Lord of Vice by Erica Ridley
My rating: 5 out of 5 Roses
Series: Lord of Vice, Book 6
Publication Date: August 31, 2018
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 baron secretly financing the ton’s most infamous gambling parlor. Its maddening, sexy proprietor doesn’t suspect a thing… and two can play at temptation!

Oh, how I love the Grenvilles! Bryony Grenville is just as smart and entertaining as her siblings and she definitely has a mind of her own. Preferring to be an independent woman rather than married to someone she doesn’t love, Bryony has spent years investing (with the help of her “fixer” brother, Heath). When the owner of The Cloven Hoof wants to buy out her silent owner share she is determined to find out how he’s coming up with the money. A venture that teaches her more than she expected.
Maxwell Gideon, known throughout London as the Lord of Vice, is fastidious in every aspect of his life. His gaming hell caters to the rich and poor alike. A highly profitable venture that he wants to own 100%. If only he could get the silent partner to sell. Max is a man with a harden heart that a maddingly intrustive, smart, beautiful angel threatens to soften.
Thank you, Erica Ridley for another entertaining tale that had me laughing, wanting to smack characters (Max), and crying. Now that the Grenvilles have found their HEA – who’s next?
