Review

"Nicole Jordan puts the steam in steamy. A smoldering hero and delightful heroine make this a sizzling read. Don't miss it!" -- New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries

About the Author

Nicole Jordan is the nationally bestselling author of fifteen historical romances. She recently moved with her real-life hero to the Rocky Mountains of Utah, where she is at work on the next book of her scorching Notorious series–tales of dangerous rakes and bold adventurers during the Regency era.

More About the Author

"One of my all time favorite writers, Nicole Jordan delivers romance like no one else. Captivating, enticing, and irresistible, her books are always on my must buy list."--Sherrilyn Kenyon, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Nicole Jordan charms and captivates."--Jillian Hunter, New York Times bestselling author

New York Times bestselling author Nicole Jordan spins delightful tales that simmer with passion and sensuality. In her former life, Nicole grew up as an Army brat, moving frequently and attending high school in Germany. She later earned a civil engineering degree from Georgia Tech and spent eight years as a manufacturing manager making disposable diapers and toilet tissue! Currently Nicole lives in the Rocky Mountains of Utah with her real-life hero (her husband) and beloved kids (her horses).

With over two-dozen historical romances to her credit and five million books in print, set in numerous eras and locales, Nicole now enjoys chronicling the sparks that fly when Regency lovers play the matrimonial mating game.

One of her novels had the dubious honor of being humorously spotlighted by Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show." On a more serious note, Nicole's romances regularly appear on numerous bestseller lists, including The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today, and have earned such honors as RITA finalist, RWA's Favorite Book of the Year, theRomantic Times Career Achievement Award for Historical Romance, and the Dorothy Parker Award of Excellence, presented by a group of over one hundred romance reviewers.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Arabella and her sisters have worked hard to make a life for themselves since their parents' arranged marriage ended in a scandal that left the girls ostracized from society. They run and teach at their finishing school for young ladies. None of them have any desire to enter into a marriage like their parents had and are perfectly content to remain spinsters; unfortunately their new guardian has other plans for them. He intends to fulfill his obligation and find them each a suitable husband - he just hadn't counted on Arabella turning out to be such a worthy opponent - or such an enchanting one.

Marcus Pierce, the new Earl of Danvers, is well aware that finding the Loring sisters' spouses isn't going to be an easy task. He hasn't even met them yet and already he's butting heads with the eldest, Arabella. She insists that he release them from his guardianship and allow them to take care of themselves - like they've done for years. He has no intention of honoring her request, after all they are his responsibility and he does not shirk his duties.

Marcus isn't sure where he'll find suitable spouses for Arabella, Roslyn and Lillian. It would be very helpful if his friends and fellow escapees from the Marriage Mart, Andrew and Drew would be agreeable to consider marriage. He's having no luck convincing them to change their minds and certainly isn't about to get leg shackled himself. However, an unexpected appearance in his home by none other than the obstinate Arabella has him reconsidering his position. No woman has ever excited him the way Arabella does but she's determined not to marry and no amount of reasoning on Marcus's part is going to convince her otherwise.

Marcus is determined to persuade her to his way of thinking and so he issues a challenge.

Nicole Jordan's latest was very interesting, i couldn't put it down. From the story opens up you get sucked in and you instantly fall in love with characters. Arabella is fiercly independent and vows to never get married but Marcus is pesistent and eventually wears her down. I also loved the other two sisters and I can't wait until their stories are published (I would love to see Drew, Marcus' friend, taken down a notch and sincerely hope that Roslyn does it).
I'll admit that this novel isn't quite as passionate as other books by Nicole Jordan which is why i gave it 4 stars instead of 5

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Arabella Loring and her two younger sisters are determined never to marry. She and her sisters grew up constantly reminded of their parents' infidelities and the scandal that ensued when their father died following a duel and their mother abandoned them to go to France with her paramour. When Arabella learns that her new guardian, Marcus Pierce, Earl of Danvers, intends to give the three sisters generous dowries so that they can be married off and out of his hands, she is determined that he will fail.

Marcus Pierce does not want to be responsible for the guardianship that he inherited with his title. In order to get rid fo the responsibility as quickly as possible, Marcus vows that he will have them married off immediately. But when his oldest ward comes to visit him, Marcus finds himself startled by her beauty, her wit, her fiery temper, and the fact that she ignites a fire in him that he's never felt before. Before he knows what he's doing, Marcus offers Arabella a startling proposition--if she will let him court her with the intention of marriage for two weeks and she is unable to resist his charms, he will grant the Loring sisters their independence. Arabella is convinced that she won't be susceptible to Marcus's seduction, but he's equally determined to win her heart.

To Pleasure a Lady is the first in Nicole Jordan's Courtship Wars series (the next two books are To Bed a Beauty (Courtship Wars, Book 2) and To Seduce a Bride (Courtship Wars, Book 3)). It's also the first book I've read by Nicole Jordan. I have to say that this book ebbed and flowed for me.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
What could have been a steamy tension-filled guardian/ward romance fell far from its mark with Jordan's latest offering.

The main protags were one dimensional with no substance. The 'courtship' read like a itinerary in its day-by-day description. The characters didn't do anything. The tension was meant to be hot, however, it was extremely tepid. Love scenes, which Jordan is known for, were ho hum.

I kept reading and hoping with every page the book would improve; it did not. Nicole Jordan has written some stellar novels. This was not one of them.

This was an excellent book. I look forward to the next 2 in the series. I also like the idea that the 3 books are coming out one month after the other so we don't have to wait!!

Okay I guess I'm getting a little tired as well as bored with these kind of storylines. Where the heroine is irritating, childish, standoffish, and plays too many games with the hero. And then you have the hero going over and beyond trying to win the stubborn heroine even though she really isn't worth it. On top of the H/H nonsense you have a storyline that has been repeated to death by other authors but actually pulled the story off better...the storyline being the Hero bets the Heroine that he can win her within a week or two weeks or a month etc etc...pure garbage IMO. Also, the fact that the heroine was well over 21 years old and needing a guardian is absurd....I don't know much about that era but I do know you can't force a 24 year old woman who is absolutely no relations to you to actually marry. Is he going to take care of her and boss her around when she's 40...I don't think Nicole Jordan writing is up to the standards of my taste in reading.
