Lord of Vice (Rogues to Riches #6) by Erica Ridley
Synopsis: Appearances can be deceiving…
Vice merchant Maxwell Gideon is wickedly handsome, sinfully arrogant, and devilishly ruthless. Rumor has it, his gaming hell has the power to steal souls and grant miracles. Truth is, Max only owns half of The Cloven Hoof. He’d buy out his silent partner if he knew the man’s identity. But it’s hard to focus on business matters when a fallen angel tumbles right into one’s lap…
Miss Bryony Grenville has a well-earned reputation as an unrepentant hoyden. But even the gossipiest of the pinch-faced matrons ruling High Society could never imagine the daughter of a baronet secretly financing the ton’s most infamous gambling parlor. Its maddening, sexy proprietor doesn’t suspect a thing… and two can play at temptation!
In the Rogues to Riches historical romance series by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Erica Ridley, Cinderella stories aren’t just for princesses… Sigh-worthy Regency rogues sweep strong-willed young ladies into whirlwind romance with rollicking adventure.
Review: This story was so great. I loved the characters and the story. Bryony and Maxwell are great characters that you can’t help but love and enjoy following their story. Byrony is such an interesting female lead character, I loved watching her win over Maxwell and how she handled everything. The plot is entertaining and fast paced, there are no slow parts, and the conflict is captivating, especially when he finds out she is his landlady and he sets out to get her to sell the deed to him. I enjoyed this one very much. I have not read anything by Erica Ridley before, but I definitely need to check her out more. Here characters are not typical Regency characters, especially her female characters, and that was refreshing.
