I absolutely fell in love with this collection. The characters are well developed and it's great that we get more of the gentlemen point of view more instead of the ladies, I always wonder what the men are going through whenever I read these romances. I also liked how they introduce the future characters without giving much away, you don't really notice until the next book and get that "ah ha!" moment ? I'm so looking forward to the rest of the books and the other series.

This is a box set with the first three novels in the Rogues to Riches series. Lord of Chance Anthony is trying to look for some fortune on the gambling tables to win enough money to repay a huge debt that is going to sends him directly to prison. Charlotte has left London to try to find her father, a noble laird in Scotland. However, she finds Anthony. Lord of Pleasure Miss Camellia Grenville is always the good daughter, polite, proper and dutiful. However, when her mother informs her of the marriage agreement between her father and a respectable man but twenty years her senior, everything changes in her life. Michael, the Earl of Wainwright, better known as the “Lord of Pleasure”, is tired of being in everybody’s mouth but not for the better. He wants everybody to know the real him, not the man they think he is. Lord of Night Dahlia Grenville is a baron’s daughter who doesn’t like the society she was born in. She is dedicated to run a school for orphan girls and she teaches them the duties of different positions in a household so, when they are older, they can find a job more easily. Dahlia is always struggling to get money for the school and in desperate times, she has to take desperate measures. Simon Spaulding is a Bow Street runner and a very good one indeed. Being the bastard son of a Duke, he has always been very jealous of his half-brother. Everything that happens to him in his youth built his personality and his great love for the law. His world is divided by good and bad, black and white. Erica Ridley’s books are always well-written and very enjoyable. The characters in her books are always honorable, and her stories funny and tender. I love how the author starts to prepare the grounds for the next novel within the end of the current one. A great series worth reading.

Rogues to Riches by Erica Ridley is a box set with three total books and about 697 pages. I am a big fan of box sets. It a great way to find new authors although this box set is totally by Ms. Ridley it gives you a good taste of her writing. I would highly recommend you get this set. Yes, these books can be bought individually but its a better price to in a set. Here are the books that you will be getting: LORD OF CHANCE When Lady Luck wins him in a game of chance—and a wee mishap has them leg-shackled by dawn—have the tables finally turned in this rake's favor? LORD OF PLEASURE When a ẉallflower infiltrates the ton’s most scandalous masquerade ball, she finds herself in the arms—and the bed—of the one man she’d sworn to hate! LORD OF NIGHT He's a serious, sexy Bow Street Runner. She's secretly Robin Hood in a bonnet. Sworn enemies—until a heist gone wrong drops her straight into his arms…

A wonderful set of three full stories from the Rouges to Riches Series. From master storyteller Erica Ridley, prepare to be entertained and captivated. Her plots and characters are well written and will pull you in and not let go. Lord of Chance - This is the first book in the Rouges to Riches series and it leaves you anxious for the next book! Two souls running from different facets of their life are brought together in an unexpected way. They end up working together and in an innocent announcement become tied together unexpectedly! This is a fun read with a lot of humor and romance. You fall in love with Anthony Fairfax and Charlotte Devon who are in the end perfect for each other. The dialogue and characters are well written and hold your interest to the end. You will not be disappointed in this delightful read! Lord of Pleasure - Two people living behind masks try to live as society deems them. This was such an entertaining story that just warmed my heart. Michael, Lord Wainwright is deemed a rake to be avoided in society. Camellia Grenville is expected to be the proper submissive girl who will marry a most unappealing man and move far from her family. When the two meet at a masquerade ball where they are anonymous, a strong attraction begins to form. When they find out who each other are, can they overcome the perceptions of the public and find their true selves? A well written, fast paced and emotional read, it will grip your heart and not let go! Lord of Night - Can a Jewel thief and a Bow Street Runner ever find romance? This is an intriguing story about two people, Dahlia Grenville and Simon Spaulding , who are on different ends of the law. Dahlia runs a a home for Orphans and is in desperate need of funds to continue her calling. She resorts to desperate measures to ensure that the home stays open and she can provide for the children. Simon Spaulding is a Bow Street runner hot on the trail of a jewel thief and is determined to find the culprit. This story has a little of it all. Intrigue, mystery, humor and romance. Can the debutante and the working man come together and be happy? A story that will captivate you from the start to end. Lori

Rogues to Riches (Volume 1) By Erica Ridley Great bargain for three delightful historical romances! LORD OF CHANCE Great way to start a new series of Regency romances that will, if similar to this first book, be quite different from others of this genre. Why? Because the rogues are not your typical hero and the females are atypical, too. That said – I believe these books will definitely be worth reading. I look forward to reading the series as it is released and wonder how the author will find ways to redeem the rogues she writes about. A gambling addict running from his debts finds himself losing a large purse, his bachelor status and possibly his heart to a young woman searching for her birth-father in Scotland. Both have secret desires to be loved and accepted for more than they believe others see them to be. Both grow through their journey from first to last page. Both learn truths about themselves, their beliefs about self and others and find a place to fit in the world that they might never have found had then not met one fateful night. I liked Charlotte, her tenacity and ability to rise above the station she began in life. I found Ethan charming and applauded his ability to finally overcome the addiction that could have seen him in prison. I enjoyed reading the growing relationship between the two main characters and though some of the story might not be realistic did like the HEA ending that was assisted by an unlikely benefactor or two. (4 Stars) LORD OF PLEASURE Miss Camellia Grenville has lived a circumspect life. She has been the “good” eldest sister and never caused a stir or stepped out of bounds. When her mother calls her in to announce she has been betrothed she is underwhelmed by the man who has been chosen for her and overwhelmed by the thought of marriage to said man. With only a little while to enjoy her freedom she attends a scandalous masquerade party that may change her life forever…if that is…Lord X can figure out which Lady X she is before it is too late. With musicales, social engagements and a whole lot going on you would think true love would thrive BUT when one does not know WHO is behind the mask it makes things much less straightforward, especially when the two falling in love don’t much care for one another when not wearing their masks. This is a delightful story that explores the idea of living up to society’s and parental expectations versus figuring out what one wants for self and is willing to do to achieve personal goals. I enjoyed the journey made by Lord Wainright and Camellia and look forward to reading book three in this series when it is released. (4 Stars) LORD OF NIGHT Simon Spaulding, by-blow of a Marquess, has always had issues with the caste system of society. He is out to set right the wrongs of the world and his code of honor allows for no shades of gray. When he first meets Dahlia Grenville he is stunned. He finds himself returning to spend time with her and the girls in her boarding school as he chases The Thief of Mayfair. His hope is that bringing in this thief will provide him with a promotion none of his station has ever reached before. But, what will he do when he finds out the thief is someone much closer to his heart than he thought? This was a book that I can see rereading from time to time. The characters are interesting and multi-faceted. There is internal and external conflict to deal with for both Simon and Dahlia as they get to know one

