OMG! This book was so adorable! Sadly this is the last book of The Heirs’ Club of Scoundrels Trilogy. Thankfully it can be read as a stand-alone. The only one of the series I have read before this was a novella, The Duke and Miss Christmas; I loved it. This one was such an enjoyable story I loved all the characters it was a nice quick read for me I practically inhaled it. The interaction and the witty banter between the two is funny and really made the story, not to mention the adorable little boy and an energetic big dog.
Adam Greyhawke was nicknamed The Beast after rumors went around about his behavior after the death of his wife and unborn baby. Adam became a recluse, he moved to the country to rusticate in his misery. He vowed never to marry and have children again, fate was not on his side his brother died and he inherited the Earl title. Adam petitioned the King to pass the title on to the next in line, the next inline is his five year old orphaned cousin, Dixon. Now Adam is in charge of Dixon’s education and that he has to take care of the titled estates and business dealings until Dixon is old enough to take over the title himself. Adam must go to London to learn the business dealings and is satisfied with Dixon as his heir but doesn’t know what to do with the boy.
Miss Kathrine Wright is the orphaned niece of a Duke she came out three years prior and promised that this year was going to be her last by the end of the season she will be betrothed. Kathrine’s problem is that she has a limp, as a young child she was in an accident, an accident that killed her whole family. She then went to live with her Aunt and two Uncles, who dotted on her. Kathrine wants to marry for love and have a whole passel of kids to be named after her siblings who never had the chance to live their lives. Kathrine was ready to settle when Adam walked into her Uncle’s dinner party.
Adam is immediately taken with Kathrine, he couldn’t resist stealing a kiss at the end of the night. That kiss changed everything. Adam has every bit of confidence that Kathrine could walk without the aid of her cane and even learn to dance. Kathrine was up for the challenge and for spending more time with Adam. All the time they spent together when they meet by accident started to start rumors and Kathrine’s Duke Uncle was insistent they get married. Adam and Kathrine run into their first hiccup when Adam tells Kathrine he wouldn’t risk her life getting her child. But of course it all works out in the end.
Overall, I want more. I will definitely have to go back and read the first two books. This will not be the last Amelia Grey book I read.
