife and first child.
Katherine Wright has been loved to the point of smothering ever since she became an orphan and then a ward of her elderly Uncle and Aunts. While Katherine has willingly and happily joined the Wilted Tea Society her Uncle insists she find a husband before the end of this – her third – season. Her Uncle will never rest until he has fulfilled his obligation to his deceased brother by securing Katherine’s future with a marriage to a proper gentleman. But Adam and Katherine have to face their physical and emotional fears that prevent them from living life to the fullest together.
Each book can be read as a stand-alone, yet when read in order Grey has woven a fuller dynamic storyline. While each book is a love story, Grey presents a deep friendship between the three heroes. And she does not forget the ladies’ friendships either. I can easily see a spinoff for the remaining ladies of the Wilted Tea Society. I would enjoy seeing them fall in love, too.
I liked Katherine and Adam. Grey did a wonderful job keeping their storyline realistic in their struggles yet ignites an instant attraction that builds every time they meet.
