From a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author:
Lifelong romantic Thaddeus Middleton is on the hunt for a wife. He hopes to find a woman more attracted to him than to money. Instead, he finds himself drawn to a spitfire who isn’t interested in him at all! At least, that’s what she says when she’s not kissing him beneath the stars...
Miss Priscilla Weatherby will inherit a fortune… provided she remains unwed and scandal-free. Easy enough, until she meets a man more dangerous than haughty lords and heartless rakes. Thad is a sweet, sexy delight, whose passionate embrace will ruin everything—including her! She’ll sacrifice anything for independence. Even love…
Meet the unforgettable men of London's most notorious tavern, The Wicked Duke. Seductively handsome, with charm and wit to spare, one night with these rakes and rogues will never be enough!

Witty, charmaing and fun read!
I am really enjoying the Wicked Dukes Club series by Darcy Burke and Erica Ridley. In One Night of Passion by Erica Ridley we get the story of Thaddeus Middleton and Priscilla Weatherby. Thaddeus wants a wife, but one who wants him for him, not for who he is or what he has. Priscilla just wants to be free and independent to do her own thing.
When they meet, Thaddaeus knows she is who he wants and needs. But she has different plans, even if she has to ignore what she desires. I just loved how Thaddaeus was determined and slowly brings down Priscilla’s walls. But can she give up what she always wanted for love? This story was so sweet and fun to read. It was full of witty banter and great chemistry.
4.5-stars. Happy reading.
heart pounding romance
One Night of Passion is the 3rd book in the new Wicked Dukes Club series, a joint project produced by Erica Ridley and Darcy Burke. One Night of Passion is Ridley’s work. It is an amazing story with layer upon layer of complexity. Ridley is a master at giving her characters depth and believability. She has outdone herself with this story. I loved the hero in this Thaddeus Middleton - sweet, cheerful, fun and kind hearted. “As if he felt the whisper of her breath upon his skin, Mr. Middleton abruptly lifted his head and turned in her direction. His gaze locked with hers, too far away to see the golden flecks in his dark brown eyes, but hot enough to warm her to her toes all the same.” I don’t know if Ridley is a psychiatrist as well as an author..but her insight into people and their reactions to their environment is spot on. Her stories peel back the human condition layer by layer - everyone’s longing to be loved and belong. Amazing story. I was gifted a copy of this book.
Love, adventure, or Both?
Cole and Val became friends and earned the name the Wicked Dukes (they really are Dukes) at Oxford. The friends now own Wicked Dukes, the most notorious tavern in London. The Dukes have met and made many friends in their welcoming and popular club. Thaddeus Middleton is one of those friends. One Night of Passion by Erica Ridley is the third book in the Wicked Dukes Club series.
Thaddeus Middleton is a regular at the Wicked Dukes Club. He enjoys coming to the club, has made many friends, and even found a wonderful husband for his cousin Diana. Thaddeus is a generally happy person, but is a bit lonely. He wants to marry, but he wants to marry for love. He looks in all the right places, but does not find the woman who gives him the spark he’s looking for…until, he does. Miss Priscilla Weatherby does not want to fall in love, marry, or find love. She wants to make it to her twenty-fifth birthday, inherit, and join her father in world-wide adventures. She has high hopes, a grandmother she loves, and a parrot. She will let nothing stand in the way of the future she has planned…or, will she?
This is a sweet happy story with a dose of reality thrown into the romance. Thad is happy, sweet, dances with wallflowers, and wants to be loved for himself, not money. Priscilla is a dreamer. She is sweet, beautiful, and caring. The story is an easy read with a bit of adventure (even if most of it is books and dreams), some frustration for the hero, and disappointment for the heroine. This is a well-written easy to read tale that keeps the reader’s attention and keeps you hoping that Thad and Priscilla will take Grandmama’s advice. I really enjoyed this one and recommend it. Who will be the next handsome, charming, sigh-worthy patron of London’s most notorious tavern? I can’t wait to see.
