About Erica Ridley

Erica Ridley learned to read when she was three, which was about the same time she decided to be a writer when she grew up. Now, she's a USA Today best-selling author of historical romance novels.

Her latest series, The Dukes of War, features roguish peers and dashing war heroes who return from battle only to be thrust into the splendor and madness of Regency England.

When not reading or writing romances, Erica can be found riding camels in Africa, zip-lining through rainforests in Costa Rica, or getting hopelessly lost in the middle of Budapest.

5 stars
Fun blend of Regency romance and a spooky gothic castle. Perfect for Halloween.

This is a boxed set of 3 novellas, and it is part of a series of four boxed sets released at same time. For all of these boxed sets, the backstory is the same: a group of British nobility descend on a haunted castle on the shore of Cornwall to hear the reading of a will and perhaps find some husbands and wives. Then love and supernatural stuff ensue. Each of the individual novellas explores what is happening to 2 or 4 of these people.

I love how the authors of the different stories refer to characters from the other stories. For example, Deb Marlowe's story in the "Bedeviled" book refers to Lady Cassandra in Ava Stone's story in this book. Even if you were only interested in only one of these 3 authors, I recommend reading the whole boxed set because it leads to a more enriching and fun experience. I got the book primarily to read Ava Stone's novella, but I was also extremely pleased with Erica Ridley's story. Now I will separately review the two novellas that I have read so far.

1.) "Romancing the Rogue" by Erica Ridley: 5 stars! Utterly charming! Quirky and original. I loved Miss Rebecca and I loved this story; it was a perfect Halloween read.

2.) "Once Upon a Moonlit Path" by Ava Stone: Cute story. The spookiness of the castle was well described. The dog Oscar is adorable. However, I did not like how Lord St. Giles interacted with Lady Cassandra in the beginning. He seemed like he was just lustful and was not concerned with her well-being. That first impression stuck with me, so I never really liked the guy.

I was given a free ARC copy by Ava Stone through a review club, and I voluntarily reviewed it. All opinions are my own, and I was not paid for my review.
