(from our review) A Duchess in His Bed, the fourth installment in Lorraine Heath’s Sins for all Seasons series, features a recently widowed Duchess planning a great deception to save her family’s status within the ton. Selena Sheffield, the Duchess of Lushing, has to make a quick decision - can she get herself with child and pass the child off as the deceased Duke’s heir or does she let the dukedom, and all its power to help her siblings, pass back to the crown? After six years of a happy albeit passionless marriage, Selena remains childless. The Duke of Lushing has just passed after a short illness and Selena’s brother (a dissolute earl) makes a plan - if Selena quickly gets pregnant, her family can keep the prestige and wealth of the dukedom, and her three younger sisters will still be able to make good matches. Selena decides to try - she can’t stand the thought of her sisters suffering because her brother (and father) ran the earldom into debt. She chooses to seduce Aiden Trewlove, bastard to an unnamed nobleman and owner of the Elysium Club - a club designed for women of the ton to have some fun gaming and exploring their more adventurous sides.
