The Duke’s Bride – Erica Ridley

“T his way, if you please.” Jack Skeffington—genteel landowner, eligible widower, and exhausted father of indefatigable twins—led his business associate through a hidden panel behind his office escritoire to a secret room lined with shelves of mementos from various exploits of days long past. Redmire gave a knowing smile. “Walls have ears, do they?” At […]

The Duke’s Embrace – Erica Ridley

Miss Eve Shelling plastered herself between the smothering red damask of the parlor curtains and the freezing glass panes of the front windows.

Romancing the Rogue – Erica Ridley

A gust of cold ocean wind from the black depths of the horizon swept across the encroaching night.

One Night of Passion – Erica Ridley

Thaddeus Middleton, plain old “mister” in an endless line of plain old misters, considered himself the luckiest of men. “The first set?” gushed a wide-eyed debutante, gripping her blank dance card in trembling fingers. “Truly?” “I cannot conceive of a greater start to the evening,” Thad assured her and signed his name with a flourish. […]

The […]

Once Upon a Duke – Erica Ridley

Wnter enveloped the frost-tipped forest in its deathly grip as a lone black carriage made its determined way up the side of the frozen mountain.

Never Say Duke – Erica Ridley

Theodore O’Hanlon, Major Viscount Ormondton, grimaced against the relentless pain. It pulsed through his head, his knee, his side. He promised himself the torture would soon end. With a shaking finger, he cracked the curtains and allowed himself a brief glimpse outside the carriage. Evergreens. Blinding sun on endless snow. A winding, narrow path up […]

Lord of Vice – Erica Ridley

Miss Bryony Grenville was seated on the floor polishing a worn pair of lad’s boots when the door to her private drawing room flew open. In a flash, she hid the boots and the polish behind her back—then scowled up at her grinning elder brother. “Heath, you beast.” She placed the boots back before her. […]

Lord of Temptation – Erica Ridley

In a gambling hell like the Cloven Hoof, most gentlemen were beggared by the cut of the cards or a roll of the dice.

Lord of Pleasure – Erica Ridley

Which apparently also included Lord Wainwright’s best friends. So as to […]

Lord of Night – Erica Ridley

Miss Dahlia Grenville hunched in the shadowed entryway of the St. Giles School for Girls. Her once-pristine white silk gloves were marred with splinters from the well-worn broom in her hands. Ash from this evening’s hearth made their fineness almost undetectable. The old abbey that housed the boarding school had also once been very fine. […]

Lord of Chance – Erica Ridley

Mr. Anthony Fairfax might not be the lord of a manor, but he was king of the gaming hells. Or had been. Anthony glanced at his pocket watch. He should be resuming his throne at any moment. His luck was already turning back around, right here in a humble inn on the Scottish border. And […]

Kiss of a Duke – Erica Ridley

“To the Duke!” yelled a half-sotted voice in the middle of the packed ballroom. “To Penelope Mitchell!” the crowd shouted back, raising their goblets of spiced wine in unison.
