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…

Meet the unforgettable men of London's most notorious tavern, The Wicked Duke. Seductively handsome, with charm and wit to spare, one night with these rakes and rogues will never be enough...

One night of passion was all she wanted – she didn’t think she needed or wanted, to get married, after all it would really interfere with her life – her requirement to remain unmarried in order to inherit a fortune. A fortune that would enable her to live well as a single female on the interest – once invested – and that would allow her to join her father and grandfather in their adventuring. But she had to behave as though she would like to get married – to attend balls and parties etc.

Erica Ridley always writes a good Regency romance and this one adds in the idea that a single female could go adventuring – if she had the money -Gertrude Bell of course is one of the most famous but she was a little later in the century. The one that really could be used as a model was Jane Elizabeth Digby (1807-1881). She managed to marry 3 times, have 5 children, and at the age of 46 married a Sheik and lived in the desert and went adventuring with him.
