Reviewed by PJ

The riotous Wynchester family has taken on a new case to expose a forger, but the prime suspect isn't at all what he seems in this captivating Regency romp from a 
New York Times bestselling author.

Marjorie Wynchester has always let her siblings take the lead when it comes to planning their investigations. But someone in London is trying to pass off counterfeits, and this time she's the only one with the skill needed to find the culprit. Soon, all the evidence leads her straight to Lord Adrian Webb.

Adrian is a roguish scoundrel of the first order, but he never meant to get caught up in a forgery scheme. Especially one that’s snowballed out of control. Now a blackmailer is out to ruin him, and the most alluring woman he's ever met is trying to put him behind bars.
Every time Marjorie thinks she has Adrian figured out, her assumptions turn on their head. He’s a heartless scoundrel. A loyal brother. A smooth liar. A good kisser. Er…wait… Is winning her affections just one more attempt to avoid the law? Or is it possible he’s not such a rogue after all?

PJ's Thoughts:

My Rogue to Ruin is the fourth book in this series but the first I've read. I know! What was I thinking? I knew of the series, had seen it mentioned in various places. I know Erica Ridley is a talented author. I expected good stories once I cleared enough time (there really are not enough reading hours in a day) but nobody told me how much fun I was missing. So I'm telling you. Do not miss this book. Buy it in print, download it to your favorite reading device, check it out from your library, but go get this book, clear your schedule, and lose yourself in a fun, feel-good, Regency romp that will leave you eager to read every single book in the series. 

There's so much to love about this book. Adrian and Marjorie together are simply perfection. I adored them, both individually and as a couple. It was a delight to watch them navigate their circumstances, evolve personally, fall in love, outsmart the villains, and eventually claim their HEA. I pretty much smiled through their entire adventure. The journey is filled with sweetness, spice, suspicion, cheeky humor, danger, and emotional growth. The interactions with the other members of the Wynchester family are pure gold. Honestly, I can't get to their books fast enough. 

If you're in the mood for a fun, feel-good, can't put it down, Regency romp, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of My Rogue to Ruin by Erica Ridley. It has my wholehearted, enthusiastic, grinned until my cheeks hurt, recommendation.

  1. As you have done so many times, you have introduced me to another new to me author. And it is again evident I have missed a great deal of good reading. Thanks for the review. Thanks for the introduction to Ms Ridley. In short, you have done it again, and I appreciate it.

  2. I have not read Erica Ridley but I have several of her books on my Want To Read list. I’m currently reading How To Tame a Wild Rogue by Julie Anne Long and it does have several scenes that make me LOL.

    1. I've been reading Julie Anne Long since her third book. In other words, a long time. ;-) How to Tame a Wild Rogue is one of my top favorites of all the books she's published. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    2. I first discovered Erica Ridley awhile ago when I attended an online book event. I enjoy her books and they often are a romp! The Regency fairy tales were a favorite.

  3. I have read only the first book in this series, The Duke Heist. This book sounds like it is a hoot. The last books that made me smile (among others) were Change of Plans by Dylan Newton and Summer Reading by Jenn McKinkay. Highly recommend them both.

  4. This book sounds like such fun. I am way overdue for this type of book. I find not nearly enough time to read lately so I want to make it count. I have a few Erica Ridley books on my Kindle, but haven't yet gotten to them. It sounds like I really need to. I love suspense and intrigue, but a feel good book that is a joy to read definitely has its place. I can't remember the last time I read one.

  5. This story sounds delightful, unique and captivating. I would love this treasure. A new author so that I can get started on this wonderful series.

  6. I love Erica Ridley's Books!!!! She never disappoints when I am reading her books! I haven't started this series yet, but I have purchased most of the books so far.

  7. I don't know if I have read her books or not. Not that Duke by Eloisa James is a great book that I enjoyed very much. A Lady's Guide to Fortune-Hunting by Sophie Irwin was full of wonderful banter.

  8. I don't know if I have read her books. Not that Duke by Eloisa James was a great book that I enjoyed very much. I also enjoyed A Lady's Guide to Fortune- Hunting by Sopie Irwin is also full of wonderful banter.

  9. I have not read any of her books yet. The Rom-Com Agenda by Jayne Denker had some amusing moments in it.

  10. This sounds cute, PJ! I have some of her books on my TBR, but haven't dived in yet! And the most recent smiling from cover to cover read? My Favorite Kidnapper by Melanie Moreland--a cute take on an alpha-ish guy totally meeting his match in a creative baker who keeps him on his toes...
