#Lord of Vice by Erica Ridley–Review-5 stars-#NetGalley

Lord of Vice:>850.jpgNew From Erica Ridley- Lord of Vice- Out Now!

 

 

Lord of Vice is a well-written and captivating historical fiction romance.

Maxwell Gideon was the founder of a successful gaming club, The Cloven Hoof. He was also known as the Lord of Vice. And, although, Max was not of noble birth, titled and non-titled gentleman, alike, sought entrance to his establishment. Max enjoyed turning away many of the esteemed nobility who had denied him access to their clubs.

Max wanted to expand the establishment, but to do so, he needed to own the deed to the Cloven Hoof. Unfortunately, his secret and silent partner was the one who held that precious document. Max has given several, more-than-fair offers to buy the business, through their liaison, Heath Grenville. But Max’s silent partner did not agree to any of them. Max wasn’t seeking the deed, to boost his ego; he had specific plans, that he wanted to implement. And to do that, he needed to own the business. He also wanted to prove to Polite Society, that they’d been wrong, about him and his family. 

Max didn’t know that the woman who intrigued him to the point of distraction was the secret partner who had been refusing his proposals. Bryony Grenville, the holder of the deed to The Cloven Hoof, was falling in love with Max Gideon. She was afraid, however, that once he found out who she was, their growing friendship, would die, and her heart would break. 

I loved the characters, Bryony and Max. They were both intelligent, opinionated, and kind. I found their witty banter humorous, and their relationship touching. If you enjoy regency romance, you’ll love, Lord of Vice.

Thank you, WebMotion Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Kerrigan Byrne’s Newest Release.

A Compelling Romance & An Intriguing Mystery!

Imogen Pritchard’s life changed drastically after her father died. He left his family desolate. Imogen, much to her dismay was forced to work at the Bare Kitten as a server to pay off her father’s debt. She also worked at St. Margaret’s Hospital as a nurse to support her younger sister and ailing mother.

Collin Talmage, the new Duke of Trewyth, entered the Bare Kitten to drown his sorrow in alcohol. He was intrigued with Imogen, aka, Ginny. He convinced, the owner, to sell her to him for the night. What happened during that night surprised both Ginny and Collin. Ginny’s memories of Collin’s tenderness comforted her during many lonely nights. And, Ginny’s loving memory gave Collin a place to retreat to while being tortured in a Turk prison.

A couple of years later, fate brought Collin and Imogen together again, only this time, they were two very different people. Collin was an angry, bitter man, and Imogen, a widowed Countess. Unfortunately for Imogen, her home was next-door to The Duke of Trewyth. She lived in fear of being recognized by him, as the Ginny; he once spent a night with. If Imogen’s carefully concealed past were to be exposed, it would ruin not only her but her family also. Although Collin thought Imogen to be a foolish and annoying neighbor, he found himself protective of her, especially when women resembling Imogen were being murdered all around her. Collin was determined to find out who exactly this beautiful neighbor of his was.

This is the fourth book in the Victorian Rebels series. Imogen is a lovable character, strong and caring. Collin was a more difficult character to like because of his cruel, angry outbursts. The Duke is a well-written and captivating romantic tale as well as an intriguing mystery.

Thank you, St. Martin’s Press, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

The Trouble With Dukes by Grace Burrowes

Newest Release by Grace Burrowes

Don’t Miss it!

The Trouble with Dukes is an engaging and entertaining historical fiction romance.
Megan felt bullied by Sir Fletcher. He was blackmailing her, saying that there would be consequences if she refused to marry him. He was just about to drop and break her eye glasses, when Colonel MacHugh, the new Duke of Murdoch, came to her rescue.

Hamish MacHugh wasn’t looking forward to his newly acquired responsibilities as the Duke of Murdoch. He was especially agonizing over the duty of escorting his sisters to the balls during the London Season. Hamish didn’t have the slightest idea of what the proper rules of etiquette in polite society were. Megan Windham, however, saved him from embarrassment. She agreed to teach him the fine art of small talk, and how to waltz.

The more time Megan spent with Hamish, the more attractive, she found him. She was aware of his troubled past and his ruthless acts in war. Megan knew that people referred to him as the Duke of Murder, a barbarian with a violent and unstable temper. But, to her, the Duke was an honest and true gentleman, and Megan was quickly falling in love with him. Hamish was homesick for Scotland but didn’t want to leave London, without the woman he loved. He would do anything for Megan, even murder.

The author immerses the reader deep into the world of aristocrats, Dukes, Earls, Lords, and their wives. The Trouble With Dukes is a well-written and captivating story.

Many thanks to the publisher, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
