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…
I read almost everything that Erica Ridley writes, and though my all-time favorite of hers is Never Say Duke, all of her stories are consistently well done. I know I can count on her for a good (sometimes great) story, and One Night of Passion fits the bill.
One Night of Passion had an interesting, well-conceived female MC. I actually loved her and understood her obsession with adventure and connecting to her relatives, and I thought that Erica Ridley delivered with her. The male MC was more... irritating? He was too nice, too sappily romantic, and though he was perfectly fine (I'm being picky), I just had a harder time with him. He talked about "the one" incessantly, and felt like a tween-age girl.
The story was sweet and a super fast read (I read it in less than a day), and it was another dependable book from Erica Ridley.
