#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.

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.

Thank you, WebMotion and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!
