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.
Lord of Vice by Erica Ridley (Rogues to Riches, #6)
Another feisty "Erica Ridley created" lady far ahead of her time has become the silent and anonymous part owner of London’s infamous gambling establishment, The Cloven Hoof. Bryony Grenville is far more intelligent and has more business savvy than many of the wealthiest men of the TON. Still, tongues would wag if her secret ever got out.
Maxwell Gideon peddles vice and while not accepted in proper circles he has come a long way from the docks of London and now he wants to buy out his mysterious silent partner, if only he could find him. Little does he know, the intruder he found in his office late one night could be just the “man” he is looking for. He wasn’t a man at all, but a beautiful and daring young woman with a head for business and a firm hold on his heart.
How can Bryony keep the handsome devil in her arms when he discovers the truth?
Holy chemistry! Erica Ridley is back with one of her best historical romances yet! Humor, heat, heartbreak and other swoon-worthy affairs of the heart abound as the LORD OF VICE brings Ye Ole London back to life!
