Overview

In the Bed of a Duke (Cameron Sisters Series #3) by Cathy Maxwell

The distressed traveler Charlotte Cameron encounters on a rainy Scottish night is absolutely the worst man she could have invited into her carriage! It is Phillip Maddox, the reprehensible Duke of Colster, who brought the full weight of the ton's fury down upon her—simply because Charlotte encouraged her sister not to wed the powerful peer. And now the seductive devil responsible for her social ruin is sitting close enough to kiss . . .

Phillip's distaste for the meddlesome beauty matches Charlotte's—though, under alternate circumstances, he might have enjoyed sampling the sensuous charms of the tempting young chit.

There is grave danger, however, on the journey they now must reluctantly share—and a nemesis who means them both mortal harm. But can a passion that inconveniently ignites in the face of disaster erase a painful past . . . and lead two sworn enemies to a most unanticipated destination: the bedchamber?

In 1807 London, Duke Phillip Maddox blames Charlotte Cameron for her sister, his fiancée, jilting him at their betrothal ball. However, he learns that his older twin brother Justin, who died in childbirth, actually is alive. He was kidnapped by Laird MacKenna and was raised in the Highlands. Philip needs to know the truth.------ Charlotte travels by coach in a storm to see MacKenna who she met when he introduced himself by saying they share a common enemy. She sees a man needing a ride, but when he enters the carriage, Charlotte and Phillip recognize one another. They argue and soon physically fight. He suddenly kisses her and both lose control.----- Forced to flee an angry mob, they stop and make love. The next day eight Highlanders capture them and take them to MacKenna who has raised an army to free Scotland from the absentee lords that are selling out the land from underneath the long time tenant farmers. Mackenna¿s sister claims Judicium Dei, the judgment of God and selects Tavis as her champion to battle Phillip to the death. As they battle, Phillip knows he loves Charlotte. ----- This sequel to Cathy Maxwell¿s superb THE PRICE OF INDISCRETION is a superb Regency because the fine lead couple who were key secondary players in the previous tale deftly change from enemy to beloved. The strong support cast adds depth to this tense historical suspense. Though the escape from the villain who has plotted for years seems too easy, fans will appreciate this terrific early nineteenth century thriller.----- Harriet Klausner

I was so looking forward to reading this book when I looked at the synopsis. I was so disappointed. The heroine was so pathetic - she was duped by the so called hero and slept with him, losing her virginity which was the only thing she had left to bargain with since she and her sisters were orphans, and the hero (aka duke) was horrid to her. Also, the writing is the worst I have ever read in the historical romance genre. I understand this is not 'fine' literature but if there is a publishing house behind a piece of work - please spend the money on editors! All in all not what I expected - I advise readers to save their money and get something else - I wish I had!

Liked it ..................................................................................................................... Charlotte was a little on the easy side where the hero was concerned. He was a little stiff at times. But you had to like that he was searching for a long lost brother even thought it meant giving up the duke schtick. Of course that meant he could marry her even if she was unsuitable. Not so sure I like a hero with a superiority complex but then he was a duke and her sister did dump him. Overall it was still a pretty good story. Did wonder how they put down the Mackenna rebellion but that's probably in another book.

Love it! Love it! Great author! My favorite book of hers. Love the main characters! Found myself interested in the follow up books just to check in on them. Hero is truly adorable to me. Have reread several times! No offensive language, which I wish were the same for all romance writers.

In the Bed of a Duke by Cathy Maxwell (9780060740580)-The oldest Cameron sister, Charlotte, is escaping to Scotland for a possible husband to help her escape the wrath of Phillip Maddox, Duke of Closter. Closter has had a grudge against Charlotte since her sister publicly jilted him. Neither one is happy when Charlotte picks up Phillip on her way to Scotland. Phillip is in Scotland tracking down a rumor that his older twin brother, assumed dead at birth, is still alive. Through a series of extraordinary coincidences the three players end up on the run escaping from a gathering Scottish army. Most romances require the reader to suspend disbelief to some extent, but this story really does push too far. Both the main characters seem to act out of their character in the previous title. While the story is readable, it isn't really worth the effort unless you want to read the complete Cameron Sisters series.
