From a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author:
Notorious whip Giles Langford is surprised to learn his blacksmith is a girl, shocked to realize she’s the out-of-his-league sister of a duke, and horrified to discover he’s fallen in love with the impossible-to-tame woman anyway. With no money and no title, Giles has nothing to offer but his heart...
Felicity Sutton knows poverty firsthand, and she’s never going back. She might miss the smithy, but not the relentless desperation of no home and an empty belly. Of course she’ll accept the stability of a wealthy ton suitor. As for the penniless daredevil she loves, well... At least they’ll have one night to remember.
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...
One Night for Seduction
One Night of Surrender
One Night of Passion

Enjoy the brand new series brought to you by USA Today bestselling author Darcy Burke and New York Times bestselling author Erica Ridley!
One Night To Remember is book 5 in the Wicked Dukes Club Regency Romance series by Erica Ridley. This book was charming. Giles Langford is called the Curricle King because he is a notorious whip and coach smith. He has never lost a race and has a thriving business fixing carriages in his black smith shop. Lady Felicity Sutton has a hidden talent of fixing her brother the Duke of Colehaven’s curricle. When the Duke is challenged to a race, he turns to Langford to fix up his curricle to win it but only if Langford agrees to let Lady Felicity assist him. Once together sparks fly. But Lady Felicity has her own agenda - one that can not include Giles Langford.
“To her consternation, Felicity was no longer mentally cataloguing the size and width of the wheels or the length of the splinter bar and breeching dee, but staring after Giles Langford. The man looked like a god of chariots. He had no prayer of blending with high society, nor any desire to try. He didn’t need to. He was precisely who and what he appeared to be.” I enjoyed this book. Of course it is highly unlikely that a Duke’s sister would wed a blacksmith. But historical romance is for dreaming not for reality. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I was gifted a copy of this book.
Langford and the Stable Lass
One Night to Remember, the fifth story about the unforgettable men of The Wicked Duke tavern, is fast-paced, exciting, and entertaining. Giles Langford, the most sought after carriage mechanic and probably the best racer in London, and Lady Felicity Sutton, the sister of the Duke of Colehaven, meet when the Duke insists that they work together to make sure his curricle is ready for an upcoming race. Felicity is thrilled. Giles is not so happy about the arrangement, but what the Duke wants, the Duke gets. Felicity and her brother grew up in a smithy, and it doesn’t take long for Giles to realize she is a better mechanic than most. Giles and Felicity are fun to watch. As they work together, they come to admire each other. They have much in common. Both are smart and industrious, kind and caring. They agree on the value of helping others, especially children. These two are made for each other if they could just get past a few obstacles. They might be falling in love, but nothing can come of it. Cole is the only family Felicity has ever known, and she wants to please him and make him proud. He wants her to make a “good” match. She wants to establish a charity for children who are growing up in the same conditions she and her brother did. That means she must marry a peer, the higher ranking the better, doesn’t it? The race and the romance – how does everything work out? One Night to Remember is another winner in this series. Don’t miss it.
