From Publishers Weekly

May 02, 2011 – In this striking third London's Greatest Lovers Victorian romance (after Pleasures of a Notorious Gentleman), the handsome duke of Ainsley, famed for his bedroom prowess, receives the proposition of his life when the paraplegic marquess of Walfort suggests that Ainsley impregnate Walfort's wife, Jayne, who despises Ainsley for his role in the accident that crippled her husband. Ainsley, who has always desired Jayne, agrees, and their month of secret passion leaves Jayne torn between her attraction to Ainsley and her loyalty to her husband. Ainsley's complicated family allows Heath to explore several difficult situations and ways that love can be obstructed by convention. While the eventual outcome is predictable, the sensitive handling of Jayne and Walfort's challenging relationship and the impressive tangle of love, guilt, and secrets will please those who prefer fiery love scenes balanced by complex emotional drama.

Customer Reviews

Great read

Although not my favorite of Lorraine Heath's books- it is still a worthy read. You can always count on her to deliver a great story. Can not wait for her next book :)


This is book and Promise Me Forever were heart wrenching in story and angst. It wasn't a cookie cutter. It was difficult for me to read straight through (very unusual). I had to take it in small doses. It was uncomfortable at first, beguiling and the characters weren't perfect (well, the duke could be close). The title is an interesting play in that Lady Jayne, in her growing relationship with Ainsley, wakes up to her self, to the things she thought she had, not just physically waking up with him.

Good romantic read
