Fun Read!
Let It Snow by Erica Ridley (2013-12-06) - Erica Ridley

Let It Snow by Erica Ridley is a fairly short read, a great choice for those with limited time for reading.  Ms Ridley has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are loveable.  Lance and Marigold's story is hard to describe, I'd say part fairy tale, part time travel but all a fun and enjoyable read.  There's plenty of action, drama and sizzle to keep readers turning the pages.  I enjoyed this short book and look forward to my next book by Erica Ridley.  Let It Snow is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from instafreebie.

Book Review For: 'Lord of Night' by Erica Ridley
Lord of Night (Rogues to Riches Book 3) (Volume 3) - Erica Ridley

'Lord of Night' by Erica Ridley is book Three in the "Rogues to Riches" series. This is the story of Dahlia Grenville and Simon Spaulding. I have read the other books in this series but feel this is easily a standalone book.
Simon is an Inspector with the Bow Street Runners. Simon's fellow workers call him a "Lone Wolf" Simon likes being thorough in his duties and feels he is wed to his job as his other friends are wed to their wives. Simon feels the unjust in some of the poor areas were there are no Watchman, or the Watchman doesn't stay on his post.
Dahlia is the second daughter of a good family but has taken on the task of starting a school for young girls who are in trouble. Dahlia is the headmistress also. With so many girls to save it doesn't take long for her school to fill up. One night while while finishing up she hears yet another girl in need. Dahlia goes to that girls rescue because she knows no one else will. There are not Watchman in the area and lots of time they won't help if they were. But on this night when she gets the girl free and with the bad guy chasing them...someone does show up....Simon.
Simon returns to the school to let Dahlia know he caught the man. Simon is taken back by the mystery that is Dahlia...not to mention his attraction to her.
Dahlia too is surprised that Simon even return much less that she finds him interesting.
Simon tries to stick to his lone ways but he can't fight the feelings he is growing for Dahlia .
But Dahlia has allot going on and doing questionable things to keep her school going.
This was a joy to read and I can't wait for the next book by Ms. Ridley.

Short Historical Romance
Romancing the Rogue - Erica Ridley

Romancing The Rogue is another fantastic read by Erica Ridley.  This is a fairly short read, a great choice for historical romance fans with limited time for reading.  Ms Ridley has delivered a well-written book and loaded it with amazing, lovable characters.  Rebecca and Daniel's story is full of drama, nuggets of humor and a little spice.  I enjoyed reading Romancing The Rogue and look forward to my next book by Erica Ridley.  Romancing The Rogue is book 2 in the Gothic Historical Romance Series but can be read as a standalone.

This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read an InstaFreebie copy of this book.

Review 4/5 stars: Lord of Chance (Rogues to Riches, #1) by Erica Ridley
Lord of Chance (Rogues to Riches Book 1) - Erica Ridley

This is sort of a re-release since it first appeared in the Scandal’s Daughters Anthology, but fret not as this “is an expanded ‘Author Edition.’"

Charming and complex characters, well-told story, and not your usual rags to riches plot make this a delightful and engaging story. Anthony was a gambler down on his luck and up to his neck in debt when he met Charlotte. They were both fleeing from a dark past at the same time that they were looking for a different, brighter future. Unfortunately a play of words in a foreign place bound them together into marriage and their hopes at a brighter future just tumbled down.

The romance itself was emotive and believable. They grew to care for each other over a feasible amount of time to the point of willing to sacrifice their love for the sake of each other’s happiness. If anything, the only thing I didn’t find plausible is that they spent a lot of time together, alone, in a bedchamber, and there was no mention of any kind of sexual frustration. There were plenty of good reasons why the deed wasn’t done but I would have thought some tension would have been more palpable. Other than that, I loved their relationship because more than anything they were friends and they supported each other, even when they could become pariahs in society.

The settings were rich in detail and the story had that fluidity that I love because it keeps me engrossed in the story. I also loved that it dealt with deep themes such as addiction and prejudice yet it kept a light side and didn’t turn into a sob-inducing story. I do believe addiction is a tough subject and even harder to overcome however I’ve also witnessed that given the right circumstances and for the right reasons a person can actually beat it. That’s one of the reason I don’t think Anthony’s recovery was that far-fetched and it could very much have happened quickly indeed.

Twists and turns and the fact the story definitely did not have the ending I expected make this a most delightful and entertaining read and I definitely recommend it to those looking for a well-told, unique, romantic story.

*** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***
