Don’t Miss Erica Ridley’s Newest Release, Lord of Night.
I Loved It!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lord of Night, the third book in the Rogues to Riches series. It’s a well-written and entertaining historical fiction romance. I was captivated from the first page until the last.
Miss Dahlia Grenville was a Baron’s daughter, but she didn’t act like one. Her passions didn’t lie in pretty gowns, fancy balls, or even titled gentlemen, but in the St. Giles School for Girls. Although Dahlia knew that she should care that being headmistress of a boarding school, lowered her social standing with the Ton, but she didn’t; except for the fact that she needed their money. Her mother wanted her to marry a titled gentleman. But, the acceptable men whom she’d met were either a dandy or a rake, and she had no use for them. Her heart yearned, for Inspector Simon Spaulding, a man Dahlia knew; she could never have. And the more time she spent with Simon, the harder, it was to keep her heart from falling for him. Her focus needed to stay on the girls. It took a lot of time; dedication, and money to keep a boarding school open. So, when Dahlia ran out of funds, she did what no Lady would ever do; she became a thief.
Inspector Simon Spaulding was a respected Bow Street runner, but he should have been a marquess. His half brother, the Marquess’s legitimate son, however, was the one to receive his father’s title. Simon did his best to make a name for himself. He was dedicated to clearing the London streets of crime; and was a stickler for following the law. Simon never dreamt that catching a thief would be a bittersweet event, but it was. He also learned that life was not black and white as he once thought. It was gray.
Lord of Night is a historical fiction romance, that’s filled with compassion, forgiveness, and intrigue. If you enjoy a well-written romantic tale, you are going to love Lord of Night.
