Lord of Night by Erica Ridley

Miss Dahlia Grenville isn't like other proper debutantes.  She runs a home for wayward girls that has too many pupils and not enough donations.  Dahlia has the solution for her funding and is about to pull of the heist of the Season when she stumbles into the arms of Bow Street Runner, Simon Spaulding.

Simon Spaulting is a successful Bow Street Runner.  He is attempting to solve a rather unusual crime where the victim never realizes that their belongings have been taken until they receive a note.  When Simon realizes that the young woman that he has been courting is the thief behind his unsolved mystery, can he bring her to justice and risk losing her forever?

This novel is true Erica Ridley.  Well written, quick pace with characters the reader likes.  I liked how Dahlia stood up for her goals and opened the school for girls from the worst section of London.  Simon was the handsome hero that had the aristocratic bearing that comes from being the by-blow of a Marquess.  I enjoyed the Robin Hood sub-plot and the resolution.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  Thank You!
