The Duke In My Bed by Amelia Grey with Review by Samantha

The Duke in My Bed
by Amelia Hart
Genre: Historical Romance
Tour Organizer: N K Author Services

From bestselling author Amelia Grey comes The Duke in My Bed, 
wickedly romantic tale of one reckless bachelor, five unwed sisters,
 and a wildly unconventional game of love…
As a notorious member of the Heirs’ Club, Bray Drakestone can’t resist a
 from one of his well-heeled colleagues—especially when it involves money and horses. But the friendly 
wager takes an unexpected and deadly turn. Bray is forced to agree to marry one 
of his challenger’s five sisters—sight unseen. Now gamblers all over London are 
placing bets on whether Bray will actually go through with it…
Miss Louisa Prim, the eldest sister, doesn’t care a whit what the reckless rogue 
at the Heirs’ Club promised her brother—she has no intention of marrying the 
future Duke of Drakestone. Bray, however, sees her rejection as another 
challenge. He bets that the fiery Miss Prim will not only agree to marry him, 
she will propose to him! With four sisters behind her, Louisa knows she can’t
 lose. But why does her opponent have to be a divinely handsome scoundrel? 
And so sweetly, irresistibly seductive…
Bray has a problem. He and another gentleman were drinking and made a bet on a horse race between the two of them. Something went horribly wrong though. The other Gentleman had and accident and was killed. Before he died he asked two things of Bray. To take his dog and to marry the oldest of his sisters. So having made a death bed promise to the man in front of plenty of witnesses that he would. He has put it off as long as he can but now it's time. Once he see's her he thinks it won't be so bad being married to her. However, she doesn't want to marry him. So now it just became a challenge. He vows he will not marry her until she proposes to him.
Lousia wants nothing to do with the handsome gentleman that showed up at their door once she realized who he was. She had known about the deathbed promise. She also knows it's been years since the promise. She also blames Bray for her brothers death. But as much as she doesn't want to have anything to do with him she just can't seem to get him out of her head. She is beyond attracted to him and he just won't stop kissing her. How is she supposed to fight these feelings for him if he is always there breaking through all of the barriers she has set in place?
I absolutely loved this book! This is the second book that I have read by Amelia Grey and both times I have finished in one sitting unable to put the book down. I am a big fan of historical romance and Amelia has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Any chance that I have to read one of her books I will be jumping on.  This book has loveable characters in the Prim girls. The younger girls are utterly adorable. It is very easy to connect with Lousia's character. If you are a lover of historical Romance then this is definitely a book for you! I highly recommend reading!
