Publisher's Summary

Be careful what you wish for....

When Lord Hawkridge inherits a penniless marquessate, he must abandon his courtship of the lowborn girl he loves. Years later, she rises from commoner to textiles heiress. Hawk has never banished her from his heart. Here's their chance to share his home! But how can he convince a woman whose trust he destroyed that he desires her far more than her money?  

Faith Digby's chaotic world is too full to bother with men. She controls half a boarding school, one life-endangering secret, and two recently gentrified parents. There's no time for the old flame roaring back into her life. Not when admitting she still loves him would imperil everything and everyone she holds dear....  

In the Rogues to Riches historical romance series by USA Today and New York Times best-selling author Erica Ridley, Cinderella stories aren’t just for princesses.... Sigh-worthy Regency rogues sweep strong-willed young ladies into whirlwind romance with rollicking adventure.

Not fun; too many thoughts going in circles

The vocal performance was solid, and the narrator was very adept at both male and female voices. However, the narrator could only do so much with this dreary, overly angsty story. This is a Regency romance that is both a second chance love story and a secret baby story. I often enjoy those two tropes, but this one was not entertaining for me. I struggled to finish it.

Compared to other books by Erica Ridley, this one was a lot less fun. The hero and heroine's thoughts were very repetitive. The hero, Lord Hawkridge, dwelled on his financial problems and his guilt for jilting Miss Faith Digby 10 years ago. Faith's thoughts dwelled on her secret child and keeping everyone thinking that the child is her niece. The theme of the importance of family was nice, but most of the audiobook was rather depressing and frustrating.

Also, I thought that the relationship development move to slowly and there were not enough love scenes. Instead of this "Lord of Temptation", I recommend "Lord of Vice" in the same series.

ugghhhh

The narrator made this story bearable, otherwise I'd of dropped it after chapter 5. The characters are tedious and inordinately stubborn for the sake of being stubborn. Over 30 chapters when the author could have gotten to the point in 18.

Another winner from Erica Ridley

I truly enjoyed the next installment in the Lords series. Seeing Lord Hawkridge and Faith Digby find love again, despite the odds of class differences, money trouble, and other obstacles I will not spoil here. Also loved seeing familiar characters and how they are growing as well. Now I’ll patiently (sort of) await the next installment!
