When the new earl inherits, poor relation Miss Rebecca Bond must wed immediately or be out on her ear. The only man she’s ever loved is summoned to hear the will—but he already rejected her so soundly that they haven’t spoken in years. Yet who better than a rakish Viscount to teach her how to snare a gentleman who appreciates her charms?
Daniel Goodenham, Lord North-Barrows, regrets nothing more than the lost friendship with the one woman who treated him like a man, not a title. Fate has given him the perfect pretext to win her forgiveness—even if it means having to match make her to someone else. But now that she’s back in his life, he’ll do anything to convince her to choose him instead…
This story first appeared in the Vexed anthology.
I loved this short novella by Erica Ridley. I could not put it down once I started reading and even read it twice in the same day.
The characters are well developed and engaging in spite of the relatively short length of the book.
Rebecca has a past with Daniel and when the new earl, her uncle, decides to give her only three months to find herself a husband, she decides to call on her old friend to help her learn what she needs to know to attract a suitable suitor.
Since the last time they saw each other he had given her the cut direct in front of the ton she never dreams that the right man could be him.
Will Rebecca and Daniel find their Happily Ever After as a couple or will he help her find a suitable match that is not himself?
I gave this sweetly written novella 4.5 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2 of 5 flames. There is no actual sexual encounters but the underlying sensuality gives it an undeniable heat.
I received a complimentary ARC of this title from the publisher through NetGalley. I was invited by the publicist to read this book and I am reviewing it voluntarily. This in no way affected my opinion of this book.
The Pirate’s Tempting Stowaway
Dukes of War Book 6
by Erica Ridley
Digital List Price: $2.99
Enjoy another witty, emotional book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Erica Ridley’s fan-favorite Dukes of War regency romance series!
Captain Blackheart leads a simple life of roving the seas, wenching and treasure-hunting. He steers clear of romantic entanglements that could tie him to land. He shouldn’t have any trouble keeping his hands off the gently-bred lady he’s commissioned to abduct — except his cargo turns out to be feisty and passionate! She’d be a prize worth treasuring, if having her aboard didn’t jeopardize everything…
Clara Halton thought the worst loss she could suffer was to be stripped of her family, stricken with consumption, and left to die alone. Then she meets Blackheart. Their attraction is ruinous…and irresistible. When he delivers her like so much plunder, his mission is over — but hers has just begun. She’ll force him to acknowledge their connection, even if she must storm his ship to do it!

HIS MOTHER INSISTS HE NEEDS A WIFE.
Fergus McTaggart, land steward of Aldmist Fell, has no time for wife hunting. Any day his employer’s long lost sisters will be arriving at the Scottish castle for a long overdue reunion, and Fergus is determined to make their stay memorable, especially for the youngest sister, who has him quite wrapped around her finger. But so far, all anyone is likely to recall are the loud rows between him and Edith Gallagher, his employer’s paid companion. A woman has never bested him, but he might have met his match in the cheeky Sassenach.
SHE THINKS HE NEEDS A GOOD KNOCK ON THE HEAD.
Edith has been charged with watching over her employer’s youngest sister and keeping her safe while the family winters at the remote estate, but a stubborn Scottish oaf and his harebrained ideas are making her job more nerve-wracking than it should be. After many heated quarrels over what is in the girl’s best interests, she and Mr. McTaggart call a temporary truce for the sisters’ sakes. Soon they realize their passionate battles have been masking their desire for one another, which is rather inconvenient since they cannot agree on what that means for their future.
