Oh a masquerade ball REVIEW... Lord of Pleasure by Erica Ridley

Sportochick's Musings ~ I have decided I want to go to a mask ball just like the one Camellia did because the author did such a great job of keeping it exciting and intriguing for the reader.

In the Rogues to Riches historical romance series, Cinderella stories aren’t just for princesses… Sigh-worthy Regency rogues sweep strong-willed young ladies into whirlwind romance with rollicking adventure.

Nondescript “good girl” Miss Camellia Grenville only ever opens her mouth when forced to sing at her family’s musicales. That is, until the night she infiltrates the ton’s most scandalous masquerade ball on behalf of her sister, and finds herself in the arms—and the bed—of the one man she’d sworn to hate.

Irresistibly arrogant and unapologetically sensuous, infamous rake Lord Wainwright always gets his way. When he accepts a wager to turn his rakish image respectable in just forty days, he never anticipates falling for an anonymous masked lover...or that discovering her identity would destroy them both


I love the first chapter that enlightens the reader to Lord Wainwright 's character. I found it highly amusing, his discomfort at all the caricatures of him and his ummm... activities. It was the perfect beginning to this distinct book which also introduces his friends, Lord Hawkridge and Gideon and sets up the premise to this story where Michael wagers to change his image in 40 days.

Camellia has my complete compassion regarding her feelings towards her fathers decision on her future life and husband. How she reacts to the news and what she does next makes this a very eventful story.

For secondary characters her sister Dahlia is very forward for her time and she adds the needed spark to this story by forcing Camellia out to the masquerade ball because their sister Bryony can't go. Don't you just love those sisters who push you into trouble? For your own good or so they say. Now Bryony really is the wild one in my opinion and I can't wait to see more books to this series with both of these sisters. 

I have decided I want to go to a mask ball just like the one Camellia did because the author did such a great job of keeping it exciting and intriguing for the reader. How she unfolds the story between Camellia and Michael Rutland, Earl of Wainwright is priceless.

I recommend this book to readers who are looking for an out of the ordinary read and give it 3.5 stars.


Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