Lord of Chance Once I started reading, I wasn't able to put it down. Charlotte and Anthony are completely charming together. The sweet flirtation and witty banter they exchange is delightful and kept me laughing from their very first encounter. I'm finding it difficult to put into words my thoughts about this book. There's a lot of story here, but because of the sweetness and laughter it all felt very light. It touches on some big, heavy topics like addiction and acceptance but it stays away from the dark places it could have gone with those. I love that we get the opportunity to revisit some of our favorite characters from the Dukes of War series, to see what's happened since we left them. I'm also trying very hard to be patient while waiting for our next Rogue. Lord of Pleasure Oh the angst! The emotional turmoil! This book shredded my heart into little bitty pieces and then put them all back together bit by bit. I love emotional drama and this book had it by the bucketful. I couldn't put it down, I so badly wanted to know how they'd discover each other's identities. Once that riddle was solved, I still couldn't stop because I needed to know how they'd answer the expectations that were forcing them apart. It nearly broke what was left of my heart. Camellia and Michael are a brilliant pairing. Thanks to the masks and the masquerade, they've been forced to be more honest with one another than anyone else in their lives. They see each other to the heart of the person inside, not society's image. I loved this book so much. I can't wait to read the next in the series. Lord of Night I've been impatiently waiting for the next title of the Rogues to Riches series to come out, and I'm so glad it's finally here. We were first introduced to Dahlia in the previous book with Cam's story. I immediately loved her impassioned, crusader spirit. Simon was more of a surprise for me. I imagine it was impossible for him not to be charmed that same vivacious personality but I wasn't sure how they would make it work with his rigid, regimented world-view. It was a joy to watch Simon open up to the world around him. I wish it hadn't taken such a hefty blow for him to understand the world between black and white but I can see that only something that shocking would have sufficient impact. I also really enjoyed seeing Dahlia be the adult in this book, especially since she came across as a little juvenile in her sister's book. I absolutely cannot wait to read the next in the series now that we've had a little teaser what's coming up. I received a complimentary copy of this book.

I am a huge fan of Erica Ridley’s books. I can always count on her stories to have creative and unique plots and to be an awesome and romantic read. She is an exceptionally talented regency romance writer. Erica is a masterful storyteller when it comes to writing regency romances. Her stories captivate and her characters are well defined, personable and multidimensional. Below is a brief overview of my thoughts on each story in this boxed set. In “Lord of Chance” the hero, Anthony Fairfax is swoon worthy, charming, caring and an all-round nice person. The heroine, Charlotte Devon is intelligent, strong willed, proud and independent. Both characters have faults and issues and it is how they surmount these problems that makes for a captivating and well written novel. Throughout the novel I was so routing for Anthony and Charlotte to find their HEA. I was totally engrossed in their story as Erica’s plot had me hooked from the first chapter and held my interest through the epilogue. There were several twists and turns I did not see coming that only enhanced her storyline. I have enjoyed reading many of her novels and “Lord of Chance” is another winner. Erica Ridley has another winner in “Lord of Pleasure” The second book in her Rogues to Riches series is an awesome read. The plot was well written and fast paced. Her characters were well developed and endearing. The hero, Lord Wainwright dubbed the Lord of Pleasure by the scandal sheets is a charming, rich, infamous rake. The heroine Camellia Grenville always plays it safe following the dictates of her family and is considered a mouse. In public she despises him and his scandalous ways. In private at a masked ball where they are anonymous they come to care for each other. How these two characters overcome the perceptions of others and how they perceive each other both privately and in public makes for a truly interesting and well written story. I was totally engrossed in Wainwright and Cam’s story as Erica’s plot had me hooked from the first chapter and kept my attention through the epilogue. There were also a number of surprises and twists that served to enhanced her storyline.. “Lord of Night,” the third book in her Rogues to Riches series is also a great read. The storyline is well written and held my interest from the first chapter to the end. The hero, Simon Spaulding is a Bow Street Inspector who is highly thought of, highly principled, a workaholic and always gets the criminal. He usually works nights hence the title Lord of Night. The heroine Dalhia Grenville is a Baron’s daughter with a social conscious and runs a school for the orphaned and abused girls. Never having enough donations to stall her creditors and feed her charges she becomes a female Robin Hood. How the commoner and debutante meet, develop a relationship and address the issues threatening to tear them apart makes for a truly captivating and well written story. I absolutely loved the concluding chapters. I highly recommend this box set to anyone who is looking to read a really good regency romance anthology. You will not be disappointed. I received an ARC of this box set in exchange for my review. It was a pleasure to give my honest opinion about the set.
