About this ebook

"Sensual and witty... A delicious, dark Gothic treat!"

- Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author

A darkly romantic gothic mystery with hidden motives and forbidden love from a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author: 


From the ravens circling its spires to the gargoyles adorning its roof, Blackberry Manor looms ominously over its rambling grounds. And behind its doors, amid the flickering shadows and secret passageways, danger lies in wait… 


Evangeline Pemberton has been invited to a party at the sprawling estate of reclusive Gavin Lioncroft, who is rumored to have killed in cold blood. Initially, his towering presence and brusque manner instill fear… until his seductive attentions and unexpected vulnerability conquer her resistance.

But when a guest is murdered, Evangeline is torn. Could the man to whom she is so powerfully drawn, also be a ruthless killer?

Too Wicked To Kiss is an amazing historical romance by Erica Ridley. Ms. Ridley has knocked one out of the park with this fabulous, well-written book. The cast of characters in this book is phenomenal and my favorite part of the story. Evangeline escaped her step-father and begged her mother's old friend to take her in. Now she finds herself at a house party where she's expected to help her friend trap Gavin Lioncroft in marriage. Gavin wants to mend the fences with his sister but he killed their parents and she doesn't let him forget. Evangeline and Gavin's story is packed with drama, humor, spice, action, suspense and a touch of supernatural. I loved this book from cover to cover and look forward to my next book by Erica Ridley. Too Wicked To Kiss is book 1 of the Gothic Love Stories Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
