Another successful book by Erica Ridley. She never fails to please. This book was a quick, enjoyable and easy read: enough to satisfy anyone’s appetite for a tale of regency romance.

Pretty typical romance, not too bad, though it was quite slow and it wasn't where I was particularly inspired by the characters to continue reading to find out what happens.

A lovely read with two very different characters but so good together.

I enjoyed this book, with all the ups and downs coming from a family in the high society and the demands that come along with that. The fact that our heroine is always helping everyone, but also stands for what she wants is a great point from me as i got tired of the damsels in distress in need of saving all the time.
Thad is a gentleman, a romantic at the core and so much a swoon-worthy hero that everyone will love him. He's on a hunt for a wife but finds a woman that he'll fall in love head over heels with her.

Overall is a good story, great writing that will keep you wanting more and will definitely recommend this book to my friends.

“One Night of Passion,” book 3 of the Wicked Dukes Series by Erica Ridley and Darcy Burke finds Thaddeus Middleton, a gentleman who is just a “Mister and no title,” a mantra which will be repeated several times in the book. 

Having a “Mister” as a hero is refreshing and quite frankly, I like it. It’s because Regency romances usually revolves around a titled gentleman. Yet, with thousands of books printed in this genre, one wonders how many there in the peerage are.

Moving on… 

Thaddeus Middleton is a likeable fellow. He is not poor, but he is not rich either. In today’s society, he would be one of the trust fund kids but that trust would not be so large that he could live extravagantly. 

Enter Priscilla Weatherby whose family is rich that her trust was a fortune. Problem is that she could not inherit if she got married because that trust was not her dowry. And she needed that money so that she could go on her adventure, a dream she had since she was a child.

Thaddeus wants to fall in love and be loved because of himself, not because of money. Priscilla did not want to fall in love because she wanted to be free of the constraints of London’s polite society. 

But, fall in love they did. So, now the two were at a crossroads – consummate their love or say goodbye forever. 

Another sweet and easy read from Erica Ridley, “One Night of Passion” delves not only in romantic love but also familial love. It is also about loving oneself enough to find true love or loving oneself to distraction that the person had become self-centered that they forget everyone around them. 

 Short of calling the story a fable, if you read between the line, “One Night of Passion” also teaches a lesson. The book is Rated T for Teens.

I absolutely loved this book. This series, written by Erica Ridley and Darcy Burke is wonderful.
Many of us have dreams or wishes. We develop these, often, in our youth. When your life leads you one way and your dreams lead you another way. Which way would you choose? 
Erica Ridley uses this premise with the characters in the book.
Priscilla Weatherby has a plan, and that plan is to remain unattached.
Thaddeus Middleton wants to get married. He falls in love with Pricilla Weatherby, 
Can Thaddeus overcome Pricilla's plan, or will he learn to let her go?

Book three in the Wicked Dukes Club series a well written story that I was not putting down until I had finished reading. Miss Priscilla Weatherby and Thaddeus Middleton will have so much to go through before they get their happy ending I did find myself smiling at some of the things in the book. I received an Arc copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.

Mister Thaddeus Middleton, not a peer just a mister but he did not mind it. He was a sweet, kind and friendly man who just wanted love for himself. Now he had to find the other half, someone he could love.
Miss Priscilla Weatherby, was not looking for love or any of the other things young girls so enjoy. She wanted the inheritance that her father had set up for her. She could take that money and go find her father and grandfather. They were off adventuring and had been for years.
A delightful and kind of sad tale, Priscilla was lonely and felt unloved. She lived with her grandmother, who was bitter and old because her husband had gone adventuring and the last time she had seen him was fourteen years ago. I thought this was very well written and I enjoy it. There were a few twists but it kept the story interesting and maintained your attention. It has a few questionable spots in the book so you don't want young people to read it. But for everyone else, it is a great read. The characters were warm and lifelike and seemed to grow throughout the novel.

This story is part of an ongoing series, but stands well alone. Our H, Thaddeus has decided to seek a wife, but he wants someone who will truly love HIM, not his wealth. He falls madly in love with Priscilla, but she wants nothing to do with marriage. She is biding her time until she comes to her majority and can gain access to the funds her father set aside for her dowry, at which time she will seek out her father and grandfather as they adventure throughout the world. It’s been her goal throughout her life to join them in their adventures, and she has no intention of falling in love and marrying anyone. 
Needless to say, they do fall in love, but she wants to pursue her dreams. Then her father returns, what will she do? 
I received a free arc in exchange for an honest review.

Priscilla is a young women looking for independence and adventure; Thaddeus is a cautious planner who wants a love match and has been saving since he was a child to be able provide a warm cosy home for his future family. I love how they spark off each other at first meeting and enjoyed their story.

Ms Ridley has done it again.... This book is a lively romp full of lovable characters (hello Koffi & Wednesday!), an intriguing plot and a very satisfying character development and ending. Who doesn't love an Erica Ridley book??

I loved the adventure this book took me on! A surprise twist of fate that could not have been any better for the ending. My heart is soaring after reading this! The soirées doesn’t get any better. Book provided by NetGalley.

The men in the family were certainly distant and rather awful! Grandma was not endearing either.  Our main character dreams of following in the footsteps of her dad and grandfather.  Then she meets Thad. What if she gives up her dreams for a relationship?  I thought this was a good story with a nice ending.

The third book in the Wicked Dukes Club series.  It is well written, as Erica Ridley's stories are.  I found this story harder to stay interested in.  The characters are well developed, even though they are a little annoying. He believes he'll find true love, and she doesn't believe a man can be trusted.  The support characters/animals definitely make the story interesting and a great diversion.

One Night of Passion ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️by Erica Ridley

I am a big fan of Ms Ridley’s because she is my go to author for fun. This book is a quick read that draws you in and keeps you till the end.  

I just loved the romantic Thaddeus Middleton and his mission to hunt for a wife. Miss Weatherby is an independent woman. Not in the least bit interested in marriage. Ms Ridley meshes them into a love match as only she can do. An enjoyable read..

It was a pleasant read, but the "night of passion" and the ending do not fit the season or the reservations shown by the characters during the story.

Quick yet highly entertaining, emotional, heartwarming and engaging journey filled with witty dialogue, intriguing charters and a passion that will not be ignored..... was a great read from beginning to end and I really enjoyed the adventure.

My first Erica Ridley read, but probably not my last. Really quick read and, overall, I enjoyed it. I just didn't realize this was part of a series.
