One Night of Surrender is the third book in the Wicked Dukes Club series, co-written by Darcy Burke and Erica Ridley.

With the two most eligible bachelors now off the marriage market, Thaddeus Middleton is on the hunt for a wife. With a promised inheritance coming to her in a few years, Priscilla Weatherby is playing a game of pretending-to-but-not-really-looking-for-a-husband.

One rejected invitation to a dance changes everything for this pair.

This was a fun story as both characters were quite likeable. Priscilla changes the most throughout the story, and her excited attitude bounces off the pages.

But… I had some problems becoming immersed in this tale. Thad wasn’t perfect, but he was too good. He didn’t really have any flaws or problems to overcome aside from winning Priscilla over, which made the conflict of the plot somewhat one-sided. Also, while I really enjoyed the banter between Thad and Priscilla, each of their encounters left me with a feeling of a too-modern cadence of conversation. I’m used to excellent historical romances from Erica Ridley, so these issues felt very out-of-place for the author.

If you’re looking for something light and fluffy to read, this is a great book to kick back with. Just be prepared to not take its characters too seriously.

I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
