Review: Lord of Temptation (Rogues to Riches #4) by Erica Ridley


Print Length:  pages
Publisher: Webmotion (March 30, 2018)

From Goodreads.com: Be careful what you wish for...

When Lord Hawkridge inherits a penniless marquessate, he must abandon his courtship of the lowborn girl he loves. Years later, she rises from commoner to textiles heiress. Hawk has never banished her from his heart. Here's their chance to share his home! But how can he convince a woman whose trust he destroyed that he desires her far more than her money?

Faith Digby's chaotic world is too full to bother with men. She controls half a boarding school, one life-endangering secret, and two recently gentrified parents. There's no time for the old flame roaring back into her life. Not when admitting she still loves him would imperil everything and everyone she holds dear...

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

Let me begin this review the same way I have began many others. Although this is book number 4 in an established series, you do not have to have read the other novels in order to enjoy this one. Yes, characters from the prior novels do make an appearance in this novel, however there is enough background information given that even if I had not read the other novels I would have had no trouble understanding this one. 

I enjoyed this second chance romance, even if I did on more than one occasion wish I could physically throttle Hawk and Faith. They each had their own reasoning for their behaviors (both past and present), but I felt like Hawk especially was quick to anger and hurl unfair accusations even though a blind man could have seen that Faith essentially did the only thing she could have at that point. I wish we would have seen more of Faith winning over Hawk's mother as well as she (the dowager) seemed to go from one extreme to the other and while it was explained what had happened, I would have liked to actually "see" the interaction between the two women. There are a few other things I would have liked to experience with these characters as well, but on the whole I think this is a great addition to the series and will appeal to those who enjoy historical romances. I will definitely read more from this author!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
