    Historical Romance

    Lord of Pleasure by Erica Ridley Rogues to Riches #2 Miss Camellia Grenville has lived a circumspect life. She has been the “good” eldest sister and never caused a stir or stepped out of bounds. When her mother calls her in to announce she has been betrothed she is underwhelmed by the man who has been chosen for her and overwhelmed by the thought of marriage to said man. With only a little while to enjoy her freedom she attends a scandalous masquerade party that may change her life forever…if that is…Lord X can figure out which Lady X she is before it is too late. With musicales, social engagements and a whole lot going on you would think true love would thrive BUT when one does not know WHO is behind the mask it makes things much less straightforward, especially when the two falling in love don’t much care for one another when not wearing their masks. This is a delightful story that explores the idea of living up to society’s and parental expectations versus figuring out what one wants for self and is willing to do to achieve personal goals. I enjoyed the journey made by Lord Wainright and Camellia and look forward to reading book three in this series when it is released. Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review.

    A Pleasure Indeed

    Where do you find the love of your life? Why at the most decadent masquerade in London, of course. When Michael and Camellia meet at the masquerade as Lord and Lady X, they like each other. Each has discovered someone to talk to and be comfortable with, a friend. Outside in real life - not so much. Camellia and her sisters do not like Lord Wainwright (his reputation, you know). Lord Wainwright has never even noticed Camellia. That’s going to change. Michael and Camellia’s story is full of soul searching and humor. The story line is simple and fun. The main characters, actually all of the characters, are loveable and real. The two younger sisters are delightful. You will love discovering if Michael wins his wager, if Camellia follows her dream, and if the Earl can convince the “mousy” Grenville girl to become his Countess. Lord of Pleasure was indeed a pleasure and another hit for Erica Ridley.

    another great book by Ridley

    Lord of Pleasure is fine romp in the ballrooms and parlors of Regency England. Combining two very different people together was an artistic stroke by Ridley. Or were they really, deep inside, so very different? I loved how well the sisters related and supported each other. Ridley developed strikingly different personalities for each of them, yet they complimented each other. I look forward to seeing what Ridley crafts for them in future books. Her development of Wainwright's morals and personality, as she allowed him to mature, was wonderful to see. Never as bad as everyone thought, he still had a long way to go to be respectable. She slowly unfolded the layers of Wainwright's personality and ambitions. She revealed the true person behind the reputation. In turn, with growing confidence, Camellia bloomed from the mousey spinster. Also the well-developed secondary characters in Lord of Pleasure added depth to the story-line. As a result, I laughed and giggled as the characters snipped at each other. Some of things Camellia and her sisters said were hilarious. Although, Lord of Pleasure, includes an intense intimate love scene, I did not find it offensive or overly descriptive. Finally, in concluding my reviews of romance novel, The Lord Of Pleasure, I found a well-developed story-line with well-developed characters. Also the pacing of the story was smooth and steady and the plotting seamless. Additionally, I found Lord of Pleasure suitable for young adults and adults. Perfect for anyone that loves a solid well-written Regency romance. In addition, I purchased this book choosing to voluntarily review the book/novel with honest reviews for romance novel, The Lord Of Pleasure.

    A five-star review on Lord of Pleasure by Erica Ri

    Miss Camellia Grenville is always the good daughter, polite, proper and dutiful. However, when her mother informs her of the marriage agreement between her father and a respectable man but twenty years her senior, everything changes in her life. Michael, the Earl of Wainwright, better known as the “Lord of Pleasure”, is tired of being in everybody’s mouth but not for the better. He wants everybody to know the real him, not the man they think he is. Well-written, well-developed, funny, tender, lovely story to enjoy from the very first word till the very last. It is always a pleasure to read Erica Ridley’s books. The characters were enjoyable, the situations laughable. Sometimes I took pity on poor Michael. Every time he encounters with the Grenville sisters, something goes wrong for him. I liked the encounter between Miss Camellia and Anthony Fairfax when verifying the first-time invitation recipients to the masquerade ball. I love how the author starts to prepare the grounds for the next novel within the end of the current one. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

    I couldn't put it down

    Oh the angst! The emotional turmoil! This book shredded my heart into little bitty pieces and then put them all back together bit by bit. I love emotional drama and this book had it by the bucketful. I couldn't put it down, I so badly wanted to know how they'd discover each other's identities. Once that riddle was solved, I still couldn't stop because I needed to know how they'd answer the expectations that were forcing them apart. It nearly broke what was left of my heart. Camellia and Michael are a brilliant pairing. Thanks to the masks and the masquerade, they've been forced to be more honest with one another than anyone else in their lives. They see each other to the heart of the person inside, not society's image. I loved this book so much. I can't wait to read the next in the series. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
